Liverpool are aiming for another victory to maintain pressure in the race for the Premier League top four.

With Manchester United dropping two points yesterday against Everton and five other games tonight Liverpool whill hope to go though the 60 points barrier in the League.

The reds are without Sadio Mane - a player who may be missing for the rest of the season and the reds do not have a good record this year - with just one competitive win in the 9 games he hasn't been in the matchday squad.

Bournemouth came from 3-1 behind to beat the reds 4-3 earlier this season in one of only 5 LFC defeats to date.  Klopp's men will be keen to avoid a first 'double defeat' of the campaign.

As it happened...

Moving past last season's total?

Liverpool are currently on 59 points from 30 games.

They ended last season, after 38 games, on 60 points.

Clear progress in the Premier League - but will progress continue so the club can qualify for the Champions League?

Klopp has re-iterated his message from yesterday on Sadio Mane saying that he doesn't expect the winger to play another game for LFC this season.

Sub for Liverpool

Coutinho replaced by Matip - and Coutinho heads straight down the tunnel.

21:30 UK
Origi

Divock Origi's goal tonight means that  he is LFC's most lethal goalscorer this season.

That was his 6th Premier League goal with 4 more in other competitions.

A goal every 161 minutes played.

21:32 UK

Arsenal heading for a win and Spurs have just equalised against Swansea.

21:39 UK

Into the final 15 minutes - Spurs have turned the game around elsewhere - them and Arsenal both collecting 3 points.  

Can Liverpool now do the same?

2-1 up and despite the substitution no sign of taking their foot off the gas.

21:40 UK

Plenty of graft from the likes of Lucas and Origi - winning back the ball, holding up play.

21:47 UK

Not good news.

There's a scramble in Liverpool's area and Joshua King puts in the back of the net to make it 2-2.

21:50 UK
Added time

4 minute worth of it coming up.

21:59 UK
FULL TIME

Liverpool 2-2 Bournemouth

Disappointing two dropped points by Liverpool.  Mistake that allowed Bournemouth to take the lead and a bit of a silly equaliser to concede late on - especially as the reds had done the hard work of getting themselves in front.
