Newcastle vs Liverpool: Premier League preview

Mohamed Salah was carried from the pitch on a stretcher as substitute Divock Origi kept Liverpool‘s Premier League title hopes alive with a last-gasp winner at Newcastle.

The Egypt international was hurt in a collision with Magpies keeper Martin Dubravka after 68 minutes in a pulsating encounter at St James’ Park to leave his participation in Tuesday night’s Champions League semi-final second-leg clash with Barcelona in doubt.

His misfortune came during a breathless 3-2 victory at St James’ Park which leaves the Reds two points clear of Manchester City, who play Leicester on Monday evening, and ensured that the race for the title will go to the final day of the season.

The Magpies levelled twice as Christian Atsu and Salomon Rondon cancelled out goals from Virgil Van Dijk and Salah.

But it was Origi, whose late intervention clinched the derby victory over Everton earlier this season, who came to the rescue with just four minutes remaining.
