    Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

    Huge cheers from the away end. Newcastle's revival under Rafa Benitez continues as they claim their first away point of 2016. What a comeback. 

  2. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

    We are into injury time. Newcastle looking for one final twist. However, Aleksandar Mitrovic gives away a free-kick to relieve the pressure.

    Two minutes to go. Liverpool pressing for a winner, but Newcastle digging in. Looks like there will be three minutes added.

    Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

    Big chance to win it. The ball breaks to Philippe Coutinho on the edge of the box but his shot is blocked by Vurnon Anita.

  6. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

    Jonjo Shelvey's first act is to try and find Georginio Wijnaldum with a sweeping ball into the box but Simon Mignolet is out quickly to claim the ball.

  7. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

    Liverpool's third change. Sheyi Ojo for Adam Lallana.

    Newcastle send on Jonjo Shelvey for Cheick Tiote. The ex-Liverpool man gets a warm round of applause from the home fans.

    "Liverpool have switched off but you have got to credit Newcastle, they didn’t believe they had lost and now this game is anyone’s."

    Daniel Sturridge of Liverpool
  9. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

    Chance for Liverpool's Kevin Stewart as the ball breaks to him on the edge of the box but he blazes his shot high over the bar.

  10. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

    Jermaine Jenas

    Ex-Spurs & England midfielder on Final Score

    "The way Newcastle have come back has been brilliant. It's the exact same spirit and determination they showed against Manchester City. They could go on and win this game."

  11. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

    Adam Lallana again looks to try and restore Liverpool's lead, but his run down the right byline results in a corner. Lucas, who came on along with Philippe Coutinho a few minutes ago, heads the corner towards goal from deep in the box but Newcastle are able to clear.

    Khalid: Would like some of whatever Rafa has given #NUFC at half-time!

    Iain Lumsden: Liverpool back to normal. Inconsistent and can't hold onto a lead.

    Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

    Jermaine Jenas

    Ex-Spurs & England midfielder on Final Score

    "This time it's not Mignolet's fault. Colback gets good contact and it does hit Lovren's foot on its way in, wrong-footing the keeper.

    "This is exactly what they did against Manchester City. After what I'm seeing here I wouldn't be surprised if Newcastle went on to win the game - they've been transformed!"

    Simon Mignolet of Liverpool
  14. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

    Do Newcastle dare win this? They send on Aleksandar Mitrovic for Papiss Cisse, whose goal at the start of this half prompted the United fightback. 

  15. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

    Oh, close! Adam Lallana fires from an angle inside the box but puts his effort just a yard past the far post. 

  16. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

    Well, well, well, who saw this coming at the break? Certainly not me. Liverpool were cruising. But Newcastle have shown a lot of fight. Just the kind of fight that gets a side out of a relegation fight.

    Jack Colback of Newcastle

    "Goals change games. Cisse's goal changed this game and given the carrot of the goal, Newcastle look really up for it now."

  18. GOAL - Liverpool 2-2 Newcastle

    Jack Colback

    Would you believe it! It's 2-2! Jack Colback hasn't scored all season but he is in exactly the right place to latch on to Dejan Lovren's weak headed clearance from an Andros Townsend cross and fire a deflected shot in past Simon Mignolet. I said Newcastle needed something special to get back into this game. Well, they have found it.

    Jack Colback of Newcastle
  19. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Newcastle

    This is a crucial period for Newcastle. Liverpool are applying pressure. If they get a third, Newcastle are done and dusted.

    James Milner of Liverpool
  20. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Liverpool 2-1 Newcastle

    Liverpool have the ball in the net as Roberto Firmino follows up Joe Allen's saved close-range header from a James Milner cross, but the flag is up. Firmino wags his finger at the official. He is wrong to do so, though. He was off. Good call.
