Carvalho jumps for joy & emotional Elliott – Best photos from Liverpool’s record 9-0 win

When Jurgen Klopp said it was “us against the rest of the world,” he really meant it. With Liverpool scoring NINE goals against Bournemouth for an emphatic first win.

There was no denying the importance of Saturday’s game and with a reaction demanded, that’s exactly what Liverpool delivered.

It came via the joint-biggest Premier League win, with six different goalscorers seeing the scoreboard read 9-0 by the end of the 90 minutes.

That’s some way to get your first three points of the season!

It all started with Luis Diaz after just three minutes – boy, was it good to be the ones scoring first for a change!
