The Reds continued their good recent form with three hard-earned points on the south coast, with goals from Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge proving key.

Firmino scored the opener with a tap-in, following an outrageous back-heel attempt from Sturridge, and the striker then headed home clinically on the stroke of half-time.

Bournemouth rallied in the second-half, enjoying plenty of the ball, but Josh King’s stoppage time effort was a case of too little too late.

It was a far cry from the drama of Thursday’s 4-3 win over Borussia Dortmund, but it was another good day at the office for Jurgen Klopp and his side.

The German made 10 changes to his starting eleven, with a debut for goalkeeper Danny Ward. Supporters gave their thoughts on the line-up:

Firmino and Sturridge scored just before the break, as fans expressed their joy at the interval:

Following the game, social media reflected on another win for Liverpool:

noremac on the forum:

Ward deserved a clean sheet. Shame. Did really well the young lad. Should’ve killed it earlier but meh.

Makeshift side. Multiple debutants. Couldn’t really fault any player. Allen MOTM.

theres always tomorrow on the forum:

Well done lads. Another mixed up side that did us proud. Shame about the injury time panic but Danny Ward did his best. Great first team debut from the young goalkeeper.

RMP on the forum:

Good win, impressive performance from Ward, Ojo and Allen. Good to see Firmino back on the score sheet along with Sturridge.

Colorado Red on the forum:

Joint MOTM Allen and Sturridge. Allen massive, really making his case to stay a Red. Sturridge provider for the 1st, scored the 2nd, and unlucky not to have a 2nd half hat trick.
