(Video) Liverpool denied early goal v Bournemouth by Jefferson Lerma heroics

Posted by

Liverpool were denied an early goal against Bournemouth by a heroic goalline clearance from Jefferson Lerma.

The Reds made a quick start at the Vitality Stadium as they sought to build upon last weekend’s 7-0 thumping of Manchester United.

Five minutes into proceedings on the south coast, the visitors had a corner which Trent Alexander-Arnold whipped into the Cherries’ penalty area.

Virgil van Dijk got his head on the ball with a goal-bound header, only for Lerma to get back on the goalline to divert it away in the nick of time for Bournemouth.
