Klopp confirms trio out of Newcastle clash, duo fit to play

Mohamed Salah scored his 24th Premier League goal of the season as Liverpool moved up to second place with a 2-0 home win against former manager Rafael Benitez's Newcastle United.

"I hope I can score many more goals for Tottenham".

Three thoughts on Liverpool's 2-0 win vs. Newcastle in the Premier League.

Manchester United are now third, a point behind Liverpool with a game to play.

Mahrez's goal was his first since he ended his January transfer deadline standoff on February 10 after being denied a move to Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp's side have also passed the 100-goal mark for the season, with fearsome attacking trio Salah, Firmino and Mane having contributed 66 efforts to that total.

But any frustration was eased five minutes before the break when Salah made the most of his first clear-cut chance.

"Mo Salah is a very offensive midfielder, more of a striker than a holding player".

What's next for Chidambaram and his son?
Both Chidambaram and Karti have denied the allegations, calling it a case of "political vendetta". Karti Chidambaram was arrested in the morning at Chennai airport after he landed from London.

The Egypt winger took Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's pass and shot low under Martin Dubravka for his 32nd goal of the season and his eighth in his last seven appearances.

The intensity dropped from Klopp's men thereafter, their energy levels protected ahead of Tuesday, but there was never any sign of a Magpies fightback and Lascelles somehow avoided punishment when he brought down Salah on the edge of the box with the last action of the game.

Substitute Chris Wood scored a header in the 80th minute to give Burnley their first Premier League victory in 12 games with a 2-1 win against 10-man Everton at Turf Moor.

Benitez is confident his side will soon start to amass points if they approach games with the intensity he felt was on show at Anfield.

Ki, who has now scored twice in his last three league games, struck from the edge of the box in the eighth minute and then later sent a corner to an unmarked Mike van der Hoorn in the centre of the box for the hosts' second.

The Liverpool boss will have to tackle Newcastle without midfielders Georginio Wijnaldum and Ben Woodburn, however, with both ruled out through illness.

The two sides played out a 1-1 draw at St James' Park back in October, with Joselu cancelling out an opener from Philippe Coutinho.
