Following Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat at St James’ Park, the Reds are now just three points behind Newcastle United
Liverpool’s path to potential UEFA Champions League qualification has become clearer following Newcastle United’s Premier League defeat to Arsenal.
Mikel Arteta’s side defeated the Magpies 2-0 at St James’ Park, thanks to goals from Martin Odegaard and a Fabian Schar own goal.
Newcastle’s lead over Liverpool has shrunk even further, with only four and three games remaining, respectively, with Jurgen Klopp’s side set to face strugglers Leicester City at the King Power Stadium next Monday.
Manchester United are currently in fifth place and can now leapfrog Newcastle into third place if they defeat West Ham at the London Stadium later this evening.
The Reds’ impressive form continues in their pursuit of Champions League qualification, and they have now not lost in their last eight Premier League games, both at home and away (W6 & D2).
Newcastle United’s remaining home games are against Leeds (A), Brighton (H), Leicester (H), and Chelsea (A).
Liverpool’s remaining matches are against Leicester (A), Aston Villa (H), and Southampton (A).
