Liverpool 100 not out against Newcastle in the Premier League

By Sports Desk September 14, 2019

Liverpool chalked up a Premier League landmark against Newcastle United with their second goal in Saturday's encounter at Anfield.

Sadio Mane tapped in his second of the match to make it 2-1 after a Martin Dubravka error shortly before the break on Merseyside.

It marked the 100th goal Liverpool have scored against Newcastle in the Premier League, becoming just the third team to rack up a century of strikes against a single opponent in the competition.

Arsenal (107) and Manchester United (100) both achieved the feat against Everton, meaning Liverpool are the first side to reach the milestone number against a team that has not been ever present in the Premier League.

Newcastle have not won a top-flight fixture against Liverpool at Anfield since April 16, 1994 and were needing a turnaround to alter that fact.

    Steven Bergwijn says Jose Mourinho was his childhood inspiration as he targets winning the Champions League after completing his move to Tottenham from PSV.

    The 22-year-old sealed his switch Spurs on Wednesday on a five-and-a-half-year contract in a deal reportedly worth around £27million.

    Netherlands international Bergwijn has set himself ambitious goals as well as discussing the significance Mourinho had to him as he watched the game growing up.

    "It's an amazing move for me, an amazing club," the winger, who will wear the number 23 shirt, said told Spurs TV.

    "Just look around the training ground, it's amazing. It's an honour to be here. 

    "I just spoke to the manager as well. When I was a young boy I looked up to a coach like Jose Mourinho, now I play for him.

    "It's an honour for me to be here, a dream to play in the Premier League and I will give whatever I have, whatever I can bring, I will give it all for the club and for this team.

    "I look from day to day. I want to be a good player here, score goals, give assists. I want to win the Champions League. I watched last season, the team went so far, and I hope this season also."

    Spurs had already caught Bergwijn's eye last season when they got the better of PSV's rivals Ajax in the Champions League semi-finals.

    He added: "I loved to see that you beat Ajax! This a big club that plays good football and that's what I like.

    "You have to believe in yourself. I know what I can bring to this club and to this team, that's important. I will do what I can, and I know what I can do."

    Bergwijn thrived for PSV last season, scoring 14 Eredivisie goals and setting up another 12 as the team finished second to Ajax. He has added five goals and 10 assists from 16 league outings in 2019-20.

    Mourinho has already brought in Gedson Fernandes on loan with an option to buy this month and signed Giovani Lo Celso on a permanent deal on Tuesday after the sale of Christian Eriksen to Inter.

    Unbeaten in four games across all competitions, Spurs host Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.
