  • So near but in the end so far for Liverpool's title challenge. Their target was the top-four at the start of the season and that mission has been accomplished with aplomb. In the end, the fact they were challenging on the final day is testament to the remarkable strides that have been made this season. Understandbly there will be disappointment, but that will be shortlived and some shrewd transfer business in the summer can help make sure Liverpool will again be challengers next season.

  • We will have a minimum of four minutes added time.

    90
  • Liverpool are looking for a late flourish but Gerrard can't find the run of Sterling.

    89
  • Back to the Dummett red card and I can't understand why it was one - it wasn't a clear goalscoring opportunity and there didn't seem to be that much contact. I can see it being appealed and overturned.

    88
  • Late pressure from Newcastle who force a corner but Liverpool eventually clear their lines.

    87
  • Lucas is booked for a foul on De Jong.

    86
  • Dummutt is showna straight red card which seems very harsh.

    85
  • Liverpool break through Suarez and he is brought down by Dummett just inside the Newcastle half.

    84
  • Newcastle have a free-kick 30-yards out which Sammy Ameobi takes but it's poor and into the wall.

    83
  • Sterling puts the ball in the Newcastle net after a shot from Lucas had been blocked but he is flagged offside.

    82
  • Gerrard plays a backheel through to Suarez but Dummett gets in a great tackle to take it off him.

    81
  • The pace has slowed now and again Liverpool are moving the ball around from one side of the field to the other.

    80
  • Tiote is forced to come off and is replaced by Paul Dummett.

    79
  • A break in play with Tiote needing treatment for cramp.

    78
  • A standing ovation for Sturridge who is replaced by Lucas.

    77
  • Sterling is chopped down by Haidara. Gerrard takes the kick which Agger gets his head to but is unable to get it on target.

    76
  • Newcastle bring on Sammy Ameobi for Gouffran.

    75
  • It's now Liverpool knocking the ball around with confidence - a far cry from the first hour.

    74
  • Countinho puts in a robust challenge on Tiote who is left writhing on the ground, with the Liverpool man perhaps lucky to escape a booking.

    73
  • Sterling powers forward from inside his own half but his intended pass to slip in Suarez is intercepted by Coloccini.
