However, should they lose, City could retain their title by beating Leicester at home on Monday.

Klopp said: "Credit to Newcastle, that was - wow!"

The Reds were 4-0 winners against Newcastle on Boxing Day in the reverse fixture at Anfield, while Liverpool FC haven't lost a Premier League fixture to the Magpies since 2015.

So Liverpool fight on and they have taken the race to the very last game of the season.

Liverpool have 94 points and Manchester City 92 but Pep Guardiola's City have two games remaining, including Monday's home match with Leicester City.

As for the Champions League, overturning a 3-0 deficit against Barcelona is a mountain to climb for anybody, but after seeing Salah carried off following a blow to head after a collision with Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, Liverpool may have to do it without their Egyptian star.

Salah appeared to be in tears at one point and covered his face with his hands as he was taken off the field.

The coach explained that his player was able to watch the end to the game, which Liverpool won 3-2, from inside the dressing room.

Speaking after game, Klopp said: "We have to see, he got a proper knock on the head".

Liverpool FC are in second place in the Premier League table and a point adrift of Manchester City with two games left to play in the current campaign.

The defeat kept Spurs in third place and gave their three top-four rivals - Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United - renewed hope of catching Mauricio Pochettino's team.

Despite its courage and grit, there was an element of luck to Liverpool's latest win.

Virgil van Dijk opened the scoring from a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner, before Christian Atsu equalised and the right-back set up another for Salah to make it 2-1 at half-time.

The referee could have given a penalty and red card, but instead awarded Newcastle the goal.

"You can say whatever you want about me - they don't play often enough, Shaqiri not often enough".

Origi is proving to be a lucky charm, too.

Origi also scored against Everton in the 96th minute back in December to earn his club a 1-0 victory.

"There's a lot of emotion", Origi said about the to-and-fro title race.

The result confirmed Cardiff's relegation after one season for the second time in five years.

Fulham and Huddersfield have already been demoted.

It couldn't really have gone any worse for Tottenham at Vitality Stadium.

Origi, who scored a crucial stoppage-time victor against Everton last December, ensured that they will fight on for the title by heading in Xherdan Shaqiri's 86th-minute free kick at St James' Park.
