Keane gave Liverpool the lead in the first-half but then had to go off early in the second with a groin injury leaving him doubtful for Sunday’s crucial trip to Chelsea.Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard created the chance with a superb pass through for Keane, who beat the Atletico offside trap before coolly slotting low past Leo Franco. What had initially looked like being a great night for the Reds then got worse when Simao Sabrosa, who has often been linked with a move to Anfield, fired home an equaliser seven minutes from time.Reina could do little about the goal that brought Atletico back on level terms.Simao was left in acres of space on the far side after Forlan had picked him out, he drilled a low left-footed shot past the diving Reina to level the scores up at 1-1. Liverpool could have silenced the home crowd in the last minute when substitute Ryan Babel sent a diving header just wide of the Atletico goal from close range.Highlights and goals below.

Ten-man Newcastle are hung on to get a draw 2-2 in the end at st james park coing back from 1-0 down and even taking the lead 2-1 which ireland changed to bring it back to 2-2 full hightlights to come in english. A late goal earned Manchester City the draw at St James’ Park after Newcastle fought from a goal and a man down to lead.Ireland finished following a Robinho through ball with four minutes left to level the score and deflate the newfound optimism of the home fans.
However they would have been over the moon with a draw after the first quarter of an hour when Habib Beye was controversially sent off for a foul on Robinho in the box.
The Brazilian tucked away the penalty and, with City already dominating the play, looked odds-on for a first victory in five league matches as Newcastle struggled to string passes together.However a second goal did not emerge and Newcastle fought back gradually as City took their foot off the pedal. They were rewarded when the ball broke to Shola Ameobi in the box just before half-time and he finished past the keeper
Joe Kinnear’s side took the lead in the second half when visiting captain Richard Dunne volleyed a stunning own-goal from a corner, but they could not hold out for the remaining 30 minutes.
