Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo were decisive as Liverpool picked up a 2-0 win against Newcastle on Saturday.

The Reds found themselves with a comfortable lead just 17 minutes into the clash and the job of holding onto it was made easier when Newcastle goalkeeper Nick Pope was sent off for a bizarre handball.

It was certainly not a stroll for Jurgen Klopp's team, however, as Allan Saint-Maximin led the charge for the hosts. Indeed, Alisson had to be at his best to keep the Magpies out with a string of saves, while he also had a hand in Pope's red card with his quick-thinking setting Mohamed Salah away on the counter.
