Newcastle United v Liverpool

A 3-1 victory over Newcastle United ensured champions Liverpool finished the 2019/20 season with 99 points, their highest-ever Premier League total. 

The Reds conceded the fastest-ever Matchweek 38 goal in the Premier League, as Dwight Gayle took 25 seconds to score from Jonjo Shelvey's through-ball. 

Virgil van Dijk's looping header at the back post drew Liverpool level seven minutes before half-time. 

Divock Origi's powerful strike from outside the penalty area gave Liverpool the lead just before the hour mark, before substitute Sadio Mane added a third with a minute to play. 

The win means Liverpool finish the season 18 points clear of second-placed Manchester City, although their total is one short of City's record of 100 in 2017/18. 

Newcastle end in 13th position on 44 points.
