LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND  -- Raheem Sterling and Joe Allen scored in each half to give Liverpool a 2-0 win over Newcastle in the Premier League on Monday, keeping the club four points from the last Champions League place.

Sterling opened the scoring in the ninth minute when he downed a long cross on the left edge of the area and dribbled past two defenders before slotting a neat finish inside the far post.

Newcastle had a penalty claim waved off near the break when Dejan Lovren tripped Ayoze Perez in the area during a good spell for the visitors, but Liverpool dominated after the interval and Allen volleyed in the second in the 70th.

Liverpool is four points behind fourth-place Manchester City while Newcastle is in 13th place, still nine points clear of the relegation zone.
