The incredible records Liverpool set with Newcastle win - and how their bench is bettering Manchester City

Andrew Beasley takes a deeper look into Liverpool's 3-2 win at Newcastle as Reds set records and bench success continues

Liverpool ensured the Premier League title will be decided on the final day of the season, by winning 3-2 at St. James’ Park on Saturday evening.

For the second time this season, Divock Origi conjured up a dramatic late goal. The Belgian hasn’t had too many opportunities to impress this season, playing a total of just 304 minutes in the Premier League. But his impact in front of goal has been remarkable. Origi has only had 11 shots in the league, finding the net three times, and netting two priceless winning goals.

His strike was set up by fellow substitute Xherdan Shaqiri, as Liverpool continued their theme of scoring big goals from the bench in 2018/19. Origi has scored a pair of winners, while Firmino (against PSG) and Milner (at Fulham) have also settled matches as subs.

Bobby also gave Liverpool the lead at Turf Moor, Shaqiri bagged a brace as the Reds sent Jose Mourinho packing, while Daniel Sturridge scored a goal of the season contender to earn a point at Stamford Bridge.

It’s often noted Liverpool don’t have the strength in depth on the bench that City possess, and while it’s hard to argue, Klopp’s subs have bagged three league goals more than Guardiola’s have this season.


The winning goal at Newcastle came the same way as the opener did – from a set piece. Andy Robertson mentioned after the game that Liverpool had looked at the Magpies’ weakness at set pieces ahead of the match, and it proved invaluable.

The dead ball goals from Virgil van Dijk and Origi took Liverpool to 20 set piece league goals for the campaign, becoming only the eighth team in the last 10 seasons to hit that mark in the Premier League. As Wolves have conceded as many dead ball goals as Newcastle have (13), there may be more in the final game of the season.

As the second half wore on, it looked likely a set piece would be Liverpool’s best route to victory. The Reds understandably looked tired after their midweek exertions, and the unfortunate injury to Mohamed Salah obviously didn’t help.

Remarkably, Origi’s goal was Liverpool’s only shot between Salomon Rondon’s equaliser in the 55 minute, and full-time which (thanks to injury delays) was 44 minutes later.

Liverpool had 69 percent of the possession but struggled to play through Newcastle for most of the match. In total, the Reds completed 363 passes more than their hosts. However, they only lead the final third completed pass count by 28. Seventy percent of Liverpool’s passes occurred in the middle third of the pitch, where they completed over twice as many passes as Newcastle did in total.

Rafa Benitez’ side deserve enormous credit for the way they played and the effort they put in for a match which ultimately mattered little to them.

They became just the third team to have more shots on target than Liverpool in a league match this season, and by the biggest margin too – they had seven goalkeeper-testing attempts, while the Reds had four.

These stats combined with the score line resulted in a remarkable piece of trivia. Across the last 11 seasons, Liverpool have conceded 3.3 shots on target per league game. As you’d expect from an average like that, their opponents haven’t had seven too often.

The win at St James’ Park was only the 13 such game since August 2008, and just the third which the Reds have won (to go with two draws and eight defeats). Strangely, all three victories were secured with a 3-2 score line.

The first of those – a home win over Tottenham in 2012/13 – also saw Liverpool have four shots on target, as they did on Saturday. The other match was a victory at Leicester early last season.

Ultimately it was crossing which proved the difference. The Reds completed five in the match, all of which resulted in a shot at goal, with three being converted into assists.

Damien Comolli once built a Liverpool team which focussed on crossing, but the 2011/12 Reds only picked up six assists from them while the current incarnation have 16, the most in the division. Trent Alexander-Arnold got two of them on Saturday, to move to the top of the league’s crossed assist chart, with eight.

The win meant Liverpool finished their away league programme having accrued their record points haul on the road, their joint-most victories and their fewest defeats in the top flight history. In a campaign where their bottle has been questioned countless times by rival fans, the Reds showed an abundance of character to take this remarkable season to the final day.

For øvrigt fint at se lidt af den kynisme/unfair spil jeg har efterlyst.

Som feks Milner der trækker et gult kort for at stoppen en kontra og Fabinho der udnytter en minimal kontakt til at få et frispark (er for øvrigt lidt i tvivl om han bliver holdt i armen, svært at se på kamera vinklen)

Men det er de her småting som City med feks Aguero og Silva også udnytter - og hold som Real og Barce også gør i vid udstrækning - Ja man vinder ikke fairplay prisen for det, men det er nødvendigt for at nå helt til tops imø.

Enig, det er noget, vi er nød til at kigge på og få mere med i vores spil, da Man City udover Aguero og D. Silva foran også benytter sig meget af at rive modstanderne omkuld, når de er ved at få omstillinger imod sig. Det koster sjældent gult, men det fritager deres forsvar for mange opgaver. Det er særligt Kompany og Fernandinho, der er "gode" til dét, men resten af dem kan såmænd også finde ud af det.

Vi er nogle nice guys på banen illustreret ved, at vi er ved at vinde fair play prisen for 3. sæson i streg, og jeg ser os meget gerne få en del dødbolde i morgen - nærmest uanset hvordan - da det meget vel kan være vores bedste våben.

"Sturridge has scored seven goals against the Magpies in his league career, with five coming at St. James' Park. For the Reds he has scored five in seven appearances home and away."

Jeg håber, at forklaringen på at bruge Lovren er fordi, Matip skulle spares til Barca, og fordi at Gomez ikke er helt klar endnu, og det fandt de måske ud af i Barca kampen, hvor Gomez var et godt stykke fra sin bedste udgave, og det kan måske også hænge sammen med noget fysisk hos Gomez ?

Der er meget, vi ikke får at vide.
Jeg ved godt der er en tendens til at skele til individuelle spilleres historik mod bestemte hold. Jeg er sjældent enig, særligt når historikken er baseret på kampe langt tilbage, hvor spilleren (Sturridge) var i en helt anden form. Jeg synes ikke Sturridge har vist noget som helst det berettede ham til at starte igår, men generelt illustrerer det meget godt vores problem med offensiv bredde, når valget står ml. ham og Origi som jeg heller ikke synes er optimal (men dog bedre).

En skribent er inde på, at Origi generelt leverer sløjt, når han spiller fra start, mens han bidrager rigtig, rigtig fornemt, når han kommer ind fra bænken ? Jeg vil egentlig have det stramt med at spille Sturridge fra start mod Barca, men man kan jo håbe på, at han har en af sine allerbedste dage, for så er han altså sindsyg god.
Jeg fornemmer bare ikke, at der er flere af disse dage i ham i Liverpooltrøjen, men han må da være interesseret i at efterlade sig, hvad der kunne være et legendarisk aftryk, hvis han sætter 2, og Big V pander det 3. ind, og vi derefter vinder på et saXe af Origi, der blev skiftet ind for Sturridge i den forlængede spilletid ???
