The Reds stay second with 82 points while Newcastle stay 10th with 43 points.
Manchester City continued their winning streak with a trip to Elland Road, where they thumped Leeds 4-0.
Rodri was quick to put his team ahead after 13 minutes, which allowed City to stay 1-0 up at half time. Ake then doubled their lead in the 54th minute, which forced Leeds to pull up their socks.

Everton stunned everyone with a 1-0 over third-place Chelsea at Goodison Park.
