The opinion of most Liverpool fans inside the Football Transfer Tavern is that Saturday saw two points dropped rather than one point gained in the 2-2 draw with Newcastle United at St. James’ Park.
In an entertaining game, the Reds twice came from a goal down to draw level, but missed several opportunities when pushing for a second half goal against the Magpies’ 10 men.
The red card given to Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa for pulling down Luis Suarez in the penalty box was supposed to signal a Liverpool onslaught, and another three Premier League points, but a combination of slack defending and poor finishing meant the Reds had to settle for a Premier League point.
After the game, Brendan Rodgers remained positive, insisting it could well prove a crucial point at the end of the season, considering his players had endured a tough week with the majority having been away on international duty.
And the Reds boss has earned the right to be positive, after an impressive start to the season which has seen them pick up 17 points out of a possible 24, winning five out of eight.
And during that time, the Reds have looked a real attacking threat (in the first half of matches at least) hitting 17 goals in 10 games in all competitions this season.
Here, we have compiled a list of the five best goals struck so far.
