There will be questions about Jurgen Klopp's decision to take off Coutinho and go with a back three late in the second half.
And the manager said that he felt ill himself after Joshua King scored for Bournemouth with three minutes to go at Anfield. "We didn't, we left it open and then a second ball after a set piece which made me actually nearly vomit. that's of course not nice".
"We have to sit down and see what went wrong and what was good and move forward, because there are still a lot of points to play for".
"Usually you close the game in one moment, we didn't, we left it open", Klopp said in his post-match press conference.
"We have to recover". Not what you wanted, but it could have been worse.
"We lost already games like this this season and we didn't so maybe that is a positive".
With Stoke, West Brom, Crystal Palace and Watford their next four matches, Klopp and his players can expect to have their set-piece frailties tested to the maximum.
Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann exhausted of transfer speculation
The Atletico Madrid forward has been linked with a summer move to Old Trafford as well as the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona. I've already replied, I'm not going to do this again. "I'm not fed up with it - but I almost am".
Player ratingsLiverpool: Simon Mignolet 6, Nathaniel Clyne 7, Dejan Lovren 7, Ragnar Klavan 4, James Milner 6, Lucas 6, Emre Can 7, Georginio Wijnaldum 7, Philippe Coutinho 7, Divock Origi 8, Roberto Firmino 7, Substitutes: Joel Matip (for Coutinho, 65) 6. It's my responsibility, all of this, and I have to be clear in this situations. I should have explained better. One would think he will be the first to admit he got it wrong.
Liverpool has dropped out of the EPL title race this season, lying third after a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth early on Thursday morning, but still have huge pulling power with a large fan base in Australia. He certainly didn't meet City's lofty expectations during his ill-fated two years at the club, but he can at least take heart from a very healthy goals-per-game ratio, compared to those of his fellow compatriots in the Premier League.
Eddie Howe's team took understandable confidence from Liverpool's jitters, with Jack Wilshere and Arter impressing in central midfield.
However, performances like this have got to be improved upon and interestingly, Liverpool do not play a member of the top 7 again this season.
"It's very hard; they don't have the revenue to compete with the others, it will be a building process".
The rest of that day was spent in celebration at yet another Premier League double over the neighbours and the weekend got better as Man Utd, Man City and Arsenal all dropped points. It's very hard coming here. And he was rewarded too, the high point coming when the young striker put us in front at Borussia Dortmund, a goal that would prove precious in the final analysis.
