Klopp tells Liverpool to be like Chelsea

Klopp tells Liverpool to be like Chelsea

For now, the Reds are still third, 2 points ahead of Manchester City, and 6 ahead of Manchester United and Arsenal who have two games in hand, but the two points dropped would have seen Liverpool mathematically control third place. Not the result that the birthday boy would've been after but at least he can proud of his own performance as Bournemouth enjoyed little space down his flank.

At first it seemed Klopp might not fancy him but during the second half of last season it appeared he'd become the golden boy.

Bournemouth were a bit lucky at Anfield in the sense that both their goals were sloppy from a Liverpool perspective, but that will not bother them in the slightest, and nor should it.

What's more, only one Brazilian has played more games in Premier League history: Lucas Leiva, with 240.

There are some minor positives to take from the game; Divock Origi was pretty good and we didn't look completely useless without Sadio Mane.

Origi now has six goals from his last seven shots on target in the Premier League; a strike rate that would make even Europe's elite marksmen envious.

That seemed to calm Liverpool's jitters a little and they nearly went ahead early in the second half as Nathaniel Clyne cut in from the right past Francis and hit a 25-yard stinger that Boruc just got a touch to as it bounced out off the underside of the bar. The Brazilian made it two in two since the global break and is looking very sharp.

When Bournemouth introduced Ryan Fraser just after the hour, Jurgen Klopp's instant response was to bring on Joel Matip and switch to a back three.

"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".

Gini Wijnaldum: 6 - It was always going to be the ironic case that just a day after winning the March Player of the Month award he'd be the man who made the early mistake.

Wednesday's draw is the second time this season Liverpool succumbed to a late Bournemouth charge, after the 4-3 loss in the return leg, where they led 3-1 midway through the second half.

Liverpool have lost against Burnley, Bournemouth, Swansea City, Hull City and Leicester City this season, while they also dropped points at bottom club Sunderland.

It was weak defending by Klavan, but ultimately what Liverpool deserved for allowing Bournemouth to come at them for the final thirty minutes.

"Then it's a second ball after a set piece and that made me almost vomit".

Liverpool were hit with an academy transfer ban and ordered to pay £100,000 ($124,000, 117,000 euros) after admitting their part in the "tapping up" of a promising Stoke youngster. If only the Reds could do it the easy way.
