Goals may not have been a problem this evening but he loss of Sadio Mane, who may miss the rest of the season, is also particularly worrying.
"We grew into the game from there and that gave us confidence".
"We started the second half well and got 2-1 up but then Jurgen changed the system which I don't quite work out", he said on LFC TV after the game.
"I always thought that if we could continue to put pressure of them then we may well get the chance we needed and that's how it panned out at the end". It is not very positive when it is like this. I knew exactly what he meant....
The Liverpool manager is not blameless and has made a number of mistakes this season-not making more changes on Wednesday was baffling-but there is only so much he can do. The knee is swollen and we have to wait for the final assessment.More news: PCB may rope in Misbah for directorial role post retirement, hints Shaharyar
"We could have closed the game earlier but we didn't find the right solution, the right pass", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp told the BBC. Having played across the defence, as well as in midfield this season, his importance to Pep Guardiola is clear for all to see. Eight games to go. "It's not what we wanted but it could have been worse actually. A few players key players are not available at the moment but as long as we have 11 players to start and a few to bring on everything is fine". It was far too early to make such a substitution, especially only being one goal up.

Bournemouth were happy to sit back and absorb any Liverpool pressure after the goal, and the tempo started to lack from Klopp's team, although Gini Wijnaldum desperately tried to atone for his disgusting error with his play in the midfield. It was such a hard moment in January. Rather than wallow in pity about Mane, I'm now focusing on what we can achieve without him - even though TV and online keep reminding me that we haven't won a Premier League game without him this season.
"It is not about thinking 'How can we play ideal football?' now". If we are strong and perfectly organised in defence then Bournemouth can not get confidence in the game.
"We are usually really fearless in situations like this when we really try to win and that's what we did - we only tried to win". I remember from from the Euros and he looked sharp and strong. But I see a player with energy, pace, good movement, a hard shot and an ability to score goals with his head. "We have to get more experienced, for sure". "But they are not for this game because they are not here".
