Jurgen Klopp was a happy man after Liverpool beat Bournemouth 2-1 this afternoon.
The Anfield manager led his side a comeback victory against the Cherries at home – a result that puts them 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League and just three wins away from the title.

But Liverpool were back level shortly after through Mohamed Salah.
And then Sadio Mane popped up to make it 2-1 before half-time – an advantage Liverpool held on to in a second half they dominated.
Speaking after the game, Klopp praised his team before insisting he won’t allow then to focus on being within touching distance of the title:
Liverpool face Atletico Madrid at Anfield on Wednesday night in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
And it will be a huge night considering Diego Simeone’s side won 1-0 out in Spain two weeks ago.
