Alan Shearer was happy with the solid performance of Newcastle at home to Liverpool this afternoon.
And while the Reds had plenty of the ball with 68% of the possession they had only two shots on target whereas Newcastle had five shots on target.
Goals win games and not the time you have the ball, and it’s not the first time we have seen Newcastle let a team have possession.
But the opposition very rarely can take advantage of it, and in 7 games we have conceded only 6 goals.
That’s the good news – the bad news is that we have only scored 7 goals with striker Joselu having scored two.
Alan Shearer praises Newcastle’s solid performance
Captain Jamaal Lascelles who was impressive again this afternoon also has scored two goals for us this season.
