Liverpool lose from Bournemouth with a goal and Salah misses a penalty

Liverpool’s English league team lost for zero to Bournemouth, after Mohamed Salah missed a penalty.

Manager Jurgen Klopp’s cubs were unable to confirm the superpower they had shown in the previous match against Manchester United, with Liverpool winning by seven full goals to zero.

Liverpool paid the price for a defensive foul that enabled Bournemouth striker Philip Billing to score 8 metres from goal, with a reel and a link from teammate Dango.

Virgil van Dyke almost scored a tight header but for Bournemouth’s defence’s intervention to get the ball off the line when the result was scoreless.

Neto blocked substitute Diego Jota’s attempt before the referee awarded Liverpool a penalty after Bournemouth’s Adam Smith handled the ball inside the box.

But Mohamed Salah, who last week became the team’s historic top scorer in the English league by scoring 129 goals, squandered the opportunity with a shot outside the goal frame, brought reassurance into the hearts of the Bournemouth fans.

Thanks to this victory, Bournemouth have risen to 17th in the English league standings, but Liverpool have not managed to climb to fourth for the first time this season, after a disappointing run so far.

After scoring seven goals in the previous game, Liverpool’s players were unable to score against the weakest defence in the English league.

The team faces a huge task in the Champions League when they travel to Spain to face Real Madrid, in order to rectify their loss by five goals to two in the first leg.

The team’s fortunes away from home remain weak, winning only three times in 13 English League games.
