Newcastle are left FURIOUS as Liverpool net a 98th-minute winner despite only FIVE minutes of added time being added at Anfield, with Magpies co-owner Mehrdad Ghodussi taking to Twitter to brand their last-gasp defeat a ‘joke’
- Newcastle were left fuming at officials at the end of the 2-1 defeat to Liverpool
- Reds scored winner in 98th minute - three minutes after game was meant to end
- The two benches has to be separated on the touchline after objects were thrown
- Magpies owner takes to social media to label the ending to the game a joke
Newcastle were left furious after they were denied a point at Anfield in the most dramatic fashion with co-owner Mehrdad Ghodussi branding the finale “a joke”.
Fabio Carvalho’s winning goal for Liverpool came in the 98th minute – three minutes after the game should have concluded – and it led to a furious scene on the touchline with coaches from both benches needing to be separated.
Television footage on BT Sport showed an object being thrown from the direction of the Newcastle bench towards Liverpool’s staff but neither Eddie Howe nor Jurgen Klopp saw anything that they could comment on.
Emotions spilled over at the end of the game following Liverpool's late win over Newcastle
Howe insisted Newcastle had not deliberately turned to gamesmanship to break the flow of the contest and said all stoppages were legitimate as his players were running on empty and he diplomatically tried to tread a careful line.
But Ghodussi took to Twitter and said: ‘So proud of that team, they left everything on the pitch and deserved a point. Absolute joke to end that way.’
Howe added: ‘I would need someone else to guide me (why there was so much added time). As I am sat here I had no idea. It seemed the final whistle would never come but we needed to defend the final situation better than we did. It is a cruel game.
‘Compared to the game at Anfield last year, we were in it more. We didn’t intend to drop deep, we didn’t until the latter minutes. We defended well. You have to take into account that we had a day’s less preparation. Our players emptied their tank.’

Klopp, on the other hand, was exultant and he gave six fist pumps to The Kop amid the hullabaloo, recognising that the manner this victory was achieved was more important than the nine goals they rattled past Bournemouth last Saturday.
‘The game was just interrupted constantly for some reason and there was no chance to gain any momentum,’ said Klopp. ‘In the end I was very happy when we got that last corner and what Mo and Fabio made of it was absolutely outstanding. A Perfect moment.’
It was not all positive, however, for Klopp. Captain Jordan Henderson was substituted with a hamstring injury that could mean a lengthy lay-off. He will undergo a scan today and Klopp said he will remain on the lookout to sign a midfielder up until the deadline.
