  1. Newcastle are plunged deeper into relegation trouble after Liverpool overcome the absence of Suarez with a crushing 6-0 win at St James' Park. Early goals from Agger and Henderson put the visitors on their way to victory in the first game of Suarez's 10-match ban. And Sturridge's second-half double followed by a tap-in from the returning Borini and a Henderson free-kick after Debuchy had been sent off further embarrassed Newcastle. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction.

  2. 90 + 3

    FULL-TIME: NEWCASTLE 0 LIVERPOOL 6

  3. 90 + 2

    Liverpool are playing keep ball in the closing seconds. Both teams now just want the final whistle.

  4. 90 + 1

    Coutinho has been my man of the match. The Brazilian had acres of acres of space and exploited it superbly.

  5. 90

    ADDED TIME: There will be a minimum of three minutes added time before the final whistle.

  6. 89

    Liverpool fans are now ironically cheering when Newcastle manage to play a few passes. The home team are desperate for the final whistle.

  7. 88

    Liverpool know this game was won a long time ago and are not too interested in attacking in the remaining few minutes.

  8. 87

    This will be a devastating loss for Newcastle amid an ugly atmosphere on Tyneside in the wake of their last defeat by derby rivals Sunderland and they will remain just five points from safety having played a game more than Wigan Athletic and Aston Villa.

  9. 86

    The only noise around St James' Park is that of Liverpool fans singing.

  10. 85

    Sturridge is not too happy to have been taken off when he was on a possible hat-trick.

  11. 84

    Liverpool send on Suso and Shelvey in place of Sturridge and the excellent Coutinho.

  12. 83

    Henderson's own eyes light up at the prospect of a hat-trick when the ball drops for him in the penalty area. But Taylor just clears first.

  13. 82

    Liverpool fans are doing the conga around the stands at St James' Park.

  14. 81

    It is almost seven as a Coutinho long-ranger rattles the woodwork after being tipped against the crossbar by a good save from Elliot.

  15. 80

    Liverpool are preparing to bring on Shelvey.

  16. 79

    Johnson skips into the penalty area with another attack but Taylor is just across to cover.

  17. 78

    There are now empty seats all around St James' Park. With Newcastle down to 10 men, it could yet get worse. Liverpool look capable of picking off their hosts with every attack.

  18. It is turning into an angry atmosphere at St James' Park. Henderson took the free-kick and curled it to the back post. No-one gets a touch and it drifts inside the far post. Pardew is looking on from the touchline in disbelief. After the derby hammering by Sunderland, he is going to have a tough job explaining this one.

  19. 76

    GOAL HENDERSON (0-6)!!!

  20. 75

    Debuchy is sent off for his second yellow card after clattering Coutinho! Debuchy meant to do that and it was pure frustration. This is a very poor performance from Newcastle, who are losing all their discipline.
