Damn, Liverpool. Back at it again with goal fests. After banging in a breathtaking 32 goals in the first nine games of now 12 match unbeaten run, the Reds had hit a bit of a cold spell in front of goal coming into Matchday 18 away to Bournemouth, managing only a solitary strike across back-to-back draws against Everton and West Brom.
After coming in for criticism for his rotation policy of the Fab Four during those last two disappointing results, Jürgen Klopp was effusive in his praise as they returned to their winning ways in smashing four past Bournemouth.
"I am really pleased about everything," Klopp gushed in his post-match interview. "The start was serious, we knew how they can play if you let them.
“We were disciplined, I like how we defended different situations, and our tactical discipline was good.
After all four of Philippe Coutinho, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané started in midweek against the Baggies, the Senegalese winger was rested again today with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain getting the start.
"You can't score all the time, all the games are hard,” the German manager added regarding the rotation. “It was a fantastic first goal [from Coutinho], and the third was world class.
“We could have scored more, but we didn't really give a lot away so it was well deserved and I enjoyed the performances."
