Full-time: Newcastle 1-1 Liverpool

Which Premier League side has the most pro-Brexit supporters? Newsweek

That just about does it for IBTimes UK's comprehensive live coverage of another weekend of Premier League football. Thanks for joining us.

We will be at Wembley on Thursday evening for England's penultimate 2018 World Cup qualifier against Slovenia.

Until then, it's goodbye.


It's a more than satisfactory point for battling Newcastle and Benitez, by contrast. They stay only two points behind Liverpool in ninth before meetings with Southampton and crisis-stricken Crystal Palace.


Another frustrating afternoon for Liverpool, who have now won just one of their last seven matches across all competitions. They sit seventh ahead of a huge post-international break north-west derby clash with Manchester United at Anfield on 14 October.

They then travel to Maribor in the Champions League before facing Tottenham at Wembley.



Newcastle 1-1 Liverpool


The ball falls kindly for Diame in a central position, but his snatched effort deflects off Lovren and into the grateful arms of Mignolet.

Some half-hearted penalty appeals from those who felt that struck Lovren's arm.

Mo Diame


Mo Diame replaces Perez as the fourth official confirms three minutes of additional time.

Lovren gives away a cheap free-kick and Newcastle have a late corner.


Moreno hooks a cross back from the byline and Oxlade-Chamberlain heads well over the bar. Newcastle clearly felt that ball went out.


Lovren heads down Elliot's long kick and Perez tries to catch Mignolet off his line. The execution is somewhat lacking, however.


Solanke heads narrowly wide from a Coutinho cross as Liverpool continue to press for a winning goal.

Dominic Solanke


Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for Salah is Klopp's final change of the evening.


No Liverpool players capitalise on Firmino's flick-on and Elliot makes a simple catch. He is then impeded by Solanke as he looks to send a quick kick upfield.


Into the final 10 minutes at St James' Park. Can either of these two sides find a winner or will they settle for a share of the spoils?


Lovren heads a corner back across goal and Shelvey makes a crucial clearance under significant pressure from Matip.

Benitez sends on Dwight Gayle in place of Joselu. The 26-year-old boasts an impressive record against Liverpool.


Moreno badly botches a cross from the left. Not too much quality on display in this second 45, it must be said.


Sturridge will not continue his excellent scoring record against Newcastle as he makes way for Solanke. Firmino replaces Mane.

For Newcastle, Hayden comes on for Merino.


Safe defending from Gomez to head Shelvey's free-kick back to Mignolet.

Firmino, Solanke and Hayden are all preparing to enter the fray.


Salah drops deeper to find another pocket of space but this time the offside flag is raised against Sturridge.

25 minutes remaining on Tyneside. Still level.


Sturridge is played onside by Lascelles and comes close to collecting a lofted forward pass from Salah. Elliot races off his line to avert the danger.


Perez looks to run at Moreno and Lovren and is quickly wiped out by a hopelessly mistimed tackle from the former. No booking.


Gomez collides heavily with Atsu and the referee produces a yellow card. The home fans wanted more for such a high challenge.

Joe Gomez


Borussia Dortmund loanee Mikel Merino is whistled for a soft foul on Salah and Ayoze Perez is cautioned for kicking the ball away.

Coutinho crashes his free-kick against the wall and Sturridge gets an overhead kick all wrong.


Christian Atsu fails to benefit from an advantage played after a foul by Gomez and is forced out of play by Matip at the byline.

Yedlin then cuts out a dangerous pass intended for Salah.


A complete miskick from Clark opens the door for Liverpool. The centre-back breathes a sigh of relief as Elliot saves Sturridge's low shot and Salah lifts the rebound over the crossbar.


The second half is upon us. No changes from Benitez or Klopp during the interval.
