    Right then, my gaffer has told me to stop having a public conversation with Anfield Road Steve, so I'm off.

    Thanks for your company, it's been fun. Enjoy your Saturday night.

    SMS Message: Actually I am waiting for a David Bowie birthday tribute night to start in a bar in Liverpool, really looking forward to it and so pleased I got the truth out there. If the tribute is not great we won't boo or criticise on social media, we are better than that. from Anfield Road Steve

    We're almost done here. Remember, there's two Premier League games on Sunday afternoon - Everton host Bournemouth before Manchester United's trip to Wembley to face Tottenham. On Monday, Manchester City entertain Wolves.

    Javel: I don't see any of Palace, Burnley or Southampton going down, so it's going to be a dog fight among the current bottom four

  7. 'We were fighting for every ball'

    Chelsea 2-1 Newcastle

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez speaking to BBC Sport: “We conceded a goal we could avoid but after that we were fighting for every ball; these players care you could see that.

    "We scored and then controlled the last few minutes of the first half so it’s a pity but a piece of quality made the difference.

    "You could see a lot of positives with the performance but no points. We knew that they would keep the ball and we had to maximize what we did when we got the ball. We had some chances on the counter but our final pass wasn't there."

    Anfield Road Steve has lobbed a grenade into this debate and is sitting back, enjoying the carnage. I bet he has feet up, cigar in mouth, beer in hand.

    YamyamWolf: Re: Anfield Road Steve: The great fans blaming the grass length at the Etihad? The pitch at Molineux? Looking down on an FA Cup exit because its seen as below you?

    This one could go on for a while. I've almost forgotten that we've been watching a game between Chelsea and Newcastle...

    inge: What if Anfield Road Steve is just an honest supporter, that believes in his team and just tries to understand the wave of hatred directed at Liverpool and all of their fans?

  13. 'We slept for 20 minutes'

    Chelsea 2-1 Newcastle


    Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri speaking to BBC Sport: “Today was very important to get points. We started well but after the goal we slept for 20 minutes, so by the end of the first half we were in trouble.

    "We were better in the second half. I’m very happy with result but we need to improve mentally and technically because we lost a lot of the ball in a stupid way.

    "I think our wingers attacked the space better than in the last five or six matches but we need to attack the box better.”

    I'll be honest, a lot of our tweets and texts are currently getting stuck into Anfield Road Steve here. I do hope he gives a reply.

    Richard Sharp: Re Anfield Road Steve. The same fans that sent death threats to Karius? Those great Liverpool fans?

    CallumDC: Pretty sure Anfield Road Steve is on a wind up.

  18. Post update

    Chelsea 2-1 Newcastle United

    It's been pointed out to me that the 1988-89 season, when Newcastle last had fewer points than this after 22 top-flight games, is indeed 30 years ago (see 19:32). I have a degree in maths, you know...

  19. 'My future is at Chelsea'

    Chelsea 2-1 Newcastle


    Chelsea midfielder Willian told BT Sport: "I think it's always difficult in the Premier League. We have to be more clinical. Today we couldn't do that but we have the quality to do it in the next games.

    "But I think the character was good and the most important is to win the game.

    "I scored a good goal. I found the space and put the ball exactly where I wanted.

    On stories linking him with a move away from the club: "My future is here at Chelsea, I don't know what you're talking about. I didn't see the papers."
