There's no doubt Liverpool have been a shadow of the side that looked set to pull well clear in that first half. Newcastle have real hope of snatching something as we head into the final 20 minutes.
67'
Salah and Oxlade-Chamberlain combine down the right but the latter sees a cross-shot float harmlessly over the bar.
65'
NEWCASTLE PENALTY APPEAL! Alexander Arnold slides in to try and stop Fraser as he looks to get on the end of a ball from the right. The referee says no, but VAR is more interested...
But eventually the decision is no spot kick.
