Liverpool were left frustrated as a late goal denied them victory in a 2-2 draw with AFC Bournemouth at Anfield on Wednesday night.
The Cherries took the lead with just seven minutes elapsed, Benik Afobe profiting from Georginio Wijnaldum’s wayward back pass and sliding past Simon Mignolet.
But Philippe Coutinho drew the Reds level just prior to the break when he swept home from Roberto Firmino’s through ball, before Divock Origi headed them in front on 59 minutes.
However, there was to be late disappointment for Jürgen Klopp’s side as Josh King scrambled home an equaliser in the final moments to force a share of the spoils.
The key points…
- Afobe opened scoring early on after capitalising on Wijnaldum mistake.
- Coutinho levelled with neat finish from Firmino pass.
- Origi headed Reds ahead from Wijnaldum’s centre.
- King equalised at the death to grab a point for the Cherries.
The team news…
Liverpool made two changes to the side deployed against Everton on Saturday, with Origi and Ragnar Klavan coming in to replace the injured Sadio Mane and Joel Matip.
Meanwhile, Daniel Sturridge back in the matchday squad and named on the bench.
