Liverpool used the one-man advantage to clinch the points and reignite their aspirations of a top-four place in the Premier League table.
Liverpool is now 6 points behind Newcastle, who are in fourth place, and they have one more game that needs to be played. This gives them a good chance of making a late move into fourth position, which seemed much less likely a couple of weeks ago.
The Magpies have to refocus quickly and regroup for their cup final encounter against Manchester United in the upcoming weekend – which Pope won’t be able to take part in due to the suspension.
Since August, it has been clear that Liverpool are unlikely to be able to maintain a solid grip on matches this season, because they have failed to add any fresh players to their midfield in back-to-back transfer windows.
Football focuses on hiding weaknesses, so as it appears from this event, the Reds ought to be able to do that in their upcoming contests.
Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, Darwin Nunez, and Cody Gakpo are now more apt to score more than opposition teams due to their respective returns, increasing steadiness, and increasing assurance.
They didn’t totally smother Newcastle in this match, but their relentless pressure and capitalizing on the opportunities they had gave a great indication of their prospects in the top four race.
Alisson Becker is the only Liverpool member who can declare with assurance that his excellent performance level was unwavering throughout this challenging season.
The Brazilian displayed unwavering commitment in this game and, even though the Reds took the victory, was definitely deserving of the man of the match honors.
He not only made some important defensive plays during the game, he also caused Pope’s ejection with his fast thinking and skillful passing.
Without Klopp, how much further back in the standings would his team be?
Not at all likely to be competing for a spot in the Champions League.
Liverpool’s win over Newcastle made them the third team in Premier League history to have earned their 1,500th two-nil victory, behind 1-0 wins (2136 times) and two-one wins (1779 times).
Pope’s red card would have been less damaging for Newcastle had their back-up goalkeeper Martin Dubravka not been ineligible for the upcoming League Cup final against Manchester United.
The Slovak had competed in the same tournament before he was brought to Old Trafford, but his loan time there finished unexpectedly early.
Ultimately, Eddie Howe is left to pick between Loris Karius, a former Liverpool player, and Mark Gillespie, a Newcastle United enthusiast, for the Wembley match.
Will Karius’ poor performance in the 2018 Champions League final for Liverpool stop him from being included in this year’s competition?
At St James’ Park, Liverpool came away with a victory that could potentially allow them to compete for a spot in the top four of the Premier League standings.
Newcastle is focusing on the League Cup final with Manchester United, which Nick Pope will unfortunately be unable to participate in due to receiving a red card during today’s game.
This instance, the Liverpool player encountered an Alexander-Arnold pass, which he arced back over the goal and narrowly missed hooking up with Firmino for a shot on goal.
Jota let a great opportunity pass him by to finalize the win for Liverpool.
Portuguese was attempting to meet a pass coming in from the right side, however he failed to get the ball onto target and missed the post. He should have done better.
Why is Newcastle not competing in this match?
They are now left with 10 players, yet they still manage to get the ball to Wilson, who has a great record of scoring goals, allowing him to take a shot.
Liverpool relieves the tension as Alexander-Arnold pushes his way through the middle of the field, yet Salah attempts a pass back to create the chance and Newcastle’s Ritchie clears it away quickly.
Newcastle has been on top in terms of ball control and examining offensive strategies, while Liverpool is having difficulty exiting their side of the field.
It is not easy to tell which team is playing with a one-man deficit, and this is praised highly by the home team.
Joelinton exited the field and Ritchie came on in his place, since Joelinton had to get medical attention for a minor injury.
The Brazilian was eager to continue playing, but his manager refused, as there was a League Cup final coming up.
Eddie Howe makes the decisive move here, introducing Wilson, Gordon, and Murphy to take over for Isak, Trippier, and Almiron.
It appears that the Uruguayan has been unable to fully recover from a shoulder injury he sustained earlier, as this appears to be his last move of the game.
Four new players, Jota, Elliott, Milner, and Firmino, will be substituted in the game in place of Nunez, Henderson, Bajcetic, and Gakpo.
Klopp obviously has his sights set on the Champions League encounter with Real Madrid on Tuesday.
