Klopp: 'my new contract will hopefully influence Salah and Mané to stay'

Naby Keita ensured Liverpool’s quadruple hopes remain very much alive as he fired them to victory at in-form Newcastle to keep up the pressure on Premier League title rivals Manchester City.

Keita’s assured first-half finish was enough to claim a 1-0 win at St James’ Park on a day when Reds manager Jurgen Klopp was able to rest Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara and Mohamed Salah from his startling line-up ahead of Tuesday’s decisive Champions League semi-final trip to Villarreal.

Liverpool might - and probably should - have won more comfortably in front of a boisterous crowd of 52,281 as they held the upper hand for much of a contest which saw the Magpies’ hopes of a fifth successive league win and a seventh on the trot at home wilt in the face of almost constant pressure.

Eddie Howe’s men were never able to build up the kind of head of steam which has eased them clear of the relegation battle, perhaps a reminder of how far they have to go before they can once again compete with English football’s best on a sustained basis.

Follow all the reaction from a crucial Reds win at St James’ Park below:

Leeds 0-2 Man City

74 mins: Interesting moment, that. Raphinha goes across to take the corner and his own fans are chucking pieces of paper towards him. He turns to them and shrugs as if to say ‘why are you doing that?’

He has a point.

Leeds 0-2 Man City

72 mins: CHANCE! Oh what a block that is from Aymeric Laporte as Raphinha looks destined to score.

Leeds tear forward and Raphinha cuts in, beating Dias all ends up. He takes the shot on from inside the area but Laporte springs across to get a foot in the way and deflect the effort over the top.

Leeds 0-2 Man City

70 mins: Oh dear. Leeds break in numbers and look to be creating something dangerous until Raphinha’s inswinging cross from the far side is so overhit that it ends up in the crowd.

Leeds 0-2 Man City

68 mins: YELLOWS! Leeds manager Jesse Marsch has been booked by referee Paul Tierney. I think it was one of his coaching staff that was actually responsible for the poor behaviour on the touchline, but the rules dictate that the manager receives the caution.

Moments later Joao Cancelo gets a yellow of his own for a late tackle on Harrison.

Leeds 0-2 Man City

66 mins: Manchester City are moving back above Liverpool in the Premier League title race with four games remaining. They will regain their one-point lead over Jurgen Klopp’s men.

The fight has gone out of Leeds in the last 10 minutes. That Ake goal has killed them off.

Leeds 0-2 Man City

64 mins: Cancelo finds Sterling in space on the right. He sends an early cross into Foden but Koch just gets there ahead of him to head it behind for another Manchester City corner.

This one is dealt with by Dan James and as Leeds try to break the visitors’ sweeper Ederson is there to clear away the danger 40 yards from his own goal.

Leeds 0-2 Man City

63 mins: SUB! Joe Gelhardt is on for Junio Firpo as Leeds search for a way back into this game.

Leeds 0-2 Man City

62 mins: CHANCE! Nearly a third for Manchester City as they turn the screw.

Grealish cuts inside off the left touchline and lays it to Gundogan. The German opens his body up and curls one towards the top corner but it’s inches wide of the post.

Leeds 0-2 Man City

60 mins: SUB! One of Ake’s final contributions was that goal. He is replaced by Oleksandr Zinchenko.
