Liverpool moved a step closer to the Premier League title after beating Bournemouth 2-1 at Anfield on Saturday. Goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane secured a 27th win of the campaign for the leaders after Callum Wilson opened the scoring for the visitors.

Today’s result has put the Reds 25 points clear of nearest rivals Manchester City, who face neighbours Manchester United in a derby on Sunday. City will still have another game in hand, but Liverpool winning a first domestic top-flight title since 1990 is now a matter of when, not if.

    

What’s Next?

Liverpool host Atletico Madrid in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League last 16 on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Bournemouth are at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
