Newcastle 3-0 Liverpool – 1993/94

The first Premier League encounter between these two sides in the Premier League era proved to be a memorable match for Andy Cole, whose devastating hat-trick inside the first 30 minutes ruined Graeme Souness’ Liverpool.

This victory was made all the more impressive by the fact that Newcastle actually won promotion to the top flight the season before and Kevin Keegan’s side went on to finish third in the table while the Reds could only manage an uninspiring eighth.

Liverpool 4-3 Newcastle – 1995/96

A number of pundits view this as one of the greatest matches ever played including talkSPORT’s Clive Tyldesley so this was obviously going to make this list of classic Liverpool vs Newcastle encounters.

Robbie Fowler gave Liverpool the lead inside two minutes but goals from Les Ferdinand and David Ginola gave Newcastle a 2-1 lead at half-time.

The former Reds hotshot levelled the game but Faustino Asprilla’s lovely finish restored the Magpies’ lead.

Stan Collymore equalised moments later and his emphatic finish got Liverpool a dramatic winner in the 90th minute – a goal which effectively handed the title to Liverpool’s long-time rivals Manchester United that season.

Liverpool 4-3 Newcastle – 1996/97

They effectively did it all again in the same game the following season, with Liverpool coming out on top thanks to Fowler’s 90th-minute header.

It looked set to be a rout when the Reds raced to a 3-0 lead at half-time thanks to goals from Steve McManaman, Patrik Berger and Fowler.

Newcastle showed tremendous spirit after the break and goals from Keith Gillespie, Asprilla and Warren Barton looked to have earned them an unlikely point.

But Fowler had other ideas and his goal broke Geordie hearts as Newcastle lost another Premier League title to Manchester United, however, the Red Devils won it by a bigger margin this time around.

Anything Cole can do, Michael Owen can do just as well.

Newcastle had no answers for Owen’s brilliance

Fresh from his stunning World Cup in France, Owen, who was still 18-years-old at the time, tore through the helpless Magpies defence to bag a brilliant first-half hat-trick.

Owen would go on to sign for Newcastle seven years later after spending a year at Real Madrid and the former striker has come under huge criticism for saying he never wanted to move to St James’ Park in his recent book, Reboot – My Life, My Time.

Newcastle 3-1 Liverpool – 2010/11

This was arguably the game that inspired Liverpool to shell out £35million to sign Andy Carroll from Newcastle in January 2011.

A month earlier, the physical striker terrorised the Reds defence, providing an assist for Kevin Nolan as well as scoring a long-range effort as Newcastle won 3-1.

However, things never worked out for Carroll on Merseyside as he only managed eleven goals in 58 appearances.

Newcastle 2-3 Liverpool – 2018/19

The last time the two sides met was also an entertaining game as Divock Origi’s glancing header earned Liverpool a dramatic winner.

Goals from Christian Atsu and Salomon Rondon cancelled out efforts from Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah but the Belgian striker had the final say.

The win for Liverpool ultimately proved fruitless in their bid to land a first Premier League title though as Manchester City won their remaining games.
