Liverpool are reportedly disappointed in the Premier League after they were left with no choice but to return to Merseyside from Newcastle after their 2-0 win at St James' Park on Saturday night. The Reds face heavy criticism after flying back to Liverpool just weeks after the Green Football Weekend, an initiative to combat climate change, ended.

The journey is around 175 miles and would take up to three hours by car or bus, but with Real Madrid next in the Champions League on Tuesday, Liverpool have no chance.

The Reds were not revealed to be traveling by plane until Trent Alexander-Arnold posted a selfie with Jordan Henderson on his Instagram account, which has since drawn public criticism on social media.

According to the Mirror, the Reds were not happy with the test as they felt the Premier League's decision to schedule a 17:30 kick-off at Newcastle left them no choice.

After losing two Champions League finals and a home and away game against Real Madrid in 2020/21, Liverpool need to be at the top of their game for the big night.

Flight-tracking websites show the Reds left Newcastle Airport at 21:37 on a chartered flight operated by 2Excel Aviation.

They returned to Liverpool at 10.10pm to ensure they're swiftly reunited with their families at home on Merseyside.
