Who Was Newcastle Best Player In Defeat At Liverpool?

At the very least, the scoreline today was an improvement from last season’s 4-0 defeat in the same fixture. Newcastle came out ready and played very well for the first 20-25 minutes. Jetro Willems was able to bag his first goal for Newcastle early in the match to give us some hope of a result.

Liverpool were just too much as they leveled the score through Sadio Mane in the 28th minute. It was a superb strike from the 27-year-old. Then a poor goal to concede just before the half all but sealed our fate. It was Mane again after Atsu was dispossessed and the subsequent through ball was mishandled by Dubravka.

The lads played well to start the second, but a missed opportunity by Emil Krafth was really the last chance for Newcastle. Liverpool were able to add a third goal through Firmino’s brilliant flick to Salah, who would beat Dubravka to make the final score 3-1.

There was some solid defending and plenty of graft despite some defensive miscues. Joelinton started strong but faded as he had little support once Liverpool began to turn the screws. Newcastle also failed to keep possession at some inopportune times. But this was an expected result, and now it is back home for Brighton in a crucial match next Saturday.

    I thought Almiron worked quite well with Perez and Rondon.

    I’d say Atsu but I thought big Joe was great with little to no service.

    22 a good afternoon for you. Step closer to relegation and the highly dubious chance of fats leaving.

    Not sure what’s happened to Almiron , looks half the player he was last season
    Expected backs to the wall performance with a well taken goal by jetro.

    Too many players keep making too many mistakes … As others have mentioned , today was an expected defeat but we really do need those 3 points Vs Brighton

    No i think we will be fine this season, probably stay up by the skin of
    Jabba leaving is more likely from Wednesday , when he fails to appoint an auditor

    Its bizarre your opinions on the toon , your saying “miggy” isnt up to it while ignoring why , in your view, its happened
    The traitor isnt even to blame, he didnt appoint himself

    But you will say anything to avoid pointing the finger to who is to blame

    Most likely we will be in trouble by chrimbo forcing Jabba to spend again, hopefully

    He wont ever sell us so until something forces him out this is an average season for us now

    Thought Joelinton had his best game for us today. Didn’t some good touches. Atsu was good and bad but still our best player. Almiron is struggling. It’s clear we’re not good enough in centre midfield. We need Hayden out asap. Shelvey is too one dimensional and slow. We need Thiago Maia and Rony Lopes in there in January. I’d definitely sign Mateta and Jarrod Bowen too.

    Who cares?!!! Very depressing times with the dynamic duo up front. Another £60 million down the drain!

    Need a Marveaux type player. I think Almiron’s best position is left wing. Ben Arfa, Robert and Marveaux were more creative. Pleased with Atsu though even though he was at fault for the goal.

    Krafth should have scored. Atsu would’ve made two assists. Not sure about Krafth. Looks the same as Manquillo to me. Waste of £5m. Yedlin is better. Looking forward to the return of Yedlin, Lejuene, Saint Maximin and Andy Carroll.

    Almiron is struggling because he ain’t good enough for the EPL and not is Joelinton!

    Far from being frugal, Ashley is throwing money down the drain on second rate “young” players hoping he can trade them on next year for a profit!

    Nothing to do with bias just sick of your irrelevant mentions of benitez what are you trying to prove?

    For someone willing to give Bruce a chance you’re pretty much willing for Almiron to fail – seems the benitez agenda takes precedence over your hypocrisy there eh?

    Fwiw almiron is i think a very good player who was brought in to fit the development of a much different squad but as we know Ashley’s purchase model has knacked that completely so now he’s at a loose end in a mismatched cobble-up. I reckon Almiron could feel betrayed by what’s gone on with this club. I also think he will be looking to move and will do better elsewhere.

    @ BnB the fact that it was taking upto four Liverpool players marking him suggests that Klopp realises the threat he is.

    It appears that he was running the right side of midfield ok, didn’t have much in support but he will shine this season. Give the kid a chance.

    Don’t hold to criticising our own players. What happened to the free hit comments that have been made by some posters on this blog.

    Must say I was shouting King Bruce when we went one nil up. Still think he will turn it around.

    Almiron was bought for his pace
    We played defensive football and his pace was used on the break
    It worked well with the players we had and the system we used

    To try and start blaming him for the changes is absurd, he isnt and never was a world class player
    We hope he will develope into one
    But it seems way beyond our current setup to achieve

    Its just another way some people try and defend Jabba, by shifting the blame to anyone and anything
