Liverpool was beaten for only the second time in the Premier League this season, as a Bournemouth comeback inflicted a 4-3 defeat on Sunday afternoon at Vitality Stadium.

First-half strikes from Sadio Mane and Divock Origi gave Jurgen Klopp’s side control of the game at the break, but the hosts fought back after the interval.
