Papiss Cisse scored an injury-time winner in Newcastle's 2-1 win againt StokeLiverpool and Newcastle claimed big wins in the Premier League yesterday. At Anfield Liverpool defeated Tottenham 3-2.

The home side took the lead on 21 minutes, Luis Suarez deftly putting the ball past Hugo Lloris from Jose Enrique’s through-ball.

Spurs equalised just before half-time. Gareth Bale’s corner was headed past Brad Jones by Belgium centre-back Jan Vertonghen. Spurs took the lead on 53 minutes with Bale and Vertonghen involved again.

Bale’s corner was cleared by Jamie Carragher straight to the Belgium international who fired past Jones in the Liverpool goal. Tottenham looked in control until a calamitous error cost the away team an equaliser.

Kyle Walker played a poor ball back to his keeper Hugo Lloris, who fired the ball at Stewart Downing and the England winger kept his cool to fire ball through Vertonghen’s legs on the line and into the net.

Liverpool secured maximum points on 82 minutes, as Benoit Assou-Ekotto brought down Luis Suarez in the penalty area and Steven Gerrard scored with the resulting spot kick. The victory moved the Reds up to sixth place above city rivals Everton, who have a game in-hand on Brendan Rodgers men.

Elsewhere, Newcastle secured a massive 2-1 win over Stoke at St James Park.  The visitors took the lead on 67 minutes. Jonathan Walters was brought down by Cheick Tiote in the penalty area and the Ireland international stepped up to score from the resulting spot kick.

The home side were back on level terms just five minutes later. Moussa Sissoko was brought down on the edge of the box by Glenn Whelan and Yohan Cabaye curled the free-kick home superbly. The home side wasn’t finished there though and claimed all three points in injury-time.

Sylvain Marveaux found Papiss Cisse, who fired home from close-range. The victory moved Newcastle onto level points with Stoke and the Magpies are now only behind the Potters on goal difference.

Can Liverpool beat the odds and claim a top four position?
