Commentary
  • 93'

    Full time! The referee brings an end to the match which sees Liverpool claim all three points! Final score: Bournemouth 0-3 Liverpool!

  • 91'

    Good save! It's tipped wide by Ramsdale! But that was the last moment of the match today.

  • 90'

    There will be a minimum of 2 minutes added time.

  • 86'

    Good chance! And it was for youngster Jones as the second-half sub volleys over from the edge of the box. If we were feeling harsh, we'd mention that he really should have kept that shot on target.

  • 86'

    Oxlade-Chamberlain has been replaced and given a well-deserved ovation from Liverpool's travelling support.

  • 83'

    Oxlade-Chamberlain shoots from 25 yards out, the ball loops out but Cook opts for a very odd back pass rather than clearing the danger and and Ramsdale gets himself into a real mess. He barely makes contact with the bouncing ball.

  • 79'

    It's offside! Milner crosses in for Alexander-Arnold towards the back post, with his header back across seen away by Simpson on the line. Salah tries to nod home the loose ball but Bournemouth make another clearance before the whistle goes for offside!

  • 76'

    Sub: Here Jones comes for his Premier League debut, with Robertson making way.

  • 71'

    What a run from Lerma! He drives down the left to and get to the ball but ends up heading it out of play, bundling over Keita and himself in the process.

  • 69'

    Good save from Ramsdale! Firmino drives down the right of the area and hits goalwards on the angle, but the goalkeeper is there to push the effort away.

  • 66'

    Bournemouth have the ball in the net, but it's ruled out for offside! It's a nice move from the hosts too as Lerma feeds Rico down the left, and his cross is turned home by Groeneveld but the offside flag is already raised. Correct decision.

  • 64'

    Sub: Wilson goes off and Gosling comes on in his place. That's the final change for the hosts with 25 minutes plus to play.

  • 63'

    Wilson is down looking to have pulled something as he tried to chase down a ball against Alexander-Arnold. Could be another hamstring and the medical team are on here.

  • 59'

    The away fans are singing for Origi! I don't think Bournemouth would appreciate that change, but to be fair to the home fans, they are also still supporting their side and singing the name of the manager,

  • 54'

    GOAL! SALAH! Simpson's attempted pass lands to Keita and he drives towards the area. He then slots it through for Salah at the near post and once again, Ramsdale is off his line but it doesn't work as Salah floats the ball into the far corner!

  • 52'

    Great cross from Milner, who picks up a loose pass in the middle before darting down the left. But his cross just evades the run of Firmino as Bournemouth ushers the ball behind.

  • 49'

    Alisson saves! Fraser needs two attempts to get a cross into the area - the first well blocked by Gomez - but his second goes straight into the upstretched arms of the Liverpool goalkeeper.

  • 48'

    WIDE! Liverpool cross a corner in which is headed on by Firmino and Salah gets to it at the back post, but the ball is already going wide as he pings it well wide with his touch!

  • 48'

    Half time! The referee brings an end to the half, with the score at the break: Bournemouth 0-2 Liverpool!

  • 47'

    Close! Huge block from Rico as Liverpool work their way wonderfully into the area, with Keita laying the ball off for Alexander-Arnold. He shoots with some real power but Rico chucks his body in the way to block.

  • 46'

    Bournemouth get us back under way for the second half!

  • 45'

    There will be a minimum of 3 minutes added time.

  • 44'

    GOAL! Keita makes it two! Salah plays a delightful back-heel inside the area to Keita who finishes into the left corner! Bournemouth 0-2 Liverpool!

  • 40'

    Sub: Lovren makes way for Alexander-Arnold in a tactical change from Jurgen Klopp.

  • 39'

    Yellow card: Gomaz is booked for bringing Solanke down on the counter.

  • 35'

    GOAL! Chamberlain opens the scoring! It's another wonderful long pass from Henderson that picks out the run of Oxlade-Chamberlain. Mepham cannot keep up with the midfielder's run as he flicks the ball past the oncoming Ramsdale with the tip of his foot.

  • 32'

    Ake is there again to see the ball away as Salah looked to attack quickly, seeing the ball away from in front of the forward.

  • 32'

    It looks like Ake has pulled his hamstring. Liverpool continue playing, as is their right, but they're soon encouraged to put it put of play as the defender hobbles around, ready for the next cross.

  • 29'

    Defending from Van Dijk! Solanke looks to be through on goal, but the Liverpool centre-back gets a leg in front of him and onto the ball to see it away.

  • 26'

    Another chance for Bournemouth! It's Fraser again who makes the final pass, clearing a large chunk of the Liverpool defence to find Groeneveld, but he puts his effort just past the post!

  • 25'

    More defending from Ake! Robertson plays the ball forward for Salah inside the area, who then tries to backheel it for Chamberlain, but Ake reads it well and puts the ball clear!

  • 25'

    Milner has a shot from just inside the area, but he flashes it wide of the far post!

  • 20'

    Chance for Bournemouth! Fraser slips Solanke in down the left and he dances towards the near post, eventually shooting, but the body of Lovren sees it smash into the side of the net.

  • 19'

    Some poor touches again from Liverpool. Henderson pings a cross to Robertson on the left of the area but his first touch of it sends it flying high into the stands.

  • 17'

    It's close! Lerma is through to burst down the right-wing. He picks out Wilson at the top corner, but he is soon surrounded by four white Liverpool bodies as they keep him at bay before the ball goes behind.

  • 15'

    Fifteen minutes played at the Vitality and it's been a rather slow start so far. As you would expect, Liverpool have seen the majority of the ball but Bournemouth are doing well in defense.

  • 13'

    An important touch from Francis as Firmino's pass bounces into the path of Chamberlain on the left of the box. But the Bournemouth captain sticks a leg out just before Chamberlain's touch to send it running behind.

  • 10'

    Biling needs to be doing better with that. He is the recipient of a poor pass from Lovren and he tries to set Wilson through, but his own pass is over-hit spectacularly as Alisson collects.

  • 8'

    It's the first real attack from Bournemouth as they win a corner with Van Dijk coming across to clear the ball out of play. It is delivered, but Liverpool manage to clear.

  • 7'

    Ramsdale saves! Gomez is set away down the left by a combination of a loose Lerma pass and a Milner slip, before picking out Salah inside the area. He strikes, but it is well held by the goalkeeper.

  • 6'

    Defending by Ake! Henderson dinks a pass down the field as Salah drives down the right, but the Bournemouth full-back gets there just ahead of the forward to clear.

  • 3'

    Billing tries to set Wilson on a break, but the striker is quickly flagged for offside. Bournemouth have struggled to get out of their own half so far as Liverpool dominate in the opening minutes.

  • 1'

    Kick-off! Liverpool get the match underway!
