Newcastle giving the hosts a real scare after seven minutes.
Atsu giving Jetro Willems the ball out on the left and he tricked inside Alexander-Arnold before hitting an unstoppable right foot effort past Adrian.
Liverpool gradually turned the screw but were helped by defensive mistakes from the visitors.
Krafth was at fault as Sadio Mane took advantage and put an excellent strike into the top corner.
Then Dubravka made a rare gift when he should have comfortably saved, the ball spinning into the path of Mane for his and Liverpool’s second.
Salah topped things off with a brilliant run and finish, Firmino getting a very nice assist.
