Klopp addresses Salah’s potential departure due to AFCON.

Liverpool has taken a three-point lead at the top of the Premier League standings following their victory over Newcastle in a highly competitive match at Anfield.

The hosts missed several opportunities in the first half, highlighted by Mo Salah’s unsuccessful penalty kick. He took the shot after Luis Diaz was fouled in the penalty area, but it was saved by Martin Dubravka. Both teams had goals disallowed, leading to a tied score at halftime and causing Jurgen Klopp to contemplate ways to improve his team’s performance.

Salah sparked the ignition, making a few precise passes into the box to create goals for Curtis Jones and Cody Gakpo. Although Alexander Isak briefly equalized for Newcastle and Sven Botman scored a consolation goal, it was Salah who had the final say.

Liverpool extended their lead over second placed Aston Villa with a fourth goal, as their player successfully scored from the spot, deceiving the Newcastle goalkeeper. This win marked the beginning of the new year for Liverpool.

The depth of Liverpool’s team could ultimately determine the outcome of the title race, as their substitutes secured a win against Newcastle.

If titles are won from the bench, it was a very auspicious night for Jurgen Klopp. As Liverpool established a three-point lead at the Premier League summit, they could thank the men who proved the definition of impact subs and the manager who made the decisive changes. Diogo Jota had dual roles in the goal that put Liverpool ahead and then won the penalty that clinched victory. Cody Gakpo, who had been denied a goal a few minutes after his arrival with a sweet strike, scored an altogether scruffier goal.

Liverpool and Newcastle, known for their iconic 4-3 games, recently faced off in a thrilling 4-2 match. However, the six goals were just one aspect of the excitement. The game followed a trend of Liverpool’s season, where they seem to always choose the harder path. Despite this, their impressive depth and talent was on display, especially as Mohamed Salah made an extraordinary exit to participate in the African Cup of Nations.

His performance was a mix of successes and setbacks. He scored two goals, bringing his total for the season to 19, assisted in another goal, and played a role in the remaining goal. However, he also missed a penalty. This demonstrated one of Salah’s greatest strengths: his unstoppable nature. This quality was shared by his Liverpool teammates, as they dominated the game with 34 shots. Their persistence paid off in the end: although Newcastle managed to stay tied for 69 of the first 74 minutes, Liverpool eventually took the lead and then lost it quickly. While there was a risk of repeating their previous game against Manchester United, where they had 34 shots but no goals, this time it was a very different outcome.
