How Liverpool Maintained Perfect Start

Premier League leaders Liverpool maintained their perfect start to the new league season in the English top-flight after their comeback win over Newcastle United at home earlier on Saturday.

Liverpool came from a goal down to beat the Magpies in the Premier League week five clash.

Newcastle United went into the game on the back of a winless away run at Liverpool in the Premier League dating back to 1994 when Kevin Keegan was the manager at the Northeast club.

The Newcastle United faithful would have thought that it was the right time to end that poor run after summer signing Jetro Williams fired them into a shock lead in the first quarter of the first half.

It took a while before Liverpool recovered from that early setback through in-form Senegalese international Sadio Mane who hit a brace before the halftime interval to give his team the lead for the first time in the game.

Mohamed Salah then went on to wrap up the victory for Liverpool in the second half to ensure that the table toppers continue their unblemished start to the new Premier League season.

Liverpool have won their five league games this season at the expense of teams like Norwich City, Southampton, Arsenal, Burnley and Newcastle United.
