Pic Special: Newcastle 3 Liverpool 1
Alan Pardew could not have wished for a better start to life as Newcastle United's new manager. A 3-1 win over Liverpool surprised many, but was testiment to the spirit and quality of the players at St. James' Park.
From the moment Kevin Nolan gave United the lead, a win look likely and although Dirk Kuyt equalised shortly after half-time, The Magpies simply dug in again and were rewarded with a goal from the inspirational Joey Barton. And to put the icing on the cake, Andy Carroll finished from 25 yards with his tenth of the season.
Our photographers Ian Horrocks and Serena Taylor captured each United goal and much more besides, so why not take a look?
