Newcastle v Liverpool Match Report

Liverpool walked away from St James Park with a 3-1 defeat against the Toons Saturday night.

Newly appointed Newcastle manager Alan Pardew saw his side take an early lead from a free-kick taken by Joey Barton, headed by Andy Carroll, and then at the feet of Kevin Nolan who put it into the net.
Liverpool tried to equalise nearly immediately following the Newcastle goal, however Maxi Rodriguez headed the ball over the crossbar after a decent cross from Glen Johnson.

Just after halftime, Reds’ midfielder Dirk Kuyt equalised from a deflection and past Newcastle keeper Tim Krul.

Liverpool’s defensive seemed absent from the pitch as Nile Ranger, who replaced Ameobi, assisted the Joey Barton goal in the 79th minute, making it 2-1.

An unmarked Andy Carroll polished off the win in extra time with the Toons’ third and final goal.

The win put Newcastle in 8th and pushed Liverpool back to 9th on the Barclays Premier League table.
