sensational goal from Luis Suarez was not enough to earn Liverpool three points as Newcastle left Anfield with a 1-1 draw.
The 25-year-old displayed stunning control to take a long ball onto his chest before rounding the goalkeeper and firing his 10th goal of the season.
That levelled an equally memorable volley from Yohan Cabaye.
Liverpool had enough chances to secure a victory, while Newcastle were reduced to 10 men in the closing stages when Fabricio Coloccini was dismissed for an ugly tackle on Suarez.
The game was preceded by a presentation by Gary McAllister to Steven Gerrard on the day of his 600th appearance for Liverpool - a figure reached by only nine men before him.
It is a sign of our No.8's standing in English football that even the Newcastle supporters stood to applaud, while Jamie Carragher thinks his friend can now rightly claim to be the greatest player in Liverpool's 120-year history.