Nunez bolted away on the left side during the press and executed a decoy maneuver by Robertson to move in and unleashed a powerful struck towards the corner which Dubravka skillfully forced the shot away from the post.
Newcastle have a great opportunity to score from a corner kick.
Schar jumps in an attempt to connect with the ball, but his shot doesn’t end up going in, allowing Liverpool to dodge danger once again.
They have not been very secure in defending set-pieces today.
Trippier makes a strong tackle on Nunez on the boundary line, resulting in both players needing medical care.
Nevertheless, neither of them will have to abandon the arena after being medically treated.
Isak gathers a Maximin cross and swiftly turns to aim a left-footed shot, however, the attempt goes astray as it goes over the goal.
A pause in the game while Longstaff receives medical care after getting hit in the face by Joelinton’s clearance.
He will be able to proceed, nonetheless.
Now, they get back underway.
Newcastle have performed well even without the presence of Nick Pope and could cause difficulties for the opposition in the remainder of the game by finding the back of the net soon.
Before that, Newcastle had taken advantage of their lack of personnel to keep Liverpool in check, leading to them winning multiple corner kicks.
If they are able to score the next point.
You’re out of the game!
Alisson grabs a subpar free-kick sent in his direction and attempts to swiftly send Mo Salah upfield on the counterattack with a pass from his hands.
That pass had Pope so alarmed he was unable to prevent it with a far flung diving header, and then foolishly handled it and got himself sent off on the spot.
A great opportunity for the home team has arisen.
The Dutchman subtly infiltrated the back line to obtain an excellent initial delivery from Salah, which his skillful touch and shot left Pope, who was running in, no opportunity.
Liverpool appears to be exhibiting a noteworthy level of assurance despite their irregular recent record.
Jordan Henderson initiates the match.
Jurgen Klopp has been talking to Sky Sports saying that they have not declared the battle for the Champions League locations yet. It is necessary to acquire points and keep up the consistency. He mentioned that it will be of assistance if they can shorten the gap to Newcastle, which is what they are aiming for today.
In an attempt to remain consistent, Liverpool have chosen the same eleven that won against Everton on Monday, with the exception of Virgil van Dijk who is making a welcome return to the squad.
The Reds remain the same squad that achieved a victory in the Merseyside derby.
The other games may be watched on the NBC Peacock service for those who are signed up.
But in an about-face on Feb. 15, the Austin City Council voted to pursue a shorter one-year contract, angering the police union and throwing a wrench in negotiations. The 77 officers who could retire by the end of March eclipse first quarter numbers for prior years. Justin Berry, a current Austin Police Department officer, said that many officers ineligible for retirement may depart the force for other cities. "The City Council fails to understand the gravity of what this means for the general safety of the very community they are responsible for." After throwing out that contract, city council instructed the interim city manager to implement a base pay increase for officers and a signing bonus for new cadets.25 days ago Fox News

Murdoch acknowledged in testimony that some of those hosts, including Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs and Maria Bartiromo, had done more than just give a platform to baseless claims of voter fraud. Murdoch, when asked why he continued to allow MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell to make election fraud claims on Fox News, said it was a business decision. A search of the Fox News website shows Steel did appear on at least one Fox News program: "America's News Headquarters." The documents also show other executives at Fox News growing increasingly concerned about the channel’s handling of election fraud claims in the days after the election. The filing shows that as various Fox News shows, hosts and guests continued to push voter fraud claims, Murdoch fielded messages from other media executives, including some from within Fox Corp., who tried to persuade him to change course.25 days ago Yahoo News

Zero-calorie sweetener erythritol, widely used in sugar replacement or reduced-sugar products, has been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular events including heart attacks and strokes for older adults consuming high amounts and already at risk of heart disease, according to a new study published Monday. Taylor also suggests looking for other sugar substitutes like Stevia-based sweeteners that are herbal as opposed to artificial. However, the study warns that erythritol is often combined with other sugar substitutes to help add bulk to the sweeteners. Taylor suggests breaking the sugar habit by weaning off sweeteners in everyday snacks and foods or substituting sweetened foods for other options. At the very least, drink unflavored tea, coffee, bubbly water or water with fruit infused in it.”25 days ago ABC News
