    Time:90'
    • Newcastle United
    • Liverpool
    • 90+4' The final whistle goes, and Alan Pardew's newcastle career could harldy have got off to a better start.
    • 90+3' Newcastle substitution: Danny Guthrie repalces Barton.
    • 90+2' That's Carroll's 10th league strike of the season, and has given Roy Hodgson a face like thunder on the Liverpool bench!
    • 90+1' GOAL!! Carroll makes it three!! The striker has all the time in the world to turn and fire a rasping 25-ard strike that flies into the bottom corner! Reina had no chance!
    • 90+1' Four minutes of added time will be played.
    • 90' Krul comes off his line to claim the corner. Johnson beats him to it but heads over the bar.
    • 89' Babel floats a ball across the box to Torres, who has his volley blocked. Babel's persistence earns Liverpool a corner.
    • 87' My word, the grin on Mike Ashley's face is unbelievable. If he thinks this win will get the fans off his back, then he can think again.
    • 86' Newcastle substitution: Alan Smith replaces Nolan.
    • 85' Liverpool substitution: Milan Jovanovic replaces Maxi.
    • 84' The corner is headed clear. Konchesky sends in another cross from deep, but torres is penalised for a foul on a defender.
    • 83' Tiote is booked for a foul on Torres, but he won't mind, as it killed off a promising Liverpool attack. Fromt he free-kick Jose Enrique concedes a corner.
    • 82' Joey Barton's second goal of the season could be the one to seal Alan Pardew's first win as Newcastle manager.
    • 80' GOAL!! Carroll flicks on another header and Skrtel makes another error, and this time it's costly. Barton pounces after the centre-back misses the ball to prod the ball past Reina!
    • 79' Meireles's delivery is headed back but only as far as Lucas... the Brazilian swipes his strike well wide of the target. Cue ironic cheers from the Gallowgate End.
    • 78' Johnson slips skilfully between two players and heads for the box, but he's held by Gutierrez. The winger gets a booking, and Liverpool have a free-kick.
    • 77' This time Kyrgiakos gets above Carroll and heads the ball clear.
    • 76' Kuyt follows Gutirrez's run down the wing before bringing the Argentine down. Baarton will send this in...
    • 75' More good build-up by Newcastle before Tiote fires over the bar from range.
    • 74' Barton whips in a nother good cross for Carroll, who is penalised for pushing his marker as he stooped for the header.
    • 73' Liverpool substitution: Ryan Babel replaces N'Gog.
    • 72' Barton stops Konchesky in his tracks with a well-timed tackle on the wing. Liverpool still down to 10 men for the time being.
    • 71' N'Gog is down on all fours with blood on his face after Kyrgiakos caught him with an elbow. Lucas and Barton are at the centre of a melee as N'Gog goes off to receive treatment.
    • 70' Barton floats in the free-kick. Carroll wins his header as Reina came off his line to punch clear, but Meireles hacks the ball clear.
    • 69' Lucas fouls Tiote. Newcastle on top at the moment.
    • 68' Newcastle have plenty forward, but Gutierrez overhits his cross.
    • 66' Jose Enrique gets the better of compatriot Torres, who fouls the defender as he tries to win the ball back.
    • 65' Skrtel left for dead again, this time down the right wing. Reina gathers the cross.
    • 64' Carroll flicks a long ball into Ranger's path. The teenager leaves Skrtel on his backside and flashes his shot wide of the far post! So nearly the perfect introduction for Ranger.
    • 64' Newcastle substitution: Nile Ranger replaces Ameobi.
    • 63' Ameobi is sat down on the turf. It looks as though e's picked up a knock and will play no further part.
    • 62' Liverpool's forwards are really pressing on Newcastle now, not letting out of their half easily.
    • 61' Carroll manages to dig out a decent ball for Ameobi but Skrtel tracks his man and calmly heads back to Reina.
    • 60' Gutierrez is beaten by the bounce as he tries to beat Kyrgiakos. Torres is released to chase the long ball but he is offside.
    • 59' There are over 50,000 fans in St James' Park this evening, but the ground is pretty quiet at the moment.
    • 58' Torres picks the ball and strides forward to the edge of the box. He drills a low strike that flashes just wide of the post! This game has really opened up now.
    • 56' Barton digs out a fantastic cross and Andy Carroll has a free header... sent over the bar! The striker is furious with himself for not even testing Reina. A great chance to put Newcastle back in front goes begging.
    • 55' Liveprool are finding their way through Liverpool a lot easier since the break. Ameobi handballs as he controls a longball.
    • 54' Kuyt surges down the right wing and sends in a decent cross that N'Gog gets his head to, but the ball is glanced wide.
    • 53' Liverpool catch Newcastle unawares with a quick free-kick that is floated over the top to the feet of Torres. He's one-on-one with the keeper, but Krul spreads himself well to block the effort!
    • 52' Torres rises above Simpson to meet a high ball and nods his header into the arms of Krul.
