Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane scored as Liverpool set a new Top-flight record by coming from behind to beat Bournemouth 2-1 in the Premier League at Anfield. Liverpool made history by winning 22 home League games in succession, despite Callum Wilson netting the controversial opener after a push on Joe Gomez in the build-up going unpunished by referee Paul Tierney and VAR check. Jurgen Klopp's side started sluggishly but reacted to that setback brilliantly, with Mane teeing up Salah to mark his 100 Premier League appearance for club with a goal in 25 minute. Mane capitalise on further shoddy Bournemouth defending to ensure Liverpool bounce back following their first League loss of the season to Watford last weekend, as well as the FA Cup defeat to Chelsea in midweek. Bournemouth took a surprise lead inside nine minutes, Gomez nudging off the ball by Wilson before the striker rounded off a neat move involving Philip Billing and Jefferson Lerma with a tap-in at the back post. It was almost two five minutes later when Nathan Ake's powerful header was unconvincingly palmed onto the crossbar by Adrian, who started in place of injured Alisson. However, Liverpool were back on level terms when Jack Simpson, sent on for injured Steve Cook, was caught on the ball by Mane and his pass to Salah was fired through the legs of Lerma and into the bottom-right corner. Virgil Van Dijk intercepted a pass from Lewis Cook and quickly feed Mane, who was played onside by Ake and slid a cool finish beyond Aaron Ramsdale on 33 minute. The tempo noticeably dipped after half-time and only brilliant goal-line clearance from James Milner, who started at leave-back with Andy Robertson resting as precaution, stopped Ryan Fraser from restoring parity after the hour mark. Mane rattled upright with a beautiful, curling effort from 25 yards and Roberto Firmino blazed a glorious chance over in added time, but two goals were enough for Liverpool to secure a landmark result. After seeing their chances of replicating Arsenal's unbeaten Premier League campaign and Manchester unite's famous treble from 1998-99 evaporate in the space of four days, Reds avoided suffering successive Top-flight defeats for the first time under Klopp. They move 25 points clear of Manchester City, who have played two games fewer, and mean they can still potentially clinch the title at home of defending Champions on April 5. In his milestone appearance, Salah scored his 70 Premier League goal for Liverpool. It was a pinpoint finish despite a shoddy pass from Mane and made him the first Reds player to manage at least 20 times in all competitions in three straight seasons since Michael Owen, who achieved the feat between 2000-01 and 2002-03. Despite going ahead early, Cherries folded following the loss of Steve Cook. Errors from Simpson and Ake enabled Liverpool to turn the game around and stop Eddie Howe's team from moving out of the relegation zone.

Ones to watch

Liverpool will seek a swift response to its first Premier League defeat of the season when it hosts Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday. Watford ended the Reds ' 44-game unbeaten League streak at Vicarage Road last time out, though Liverpool can still break the record for consecutive top-flight wins at Anfield in Week 29. Jurgen Klopps men have won their last 21 home games in the League, equalling the club record set in 1972 when the team was managed by club icon Bill Shankly. Invincible season may be no more, but that doesnt mean the leaders, who remain 22 points in front of Manchester City for the time being, have given up setting records just yet. Bournemouth travel to Merseyside sitting 18, but might move out of the relegation zone with a result at Anfield, something no team has managed in the League since Leicester City in January 2019. Cherries had record win in three games, but fought for a well deserved 2-2 draw at home to Chelsea in Week 28. Eddie Howes ' side has lost its last five away fixtures and is yet to record a win on the road in 2020, with trips to Manchester City, Manchester Unite, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton still to come. Bearing that in mind, it might be a case of damage control for Bournemouth, who will be away from Vitality Stadium until May. Liverpool has won its last five meetings with Bournemouth, preventing Howes ' team from scoring in each and winning those games by an aggregate of 17-0. Bournemouth's only point at Anfield came in the shape of a 2-2 draw in April 2017, but the odds of recreating that result on Saturday look slim.

