Man of the match: Steven Gerrard.
Moment of the match: Suarez free kick nearly wins it at the death.
Moan of the match: Henderson needs shooting practice.

A point gained? Or two lost? Playing against 10 men for nearly 50 minutes of this match most Liverpool fans would have expected the Reds to win this game comfortably. But having come from behind twice against a spirited and much improved Newcastle side this was a point gained where last season they would have left St James’s Park empty-handed.

Moan of the match: Henderson needs shooting practice.

A point gained? Or two lost? Playing against 10 men for nearly 50 minutes of this match most Liverpool fans would have expected the Reds to win this game comfortably. But having come from behind twice against a spirited and much improved Newcastle side this was a point gained where last season they would have left St James’s Park empty-handed.

It’s probably true that to be considered true title contenders Liverpool would have to take three points here, however this game showed how thin the Liverpool squad is with Lucas and Enrique both being badly missed and their replacements not up to match speed this time around.

Lucas in particular was sorely missed from midfield serving out his one match ban for picking up five bookings and since those days when he was derided under Rafa Benitez he is now a firm fans favourite after recovering from cruciate knee surgery.

Twice the Reds went behind and twice they managed to equalise which shows how much improved this team is and those fans who are decrying the two points dropped should be looking at last season’s league table to draw comparisons.

If only Henderson could find his shooting boots. Once again he was a candidate for the man of the match performer but his shooting was abysmal and four times he blazed over the bar in good positions just outside the area. Extra shooting practice for Mr Henderson please this week.

The Achilles heel at set plays is still a glaring weakness in the Reds defence and I hope that’s the last we’ll see of the 532 system because once they changed back to 442 later in the second half it was clear that the side was much more balanced.

Roy Evans persisted in playing 532 even when it was clear to nearly everyone that it wasn’t working and I hope Brendan Rodgers isn’t going to be a stick in the mud over this one.

A good point gained then, and it keeps Liverpool in champions league place contention which has to be this season’s ultimate aim.
