Ebene News – GB – Liverpool stalemate has fans desperate for star’s return

The Reds played a 0-0 draw against Newcastle United, a result that was shaped by United goalkeeper Karl Darlow

Darlow played as if trying to earn a spot on England coach Gareth Southgate’s next squad as he turned down Liverpool’s top three

Despite the Magpies’ goal with 11 shots, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah failed to hit the back of the net and now Manchester United could go to the top of the table if they beat Aston Villa

Liverpool could have lost the game if Alisson hadn’t been there to fend off the late header from Toon defender Ciaran Clarke

However, the headlines here will rest on Liverpool’s inability to score against a Newcastle side who were in bad shape

Diogo Jota injured his knee against Danish club Midtjylland in an unnecessary Champions League game, and fans are desperate to bring the Portuguese star to the side for these tough matches

With five goals in nine Premier League games, Jota has been the man who made the difference every time He hit the back of the net in vital moments against Brighton, West Ham and Sheffield United

Could the former Wolves man have been a game-changer against Newcastle? It’s hard to say, because Steve Bruce had defended his men well and Darlow was in such good shape Fabian Schar also snagged the ball from the line to deny Liverpool a goal

But Jota would’ve brought a different movement to things He attacks the six-yard box better than anyone in the squad and moves like a veteran center-forward

It could have caused some chaos among the Geordie ranks and made room for Mane or Salah as they clipped the wings
