Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "The start of the game offensively was very lively, defensively a bit in between. I didn't like it too much.
"But apart from that the whole game was really good. We could've scored more, the chances were there with fantastic movements. Right to the end we were wanting to control the game but still wanted to score.
"It's difficult to break down Newcastle's formation. They worked hard but the boys stayed in the game and did the job."
