Liverpool wins against Bournemouth has pushed the club 11 points clear in the Premier League. The club had a comfortable win at the Vitality Stadium where they beat Bournemouth 3-0.


Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain opened the scoring after a brilliant long-range pass from Jordan Henderson.

Naby Keita made it a 2-0 before the break. He slotted in with the outside of his foot after Salah set him up with a sublime backheel.

Keita then turned provider for Salah as Liverpool eased to victory.

The 3-0 win extends Liverpool’s club-record unbeaten run to 33 league games. The club has won 15 of 16 Premier League matches this season.

Reds journey to another win

There is an air of invincibility about Liverpool this season. Saturday’s victory at the Vitality was so routine.

The Reds played with a swagger and a dominance which greatly pleased their manager, Jurgen Klopp.

The club picked up their first clean sheet in 14 games and found new Premier League goal scorers in Oxlade-Chamberlain and Keita.

Headed into the match, Klopp said, “Being top at Christmas is not important.”

With a crucial Champions League game against Red Bull Salzburg on Tuesday, the fact that Liverpool has a commanding lead over their domestic rivals at this stage means he has been able to rotate players to keep them fresh.

Injuries for Bournemouth

Bournemouth’s center back, Ake pulled up clutching his hamstring after making a superb last-ditch tackle on Salah.

Jack Simpson replaced the Dutchman. However, his disappointment was clear as he trudged off the pitch comfortably escorted by Virgil van Dijk, a Netherlands teammate.


Bournemouth was already without eight first-team players because of injuries including the regular center-back Steve Cook.

“All round nearly perfect day.”

Bournemouth manager after the match said, “I don’t like to use injuries as an excuse. But there comes a time when you have to look at the situation and the teams we are playing. We lost another two players today. It is what it is.”

“The squad is stretched. It is there to cope with the injuries. But the difficult part for us is we are getting injuries but not getting players back.”

“The group’s mentality is strong but damaged in confidence. We can always do better.”

Jurgen Klopp said, “It was a professional performance. Well-controlled and scoring wonderful goals. We didn’t want to make it exciting again. So, we wanted to control Bournemouth.”

“The most used word in the dressing room at the moment is a clean sheet.”
