Liverpool dropped two points on Wednesday night in their race for a Champions League spot.

With the game at 2-1, Liverpool conceded an 87th-minute equaliser to draw 2-2 with Bournemouth, which meant the gap to fifth-placed Arsenal was cut to six points with the Gunners having two matches in hand.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had told his team to be like Chelsea and defend better.

“Probably (if it was) Chelsea, for example, the opponent would not have the ball three times in the last 20 minutes I think,” said Klopp when reflecting on how Bournemouth scored late in the game to draw 2-2. “Yes, we don’t have this experience. Probably you need things like last night to get more experience than this, even though (the result) was not that good.

“On the other hand, we’ve probably still scored the most goals in the Premier League so far (66 – five more than Arsenal), so it’s part of the game that we try to create moments all the time.

“We have to get more experience in this, for sure.”
