Liverpool were not exactly spectacular against Bournemouth, but even so, they had all three points in their hands up until three minutes from time. Then… shock.
Joshua King found the back of the net for the visitors, and just like that, two golden points for Liverpool were lost, leaving Jurgen Klopp in disbelief.
Talking to reporters after the final whistle at Anfield, the German manager found some… too honest words to describe his frustration.
Their second goal from a set-piece nearly made me vomit
the Liverpool manager said, acknowledging that despite their overall good season they still have a lot to learn and work on.
The start was not good either. We were ‘late in the mind’. Simon [Mignolet] was dribbling, then Ragnar Klavan’s [poor] pass… You could feel the nervousness in stadium. We have to learn a lot. We have to get more experienced, for sure
Klopp said. As for Philippe Coutinho and substituting him in the second half;
It is no joy when you have to change your best player. Coutinho felt sick at half-time and we had to change him. He feels better now
the German manager told reporters, assuring Liverpool fans that Coutinho’s problem is nothing serious.
