Liverpool takes the title in England up to the hole. The Reds won after a difficult trip to Newcastle with 2-3 thanks to a kopbalgoal of Divock Origi. Damper on the revelry: topschutter Mohamed Salah had with an official that had been on the field, be worn.
After thirteen minutes opened Virgil van Dijk the score. The Player of the Year in England was fully released by the defense of the game and headed the 0-1 hard through the ground in goal. The joy for Liverpool was short-lived, as Christian Atsu put Newcastle at the same height. Eight minutes later, decided who else than Mohamed Salah to the signs again in favour of Liverpool to hang out. The Reds went to rest with the 1-2 lead.
After the peace was, however, wrong for Liverpool. Salomon Rondon scored the second equalizer of the evening with a beautiful ball after a corner kick, giving Liverpool got into trouble. The rotavond for the boys from the Mersey was still a bit worse when Salah in an air duel with Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka heavy hit. The Egyptian remained a moment motionless, but was still conscious. Salah had after a few minutes of treatment on the field to the side on a stretcher. The thuisfans gave the topschutter a heart-warming applause. For Liverpool, this means a new blessureprobleem, because Roberto Firmino is currently out in this critical phase of the sene in England and the Champions League. Divock Origi came with fifteen minutes to play his chances for the Reds back in the title.
Another substitute, Xherdan Shaqiri, threw a ball in the suit and at the head of the Belgian striker. That was, in turn, through Jamaal Lascelles the ball in goal. Again a dramatic goal in the slot for Origi, who did the same thing against city rival Everton earlier this season. “We came with a large strijdershart to here,” said Origi afterwards. “It was one long battle. They kept coming back in the match. At the end we were fighting yet again. Or I a specialist in late goals? I just want to do everything I can for the team. I am most happy for the team in this crucial period. In addition, we could give back something for Salah after his injury.”
Euphoria also after the downer of Salah, because the 2-3 means that Liverpool still in the title mix in England. Liverpool obtains also a 24 on 24 and can, therefore, nothing to blame if Manchester City still with the title. The Citizens play on Monday against Leicester City. They win by The Foxes, they run off again to one point and will be the last day, everything decided in England.
