LIV
90+5'
The full-time whistle goes at St James' Park and Newcastle have held on to draw 2-2 against Liverpool despite having had 10 men for much of a dramatic Premier League clash. Gerrard joins the 100 club but Liverpool will be frustrated not to have grabbed a win with the numerical advantage. Thanks for joining us.
90+4'
Liverpool have a last-gasp free kick now as Suarez and Gerrard stand over the ball. Can they grab all three points at the death?
90+3'
Williamson does superbly to shepherd the ball out of play up against Suarez, and that could well be it.
90+2'
It's all Liverpool in the dying minutes as the home fans whistle and pray for full-time now.
90+1'
Sterling concedes a corner as Newcastle have a bit of respite at last with Anita winning it.
90'
There will be four added minutes as Liverpool pile on the pressure against the 10-man hosts.
89'
Sturridge races down the right and dinks the ball over the onrushing Krul, but Suarez cannot quite get on the end of it as Newcastle frantically clear!
88'
Gerrard launches a long ball towards Sturridge, but this time it's slightly overhit. He's had a superb game for Liverpool today though.
87'
Cissokho makes a crucial challenge for Liverpool as Remy races through on goal on the counter-attack! It's a vital interception with the striker about to let fly.
86'
 
Debuchy is the latest player to go into Marriner's book as he slides in on Moses and is booked.
85'
Sturridge continues to be heavily involved in all the action and he drives a shot wide after linking up with Gerrard.
84'
 
Sturridge is booked for a reckless sliding challenge on Gouffran, and he can have no complaints there.
83'
 
Raheem Sterling comes on to replace Johnson, who has got through 83 minutes after recovering from injury.
Liverpool Substitution
82'
There are loud jeers as Henderson volleys over the crossbar, and that was never going to trouble Krul.
81'
Debuchy makes a very fine headed clearance at the back post as Gerrard whips over a devilish delivery which evades three Newcastle players.
79'
Moses is proving to be a real threat in the final third now as he continues to demand the ball outwide down the left.
78'
 
Pardew makes a change as Cabaye, whose goal put Newcastle in front earlier on, is replaced by Vurnon Anita.
Newcastle United Substitution
Newcastle United Substitution
77'
There are furious appeals for handball from the Newcastle players as Moses takes the ball down inside the hosts' box and finds Sturridge, who shoots wide!
76'
It's all Liverpool now and the visitors sense that the winning goal could well come their way.
75'
Suarez hits the bar! A sweeping move from the visitors culminates in Suarez drilling a rasping shot against the crossbar! It could so easily have been a fifth goal in this match and a potential winner.
73'
It's the Suarez-Sturridge partnership again that delivers for Liverpool, and now the visitors have to be strong favourites to grab a third.
72'
 
GOAL! Liverpool are back level as Sturridge heads home from close range after a brilliant run from Suarez down the left! The visitors are back on terms, and it's the hottest partnership in the Premier League that ensures it once more. Suarez did all the hard work and all Sturridge had to do was stoop and head home from a yard out!
71'
Suarez gets a shot away sharply and Krul manages to parry the ball away to safety with the effort too hot to handle cleanly! Williamson perhaps should have prevented the shot.
70'
Tiote drives forward with a typically powerful run, only to drag a tame shot well wide of Mignolet's far post.
69'
Gouffran has his manager concerned as he goes down, but he quickly gets to his feet and jogs away smiling. He's clearly okay despite taking a knock.
68'
Moses rises high to meet a cross from the right from Johnson, but he cannot make a clean contact with his header and the ball drifts wide.
67'
 
Referee Marriner shows Gouffran a rather harsh yellow card for a sliding challenge on Sturridge, and there's not much in it to warrant the caution.
65'
STAT: Liverpool have won 10 of their last 14 Premier League games against Newcastle (L3 D1), but they have it all to do now.
64'
Henderson and Gerrard combine in midfield once more, but the visitors need a creative spark again in the final third.
63'
 
Luis Alberto is the man to come on and replace the injured Sakho as Rodgers makes an enforced change.
Liverpool Substitution
62'
Sakho looks to have taken a nasty knock as he lies down clutching his ankle on halfway.
61'
The home fans are basking in their side's efforts in this second half, while Liverpool patiently play the ball around at the back.
59'
Newcastle are working tremendously hard to protect their advantage and Liverpool have to find a response and quickly.
58'
STAT: Just three English players had previously appeared in the Premier League for Newcastle this season - fewer than any other side - but Dummett is another and he has made a real impact.
57'
What a remarkable turn of events as 10-man Newcastle go back in front through the substitute Dummett, and now Liverpool really have work to do with the extra man.
56'
 
