Jeff Stelling’s ‘goal-gasm’ over Newcastle equaliser rivals Gary Neville moment

Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling had fans remembering Gary Neville’s famous ‘goal-gasm’ after Newcastle levelled against Liverpool.

Joe Willock netted a stoppage time equaliser at Anfield with Newcastle having had a goal ruled out moments earlier after VAR ruled Callum Wilson had handballed.

And it led to bedlam in the Sky Sports Soccer Saturday studio with Stelling producing an incredible noise as he passed over to Sue Smith.

It had fans remembering Neville’s commentary as Fernando Torres scored for Chelsea against Barcelona at the Nou Camp nine years ago.

Like Stelling on Saturday, Neville produced a remarkable sound as the Spaniard rounded the goalkeeper and slotted home to send Chelsea to the Champions League final in 2012.

Mohamed Salah had put Liverpool ahead at Anfield with the reigning Premier League champions wasting a glut of chances throughout.

And Willock made them pay as he fired home following Dwight Gayle’s smart headed knockdown.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp said: “Very tough to take but there is nobody else to blame but ourselves.

“When you create chances like we created today and you don't use them then you keep the game open.

“That's what we did, but again, that's football – the oldest and most important football rule [is] you better use your chances when you have them because they will come back again.

“That's what we didn't do and that's why in the end Newcastle deserve a point because they scored a goal that was disallowed and as far as I remember it was the first time we were lucky with VAR, to be honest, but we didn't even take that present. We gave them another one, they used that, so it's a 1-1.

    “We cannot defend like they can attack; they can take the risk, we can't because of penalties and all these kind of things.”
