Fans can watch the Liverpool vs. Newcastle United match live online and see if Liverpool can take its last opportunity to regain the top spot in the Premier League.
For much of the season, the Merseyside squad held onto the top spot in the league, but stumbled in the last few weeks including blowing a 3-0 lead with 10 minutes remaining against Crystal Palace last week.
They are now playing from behind, looking up the rankings to Manchester City at No. 1. Manager Brendan Rodgers said his Liverpool squad has remained upbeat despite the collapse against Crystal Palace.
“You could see the emotion after the game and that was pretty much the same in the dressing room afterwards,” he said. “But we know the areas we need to improve. We won’t dwell on it. You can’t think about what might or could have happened, you can only really focus on what has happened and look forward to getting better and improving.”
Fans who watch the Liverpool vs. Newcastle United match live online will see a team that has its fate taken out of its hands. Manchester City is ahead 83 points to 81 against Liverpool, and needs just a draw against visiting West Ham to win the Premier League even if Liverpool were to win.
Manchester City holds a 13-goal differential in the tiebreaker, meaning it only needs to avoid the upset by West Ham, which narrowly avoided relegation.
Alan Pardew of Newcastle is giving Liverpool plenty of respect, saying they’ve played like the top team in the Premier League regardless of what the standings say.
“They have been brilliant. They have been the team of the season, probably, regardless of whether they win it or not,” he said “It’s a tough game for us because at home, they have been awesome.”
