Premier League: Newcastle shock Liverpool

Georgina Wijnaldum of Newcastle celebrates after scoring

Newcastle United secured a surprise 2-0 victory over Liverpool in the Premier League. Steve McClaren's struggling team fought well against an under-par Reds side, who had gone into the game following four-straight wins. Martin Skrtel's deflected Georginio Wijnaldum's cross into his own net to give the hosts a 69th minute lead. Wijnaldum then secured the points in stoppage time, finishing a counter-attack off as Liverpool pressed for an equaliser.
