Former Man Utd Striker Denies Liverpool Victory

English Premier League 

Result: Liverpool 2-2 Bournemouth 

Date: 05 April 2017

Venue: Anfield

Liverpool dropped points at Anfield, after a former Manchester United striker struck late to earn Bournemouth a 2-2 draw on Wednesday evening.

The home side had a flying start to the match with Firmino coming close to grabbing the lead in the opening 30 seconds only to be denied by Artur Boruc.

However Bournemouth opened the scoring in the seventh minute. Benik Afobe latched onto a poor back pass by Georginio Wijnaldum and poked the ball beyond Simon Mignolet, 0-1.

The Reds were nervy at the back and very vulnerable to counter-attacks and pressing from the away side.

In the 25th minute Wijnaldum nearly made up for his error after he hit a terrific shot from just outside the box but Boruc was equally brilliant, producing a fine save.

Jurgen Klopp's charges eventually leveled matters in the 40th minute as Philippe Coutinho collected a pass from Firmino, before calmly slotting home from six-yards out, 1-1.

The match went into the interval logged at 1-1. It was a fair first-half for both teams and the second-half promised even more fireworks.

The Reds then took the lead after 59 minutes as Divock Origi was found lurking at the far post by a wonderful cross from Wijnaldum and the Belgian international headed home, 2-1.

In the 65th minute, Coutinho was substituted and in came Joel Matip as it seemed Jurgen Klopp was looking to close shop.

Bournemouth had the initiative to attack as the Reds slowed down on the attacks and only looked to capitalise on transitions.

The pressure paid off for the Cherries as former Man United striker, Joshua King made it 2-2 in the 87th minute. A long ball from the goalkeeper Artur fell into the path of King, who  got passed two defenders before unleashing a beautiful finish inside the box, 2-2.

The point sees Klopp's remain in third, after Manchester City slipped up at Chelsea.
