“Champions would have won that game” – Liverpool fans react to dramatic 4-3 defeat at Bournemouth

4 December 2016

Liverpool’s 15 match unbeaten run ended in dramatic fashion, losing 4-3 after being 2-0 and 3-1 up against Bournemouth.


Adam Lallana returned to the squad but wasn’t named in the starting XI as Joel Matip also missed out through injury.

Divock Origi retained his place in the side after scoring against Sunderland and Leeds United And scored a sensational goal in the first half.

Sadio Mane broke the deadlock after just 20 minutes following a period of Liverpool domination.

Origi scored just minutes later but Bournemouth got themselves back into the game when Callum Wilson netted from the penalty spot early in the second half.

Liverpool bounced back through Emre Can but a late goal from Bournemouth‘s Nathan Ake sealed a hugely disappointing 4-3 loss for Jurgen Klopp‘s side.

Here are some of the reactions from Liverpool fans throughout the game:

Matip’s injury came as a shock and fans were a little anxious to see Lucas lineup in defence – thoughts that later came to the fore as the defence crumbled late on:

Mane opened the scoring after 20 minutes and Origi netted another stunning goal just moments later and Liverpool looked in control:
