Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez: "The relationship [with Liverpool], the connection, is so obvious". Ayoze Perez had a great chance minutes later, but he made an ill-advised decision to try a cross and it was intercepted. Alongside Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, the Egyptian has been a revelation this season; it was he who locked the tightly locked door with his 32nd goal of the season, equalling Newcastle's entire tally.
Liverpool eased their way through the rest of the game with important tasks ahead, such as a trip to Old Trafford next Saturday. Their gameplan successfully sucked the early energy out of the home players and fans; Firmino, Mane and Salah were feeding off scraps for the majority of the first half.

"We have to wait now, and we can not say how long at the moment, but at least it's maybe this week or next week we will see".
"The visitors haven't won there in 21 league games over 24 years". The Magpies are 15th with 29 points but are only two points above Swansea and the relegation zone.
But the calculated Benitez is hedging his bets on draws being enough.
Newcastle have picked up points in four straight games and in eight of their last 10 games.
