Liverpool Football Club suffered a major setback in the battle for the Champions League spots. The English football champion came on Saturday against Newcastle United after a late goal of 1-1 (1-0). Liverpool, sixth in the Premier League, missed the jump to fourth place with 54 points at the moment, which still qualifies them to participate in the first division next season.
Club-Elf, long in control, took the lead after just three minutes. Striker Mohamed Salah made the Newcastle defense look bad and fired after a lap to make it 1-0. Al-Masry missed the second goal before the end of the first half, when he failed in front of Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka (37). Liverpool were punished for it in stoppage time when Joe Willock scored the equalizer (90 + 5).
The protest continues
In front of the stadium, some Liverpool fans called for main owner John Henry and Fenway Sports Group to be sacked with posters after the Premier League failed before kick-off. After massive mass protests, all of the six English founding members, including Liverpool FC, recently distanced themselves from the Premier League.
