Newcastle United’s 1-0 defeat to Liverpool at St James’ Park saw the Reds move top of the league table for a few hours before Manchester City regained the leading position by seeing off Leeds United at Elland Road.
It also saw the Magpies drop one place to tenth as Brighton leapfrogged them after an impressive win away to Wolves.
Speaking after the match, United boss Eddie Howe said: “I don’t think we quite got going.
“I thought we made a bright start to the game, but we’re slightly disappointed with our own performance.
“Individually, I don’t think we hit our top levels, which meant collectively we didn’t quite hit the levels we have recently.
“We probably didn’t quite have that sustained pressure we were looking for.
“The second half was better without that big chance ever really coming.
“There were one or two bright sparks, but it’s slightly disappointing compared to our previous levels. I’ve seen progress from where we have been, but, on the other side, there’s a lot of work to do.”
Away from the action on the pitch there is still plenty going on behind the scenes as clubs continue to prepare for the summer transfer window.
