What 364 day Liverpool record did Newcastle break on Saturday?

Tim Krul

Liverpool failed to score away from home in the Premier League for the first time in almost a year at the weekend.

Liverpool were defeated by Newcastle United at the weekend, as yet another sub-par performance saw them swatted away by Alan Pardew's men.

The goal from Ayoze Perez was enough for a 1-0 victory at St James Park, meaning that Newcastle had managed to achieve something no other team had in a little under a year - not concede to Liverpool in the league at home.

Liverpool's away form toward the end of last season was stunning. In the end it was slip-ups at home that cost them the unlikely title win they pushed for - results such as the 2-0 defeat against an understrength Chelsea.

Away from home they always found the net.

Until Saturday, where some decent stops from Tim Krul apart, they never really got to grips with a resurgent Newcastle United side.

The last time Liverpool failed to score in the Premier League was way back in November of 2013. Goals from Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey saw Arsenal win 2-0 at The Emirates on the 2nd November 2013 - 364 days previously.

So well done Newcastle United for breaking a quite remarkable sequence of away performances from Liverpool. But to be honest, the way Liverpool have been playing this season, it has been a long time coming.
