Liverpool: Reds records biggest ever premier league win

Liverpool got their first win of the season in style, recording the Reds’ biggest ever Premier League win and equaling the competition’s biggest ever win.

After the worst league start since 2012, the arrival of newly promoted Bournemouth at Anfield could not have been better timed.

There was just one change to the team that started the defeat to Man United, with Fabinho coming in for James Milner in midfield.

Liverpool began with the intensity that was missing at Old Trafford, flying into a 2-0 lead inside six minutes.

The opener arrived when Luis Diaz headed in Roberto Firmino‘s cross in the third minute, then Harvey Elliott doubled the lead with a lovely curled strike from the edge of the box.

Liverpool looked fluid and it should have been three when some lovely play from Elliott, linking with Fabinho and then Firmino set up Salah for an open goal five yards out but his stretched leg couldn’t put the ball in.

It was, though, 3-0 before the half-hour, when Trent Alexander-Arnold was given room on the edge of the box and he unleashed a rocket of a strike from 20 yards into the top corner.

And it didn’t take long for the fourth to arrive, Firmino finishing from Salah’s deflected cross three minutes later – Bobby’s first Anfield league goal since December 2020!

It was 5-0 before the break, Van Dijk heading in Robertson’s corner.

The last time Liverpool led 5-0 at half time in a league game was in 1958/59 season!
