One Goal less, Same 3 points

Liverpool succeeded in overcoming Bournemouth, today, 3-0 at Vitality Stadium in the 16th round of the English Premier League.

Liverpool's goals came from Alex Chamberlain in the 36th minute, Naby Keita 44, and Mohamed Salah 54.

With this result, Liverpool raised its score to 46 points at the top of the Premier League, while Bournemouth fell to 15th place with 16 points.

What you need to learn about this game:

Severe blow for the Reds, before confronting Austrian Red Bull Salzburg, next Tuesday, in the sixth round of the group stage of the Champions League, The Croatian defender Dejan Lovren, left the pitch injured in the 40th minute, and was replaced by Alexander Arnold.

With this, Liverpool will face a defensive crisis, especially since Joel Matip, too, is still not ready to play.

Salah played his 100th game in the premier league against bournemouth, and scored his 63 goal in the competition (2 goals from his time with Chelsea).

Only 3 players scored more than this in their first 100 appearences (Alan Shearer 79, Ruud van Nistelrooy 68, Sergio Aguero 64).

A free Kick late in the game, shot perfectly by Jordan Henderson, could have made the 4th goal for the Reds, and therefor the 3rd consecutive year that Liverpool beat Brighton at Vitality Stadium by 4-0.

Despite the one goal less than the two last visits, liverpool can make it the 3rd season in a row to beat brighton at Anfield 3-0, when they face again later in the competition, in front of the Kop.
