HT: Liverpool 1 - 0 Bournemouth! 46'
One minute to be added on in this first-half. 45'
A fired high pass from midfield is headed at goal by a diving Sadio Mane but his effort is wide of the post.
Salah's first touch lets him down and another chance goes begging for the Egyptian. Will he get on the scoresheet?
The home side have had 65% possession so far and are dominating the chances too but are lacking some clinicality up top.
Liverpool have a corner after Oxlade-Chamberlain's long-range shot takes a deflection. It leads to nothing.
Ake does well to head away a dangerous cross by Mane, with Salah poaching just behind.
Salah not quite firing on all cylinders today. He's slotted through on goal but can't chip the ball on target, instead blasting it over the crossbar.
Robertson gets on the end of a lofting ball, heading it back across goal but it's just a bit too high for his team-mates to finish off.
Salah works the space to get a long-range shot on goal but it is high of the target.
The visitors have the ball in the back of the net but it won't count as Fraser received a pass in an offside position in the build-up.
Bournemouth have their first corner of the match. However, a push on Mane's back gives away a free-kick and a chance to end the Liverpool dominace.
Salah receives the ball from the right wing just outside the box and after some nifty skill, breaks free from the Bournemouth defence to have a shot on goal. It's saved well by Begovic.
SAVE!! It's Trent Alexander-Arnold that has a go and it's a good curling effort which forces a decent save from Begovic.
Ake goes into the book for an arm across Oxlade-Chamberlain. Liverpool have a central free-kick 25 yards out.
Mane is rightly called offside by the officials. Shame as he was through on goal there.
Liverpool have a free-kick 30 yards out on the right wing after a Bournemouth player handled the ball. It's dealt with well by the visitors.
Ibe tries his luck with a long-range effort but it flies over the crossbar.
GOAL! LIVERPOOL!! I spoke too soon. Henderson finds Mane in the box with an inch-perfect pass which the forward heads at goal. Begovic is there to save it but Mane fires home the rebound. 1-0!
Liverpool have the first corner of the match but it leads to nothing.
Lively opening five minutes at Anfield. Both teams want the ball and are looking to attack at every opportunity.
CHANCE! A great skipping pass from Trent Alexander-Arnold puts Salah one-on-one with the goalkeeper but his shot is inches wide of the post!!
Bournemouth block a dangerous through ball to Salah which would have seen the Egyptian free on goal. Good work.
Liverpool get the game underway!
