Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce felt the full force of a fans´ backlash as his side´s 3-0 defeat to Liverpool was their second humbling on home turf in successive matches.

Goals from Steven Gerrard, who rammed the taunts of the home fans back down their throats following England´s midweek disaster with a fearsome 28th-minute free-kick, Dirk Kuyt and substitute Ryan Babel were more than enough as the Magpies tamely surrendered.

Allardyce said: "I have never quite found myself in this predicament before to be honest with you. But I have dealt with some difficult situations and this one is a good challenge."