    • 51' Joey Barton is off the field for about a minute as he changes his boots. Liverpool play on.
    • 50' GOAL!! A defensive mix-up leads to a Liverpool equaliser! Campbell heads a cross to the feet of Kuyt, who jinks into the box and fires a shot that clips off the shin of Taylor and sneaks past Krul into the net!
    • 47' Liverpool have lost their last eight Premier League away matches when they were behind at half time, since 3-2 win at Manchester City in October 2008.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • 45+3' That's the final act of the half, and Alan Pardew will be delighted his first match in charge is (so far) going to plan.
    • 45+2' A Liverpool corner has to be retaken. Meireles's delivery is a good one and Kyrgiakos gets in front of his marker to head wide of the far post! So close for the visitors!
    • 45+1' Two minutes to be added on at the end of the half.
    • 45' The Argentine is still haranguing the referee, claiming he should have had a penalty, but in truth he should be getting a booking.
    • 44' Maxi tries a turn just inside the box and goes to ground dramatically after minimal contact from a Newcastle player! The crowd enjoyed that!
    • 42' Barton floats the ball to Ameobi this time. Liverpool clear the ball at the second attempt.
    • 41' Another Kyrgiakos foul on Carroll, in a similar area to the free-kick that led to the goal. The Greek defender is nearly booked for his angry reaction, but the referee just has a word with him.
    • 40' Tiote and Kuyt collide in the air, with the Dutchman coming off worse. Free-kick to Liverpool by the halfway line, played backwards.
    • 39' Kuyt helps the ball along to Torres, but Krul is quick off his line to colelct it.
    • 38' Kuyt roams forward after some patient build-up from Liverpool. The ball goes out wide for Konchesky, who has his cross blocked.
    • 37' Barton's corner is a dangerous one, but the whistle goes for a foul in the box by a Newcastle player.
    • 36' Meireles misplaces a pass and gives the ball right to Ameobi. The strike hits a low shot from range that deflects off Kyrgiakos and rolls just past the post with Reina diving the other way!
    • 34' It is 16 months since Liverpool came back to win after conceding the opening goal of a league match – a 3-2 victory at Bolton Wanderers in August 2009.
    • 33' The ball is pinged around the area and it comes back for Meireles to strike... the ball deflects off a shin in the melee and Jose Enrique blocks it on the line! The Spaniard did well to stick to his post.
    • 32' Liverpool have a corner after Taylor and Krul again fail to communicate properly.
    • 31' Joe Cole (remember him?) is going for a jog along the touchline. Liverpool are lacking exactly what a fit and in-form Cole would provide. It's been a long time since we've seen that, mind.
    • 30' Newcastle come at Liverpool again and the ball is laid off to Carroll... the drilled effort from 20 yards is right at Reina, who holds on to the strike.
    • 29' Liverpool endure a little spell of pressure down this left-hand side, but they escape for the time being after being being given a fortunate throw.
    • 28' Great play again by Jose Enrique and Gutierrez down the left.
    • 27' Torres fires his free-kick into the wall, and Newcastle end up with a goal kick. A wasted opportunity.
    • 26' Torres falls over as he tries to volley on the turn, and somehow wins a free-kick off Campbell! The veteran defneder looks suitably perplexed, but Liverpool have a free-kick in a great position for a strike...
    • 25' Taylor is penalised for a foul on N'Gog in the centre circle. Liverpool still playing without any creative spark.
    • 23' Taylor and Krul fail to communicate as Meireles sends a ball into the box. Torres is lurking as Taylor lets it bounce, but Krul is off his line to collect before Torres can pounce.
    • 22' Cheick Tiote is down receiving treatment after falling awkwardly. The Ivorian limps off, but will be OK to continue.
    • 21' Nolan is now one short of equalling his best ever scoring season in the top flight – he scored nine league goals for Bolton Wanderers in both 2003-04 and 2005-06.
    • 20' Johnson picks out Maxi's run and floats a good ball in for the Argentine, who sends his header in the run over the bar.
    • 19' Johnson picks up a silly booking for a late foul on Gutierriez. Barton's delivery is almost flicked past Reina by Campbell, but it goes through to the Spanish keeper.
    • 18' Liverpool have resumed their slight dominance of the possession. They are struggling to find ways in for Torres behind the defence.
    • 17' Meireles tries the little dinked pass over the defence, but Steven Taylor blocks it.
    • 16' Kevin Nolan's eighth league goal of the season has got Alan Pardew's reign off to a flyer!
    • 15' GOAL!! Joey Barton floats the free-kick to Carroll, who nods it down for Nolan to turn past Pepe Reina from close range! The Newcastle captain scores against the club he supported as a boy!
    • 15' Kyrgiakos climbs on the back of Carroll as he jumps for a header, and Newcastle have a free-kick in a good position.
    • 14' Martin Skrtel gets his head to the corner but it's blocked. Meireles's second ball goes right to Krul.
    • 13' torres turns inside the area. Despite having three defenders around him, he still manages to win a corner.
