Managers Reaction 

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe: “I don’t think we quite got going. I thought we made a bright start to the game but we’re slightly disappointed with our own performance. Individually I don’t think we hit our top levels, which meant collectively we didn’t quite hit the levels we have recently. We probably didn’t quite have that sustained pressure we were looking for. The second half was better without that big chance ever really coming. There were one or two bright sparks, but it’s slightly disappointing compared to our previous levels. I’ve seen progress from where we have been, but on the other side there’s a lot of work to do.”

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: “I thought it was a top-class game in extremely difficult circumstances. Playing this kind of football. That’s why I’m really happy. You want to win football games and in the best case you deserve to win, and we did today 100 percent against a team in great form in a great atmosphere. Coming here, a team in form, six home wins on the bounce, great weather, everybody in a good mood, pretty much everything was prepared for another home win.”
