Newcastle United substitute Joe Willock equalised in the dying seconds of stoppage time to earn his side a precious point in a 1-1 draw away at Liverpool on Saturday that dented the home side’s Champions League qualification hopes.
Liverpool had opened the scoring at Anfield inside three minutes when Newcastle defender Ciaran Clark failed to clear a cross, allowing forward Mohamed Salah to control the ball and fire a left-footed half-volley into the roof of the net.
But despite dominating the ball possession and making 22 attempts on goal, Liverpool failed to extend its advantage. Newcastle forward Callum Wilson had a strike ruled out for offside in the 90th minute but Steve Bruce’s side continued to pile on the pressure.
It was rewarded in the 95th minute when Willock found the net for the third league match in a row with virtually the last kick of the match.
