Despite the hosts desperately searching for a late winner, Newcastle fans gave a rousing standing ovation for Salah, who was replaced by Divock Origi in the 73rd minute.

Salah added to his goal haul Saturday, scoring the his side’s second goal of the match. With 22 for the season, Salah is well on his way to earning the Premier League’s coveted Golden Boot award.

Origi made good use of his short time on the pitch. An impressive header from the Belgian in the 86th minute solidified a 3-2 victory, putting Jürgen Klopp’s men two points ahead of Man City in a tight Premier League title race. Liverpool play their final match of the domestic year on May 12 against Wolverhampton.
