Newcastle have come a long way fast under Saudi ownership but cannot escape the feeling of last-minute despair at Anfield. To Stan Collymore in 1996 and Robbie Fowler in 1997, they can add Fábio Carvalho 2022 to the list of Liverpool tormentors. Eddie Howe will find solace in the performance once the pain eventually subsides.
Five minutes of stoppage time were signalled at the end of an engrossing, fractious affair at Anfield. Liverpool’s young substitute Carvalho, who turned 20 on Tuesday, extended his birthday celebrations with the winner in the 98th minute. Additional time was added to the additional time due to treatment to Newcastle goalkeeper Nick Pope and time-wasting from his teammates.