    • 12' Krul hacks the ball clear as Torres chases it into the box.
    • 11' Torres is caught in possession and Newcastle play a through ball into the path of Andy Carroll... the big striker just can't get a touch on the pass as it runs past him.
    • 10' Simpson heads away but Liverpool keep the ball. The ball comes back in for Kyrgiakos to strike... Tim Krul palms the shot away!
    • 9' Glen Johnson is fortunate to win a free-kick off Jose Enrique on the right wing. Meireles will send this into the box...
    • 8' Ruud Gullit also previously began his career as Newcastle manager with a home match against Liverpool – his team losing 4-1 in August 1998.
    • 7' Sol Campbell is caught high up the pitch and misplaces a pass. raul Meirelees plays the ball right into the gap left by Campbell for Fernando Torres, who is offside.
    • 6' Liverpool doing a good job is keeping possession in the early stages. usually that tactic is designed to quieten the crowd, but on this unique occasion it's encouraging them to sing.
    • 5' Sotirios Kyrgiakos does well to concede a throw rather than a corner under pressure from Shola Ameobi. The Newcastle striker is then caught offside as the home side build another attack.
    • 4' "Get out of our club" is the chant from a section of the Newcastle fans.
    • 3' Maxi Rodriguez scampers forward through the middle and fires a shot from long distance into the crowd. An early sighter for the Argentine, who has two goals in his last three games.
    • 2' Jose Enrique and Jonas Gutierrez make good progress down the left-hand side before Liverpool win the ball back.
    • 1' Liverpool kick off and we're underway!
    • 17:28 The players are walking out on to the pitch now. What's so intriguing about this match is that anything could happen. Such is the inconsistent nature of this Newcastle team, if they were to win, would you be that surprised? We'll be underway shortly.
    • 17:25 Pardew pre-match interview on potential hostile reception: "I know I can do my job, and I'm good at it. I want to give this city a football team it can be proud of."
    • 17:20 The last four Newcastle managers – Kevin Keegan, Joe Kinnear, Alan Shearer and Chris Hughton - all failed to win their first match in charge of the club. The last manager to win his opening match in charge was Sam Allardyce in August 2008.
    • 17:15 There have been plenty of Newcastle fans protesting against the appointment of Pardew - and owner Mike Ashley - outside the ground in the run-up to this match. The new boss could well face a few boos as he enters his new dugout for the first time.
    • 17:10 Both teams have fallen in the table following the 3pm games - here's how the Premier League stands at the moment. Premier League table
    • 17:10 Roy Hodgson, meanwhile, has demanded no resting on laurels after three decent performances from his Liverpool side. Hodgson: 22 more of the same, please.
    • 17:05 Pardew has already been linked with a move for coach Wally Downes, who has won plaudits for helping to turn West Ham's form around - and Hammers boss Avram Grant says he won't stop Downes if he wants to go. Grant won't stand in Wally's way
    • 17:05 It's been a quiet old week for Newcastle, hasn't it? They absurdly ditched Chris Hughton, then made the not-universally-popular appointment of Alan Pardew. The new man was impressive in his introductory press conference on Thursday, and fancies a piece of Liverpool. Pardew wants Reds payback
    • 17:05 NEWCASTLE: Krul, Simpson, Steven Taylor, Campbell, Jose Enrique, Barton, Nolan, Tiote, Gutierrez, Carroll, Ameobi... Subs: Harper, Guthrie, Routledge, Lovenkrands, Perch, Smith, Ranger... LIVERPOOL: Reina, Johnson, Kyrgiakos, Skrtel, Konchesky, Kuyt, Meireles, Lucas, Maxi, Torres, Ngog... Subs: Jones, Aurelio, Cole, Jovanovic, Babel, Poulsen, Kelly... Referee: Lee Mason (Lancashire)
    • 17:00 Liverpool have no win in their last three Premier League away matches, losing the last two. If they lose today it will be the first time in 14 months they have lost three in a row away from home. Three of their last four Premier League victories have included a goal by Maxi Rodriguez. Either Maxi or Fernando Torres have scored in their six league wins this season. They last won without either of them scoring with a 3-0 home victory against West Ham on April 19.
    • 16:55 Pardew's last Premier League match was against Liverpool - Charlton drawing 2-2 at Anfield in May 2007. He was West Ham manager when they lost on penalties to them in the 2006 FA Cup Final.
    • 16:50 Alan Pardew has won 25, drawn 16 and lost 33 of his previous 74 Premier League matches as a manager. Pardew won only five of his 19 Premier League matches in charge of Charlton Athletic during his last spell in the division from December 2006 to May 2007 - a 26% win percentage. Former Newcastle manager Chris Hughton won five of his 16 PL matches in charge of the club this season - a 31% win percentage.
    • 16:45 Newcastle United and Liverpool have met 148 times in the league. Newcastle United have won 40, Liverpool 71 and there have been 37 draws. They have met 32 times in the Premier League. Newcastle United have won seven, Liverpool 19 and there have been six draws.
