Liverpool match Man United Premier League record with 9-0 win over Bournemouth as Southampton send cheeky tweet and Fulham fans cheer at Arsenal August 27, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer
Liverpool matched the record for the biggest ever Premier League win with a 9-0 destruction of Bournemouth kick-starting their season at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s side ran riot accelerating to a 5-0 half-time lead before adding four more in the second period to write their name in the history books.
Luis Diaz and Roberto Firmino both netted braces while further efforts from Harvey Elliott, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk and Fabio Carvalho completed the hammering.
The win puts the Reds level with Manchester United and Leicester who have both also recorded 9-0 scorelines, United doing so against Ipswich in 1995 and Southampton in 2021, while Leicester also did the same against the Saints in 2019.
The biggest shock of all though, was Mohamed Salah didn’t even record a goal or assist, infuriating Fantasy Football players across the globe.
But the Reds didn’t have any help from the goalkeeper on the way with talkSPORT’s Graham Beecroft saying it was quality that got the job done.
“The goalkeeper Mark Travers, bless his heart, has done nothing wrong all afternoon,” he said.
“He’s just been beaten by nine great goals, simple as that.”
Southampton were quick to aim some cheeky digs at Bournemouth posting several tweets referencing the fact they have twice lost 9-0 in the Premier League.
The first read: “DM us if you need to talk, Bournemouth.”
While another was a Spider-Man meme often used on Twitter with Southampton and Bournemouth badges pointing at each other.
Elsewhere, Fulham fans cheered as the goals went in at Anfield, despite the fact that they were preparing to see their side face Arsenal at the Emirates.
Supporters of the Cottagers now consider Cherries boss Scott Parker a foe as he walked out of their club before taking on his current role.
