Klopp puts title down to ‘destiny’

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes his side can do no more to end a 29- year wait to win the Premier League as Divock Origi ’ s late winner earned a thrilling 3 – 2 victory at Newcastle on Saturday despite losing Mohamed Salah to a head knock .

Salah was stretchered off 20 minutes from time making him a doubt for Tuesday’ s Champions League semi – final , second leg against Barcelona , while Klopp confirmed Roberto Firmino will definitely miss the visit of the Spanish champions to Anfield.

“ We’ ll have to see . He (Salah ) took a blow to the head . He watched the game in the locker room, he was OK , but we have to do more tests, ” Klopp told Sky Sports .

Overturning a 3 – 0 first leg deficit against Barca now looks an even more monumental task , although Liverpool stay in the hunt for the Premier League title .

However , rivals Manchester City have two games remaining to Liverpool ’ s one.

In a recurring theme of a thrilling title race , Liverpool dug deep late on to continue asking questions of the champions by moving two points ahead of City once more .

“ I accepted long ago we do everything (we can ) , ” said Klopp , whose side have lost only once in the league this season .

“ Whether we will be champions or not is destiny because we cannot do more .

“ Even in the draws we tried everything to win the games. The boys showed in each second they really want to win it . ”

Faced with a difficult balancing act to strike , Klopp made four changes to the side beaten by Barcelona in midweek.

Trent Alexander- Arnold was one of those recalled and the England right – back was to have an eventful evening at both ends .

Alexander- Arnold ’ s corner found Van Dijk completely unmarked to open the scoring as Rondon slipped and the PFA’ s Player of the Year powered home his fifth goal of the season .

Newcastle had barely ventured over the halfway line in the first 20 minutes , but levelled with their first serious attack .

Matt Ritchie ’ s driven cross was turned goalwards by Rondon , whose shot was saved on the line by the arm of Alexander-Arnold .

A penalty and a red card would likely have followed for the Liverpool defender had Atsu not put home the rebound .

All of a sudden Newcastle looked the more dangerous side as Ayoze Perez turned Van Dijk before smashing off the crossbar .

However , an enthralling first 28 minutes took another twist when Alexander- Arnold made the most of his reprieve to still be on the field with his second assist of the night .

His cross found Salah inside the area , but the Egyptian still had plenty to do as he cushioned a finish into the far corner on his weaker right foot to move two in front of teammate Sadio Mane and Sergio Aguero in the race for the Golden Boot .

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez could have been taking charge of the Magpies for the last time at home as the Spaniard ’ s contract runs out at the end of the season .

But his side did not go down without a fight as Rondon ’ s sweet strike levelled once more early in the second half .

“ We will have conversations in the next couple of weeks . It is so simple , you can see the potential , ” said Benitez , whose four seasons at the club have been marred by a frosty relationship with owner Mike Ashley .

“ I am really proud and pleased because we stayed up but I would like to do something more . ”

Salah was caught on the head by Martin Dubravka as Newcastle ’ s Slovakian goalkeeper raced from his goal to punch the ball to safety .

He was stretchered off , his hands over his face to applause from both sets of supporters .

“ He got the hip of the goalie on his head , ” added Klopp .

“ When we came in he was sitting in the dressing room and watched the game .

He was then fine but we have to wait . ”

Without two thirds of their prolific frontline , Liverpool would have been forgiven for thinking their chase of City was up .

But , not for the first time this season , Origi , who scored a 96th minute winner against Everton in the Merseyside derby in December , came off the bench to score a vital late goal as he got his head to Xherdan Shaqiri ’ s free – kick .
