Michael Owen slams Liverpool defence after Bournemouth defeat

Michael Owen blasts three players after Liverpool’s 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth.

Philip Billing netted the only goal for Bournemouth to seal the game against Jurgen Klopp’s men.

The Reds conceded their first goal in six Premier League games.

Even manager Jurgen Klopp admitted that Liverpool didn’t deserve to win the game and praised The Cherries for securing all three points.

Van Dijk was criticised for the goal but Michael Owen blasted the movement of other two defenders.

“Virgil van Dijk ends up going in where you think he shouldn’t,” Owen told Premier League Productions. “But then Konate can see the whole picture. Van Dijk has gone in with his man.

“I think it’s a 50-50, I think Konate tries to play offside when he can see everything in front of him and he needs to be sprinting back, as it is, van Dijk gets back in, then Billing and Alexander-Arnold at the back post.

“Trent Alexander-Arnold ends up coming to the back post, totally losing his man, and then it’s a simple finish in the end. I think Konate can do better (to stop the cross). It’s a rubbish goal to give away.”
