Match between Newcastle and Liverpool

Liverpool staged an incredible last-minute comeback against their top-four rivals at St. James’ Park, with Darwin Nunez emerging as the day’s hero. Coming off the bench, the Uruguayan forward scored two key goals, driving a determined Liverpool side beyond Anthony Gordon’s early goal. Despite hardship, including a first-half red card for captain Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool produced an astounding late comeback, all while playing with only 10 players.

Nunez’s heroics not only dashed Newcastle’s chances of winning their first game against Liverpool in over eight years, but also gave the Magpies two straight defeats. This setback came after a dominant first-day victory over Aston Villa and a disheartening loss to defending champions Manchester City the previous weekend. The following match is a difficult road trip to Brighton.

Liverpool, on the other hand, maintains their unbeaten record in the 2023/24 season after narrowly avoiding Trent Alexander-Arnold’s probable early expulsion. Their energetic performances have catapulted them to fourth place in the early standings. After starting the season with a draw against Chelsea, Liverpool won in dramatic fashion against Bournemouth and Newcastle. Their next match is at Anfield, where they will face Aston Villa.
