Lets hop into the LFC Transfer Room time machine and take a look at what happened on this day two years ago. Liverpool played Bournemouth at Anfield and won 3-0.
Sky Sports called the display an “attacking masterclass” as the victory saw Liverpool return to top of the table. The victory saw Liverpool take all three points and move ahead of Manchester City in the Premier League table.
Liverpool’s three goals came from three separate players. The first goal came in the 24th minute as Sadio Mane scored and made it four matches in a row with a goal.
Just 10 short minutes after Mane’s opening goal, Georginio Wijnaldum doubled Liverpool’s lead with a beautiful lob over Artur Boruc.
Wijnaldum’s wonderful goal ensured that Liverpool would take a 2-0 into halftime. Just minutes after the start of the second half, Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita worked together to set up Mohamed Salah for his 20th goal of the season.
The move took Jurgen Klopp aback as the German manager hailed the linkup play between Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino as “world class”.
Liverpool Top of the League
This victory came after Manchester City moved to the top of the Premier League table on goal difference. Much like now, the 2018/19 season had its fair share of injuries. This match saw Trent Alexander-Arnold return to the first team after an extended spell on the sideline.
After a brilliant performance and a goal to go with it, Georginio Wijnaldum was named Man of the Match.
“We have high expectations and today we won in an impressive manner – we had some outstanding performances on the pitch. Goal number three was world class.”Jurgen Klopp on the performance
The boss went on to say that this was a nice recovery after Liverpool’s previous two matches.
“We were not happy with the performances from the previous two games and struggled a bit with set-pieces. There were a lot of things we had to improve.”Jurgen Klopp speaking on the team’s performacnes
In present times, Liverpool are going through a very rough patch of form. The boys will look to regain their form against Leicester City.
