Newcastle deny Liverpool with dramatic stoppage-time equaliser

Joe Willock of Newcastle United scores their side's first goal during the Premier League match between Liverpool and Newcastle United at Anfield on April 24, 2021 in Liverpool, England.

Newcastle substitute Joe Willock scored a dramatic but deserved 95th-minute equaliser to deny Liverpool a much-needed win in their pursuit of Champions League football.

Mohamed Salah's early goal appeared to have put the champions on track for a vital win as they chase a top-four finish at the end of a disappointing season.

But despite dominating early on, Jurgen Klopp's side were unable to finish the game off and were given a lifeline they failed to take when Callum Wilson's last-minute equaliser was ruled out for handball.

Steve Bruce's much-improved visitors kept up the late pressure and were rewarded when Willock fired in for the third match in a row with the last kick of the game.

Reds fans must now look on as West Ham and Chelsea - both a point ahead of their sixth-placed side - meet later on Saturday.
