Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp admitted his team had only themselves to blame after their 4-3 defeat to Bournemouth on Sunday.
The Reds charged into a two-goal lead at the Vitality Stadium thanks to goals from Sadio Mane and Divock Origi. Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson responded from the penalty spot before Emre Can put his side two goals in front again.
However, Klopp’s men then conceded three goals in the last 14 minutes as Ryan Fraser, Steve Cook and Nathan Ake all fired home.
Sunday’s defeat leaves Liverpool four points behind league leaders Chelsea and Klopp admits his side threw the game away.
He told reporters: “First of all I have to say a deserved win for Bournemouth. A big fight from them. We gave the game away at a decisive point.
“We opened the door and they ran through and scored some wonderful goals. So that’s the deserved result.
“Even when we are in the lead at 2-0 it’s how we try to play football then we were static. We gave the game away because we didn’t play football any more.
“If we learn it’s OK. At 2-0 or 3-1 the game is not decided but the way we played after we gave it away. We gave Bournemouth the ball. These things happen.”
