Divock Origi leaps high to nod home Liverpool's second goal
Divock Origi leaps high to nod home Liverpool's second goal

Liverpool let a lead slip away late on to draw 2-2 against Bournemouth and miss the chance to strengthen their grip on third place.

Goals from Philippe Coutinho, equalling Juninho's tally of 29 to become the joint top-scoring Brazilian in the Premier League, and Divock Origi appeared to have put the hosts on course to open up a four-point gap on fourth-placed Manchester City.

However, Josh King struck in the 87th minute, to follow Benik Afobe's early opener, as Bournemouth earned a point.

STAR MAN

Origi. The Belgian was promoted to the starting line-up in Sadio Mane's absence and was an effective spearhead of the Reds' attack. He laid the ball off for Roberto Firmino to set up Liverpool's first-half equaliser before timing his run to perfection to nod in the winner from close range.
