It was necessary to win his first match in the Premier League and Liverpool FC took the mission seriously by endorsing a scandalous 9-0 win over Bournemouth on matchday four of the English league. The Colombian Luis Díaz was one of the great figures of the reds when billing a header double.

Liverpool FC, current runner-up in the Premier and Champions League, had tied against Fulham (2-2) and against Crystal Palace they could not go beyond the tie (1-1). To add a touch of drama, on the third date they fell 2-1 against Manchester United, which forced the coach to consider things.

Everything began to be defined early on thanks to Díaz’s accurate header after 3 minutes of play. That was the beginning of a football gale led by the Brazilian Roberto Firmino with two assists and a brace of goals.

Firmino’s appearance was fair and necessary after having lost prominence with the arrivals of Luis Díaz and Darwin Núñez, after the departure of Sadio Mané to Bayern Munich. Harvey Elliot placed second, Trent Alexander-Arnold third, Firmino fourth and Virgil van Dijk fifth at 45′.

In the complement, the win was completed thanks to goals from Chris Mepham, Firmino, Fábio Carvalho and Luis Díaz at 85′.

For the first time in history, Liverpool FC scored nine goals in the Premier League. He equaled Manchester United’s records against Ipswich in 1995 and against Southampton in 2021. Leicester had also endorsed nine to Southampton in 2019.
