Magpies see off hapless Liverpool

Published Add your comment

Papiss Cisse showed £35million man Andy Carroll how to do it as Newcastle increased their advantage over Liverpool to 11 points with a 2-0 win at St James' Park.

The Senegal international struck with a 19th-minute header and then added a second from close range 14 minutes after the break to ease the Magpies 11 points clear of the Reds, who had goalkeeper Pepe Reina sent off for headbutting James Perch, in the race for sixth place in the Barclays Premier League.

Carroll, who was booked for diving after just nine minutes, headed over from six yards before the break on an afternoon when the visitors were unable to make the most of the possession they enjoyed.
