The Cherries continued to push for an equaliser but Marc Pugh squandered a glorious chance in the 58th minute as weaved his way into the box, before slicing his effort horribly wide.
Substitute Lucas Leiva nearly ended his goal-scoring drought for the Reds, as his effort from distance sailed just wide of the upright in the 77th minute.

However, Liverpool managed to see off a late surge from the Cherries, as Jurgen Klopp secured his first win as the Reds manager.
