Klopp nets first win as Liverpool beat Bournemouth 1-0

Jurgen Klopp netted his first win as Liverpool boss as a first goal from Nathaniel Clyne accounted for Bournemouth 1-0 in the Capital One Cup Fourth Round. Liverpool survived a number of scares in the opening half and had Adam Bogdan to thank for keeping Junior Stanislas at bay on three occasions.

And it was a moment of quality from the home side that was the difference on the night. Roberto Firminio played in Carlos Teixeira and his cheeky backheel was cleared off the line by Adam Smith, only for Clyne to slam home with his left boot to open his Liverpool account. It’s the second time in as many seasons that Liverpool have beaten Bournemouth in the cup and they progress to the quarter-finals and remain on course for a record-breaking ninth League Cup win.
