No Philippe Coutinho? No problem so far. Sadio Mane and Divock Origi are picking up the attacking slack created by the Brazilian’s absence early on in Liverpool’s away match against Bournemouth.
Mane opened scoring against the Cherries by using his dynamic pace to get in behind their back line and nick a shot past Artur Boruc.

Just two minutes later, Divock Origi again burned the Bournemouth back four with his speed. This time Boruc attempted to cut him off by rushing out but it was to no avail. The Belgium raced past the keeper and fired a brilliant finish into the net from a tight angle:
Neat finish from Divock Origi! Once Liverpool get going, they don't stop! #bouliv pic.twitter.com/Inm8q9iyUw— Twelve Yards Out (@12yardsoutblog) December 4, 2016
It’s been pure domination by the Reds as they look to keep pace with Chelsea at the top of the table. They beat Man City on Saturday and extended their lead, now Jurgen Klopp’s side must hang on to their two-goal lead to keep up.
