Philippe Coutinho broke a record with his goal against Bournemouth


Liverpool endured another night of predictable frustration as they were held by Bournemouth at Anfield.

Josh King’s late equaliser cancelled out goals from Divock Origi and Philippe Coutinho, Benik Afobe having given the Cherries a shock lead after Georginio Wijnaldum’s terrible back pass.

It may yet turn out to be an important point in their pursuit of Champions League football, but Jurgen Klopp will undoubtedly be furious after once again watching his side undone by set pieces.

There was a special moment for Coutinho, however, whether he realised it or not.

According to Opta, the playmaker is now the highest-scoring Brazilian of all time in the Premier League.

The 24-year-old netted for the 29th time in a Liverpool league game to surpass former Middlesbrough man Juninho.

It was also his ninth goal of the season, a pretty impressive feat given that he was out for a significant amount of time before the New Year.

Ultimately, though, it all means little as Liverpool suffered another disappointment against a bottom-half club. It’s becoming all too familiar.
