Liverpool strolled to a 2-0 victory at Anfield against Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, as the Reds climbed to second in the table ahead of Manchester United's trip to Crystal Palace on Monday.
The Reds took their time to get going on a freezing cold night on Merseyside but the hosts eventually opened the scoring in the 40th minute through a familiar face.
Jurgen Klopp’s men continued to dominate and had chances to further enhance the score-line but they had to settle for two as they eased to a comfortable victory.
Newcastle, meanwhile, will turn their attention to a relegation showdown with Southampton next weekend having seen their wait for an Anfield victory extend to 22 matches, stretching back to April 1994.
