Despite dominating much of the game, Jurgen Klopp’s side failed to make the most of several chances, while Newcastle’s Bruno Guimaraes came dangerously close to equalising with five minutes left on the clock.

The result sees Liverpool top the Premier League table, moving above Manchester City, who visit Leeds United later on Saturday.
