It was far from a classic, just like at Stoke on the opening weekend, but the Reds got the job done against Eddie Howe’s impressive Bournemouth outfit.

Christian Benteke’s controversial first-half goal, in which Philippe Coutinho interfered with play in an offside position, proved to be the difference between the two sides on the Belgian’s home debut.

Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez were again terrific at full-back, while James Milner‘s magnificent work-rate was eye-catching from start to finish.

Six points from six is the perfect start for the Reds, and while performances must improve, it has given them a much-needed boost after the disappointment of last season.

Here is how social media reacted to the game:

‘shankly96 on the forum’:

Hopefully Henderson’s injury isn’t serious. The gaps in midfield once he went off were awful and we became useless without him. I like Can but he didn’t impose himself on the game like Hendo did.

‘rab’ on the forum:

A step up from the Stoke game. Thought we were decent without being spectacular but there’s very few chances being created which is a concern. More to come for sure but early doors it’s about points on the board.

‘Walter Sobchak’ on the forum:

Clyne or Benteke MOM for me. Milner worked tirelessly and did a good job. Coutinho is just brilliant, but in all honesty, doesn’t have enough quality around him. Lovren did relatively ok.
