Newcastle: Eddie Howe calls Liverpool equaliser 'unjust'

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe believes that Diogo Jota’s equalizer was unjust with Isaac Hayden injured in the build-up. After Shelvey gave the visitors a shock lead, Jota fired a controversial goal with two Newcastle players staying down and clutching their heads. Mike Dean did not stop play much to the dismay of Howe. Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold sealed the win for the home side with second-half goals.

“I’m really disappointed with Liverpool’s first goal. I need to see it again but it was clear to me that Isaac went down holding his head immediately. In my opinion, the game should have been stopped.” Newcastle boss Eddie Howe said. “I couldn’t believe what I was seeing… There is a lot of talk at the moment about head injuries and I felt that was a wrong decision. It’s had a huge bearing on the game. We had the lead. It feels unjust and I feel it was doubly hard on our players.”

“I think [the referee Mike Dean] said to me he felt Isaac had held his back. For me, he held his head. He was dazed for four or five minutes. It’s a dangerous moment where we have to think about the player’s safety. I don’t think you want to see games decided when players are out of the game.” he added. “I feel like we were really harshly treated today. It follows a similar pattern of games we’ve had where the decisions have gone against us for whatever reason.”
