BBC Sport - Liverpool 1-0 Bournemouth: Christian Benteke was excellent - Brendan Rodgers

Benteke was excellent - Rodgers

Manager Brendan Rodgers says Christian Benteke was "excellent" after the striker scored his first Liverpool goal in a 1-0 win against Bournemouth at Anfield.

The visitors thought they had taken the lead but Tommy Elphick's header was ruled out for a foul.

Benteke then turned in Jordan Henderson's cross from close range despite replays showing Philippe Coutinho was offside.

The Reds' striker's goal was his 50th in English club football across all competitions, and the Belgian has now scored 12 goals in his last 13 Premier League appearances.
