Hi Steve

Watched Liverpool v Newcastle.
Not exactly a thriller.

Liverpool compared to their recent form were poor. They started very well but Newcastle created a grip on them that they found difficult to pierce, They did score two goals but there was an element of luck in both of them.

They were never in danger of losing but were pleased to win.

But as I have been saying three points is what you are playing for and sometimes you have the win by playing ugly.

I hope we do the same on Monday when we play Crystal Palace.

I like this time of the season when all games are important for teams at the top and teams at the bottom trying to avoid relegation.

Going to be a tough fight for the top four with with Man City having taken top place. On current performance Spurs and Liverpool will take two places, leaving Man United to compete with Chelsea for the fourth place.

I could'nt help but laugh at Clopp's reaction right at the end to the " penalty" that was turned down. I thought for a minute I was watching Swan Lake.
