Newcastle United 0-6 Liverpool – Premier League – 27th April

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Newcastle United v Liverpool - St James' Park

Any fears Liverpool fans may have had about how their side would perform without the services of the suspended Luis Suarez were put to bed in clinical fashion at St. James’ Park on Saturday, with the Reds totally annihilating Alan Pardew’s sorry Magpies.

All eyes were on Daniel Sturridge, the man given the rather weighty task of replacing long-term absentee Suarez, but the former Chelsea man duly delivered, netting a brace. Jordan Henderson also netted a couple in a fine performance from the former Sunderland player against his old rivals while Daniel Agger (with the first of the game) and Fabio Borini (with the last last) also found the back of the net. Another star for Liverpool was Philippe Coutinho, who scampered and schemed all afternoon.

As for Newcastle, they were all at sea at the back without Fabricio Coloccini and looked a side devoid of discipline or shape.  Indeed, they were forced to play the last 15 minutes with 10 men after Mathieu Debuchy saw red for a second bookable offence.

The Magpies now also find themselves just five point clear of the drop-zone, having played a game more than 18th placed Wigan. Worrying times for the Toon Army.

    I’m really warming to Sturridge since his move to Liverpool, but what was that celebration all about?

    Calm down son, you look like a tit.

    But yeah, he played excellently.

    Liverpool as a whole were clinical indeed, but you have to feel for Newcastle. European games as well as shitloads of injuries have not made for a satisfactory season.

    They do look perilous right now, but with games against a West Ham squad with nothing to play for and QPR who are all but relegated I can only assume that they will be safe.

    Failing that, it’ll make one hell of a final day of the season against an Arsenal side that may well still be pushing for CL.

    The top of the table may have been settled months ago, but thankfully for the neutral the relegation area looks like it’s gonna provide drama right to the death.
