At one stage in last night’s fixtures, Liverpool were level on points with second placed Tottenham Hotspur, with the Reds leading 2-1 at home against Bournemouth and Spurs trailing 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium. Then in the space of five odd second half minutes it all changed, with Joshua King scoring an equaliser for Bournemouth in the 87th minute.
At the Liberty, Alli equalised for Spurs in the 88th minute, and the Lilywhites scored two more times in stoppage time and all of a sudden, Spurs were five points clear of the Reds.
Another disappointing performance against a bottom half of the table league team from the Reds

What’s the difference between potentially winning 4-1 and losing 4-3? It could be a matter of millimetres, as shown in LFC’s clash against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

Liverpool are now four points behind Chelsea Continue reading

Divock Origi is Liverpool’s only fit striker remaining for tonight’s Capital One Cup clash against fellow Premier League side Bournemouth after Christian Benteke was ruled out due to injury.
Benteke scored a brilliant header in Liverpool’s 1-1 draw against Southampton over the weekend, but picked up a knee ligament strain in the dying stages of that game. He now joins Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge in the treatment room at Anfield
Liverpool are yet to win a game with Klopp in charge and will also be without James Milner and Jordan Henderson for the clash against the Cherries
Second straight 1-0 win for Liverpool in the new season, as Christian Benteke’s strike sees them down newbies Bournemouth Continue reading
