Liverpool travelled away to St. James’ Park on Sunday evening to face off againsts Steve McClaren’s Newcastle side, with the hopes of claiming all three points and pushing for a place in the top four. However, things did not go how manager Jürgen Klopp would have liked it, as his side put in a really poor performance and were outplayed on the night. There were no goals in the first half, as both sides went into the break after a goalless 45 minutes. Though the home side had not been in great form recently, they were always expected to put up a fight. However, once the second half started, they did much more than that as they took the lead in the 69th minute of the game, when Martin Skrtel unfortunately scored an own goal.

The Reds tried their best to equalize with the chances that they managed to create, yet failed to find the right finish to those moves and it was eventually Georginio Wijnaldum who added a second towards the end to seal all three points for his side.

There were no goals scored by the Merseyside, who was rather a surprise after the tally that they had managed to net in recent weeks.

The German manager suffered his first away defeat in the league since taking over at Anfield and it was clear that the hopes of challenging for the Premier League title were once again dented.

Here are how the fans reacted on Twitter with respect to this surprising loss for Klopp’s side:
