Alan Shearer has stated that he felt Newcastle United deserved to lose to Liverpool describing the Reds, as ‘the better side.’

Speaking to Setanta Sports, the Magpies gaffer said: “I thought the first goal was offside but nevertheless that wouldn`t have changed the outcome of the game. We were well beaten today by the better side. Now we move on to better things hopefully.

“It was always going to come down to our two home games, and they will decide our fate I believe.

“We were always up against it today, they`re a good side – even with Fernando Torres. 3-0, it could have been a few more, but we`ll regroup for next week.

“Time is running out, but we`ve still got two important home games. It`s a huge game against Middlesbrough. Whoever loses that will find it very difficult to come back. We know the stakes, we`ll be ready for it.”
