Liverpool lost ground on league leaders Chelsea after Bournemouth came from 3-1 down to beat the Reds 4-3 at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side almost netted a fourth goal themselves on 74 minutes, only for the goal-line technology to decide on one of the closest calls we’ve ever seen.

Goals from Sadio Mané and Divock Origi had put the visitors 2-0 up within 22 minutes. However, after the break Callum Wilson’s penalty got the Cherries back into the game.

Emre Can then restored the Reds’ two-goal advantage just after the hour-mark before an inswinging James Milner corner looked to have deceived Artur Boruc. However, the subsequent goal-line replay showed that the ball had failed to fully cross the line by just millimetres…

That’s some precision (as long as it was right!).

After that close-shave, Eddie Howe’s side would go on pull off a magnificent comeback, with sub Ryan Fraser and then defender Steve Cook levelling the scores.

Then, with the game well into injury-time, Liverpool ‘keeper Loris Karius spilled another effort from Cook, leaving Chelsea loanee Nathan Ake to fire into an empty net.

The win sees Bournemouth go 10th while Klopp and co. now find themselves in third, four points off the top of the table.