GOAL! Paul Dummett, the substitute defender, races in at the back post to stab a clinical finish beyond Mignolet, and Newcastle are in front! It's a precise finish on the half-volley as a deep delivery comes over and he celebrates wildly! He's yet to make a Premier League start!
55'
STAT: Liverpool have scored 11 and conceded only two goals in the first half of Premier League games this season, but in the second half they have netted just once and conceded four.
54'
Cabaye again takes the initiative for the hosts as he powers forward and drives a wild shot over the crossbar!
53'
It's relentless pressure from Liverpool now as the visitors look to exploit having an extra man to run Newcastle ragged.
52'
Ben Arfa infuriates his manager and many fans by failing to control a simple pass from Cabaye altogether with the ball running out of play.
51'
What a challenge from Skrtel! Remy darts through and looks set to test Mignolet, only for Skrtel to slide in and make a brilliant last-gasp interception!
50'
There are huge roars from the home fans as Gerrard appears to block off Remy, who goes down. He's already been booked, but there wasn't much in it and referee Marriner waves play on.
49'
Johnson produces a driving run down the right before cutting in on his left foot and firing a low shot that draws a fine save from Krul at his near post! It looked to be heading towards the corner of the net, so that goes down as an excellent stop from the Newcastle keeper.
47'
Liverpool stroke the ball around patiently in their own half with Newcastle sitting off.
46'
The second half is underway at St James' Park and neither manager has deemed it necessary to make a change at the break. /// Mohammad Awwad believes Liverpool will win this match now, while @tom_janbari can see Newcastle potentially catching the Reds out on the counter-attack.
45+2'
The half-time whistle goes at St James' Park and it's 1-1 between Newcastle and Liverpool. A cracking effort from Cabaye put the hosts in front, before the match was turned on its head with Yanga-Mbiwa sent off for tugging down Suarez and conceding a penalty from which Gerrard netted his 100th Premier League goal. It's going to be tough for Newcastle from here on in.
45+1'
 
Gerrard is booked for rather cynically tugging down Cabaye just as the Newcastle midfielder wriggles free to break from deep.
45'
There will be two added minutes at the end of this first half as Liverpool keep the ball patiently in their own half.
Newcastle United Substitution
44'
 
Paul Dummett comes on for Newcastle as Moussa Sissoko has to make way as Pardew frantically reshuffles his line-up.
43'
STAT: Gerrard has now netted eight goals in the Premier League against Newcastle; only against Aston Villa (11) has he scored more.
42'
 
GOAL! Gerrard steps up and coolly dispatches the penalty, driving the ball into the left corner of the net! Krul guesses correctly but cannot quite get across to the effort from the Liverpool skipper, who has now scored 100 Premier League goals! Was there really any doubt over that one? Liverpool are back level.
41'
Will this penalty put Gerrard in the Premier League 100 goals club...?
40'
 
PENALTY! Suarez races through on goal and gets in front of Yanga-Mbiwa, who tugs the striker back on the shoulder! He goes down and Andre Marriner immediately points to the penalty spot and sends off Yanga-Mbiwa!
40'
Suarez races down the right and cuts inside before driving a low shot towards the far post, but Krul gets down quickly to parry the ball wide with a smart stop! It's the first time he's got through.
39'
Cabaye and Tiote combine to very good effect as the latter makes a fine challenge to dispossess Henderson before his team-mate sprays the ball outwide.
38'
Mignolet is forced into making a smart save down low at his near post as Sissoko lashes a fierce shot from the edge of the Liverpool box, and the keeper tips the ball wide! Skrtel really should have prevented the shot from the midfielder and his keeper will not thank him for that.
37'
STAT - There have now been 39 Premier League games between Newcastle and Liverpool without a 0-0. No fixture has had more games and no goalless draws.
36'
Cabaye attempts another ambitious shot from range, but this time Mignolet is unconcerned as the effort dips over the crossbar! Not a bad shot from that distance.
35'
Moses attempts a slick one-two with Suarez which doesn't come off, and nothing Liverpool have tried in the final third has really worked so far today.
34'
The England forward eventually returns to the field of play with new boots, and Newcastle have the ball at the back.
33'
Sturridge is rather ridiculously having a go at the fourth official for not letting him back on immediately, but he must surely know the rules.
32'
Sturridge heads off the field to change his boots, and he will miss out on this Liverpool corner while he's messing around on the touchline.
31'
Cabaye, brimming with confidence, attempts a Hollywood diagonal pass to Gouffran which goes horribly wrong and flies out of play!
30'
Johnson frustrates both Suarez and Sturridge with an overhit delivery from the right which evades the two strikers.
29'
It's been a very mixed start to the match from Liverpool, and Rodgers is pacing the touchline anxiously with his side in possession.
28'
Tiote attempts to pick out Remy with an ambitious attempted through ball, but Skrtel does well to intervene.
27'
Newcastle pile the pressure back on the visitors with some good possession in the final third, but Remy cannot quite fashion a shot.
26'
STAT: Each of Newcastle United’s last 13 Premier League goals have now been scored by Frenchmen.
25'
Suarez gets to the right byline and manages to dink the ball back with precision, only for Henderson to fail to make a clean contact inside the box.
24'
The home fans go absolutely wild, and Liverpool are left to rue giving Cabaye time and space to shoot. Should Mignolet have done better? Possibly. But it was a tremendous dipping effort from the midfielder.
23'
 
