How did Liverpool supporters react on Twitter to Reds squeezing past Bournemouth?
Liverpool won a nervy fixture at Anfield on Saturday squeezing past Bournemouth 2-1. The game saw Liverpool fall behind early 1-0 after Joe Gomez was pushed off the ball in defence by Callum Wilson. The Bournemouth striker then got to a cross before Gomez could clear it away to score past Adrian.
Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane were able to find the back of the net shortly thereafter giving Liverpool the lead at halftime. The Reds were unable to add to their lead in the second half and nearly allowed an equaliser from Ryan Fraser. His chip over Adrian was cleared off the line by James Milner to preserve the lead.
It was another iffy performance from Liverpool and resembled their come from behind win against West Ham in the league a few weeks ago.
Liverpool supporters were not short of things to say on Twitter after the match. The Reds are nine points away from the league title but face off with Atletico Madrid in their Champions League last 16 second leg on Wednesday night. So, how did Liverpool supporters react on Twitter to the Reds squeezing past Bournemouth?

I just find it crazy how Firmino has gone a YEAR without scoring a home goal for Liverpool and nobody has flinched. Martial scores & assists in an underperforming team, has one bad performance & journalists write detailed psychological reports about how he’s not good enough.

I don't know why Klopp is sticking with Gomez. Why he didn't start Matip? Against ATM, Gomez will pull Lfc down. Let Sterling tear him to pieces.

Pundits also weighed in on the game.
Salah has scored 70 goals in 100 games for @LFC .
Thats more than Suarez, Torres, Fowler, Owen and Crouch after 100
