Liverpool have extended their lead at the top of the table thanks to 3-1 win over Newcastle United on Saturday, maintaining their record of winning every league match this season.
Confidence was high during the pre-match build-up and Newcastle United weren't being given too much of a chance, even after their win on the road to Tottenham Hotspur just a few weeks ago.
But Steve Bruce's side capitalised on Liverpool's slow start to the game by tacking a shock lead through loanee full-back Jetro Willems.

Who had Jetro Willems down as the game’s first scorer? — FourFourTwo ⚽️ (@FourFourTwo) September 14, 2019
Trent Alexander-Arnold has had his pants pulled down and his lunch money stolen there by Willems. Insane skill! #LIVNEW— Sean Nevin gbwls (@SNevin72) September 14, 2019
The goal came after just six minutes so it was hardly time for Liverpool to go into their panic stations, but a handful of chances that the hosts created didn't test
Sadio Mane says 'f**k you' to the idiots in the VAR booth....#LFC— David Maddock (@MaddockMirror) September 14, 2019
Sadio Mane now with 31 goals in all competitions since the start of last season. One ahead of Mohamed Salah.— DaveOCKOP (@DaveOCKOP) September 14, 2019
50 - Sadio Mané has played 50 Premier League matches at Anfield without losing – 49 with Liverpool, one with Southampton (W40 D10 L0) - more than any other player has played on a ground without ending on the losing side in Premier League history.

It's actually funny how ruthless Sadio Mané now is. It's all psychological. He's always had the talent but now he has the belief.— Sam McGuire (@SamMcGuire90) September 14, 2019
Sadio Mané has had an incredible start to the season. Another brilliant finish which puts him on 5 goals in all competitions already.— Leanne Prescott (@_lfcleanne) September 14, 2019
Sadio Mane is Liverpool’s main man. I said it at the start of the season. Such a class player. World class in fact. Thrown around willy nilly these days but fully granted in Mane’s case! Phenomenal player!— George Benson (@MrGeorgeBenson) September 14, 2019
I bet Dubravka captained Mane in his fantasy team. — RJ #24 略 (@ReeceJamesSZN) September 14, 2019
What's Dubravka doing there?— Mark Douglas (@MsiDouglas) September 14, 2019
Roberto Firmino, no surprise, just on and in the thick of things: he thieves possession and plays in Sadio Mane. Martin Dubravka comes to claim it and fails with the ball bouncing to the Senegal speedster, who gets his second of the afternoon and puts #LFC in front— Melissa Reddy (@MelissaReddy_) September 14, 2019
Sadio Mane will be a lot happier today. So too will be people with acca’s.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) September 14, 2019
A goal to marvel at. Wizardry from Roberto Firmino, wonderfully finished off by Mohamed Salah.— Melissa Reddy (@MelissaReddy_) September 14, 2019
Now THAT is how you cut through a low block. Sublime play by Firmino and Salah. What a goal.— Joel Rabinowitz (@joel_archie) September 14, 2019
Salah just unbelievable — Matt Craig (@MattHDGamer) September 14, 2019
