Done the Toon proud’ – Many Newcastle fans react to fan news ahead of weekend clash

Tottenham can now focus on overturning a 1-0 first-leg deficit against Ajax in the Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday.

Fans have sent their best wishes to Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah, who was forced from the field of play after suffering a head injury as a result of a collision with Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka during a 3-2 away win.

The Egypt global, who scored his 22nd league goal of the campaign in the 3-2 win, will be observed for concussion before a decision is taken on his involvement against Barcelona.

Liverpool appear set to be without a host of key names including Virgil van Dijk for Tuesday's Champions League decider against Barcelona. Otherwise you [are taking a] risk, and I have to say that I made a mistake.

Jurgen Klopp couldn't hide his delight after watching Divock Origi's late victor against Newcastle United on Saturday evening, describing it as "a fairy tale". "I love it. It was really a big moment".

Arsenal's 1-1 draw against Brighton meant the Stamford Bridge club are guaranteed Champions League football next season. "No one expected us to be in this position at the start of the season", the Tottenham manager said after Nathan Ake's late victor and Mark Travers' superb display. Can you get more than 94 points?

The defender stressed it is hard to make comparisons with that scenario as in April 2016 they returned to Anfield with the tie level and with an away goal to their credit but he believes that - and their never-say-die attitude this season - will give them inspiration. We just knew we had to try it.

It was a barely deserved victory and Newcastle warrant major credit for a combative display, when they had little to play for having already secured survival. "Many times we have been down and out but equalized late on, or scored a late [winning] goal".

Liverpool started Daniel Sturridge against Newcastle as Firmino was once again absent and the prognosis ahead of the Barcelona game does not look positive. "The atmosphere was like something happened between them in the past".

"What I heard, he got the hip of the goalie on his head", Klopp said.

"The doctor had to make a decision and the decision was off the pitch", talkSPORT quote the German manager as saying.
