The Reds will face the Magpies at Anfield tonight. Liverpool secured their first victory of the 2022-23 Premier League campaign against Bournemouth at home last weekend.
Klopp's team won 9-0. The German has said the following ahead of tonight's clash against Newcastle United.
"This wasn’t to play things down or to remove any enjoyment or pleasure that people were taking from such a positive result. It was just that for Liverpool victories are always necessary. The scoreline might add some gloss, but the result is everything.
"I say this because tonight a good outcome is needed once again. We do not get extra points for scoring nine goals or a head-start in our next fixture."

Anfield Watch Verdict
Klopp is absolutely spot on. Liverpool failed to secure three points in their opening three games of the Premier League campaign.
So, a big victory was needed and that was exactly what the Reds delivered. Liverpool need another strong win tonight to push themselves up the table.
The Reds currently sit in 12th-place. We are backing Klopp's team to beat Newcastle. The reality is, Liverpool are one of the best teams in the world.
The Magpies are not. We wish Klopp and his men all the best ahead of the game.
