The European champions have been in sparkling form but made a slow start at Anfield. And they were stunned when Newcastle full-back Jetro Willems opened the scoring with a thumping finish.
But it didn’t take long for Liverpool to level the score. Sadio Mane fired low into the corner of the goal, before doubling his tally just before half-time.
The win means Liverpool will top the Premier League table for another week at least.
