Fraser helps Bournemouth rally past Liverpool

The introduction of Ryan Fraser as a second-half substitute turned this game entirely on its head, the youngster scoring and winning a penalty as Bournemouth came from behind to secure an amazing 4-3 win over Liverpool on Sunday.

The first half was as one-sided as they come, with the visitors utterly dominant and cantering to a 2-0 lead. The Reds took the lead after 20 minutes when Jordan Henderson chipped a lovely ball over the defence for Sadio Mane to run onto and poke past Artur Boruc. The advantage was doubled just two minutes later, with Divock Origi latching onto another fine Henderson pass, rounding Boruc and curling home from a tight angle.

The replacement of Josh King with Fraser quickly bore fruit as the striker was tripped inside the penalty area in the 56th minute by James Milner, Callum Wilson sending Loris Karius the wrong way from the spot. On 64 minutes, Liverpool re-established their two-goal advantage when Emre Can curled into the top corner from 18 yards, but it was demolished in the space of three minutes.
