Premier League leaders Liverpool maintain their 100% start to the season with another attacking screen that was dominant and withdrew an early scare to sweep.
Sadio Mane was again their go-to guy, scoring in the first half after Jetro Willems’ handsome target for Newcastle had awarded a shock lead to Steve Bruce’s side.
Mohamed Salah added a third after the fracture, with the next member of Liverpool’s attacking trinity Roberto Firmino resisting the show with a great performance from the seat and supplying two aids that were brilliant.
The Reds have won 14 league matches in a row in a series that goes back into a draw at Everton in March – the joint third-best winning run in English top-flight history – and go five points clear at the top, together with second-placed Manchester City playing at the night game.
Newcastle never jeopardized to construct on their shock lead – that came via their only shot – and also couldn’t get near the European winners for substantial periods of a one-sided game.
They stay a stage above the bottom , in 16th place.
The spotlight was on Salah and Mane at Burnley, where the Senegal forward was annoyed at a lack of service from his time out following their clear disagreement.
However back on the front of home ground Liverpool three were once again on the same page and proved the difference.
Firmino played with an hour for Brazil in a game that ended at about 06:00 BST on Wednesday morning in Los Angeles in midweek, and the plan was supposed to give him some rest as Divock Origi began on the remaining front three.
However an accident for the Belgium striker meant the Brazil striker was introduced sooner than anticipated.
Mane had equalised by that point, curling superbly into the top corner and collecting a pass.
For people paying attention, Salah distinguished with a punch of the atmosphere.
Firmino slipped in Mane with a pass and then robbed Christian Atsu. Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka should have claimed it but pushed it back towards Mane to permit the Liverpool forward at Anfield with a tap-in because of his goal in his last 21 Premier League appearances.
Following the breakup, Firmino was more notable, before setting the silent Salah with a assist up laying on chances for his full-backs.
The Brazil player hauled the ball then backheeled it to the route of Salah, who did the rest.
The list of 18 top-flight wins in a row of manchester City stays on the agenda for Liverpool – as does the record of nine wins in a row at the start of a Premier League season of Chelsea.
