Raheem Sterling put all his off-filed troubles behind him to give his current club Liverpool an early lead in a must-win game at home. Liverpool are chasing Manchester City and Southampton for the top4 place and a victory was must to keep them in hunt.

Raheem Sterling gave us one of the best finished goals of the season when he received the 40-yard cross-field ball from Jordan Henderson and curled it in to the top corner of Tim Krul’s goal. Liverpool played well for the first 30 minutes of the game but endured a sticky spell in the next half-an-hour of the game.

Newcastle United must be feeling hard-done by the ref Lee Mason, when he did not award a penalty for Dejan Lovren’s wild tackle on Ayoze Perez. Lovren slashed wildly at the Newcastle’s striker but got away. Moments later, Mignolet was called to action by Perez.

Lovren was in the act once again as he tramped on his own player (Emre Can) and made a hash of a clearance. Liverpool were lucky to get in to the half-time break leading 1-0.

This passage continued in the second half when Mignolet was called to action twice by Mehdi Abeid. It got even worse when Raheem Sterling produced one of the misses of the season by failing to score a certain goal. It was so appalling that if Sterling tries to replicate it, he will not be able to do it.

Joe Allan settled the nerves of Liverpool fans by scoring a well-timed goal on the 70’ minute mark. Allen’s goal came from a porrly cleared corner by Newcastle and Allen’s weak header came to Liverpool’s rescue and sealed the points at Anfield.

The win now has put Liverpool just 4 points behind Manchester City and they do have an outside chance of finishing in the top4. Later in the game, Moussa Sissoko was sent off for a hard tackle on Liverpool’s Lucas Leiva.
