  1. Goodbye

    Wins for Manchester United and Liverpool, problems for West Brom and Bournemouth at the wrong end.

    Head here to read the reports

    We are back on Monday for Everton v Swansea.

    Until then.

  2. Defoe wants team unity

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Bournemouth

    Jermain Defoe

    Bournemouth striker Jermain Defoe tells Sky Sports: "It's the ups and downs of football but it's important that we move on. We have a great team spirit here so we have to use that to move forward.

    "Maybe if we had a goal at 2-1 it could've changed the game but maybe it's just that we were unlucky today.

    "The league's tough so it doesn't matter who you play, home or away, but it's important we stick together, keep working hard and pick up as many points as we can."

  3. Klopp calls for consistency

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Liverpool

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp tells Sky Sports: "I am really please about everything, the start was serious, we knew how they can play if you let them. We were disciplined, I like how we defended different situations, and our tactical discipline was good. You can’t score all the time, all the games are hard. It wasa fantastic first goal, and the third was world class.

    "We could have scored more, but we didn’t really give a lot away so it was well deserved and I enjoyed the performances."

    Hard leaving players out?

    "It’s not hard, I am not here to celebrate my squad. I I like them but against West Brom they didn’t hit the target. I don’t change my mind in three minutes, but we have to be consistently good because we are Liverpool. I am completely happy having these boys around, Adam Lallana came on and made a difference immediately, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain creates pressure. But still, can only line 11 up."

  4. A tough challenge ahead

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Bournemouth

    Eddie Howe

    Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe tells Sky Sports: "I think we have to look at ourselves before we look at the opposition today. We were flat, we never got going and we can't turn the ball over like we did today because it is very difficult to defend when the numbers are against us.

    "We are aware our style can leave us vulnerable and we left ourselves exposed at times. We didn't get our game going today and when you don't perform against the top teams, you're going to get punished so it was very disappointing for us today."

    On Bournemouth being in a relegation fight: "It's going to be a tough challenge but I back us to come back strong from this. We're in the same position as always with a relegation fight, first year, second year, so we've been here before. We know we have to come through a tough Christmas schedule and come back stronger next year."

  5. Deserved win

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Liverpool

    Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho tells Sky Sports: "It was a nice goal but most important thing is we are getting better and we won the game. We deserved it.

    "Everyone enjoys to play, the manager sometimes changes it but everyone gives their best and that’s good for Liverpool."

  6. Coutinho comes up with magic

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Liverpool

    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

    Liverpool forward Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain tells Sky Sports: "I think we competed from the start, we had to be at 100% and switched on in defence, and going forward we have the ability to open doors and score goals

    "The front four have been on fire, they are not bad. Everyone’s a quality player and the rest of us have to sneak our noses in there. Squad rotation is important, keeps us fresh.

    "I am trying my best, I think I have made strides and I keep improving. I am trying to do everything the manager wants, I thought I did OK today. We know Philippe Coutinho can come up with magic, and the boys at the back did well as well.

    "Phil’s been the most professional player all season, he always gives his all, and that’s all we can ask of him."

  7. Get Involved

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Graham: Odd team Liverpool. They either win by 3+ goals or don't win at all. A 1-0 win for them is rare.

    Joel: 4-0 scoreline without Sadio Mane. It's in the defence Liverpool need to fix. Virgil van Dijk is the answer.

    Daniel Andrews: Liverpool's attacking play is explosive which is tough to watch as a Man Utd fan.

  8. Liverpool were 'different class'

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Terry Butcher

    Ex-England captain on BBC Radio 5 live

    Jordan Henderson

    Liverpool have been phenomenal today and a different class in many respects.

    Bournemouth were unfortunate today in the fact that Liverpool outplayed them, and they have a tough schedule ahead of them so they will be in a relegation battle, there's no doubt about that, but I'm sure they have enough character to fight their way out of it.

  9. FULL-TIME

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Liverpool's thumping victory allows them to move back into the Premier League top four.

    Bournemouth staring the other way.

  10. CLOSE!

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Still time for a fifth, but striker Dominic Solanke is crowded out inside the Bournemouth box.

    The former Chelsea players then forces Asmir Begovic into a sprawling save and Adam Lallana heads over the rebound.

  11. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Into added time...

  12. CLOSE!

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Danny Ings

    Oh Danny, got to hit the target.

    Ings finds the ball at his feet eight yards out.

    His first touch in the match is to control the ball, his second is to hit the sidenetting.

    What an introduction that would have been.

    Danny Ings
  13. SUBSTITUTION

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Philippe Coutinho arches a low shot just wide of goal.

    That is his last contribution in the match as forgotten Liverpool striker Danny Ings enters the play.

  14. 'End this ASAP, ref'

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Terry Butcher

    Ex-England captain on BBC Radio 5 live

    I think Eddie Howe will be pleading with the referee to end this game as soon as possible to put Bournemouth out of their misery. It's been a comprehensive and professional performance from Liverpool tonight.

    It's horrible for Eddie Howe and Bournemouth but I hope they sharpen up, learn from this and avoid relegation.

  15. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Into the last five, this will be six without a win for Bournemouth, slipping on point above the drop zone.

    Lots of questions for manager Eddie Howe to answer.

  16. CLOSE!

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Everyone has scored for Liverpool today apart from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, he wants a piece of the pie.

    The former Arsenal man lets fly from the right edge of the box, but it lacks direction and whizzes wide of goal.

    Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
  17. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Left-back Andrew Robertson had to bide his time to get a start, but the Liverpool man has put in a very good performance today.

  18. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Into the last 10. More goals to come for Liverpool?

  19. Get Involved

    David Thomas: Liverpool’s attack is top draw but their defence is the opposite. Which is why they can’t challenge at the top.

    Chris Wex: Liverpool are flying, Burnley will have to settle for the Europa League at this rate.

  20. SUBSTITUTION

    Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

    Roberto Firmino the latest to be withdrawn, an excellent shift from the Brazilian.

    On comes Dominic Solanke, still looking for his first Liverpool goal.
