Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson make Premier League history

"And if that's not enough then we've done everything that we can".

The Reds will look to avoid a Champions League hangover when Liverpool FC make the trip to Newcastle in pursuit of a ninth successive Premier League win.

While we won't be finishing in the top half again, there have certainly been things to be positive about, even if we have an nearly identical record to last season.

They know that two wins - at home to Leicester and away to Brighton - will see them retain the Premier League.

But Leicester are a risky opponent and any manager will tell you that, at this stage of a season, games in hand are only more valuable than points on the board if you actually win them. I love it. It was really a big moment.

It was 2-2 and the money was going on a third for the former manager of Liverpool, Rafa Benitez, and his Newcastle side.

The victory ensures the Premier League title race will go down to the final day of the season, though the Reds will no doubt face concern over the health of their star attacker.

It will be a crying shame for either Liverpool or Manchester City to miss out after such stellar seasons, but we will soon know the outcome.

Here we compare our player ratings from the game with those from the Liverpool Echo, the Mirror, the Independent, Sky Sports, Anfield Index, FotMob and the TIA readers.

It was all the more impressive given that on Wednesday Liverpool had expended so much energy against Barcelona only to end up with a bitter 3-0 defeat in the first leg of the Champions League semifinals.

"I was there six years, we won some trophies and we have good memories".

Walking onward there was much chanting and shouting, maybe a little bit of aggression from both sets of fans as they were in close proximity, my mistake was failing to take any notice of the group of 5 or 6 heading my way.

"I am really proud and pleased because we stayed up but I would like to do something more".

He said: "We are professional and we have to do our job".

When it was put to him that Newcastle had run the Champions League semi-finalists close, Ritchie told NUFC TV: "Yes, we're disappointed still".

A win would pile the pressure on the league leaders, who host Leicester on Monday.
