Sharethematch.com looks at five classic games between Newcastle United and Liverpool in the Premier League

Newcastle were 12 points clear at the top of the league in January but March and April were unkind to them and two goals each from Robbie Fowler and Stan Collymore – his second coming in extra time – saw them lose more ground on Manchester United in the title race.

Less than a year later the two sides did it again. Liverpool raced to a 3-0 lead through Steve McManaman, Fowler and Patrik Berger.

But with three goals in 17 minutes Newcastle were back on level terms before Liverpool clinched the win in injury time again through Fowler.

The two sides continued their entertaining rivalry as new Newcastle boss Ruud Gullit saw his side ripped apart by Michael Owen’s first-half hat-trick.

Rafael Benítez’s men cruised to another victory on Tyneside with Steven Gerrard and Sami Hyypia giving them a 2-0 lead before David Edgar headed in to hand the Magpies hope.

But Ryan Babel, Gerrard and Xabi Alonso added to Newcastle’s woes with a victory that seemed to sound the death-knell for Joe Kinnear’s side who would go on to slide into the Championship.
