Liverpool Demolish Bournemouth 9-0 to Tie EPL Record for Biggest Victory | Watch Highlights

Liverpool equaled the record for the biggest Premier League win by thrashing Bournemouth 9-0 at Anfield on Saturday to register their first victory of the season at the fourth attempt.

Roberto Firmino and Luis Diaz both scored twice, with strikes from Harvey Elliott, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Fabio Carvalho, and a Chris Mepham own goal completing the scoring.

It is the fourth time in Premier League history a team has won by nine goals. Manchester United beat Ipswich 9-0 in 1995 and Southampton by the same score last year. Leicester also won 9-0 at Southampton in 2019.

The result was all the more remarkable given Liverpool, who just months ago came within two games of an unprecedented quadruple, had made their worst league start in a decade.

Fabinho returned to stiffen up Liverpool’s midfield in the wake of Monday’s 2-1 defeat away to Manchester United that left them five points back of reigning champions Manchester City.

Having struggled without the departed Sadio Mane in their first three games, Liverpool’s attack instantly clicked agaist Bournemouth.

The Reds produced a display of relentless, attacking football that resulted in a 9-0 victory that equalled the biggest victory in Premier League history… and left fans chanting for 10.

Asked by BBC Sport how the result ranked personally, Klopp pointed to the performance of his team.

“Nine-nil is a strange result, it will not happen often,” said the German.

“It just feels a very important result. It is not that we worked less in the last eight weeks, we were all in a really good mood, liked what we saw most of the time – but you don’t get it in the stadium.

“You have to turn a few other screws, and that is our job. When it turns out like today it is fantastic.”
