Liverpool crashed back down to earth from the Merseyside Derby high early on against Bournemouth, thanks to a Gini Wijnaldum mistake.
The Dutchman, who was awarded our Player of the Month award yesterday, ridiculously passed the ball straight to Benik Afobe who was waiting in front of Simon Mignolet. The Belgian tried to come out but wasn’t fast enough and the forward had an easy finish…
It’ll be a long game now for Liverpool, who’d very much started on top against the visiting Cherries.
It’s crucial the crowd remains behind the team though. Negativity won’t help right now.
Almost as good as his through-ball for Sadio Mane the other day against Arsenal…

Wijnaldum has just gifted Bournemouth the lead. Liverpool started well until Can played a loose pass which led to a few more errors

I like wijnaldum, but you can’t give teams like this a goal lead. Bus parked now, with no mane. Going to be tough #lfc

Blame WIjnaldum all you want, Migs doesn’t shit himself in possession and actually leave his line when we have the ball, we’re not 1-0 down.

Can’t wait for the day we buy a proper B2B and Wijnaldum fucks off
