Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool need trophies to be remembered - Rafa Benitez

Mane doubled the lead in the second half, scoring Liverpool's 200th Premier League goal under Klopp, in just 97 games. Jurgen Klopp expands on how Liverpool players have stepped up and responsibility has been spread out more equally since Philippe Coutinho's move to Barcelona.

Indeed, they had not won at Anfield since 1994 and never looked likely to stop Liverpool from making it 22 league games unbeaten against the Geordies.

"I think so, but, at the same time, I don't want to talk too much about Liverpool", said Benitez. "We all know how he works, how he can organise a team, how he can make your life really hard".

Klopp also talked up Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez, who of course guided Liverpool to a famous Champions League victory over AC Milan in 2005.

"The relationship, the connection is so obvious, for us we just have to make sure we do our best in this game and then afterwards, wish them all the best".

"We have tried to keep the team together and strengthen it", Klopp told reporters.

Midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum remains a doubt due to illness while Nathaniel Clyne is set to build on his fitness with another run out for the under-23's.

Liverpool haven't lost a league game since October.

Newcastle's top scorer is Dwight Gayle with five goals.

No player within the big five European leagues has scored in more competitive club games than Mo Salah (26 games) this season.

Newcastle have been shown four red cards across their last four Premier League visits to Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp's men continued their resurgence in the second half, as Sadio Mane made it 2-0 in the 55th minute after a handful of ideal passes earlier on. Newcastle get away with one, but it won't affect the result.

The rotation of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane in December and January has allowed those three to be healthy and niggle free as we enter the last dozen or so games of the season. The way you do things is important, yes, but after, you have to win. Liverpool's second arrived ten minutes in when the visiting system was carved open by some lovely short passing exchanges.
