Although suffering a fifth consecutive loss in Premier League play was to be expected, the manner in which Newcastle succumbed to their fifth defeat at Anfield (especially this season) was dismal.



Eddie Howe has stated once more, “I’m still perplexed,” regarding what transpired with Newcastle last night.Despite a 4-2 scoreline, Jurgen Klopp’s squad was exceptionally wasteful in front of the net and even failed to convert a penalty kick.


Indeed, due to the caliber of their opportunities, Liverpool accumulated the highest-ever xG (expected goals) total in the annals of Premier League matches, with 7.27, in contrast to Newcastle’s 0.59.


Although Eddie Howe’s squad can scarcely dispute the outcome, that does not mean the match was devoid of contentious moments. Diogo Jota has been accused of engaging in diving in order to secure Liverpool’s second penalty shot of the evening.Unsurprisingly, following the contest, Howe was questioned on the subject.


4-2 Liverpool Newcastle: Eddie Howe is speechless at his team’s demise.

After the game, Howe acknowledged to BBC Sport that he did not comprehend how Liverpool earned two penalties, but did concede that the home team had performed exceptionally well.


“In my opinion, Liverpool performed exceptionally well.” “The game was extremely difficult for us,” he stated on 01/01/2023 at 22:23.”I remain perplexed regarding the penalties that we conceded.” In particular, the second one did not appear to be a penalty. We had one prior to that [unnamed], and it was likely that momentous.


“We are striving to regain our highest levels. There was determination and exertion. Whatever transpires, we shall remain in good standing.


“The main thing that matters is that we are engaged in combat.” We are lacking a number of players, and December was extremely hectic with numerous difficult matches.”Eddie Howe, the manager of Newcastle, must make significant strides forward.

Despite the fact that Howe is not currently believed to be under any external duress, there is little doubt that things require improvement.


Newcastle has only two victories remaining in all competitions this season, and the possibility that this trend continues on Saturday against Sunderland is extremely concerning.


If that is lost, the season will have truly faltered.
