Trent Alexander-Arnold all but confirmed Liverpool’s victory over Newcastle United with a super long-range drive to widen the deficit.
The fullback made it 3-1 to the Reds after Mo Salah and Diogo Jota’s first-half retaliatory goals put Jurgen Klopp’s men back on top in the clash with Eddie Howe’s relegation-battling Magpies.
With Chelsea dropping points against ex-Reds boss Rafa Benitez’s inconsistent Everton outfit, it means the Merseysiders could establish a three-point gap on their title rivals before the halfway mark.
