Liverpool held by Bournemouth as King crowns comeback

Benik Afobe gave Bournemouth the lead in the seventh minute before Philippe Coutinho equalised before the half-time break, with Divock Origi putting the hosts 2-1 up on the hour-mark.

However Jurgen Klopp's side were forced to share the points as Joshua King scrambled home the Cherries' second strike of the night in the 87th minute.

Jurgen Klopp admitted at a press conference on Tuesday that Mane's season could be over after the Senegal worldwide suffered a knee injury during Saturday's Merseyside derby win over Everton.

In a statement on Wednesday afternoon, the Premier League confirmed the sanctions against the Merseysiders in relation to the enticement of the 11-year-old to join the Liverpool youth team in September 2016.

Liverpool attempted to secure victory, but in exactly the way they have struggled to: by putting the emphasis on defence rather than continuing to play to their strengths. It has to be a mentality issue more than anything.

"We have to sit down and see what went wrong and what was good and move forward, because there are still a lot of points to play for".

Problem for @Lfc is Lovren & Matip always missing games, need to be tougher. But it's not more of a challenge with Daniel than with other players. Bournemouth had only two shots on goal, and Mignolet was beaten by both.

First up are the away games against Stoke and West Brom and Origi's physical presence as much as anything should be good in those two matches.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits his side's defending against Bournemouth nearly made him vomit - but he is likely to experience a few more days of sickness before the season is out.

To celebrate Coutinho's achievement, ESPN FC looks at all the Brazilians beneath the Liverpool man who have scored 10 or more goals in the Premier League.

Now sitting 13th, it has not been the worst season for Bournemouth by any stretch. They are continuing to grow as a team and as a club in England's top flight.

The Reds managed to kill the game in a defensive manner, and had they got over the finish line, Klopp would have been lauded for grinding out an ugly win.

"Stoke have now lost three on the spin and have scored only one goal in their past four matches, but I don't see Liverpool going there and winning". Bournemouth could not get out of their own half until that change was made.

"Liverpool do not have the ability to do that at the moment".

Klopp is a great manager, but he is only human. I think it will have to be a gradual improvement similar to when I was playing under Houllier and Benitez, when we built to a title challenge.
