Liverpool win 2000th Premier League game, as Chelsea drop points

Liverpool broke yet another record as they brushed aside bottom Newcastle United at Anfield on Thursday night.Goals from Jota, Salah and a rocket from Trent late on were enough to cancel out Shelvey’s 7th minute opener and hand the Reds a win.With Fabinho, Van Dijk and Curtis Jones all sidelined by Covid pre-match, Konate started alongside Matip, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replaced Fabinho in the midfield.The 6-times European Champions reduced the gap between them and league leaders Manchester City to just 1.And with Chelsea dropping two points to a youthful and injury-ravaged Everton side, it is beginning to look like a two-horse race.Mason Mount gave the host the lead in the second half, with just 20 minutes left on the clock. But Branthwaite drew the visitors level just 4 minutes later.Liverpool’s victory on the night was their 2, 000th, making them the first English side to reach that milestone.