Confirmed Liverpool line-up:

Jurgen Klopp has made a host of changes to his Liverpool lineup as he seeks to end a run of disappointing form with a win at home to Bournemouth in the Premier League. The Reds have suffered back-to-back defeats for the first time since the start of 2019, but today they come up against a side they have not lost to since 2016; and never at home. Bournemouth have won just one of their last 11 away games in the League, and have lost nine of those, with Eddie Howes ' side firmly in relegation battle. Liverpool are without a host of key players at this important stage of the season, starting at back with Alisson ruled out for at least the next two games. That see Adrian step in for his first League outing since December 4, and after a difficult night in the FA Cup in midweek, the Spaniard will be eager to produce a strong performance. His defence is comprised of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk and James Milner, with Fabinho at No. 6 role. Joining Fabinho in midfield are Gini Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, while Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino line up in attack. Salah make his first League outing for the Reds, and face side he has scored against in every previous meeting, hitting seven goals in his five outings against Bournemouth so far. With Alisson and Caoimhin Kelleher absent, Klopp has called upon Andy Lonergan as his backup goalkeeper, with the veteran joined by the likes of Naby Keita, Adam Lallana and Takumi Minamino on the bench. Andy Robertson is absent from the 18-man squad, with Neco Williams on the bench as leave-back missing out as a precaution. Bournemouth: Ramsdale; Stacey, SCook, Ake, Smith; Lerma, LCook, Billing; Fraser, Stanislas, CWilson


Bournemouth

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain returns to midfield THREE alongside Gini Wijnaldum and Fabinho with Sadio Mane up front with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino. As anticipated, Adrian starts in place of Alisson Becker who miss out with a hip injury. Robertson miss out as a precaution with the Reds entertaining Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night. Klopp told BT Sport: He would have started today but then he felt slightly. But it is all good, it will be fine for Wednesday. But not for today. So we didnt want to have him on the bench and see Robbo and think, Maybe we can bring you. It wouldnt make sense today. That reason and he will be fine. Victory for Liverpool against visiting Cherries put the Reds within nine points of their first League title for 30 years. Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Milner; Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Firmino, Mane.

What the managers said...

Liverpool take on Bournemouth on Wednesday night in the League Cup Fourth Round with a place in the quarter-finals prize for winners. Liverpool v Bournemouth 28 October 2015 19: 45pm Anfield League Cup Fourth Round Referee: Mike Jones After three straight draws, Jurgen Klopp goes in search of his first win as Reds boss when Liverpool host Bournemouth for the second time this campaign. The German take charge of his third Anfield fixture in six days against Cherries-game that will see his side play for the fourth time in just 11 days. Another difficult fixture awaits against Eddie Howes men, who prove tough opposition on their Anfield visit in August, and Klopps Reds will need a strong performance in order to book their place in the quarter-finals. Having not commenced battle since 1968, Reds have faced Cherries on three occasions in the last two years alone, with Wednesday set to be the fourth since January 2014. Liverpool have record wins in all three recent meetings, which have coincidentally come in three separate competitions. The first saw a 2-1 FA Cup win at Dean Court thanks to goals from Victor Moses and Daniel Sturridge, while the Reds also claimed 3-1 victory in their only previous League Cup meeting, courtesy of Lazar Markovic and Raheem Sterlings ' brace. The most recent clash was, of course, the narrow 1-0 League win in August which Reds were somewhat fortunate to claim three points through Christian Bentekes ' first Liverpool goal. Before the recent flurry of action clubs had met just four times in 41 years, and in seven meetings in total, from the first in 1927 to that two months ago, Bournemouth had never beaten Liverpool. Eddie Howes ' side will be looking to record an historic first on Wednesday night. After an impressive start to the season, Bournemouth arrive on Merseyside in a period of struggle. Cherries have won one of their last seven games, claiming only one point from their last four, and they enter Anfield off the back of successive 5-1 defeats against Man City and Tottenham. Howes men have conceded double the amount of goals Liverpool have in the Premier League as a result, but have also found the net on two more occasions than Reds so far. In contrast to the Reds, who made a real mess of overcoming League Two side Carlisle in the last round, Bournemouth have come through two rounds to reach this stage. Howes ' side saw off fellow League Two outfit Hartlepool with a 4-0 win in Round Two before disposing of League One Preston on penalties in Round three. They will hope their League Cup journey doesnt end on Wednesday against a Liverpool side who have drawn eight of their last nine matches in all competitions. First victory under Klopp on Wednesday night for the Reds is priced at 4 / 9, with Cherries coming in as rank outsiders at 6 / 1 and draw available at 7 / 2.
