With videosAfter two draws (against Crystal Palace and Fulham) and a painful defeat against Manchester United (2-1), Liverpool have taken revenge for the weak start to the season. Partly due to a goal from Virgil van Dijk, the Bournemouth of former Feyenoord player Marcos Senesi was sent from the cupboard to the wall for ninety minutes. And back. It was 9-0 at Anfield. Ajax, next month’s opponent of the Reds in the Champions League, has been warned.
9-0 equals the record in the Premier League. Last year Manchester United also won 9-0, against Southampton. In 2019 Leicester City were too strong for Southampton with the same numbers and in 1995 it was 9-0 at Manchester United – Ipswich Town.
Liverpool led 2-0 after just 6 minutes, thanks to goals from Luis Díaz and Harvey Elliott. Trent Alexander-Arnold, Roberto Firmino (2x), Fabio Carvalho and again Díaz were accurate for the home team. Van Dijk also scored at Anfield. Just before half-time, the captain of Orange took the 5-0 for his account by heading from a corner from Andrew Robertson. Chris Mepham worked the ball into his own goal on behalf of the Senesi team, who played the entire game.

Brighton & Hove Albion, which defeated Leeds United 1-0, has as many points as leader City after four matches: 10. Arsenal, which will face Fulham on Saturday evening, is the only club that has not yet suffered a loss of points and can beat City and Brighton so over.
