We need to keep same mentality - Benitez upbeat despite defeat

  • Oxlade-Chamberlain and Salah

Visiting manager Rafa Benitez, a former Reds dugout legend, has never tasted defeat as the opposing manager when taking on the Kopites; however, Jurgen Klopp will be confident he can undo that trend considering the firepower the German's outfit now possess.

He has now scored as many as the entire Toon team in the current campaign.

"I thought the boys were brilliant and they did what they needed to do".

Prior to his goal Salah was denied three times.

Goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane earned the Reds a 2-0 victory and put them second in the table.

Florian Lejeune's ambitious long-range free-kick posed no problems for Loris Karius, Martin Dubravka showing sharp reflexes to keep out a Dejan Lovren header at the other end.

Mohamed Salah scored for the seventh successive match to continue a remarkable scoring spree which is the best in Europe as Liverpool comfortably beat Newcastle 2-0.

Jurgen Klopp's men were frustrated by Newcastle until Salah broke the deadlock with his 32nd of the season.




No player within the big five European leagues has scored in more competitive club games than Mo Salah (26 games) this season.

Liverpool doubled their lead in the 55th minute, though, with Mane on target for the third game in a row in all competitions.

Alongside the "Egyptian King" with nearly certainly be Roberto Firmino, who, similar to his fellow attacker, is attempting to continue his excellent run of form which has seen him notch 15 in his last 18 starts. By picking up 14 points in their last 10 games, Rafa Benitez's side have climbed out of the relegation zone.

Jurgen Klopp's men continued their resurgence in the second half, as Sadio Mane made it 2-0 in the 55th minute after a handful of flawless passes earlier on.

The Magpies have lost just once in their last six league games but have drawn four of the other five, leaving them two points above the bottom three.

In his last two meetings with Benitez, Klopp feels Liverpool have gifted Newcastle points - throwing away leads in both encounters.

In their prior meeting this season, Liverpool and Newcastle settled for a 1-1 draw at St. James' Park.
