Angry Klopp admits Bournemouth deserved to beat Liverpool



Jurgen Klopp has acknowledged Bournemouth deserved their 1-0 win over Liverpool after the Reds squandered a chance to climb into the Premier League top four.

Philip Billing’s first-half performance was enough to bring down the Merseyside side at Vitality Stadium with three points that lifted the Cherries out of the relegation zone.
Mohamed Salah, fresh off a brace in last Sunday’s 7-0 win over Manchester United that saw the Egypt international become Liverpool’s top scorer in the Premier League, missed a second-half penalty leaving the visitors heal their wounds.

Klopp believes this could have been the turning point of the game, although he felt Bournemouth, who scared Arsenal leaders last time out, were long overdue for a win.

“It’s been a long time since the last penalty we got in the league and it’s totally hypothetical, but if we score there it could turn the tide,” he told BT Sport. “It doesn’t improve the performance, but it could at least change the result. He scores goals, he scores a lot of goals but he missed the penalty, that’s life.

“It was clear from the first second we came here, Bournemouth are fighting to stay on their feet, a wonderful club, a wonderful city, they want to stay and they are doing very well.
“Results weren’t going in the right direction for the past few months but the performances seem different and that’s why they deserved the three points today, that’s all.”

Bournemouth’s Adam Smith, who saw the penalty decision handballed against him, felt vindicated by Salah’s failure and revealed that even some Liverpool players were confused by the penalty.

“Even some of the Liverpool lads said it was a bit difficult,” he said. “I was jumping, I couldn’t see the ball, I don’t know how I wanted to stop it. I’m jumping with my hands, I think my arms were down, so maybe it was some justice they missed.” It.”

Liverpool have lost consecutive Premier League games against bottom-of-table opponents (against Wolves and West Ham respectively) for the first time since December 2010-February 2011. Go down.
