Jurgen Klopp praises Liverpool duo

Cody Gakpo, who has recently returned from injury, put Liverpool in front after 31 minutes at the Vitality Stadium.

Justin Kluivert then pulled Bournemouth back on level terms shortly after the hour-mark before Darwin Nunez scored the winner in the 70th minute.

Nunez has come in for a lot of criticism recently but Klopp was quick to praise the South American post-match:

“Darwin showed his class and put the game pretty much to bed for us,” Klopp said. “It was an unbelievable goal. There were five, six, seven bigger chances in the whole game.

“It was the goal we needed and he did it. Everyone worked extremely hard to win it and that’s what you want. Now we drive home. Long trip. But with going to the next round it feels much better.”

Klopp also reserved a word of praise for youngster, Jarell Quansah: “He was really good. In these circumstances, wow. So many difficult balls to judge as they were coming down. On the ball, he did really well.

“Caoimhin Kelleher obviously thought ‘give him the ball quite a lot, let’s see what we can do’. A top game from Jarell. Absolutely.”
