  2. FULL-TIME

    Liverpool 2-2 Bournemouth

    All over. Once again Liverpool fail to beat a bottom half team. Bournemouth's 1,500 travelling fans are celebrating wildly after another hard-earned point against one of the Premier League's big clubs.

    Four minutes of additional time.

  4. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Bournemouth

    Liverpool have only got themselves to blame for not securing victory after wasting several good chances. How much of a blow will this be to their Champions League hopes?

  5. King stuns Anfield

    Liverpool 2-2 Bournemouth

    Drama! Liverpool are four minutes from a priceless win when Joshua King wriggles free of two red shirts inside the penalty area to stab the ball home.

    Have Bournemouth rescued this?

    Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth

    Not long ago Liverpool were going level with second-placed Spurs but it's a nervy Anfield with 10 minutes to go. The Reds haven't managed this lead particularly well.

    Lucas has taken a blow to the face and looks like a battered and bruised boxer who is hanging on in the 11th round.

  8. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth are still in this. Liverpool have gone back into their shell and there are plenty of nails being chewed in the crowd. 

  9. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth

    Unbelievable scenes. Tottenham now lead Swansea 2-1 and are three points clear of Liverpool with a game in hand.

  10. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth

    Emre Can and Adam Smith square up after a silly shove from the Bournemouth man. It's playground stuff and James Milner enters the scene to usher his team-mate away.

  11. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth

    Tottenham have scored a late equaliser against Swansea. That means second-placed Spurs, who have a game in hand, are one point clear of Liverpool. 

  12. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth

    The Reds switch to a back three as Joel Matip comes on for goalscorer Philippe Coutinho. Is Klopp protecting Coutinho with Sadio Mane out injured?

  13. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth

    Liverpool are level on points with second-placed Tottenham as it stands. The Reds have played one game more than Spurs.

  14. Post update

    Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth

    Liverpool need to win games like this if they are to qualify for next season's Champions League. They have been much brighter second half while Bournemouth have sat back. Simon Mignolet has had nothing to do this half.

  15. From villain to hero

    Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth

    Liverpool are finally in front as Georginio Wijnaldum, whose error led to Bournemouth taking the lead, turns two defenders inside out before delivering an inch-perfect cross for Divock Origi to head home from point blank range in front of The Kop.

    What's this? Jurgen Klopp is in the ear of the fourth official as Liverpool miss out on a free-kick on the edge of the Bournemouth area.

  18. Post update

    Liverpool 1-1 Bournemouth

    Bournemouth's defence is under serious pressure as Liverpool pump a series of crosses into the penalty area. There are 10 blue shirts behind the ball. It's all hands to the pump from their point of view.

  19. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Liverpool 1-1 Bournemouth

    Nathaniel Clyne lets fly from 20-yards with the outside of his boot. It's a swirling effort which crashes against the bar and rebounds to safety.

    Replays show Artur Boruc got the faintest of touches. That's a super save by the Bournemouth keeper.

  20. Post update

    Liverpool 1-1 Bournemouth

    Liverpool are attacking The Kop this half where former Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is sat with the fans. I wonder what King Kenny thought of that first 45 minutes. Not too much, I suspect.
