Back in Tyne: Five excellent encounters against Liverpool

Ahead of Newcastle United's Premier League visit of Liverpool on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 12.30pm BST), we take a look at some of the Magpies' memorable home victories over the Reds...

United trio down Reds (2010/11)

Newcastle enjoyed a 3-1 victory against Liverpool at St. James' Park during the 2010/11 season as Alan Pardew's reign as Magpies manager got off to a strong start.

Kevin Nolan opened the scoring after 15 minutes as Andy Carroll, who would join the Reds the following month for a then club record fee of £35 million, headed Joey Barton's free kick into the path of the United skipper.

Despite Dirk Kuyt equalising for the Reds early on in the second half, Barton regained United's lead with ten minutes remaining following a defensive mix-up from the away side before Carroll sealed the win in the final minute by firing home a terrific long-range drive in front of the Gallowgate End.

Cissé's brace beats 10-men Liverpool (2011/12)

Newcastle continued their electric form in the 2011-12 season with an excellent 2-0 triumph over Liverpool, managed by former United boss Kenny Dalglish.

Papiss Cissé sent United on their way to a third consecutive Premier League victory, scoring in each half against a Liverpool side featuring former United players Craig Bellamy, Andy Carroll and José Enrique along with future Magpies midfielder Jonjo Shelvey.

Playing on April Fools' Day, the St. James' Park crowd were treated to numerous comical efforts, with Carroll booked for diving while Reds goalkeeper Pepe Reina was sent off after leaning his head into James Perch, forcing Enrique to feature in goal for the final ten minutes after Liverpool had made three substitutes before the red card.

United achieved four consecutive clean sheets during a winning run of six matches as Newcastle finished the season strongly, sealing fifth place to ultimately qualify for the Europa League.

Andy, Andy Cole! (1993/94)

Andy Cole's 26-minute hat-trick secured a 3-0 victory against Liverpool in what proved to be an historic season for the prolific goalscorer.

Prior to their meeting with the Reds, managed by Graeme Souness, Cole was in tremendous goalscoring form, with the striker netting 12 times in as many matches.

The English forward opened the scoring with a brace inside the opening 15 minutes before sealing his third hat-trick since joining the Magpies in February. Cole's 41 goals in the 1993/94 season remains a club record as Kevin Keegan's men went on to finish third in an impressive debut season in the Premier League.

Gini grants three points for United (2015/16)

Newcastle's last win at St. James' Park against Liverpool was recorded back in December 2015 following a 2-0 win against Jurgen Klopp's Reds. 

It was a much-needed victory for United, who had shipped eight goals in their previous two matches against eventual title winners Leicester City and Crystal Palace respectively.

However, after a goalless first half, the game sprung to life as the Magpies took the lead through Martin Skrtel's own goal before Georginio Wijnaldum, who completed a move to Liverpool the following season, scored in stoppage time to record their third league win of the campaign.

Newcastle comeback beats Rafa's Reds (2006/07)

Newcastle produced a terrific fightback to defeat Liverpool, dampening Rafa Benítez's mood during the Reds' trip to Tyneside with a 2-1 win.

Craig Bellamy netted against his former club to send the away side into an early lead before Newcastle levelled the clash through Obafemi Martins' equaliser after Pepe Reina's goalkeeping mistake.

Nolberto Solano's composed penalty sent Newcastle into the lead after defender Steven Taylor was fouled inside the box before Glenn Roeder's side managed to hold on for maximum points, despite a late surge of attacking pressure from the visitors, to record their sixth home win in their last eight matches.
