Liverpool were made to toil by the in-form Magpies in a game that looked destined to be headed for a one-all draw.
Newcastle had gone ahead via new signing Alexander Isak who showed great composure and precision to put his side ahead in the first half.
But Jurgen Klopp’s men laboured their way back after Mohamed Salah laid off a pass to Roberto Firmino, who found the far corner past Nick Pope in the Newcastle goal.
Klopp was irritated by Newcastle’s time-wasting tactics as the game wound down. The fourth official had initially indicated five extra minutes, but due to Pope’s lengthy treatment on the pitch, the game carried on until the eighth minute.
New signing Fábio Carvalho scored with the last kick of the game, sending Anfield into wild celebrations. It is here that fans caught Joel Matip hitting the ground furiously with his fists.
Matip turned into prime Randy Orton