GOAL! Cabaye puts Newcastle in front! It's a fine effort as he drives forward from the halfway line with Liverpool players backing off, and he lets fly with a stunning effort which beats Mignolet at his far post! It's a fine start for Newcastle, and the hosts go in front! You cannot allow Cabaye to shoot from there with so much freedom.
21'
Gerrard heads wide as he rises high to win the ball and it was a poor effort really.
20'
Santon clears off the line! Suarez beats Tiote to the ball in the Newcastle box as Gerrard whips over a testing delivery, and that's the first real chance of the match! It may have been drifting just wide, but Santon makes a valuable clearance.
19'
Johnson wins a corner for Liverpool with a strong run down the right which draws Santon across to deflect a cross behind.
18'
Debuchy lofts a ball up towards Sissoko but there's too much on it and the ball is claimed by Mignolet. The match is lacking in quality so far.
17'
Wow, that's ambitious! Remy shows his immense confidence by taking on a frankly absurd effort from close to the halfway line. It runs well, well wide.
16'
Cabaye swings over a corner from the left, but again it's Gerrard who stoops to head clear from the near post and Pardew is not impressed by the delivery.
15'
Cissokho makes a fine run down the left before he is finally challenged by Debuchy, but that's a bright effort from the Liverpool man.
14'
Sakho wins another towering header as Cabaye attempts a raking diagonal ball to no success.
13'
Newcastle build patiently from the back now as the hosts are urged on by their fans once more. It's been a relatively subdued start in terms of action.
12'
STAT: Only one fixture in Premier League history (Arsenal v Tottenham - 125 goals) has seen more goals than Newcastle v Liverpool games (122). We've yet to come close to a goal this afternoon yet though.
11'
Johnson bounds down the right for Liverpool, but his attempted cross to Suarez is poor and Newcastle can build once more.
10'
Moses comes to life with a bright run through the Newcastle midfield, but Sturridge's shot is weak and straight at Krul as the move breaks down.
9'
Gouffran looks to thread a ball through for the onrushing Debuchy, who has made a bright start, but the delivery is overhit and the potential opening comes to nothing.
8'
Ben Arfa continues to float around, playing just off Remy and giving the Liverpool defenders something to think about with his late runs.
7'
Gerrard makes another promising burst forward from midfield, but neither side has created an opening yet as Santon sweeps up.
6'
Sakho gets down the left for Liverpool but cannot pick out a delivery into the box as Newcastle clear any danger through Tiote.
5'
Debuchy lets fly from 30 yards as the defender draws Mignolet into a solid save, and that really gets the crowd going once more.
4'
Gerrard heads away to clear as Cabaye fails to pick out a team-mate with his delivery from the resulting set piece.
3'
Newcastle win a free kick deep inside the Liverpool half as Skrtel fouls Remy, and this could be a good set piece from which to attack for the hosts.
2'
Gerrard makes a pacy run down the right for Liverpool after a period of good Newcastle possession, and it's a frantic start from both sides.
1'
There's a cracking atmosphere at St James' Park as the hosts stroke the ball around at the back early on. An unsurprisingly fast tempo to the game already.
-
Was that a harsh decision from referee Marriner or did Yanga-Mbiwa have to go? Will Liverpool run away with this match now that Newcastle are down to 10 men, or will the hosts get reorganised and frustrate the visitors? Get in touch with your thoughts via Twitter @Dan_Eurosport...
12:40
Loic Remy has scored five goals in as many Premier League games for Newcastle, while Luis Suarez has scored three goals in his two games since returning from his lengthy suspension. Surely there will be goals in this early kick-off, and we're just five minutes away now with the players in the tunnel...
12:35
There has already been action outside the ground today as some fans have been protesting in the streets at the state of the club under Mike Ashley. The demonstration, organised by the Time 4 Change group, saw several hundred supporters parade through the city centre. The club's lack of transfer activity over the summer has been one of the major issues cited.
12:30
Liverpool are 4/5 favourites for a win that would put them back on top of the Premier League table, at least temporarily. Newcastle are 7/2 for victory and the draw is 11/4. So that's how the satchel swingers go - what do you think will happen today at St James' Park? Get in touch with your predictions via Twitter @Dan_Eurosport
12:25
One man who never indulges in such statements is Brendan Rodgers, who has been unsurprisingly upbeat ahead of this match. "I can't take anything away from how we've been so far. In terms of results, we've been absolutely brilliant and this is the most competitive league in the world. What I can't argue with is the work of the players, the honesty of the players, how humble they are and how willing they are to come in to train every day to be better."
12:20
Who doesn't like to hear cheesy quotes from their manager that feel more at home in a self-help book? Well, Alan Pardew has challenged his Newcastle team to 'make a statement about the destiny of their season' today. "It puts fire in your belly!" he says. Who is to argue with that?
12:15
Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and forward Hatem Ben Arfa are in the Newcastle side for today's match, but there is no place in the side for striker Papiss Cisse or injured defender Fabricio Coloccini. What do you make of the two line-ups and why not have a stab at a predicted scoreline? You can get in touch via Twitter @Dan_Eurosport...
12:10
So for Liverpool, defender Aly Cissokho makes his first Premier League start for Liverpool, while right-back Glen Johnson also returns to the side. Jose Enrique misses out and Raheem Sterling can only make the bench.
12:05
