    Kris Jefferson: Surely Karl Darlow deserves a call up to the next England team? Arguably the best keeper in the league at the moment

    Tom Gardner: Karl Darlow deserves an England call up on form alone. Best English keeper by a mile at the moment. C’mon Southgate - make the right decision.

  5. 'We played super football but have to respect the result'

    FT: Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool


    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp speaking to Amazon Prime: "We found a lot of solutions today, created chances but didn’t use them thats why it’s 0-0. But I liked the game – this is a draw which we are not happy with the result but I’m fine with the performance because that’s the way we have to play and protect we did all that but it’s still disappointing. It is how it is.

    "We had all these moments – it’s normal. We had to keep going and they defended with all they had but then we were left with just one player up front. Played super football but we have to respect the result and take what was right and what was wrong. I don’t think much was wrong except the finishing and we have to just keep going and if we can finish those things then we will win football games.

    "The last thing I’m thinking about is our position in the table at the moment. It’s nice but it doesn’t mean anything. We drew tonight and we are still top of the table so that just shows how difficult the season is for everybody. When life gives you lemons make lemonade. We have to keep going, next game, Southampton, Aston Villa, Man United and that’s good we know about our responsibility. We didn’t get the result we wanted but it’s not the worst thing in the world there are worse things happening."

  6. 'The jersey is Darlow's at the moment'

    FT: Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool

    Newcastle United

    More from Newcastle boss Steve Bruce, on Callum Wilson: "He's a proper number nine, he's been terrific since he arrived and given us that goal threat and physicality. He leads the line terrifically well we have to improve to get him some support and something to feed off. In the final third that's what we need to do - defensively we do well but we need to convert it into opportunities for our centre forward.

    On Karl Darlow: "He's had to wait patiently for his chance and certainly with the way he's trained - Martin Dubravka is now back fit but we needed our second goalkeeper to step up and at the moment the jersey's his because of his performances. We've had to call on him a bit too much at times but there's no denying hes been terrific all season."

  7. 'They've put in a hell of a shift'

    FT: Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle manager Steve Bruce speaking to Amazon Prime: "We rode our luck at times and our keeper has made a few saves which you have to when you're playing against one of the best teams in the country and in Europe. But their keeper made a couple of great saves as well so I couldn't fault them to a man.

    "We did cause a few problems for ourselves we need to improve on the ball especially late on we gave it away cheaply and caused ourselves a few problems with that but that's probably the tiredness and fatigue. They've put in a hell of a shift not just tonight but the other day against Man City as well."

  8. 'The spirit and desire was there for all to see'

    FT: Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle boss Steve Bruce, speaking to BBC Sport: "The goalkeeper has produced some great saves but the spirit and attitude and we created a few chances ourselves. When you play against arguably one of the best teams in the world you need a bit of luck but the spirit and the endeavour was there for all to see. I am delighted with them. Overall, very, very pleased with the performance.

    "We are trying to be a little higher up the pitch and I think that has been the case in the last few games. We've had Manchester City and now Liverpool so to get a point is terrific.

    "The one thing you want is competition and you can see Karl Darlow is doing all he can to keep the shirt. He works tirelessly behind the scenes but of course Martin Dubravka has won all the plaudits and the player of the year award.

    "For us, we knew we let everyone down in a big cup tie. We blew it. We have to take the criticism that comes our way and accept it but I hope the supporters who watched this game today could really enjoy the performance. It was a great performance and let's look forward to Sunday."

  9. Post update

    FT: Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool

    That is Newcastle's first point against Liverpool in the Premier League since October 2017, ending a run of five consecutive defeats.

    It was the first goalless draw between Newcastle and Liverpool in 74 matches in all competitions - last doing so in a top-flight game in February 1974.

  10. 'I am happy with things I saw tonight'

    FT: Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool


    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, speaking to BBC Sport: "The Premier League is only good teams. We had big chances. The opposition is good and that happens all the time. You might not think I have to tip my hat to my team but I like the performance. It was really good, can we play better football? Yes, but in this game we did more than enough to win it.

    "I think we had four 100% chances. We have won against Newcastle before with fewer chances. Tonight we didn't but we accept that. I am happy with the things I saw tonight and I can really work with that.

    "The boys are frustrated and rightly so but not about the performance. It is a basis to build on for the next few days, weeks, months.

    On Thiago: "We could see a lot of moments how good a footballer he is. Now we have to see how he reacts and all that stuff. We have another game in four days. James Milner played a super game in midfield after an injury break. Nat Phillips did his job against, really strong against 100% strikers.

    "A really good game but not the result we want."

  11. Post update

    FT: Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool

    Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool's position in the table is "the last thing" he is thinking about at the moment.

    His side failed to score in a Premier League game for the first time in 22 matches tonight.

    His words coming up shortly.

  12. 'We had enough chances to win'

    FT: Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool


    Liverpool midfielder James Milner, speaking to BBC Sport: "I thought they defended well and the keeper obviously played well but I thought we played well as well. We had enough opportunities to win the game but tonight it would not go in for us.

    "We had a lot of chances and a few situations where the final cross or ball was not good enough. As a team we didn't finish off our situations well enough and that was disappointing. It didn't happen for us tonight."

  13. 'Credit to the lads'

    FT: Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle goalkeeper Karl Darlow speaking to Amazon Prime: "Pleased to be out there doing what I can for the team when we take points like this tonight and it's a clean sheet I've been desperate for because I've only had a couple. It's credit to the lads and hopefully we can keep up the effort for Leicester."

    On potential England call up: "Silly for me to not admit I'm aware of it, I know what's going on and hopefully I can just keep performing well and it might put me in contention. Just got to try and keep doing what I'm doing and hopefully it might happen."

    On next game against Leicester: "Another tough game, we've had a few tough ones in a row so we know we'll have to work extra hard and recover and keep moving up the table and doing the best we can."

    Spoor: Will never understand bringing on a player to change the game with 2 minutes left. Never even gets a touch!

    Rachel T: A full St James’s Park would have been ROCKING at that result.

  15. 'Delighted with the clean sheet'

    FT: Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle goalkeeper Karl Darlow, speaking to BBC Sport: “I am delighted with a clean sheet and a point at home. We have come off the back of a tough game against Manchester City so to get a point against them we are happy.

    “It was terrific to see the lads’ work rate and to come out with a point. I can only concentrate on what I am doing. It has been brilliant to have him [Martin Dubravka] back to be honest and to work with him again. It is good to be under pressure.”

  17. 'Newcastle worked very hard'

    Newcastle 0-0 Liverpool

    Simon Grayson

    Ex-Sunderland manager on BBC Radio 5 live

    Karl Darlow reacted really well all night - and his back three in front of him.

    Any time the ball dropped they were there quickly to clear it and stop Liverpool having a few easy tap ins.

    They've worked very hard. Incidents at both ends and an entertaining 0-0.
