FC Liverpool puts Manchester City under pressure again in the English Premier League.
Thanks to a 1-0 (1-0) at Newcastle United, the team from team manager Jürgen Klopp took over at least temporarily.
The former Leipzig Naby Keita (19th) scored the decisive goal.
Three days before the semi-final second leg in the Champions League against FC Villarreal, Klopp gave some regular forces a break.
Among other things, Mohamed Salah and Thiago took a seat on the bench.
Newcastle held out all of the game against Gut, but a goal was denied to them.
The Reds, on the other hand, also remain in series without defeat in the 15th league game.
Defending champion Manchester City on Saturday evening (6:30 p.m./Sky) in the guest appearance at Leeds United has the chance to pass Liverpool again with a win.
