Liverpool beat Bournemouth despite Mac Allister red

Liverpool coped despite Alexis Mac Allister's second-half red card to beat Bournemouth 3-1 and get their season fully up and running.

Antoine Semenyo had given the Cherries a shock lead on three minutes but Jurgen Klopp's side found their groove with goals from Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah - scoring after his penalty was saved - handing them a first-half advantage.

Things could have become tricky when Mac Allister, making his Anfield debut, was dismissed for a high challenge on Ryan Christie on 58 minutes but if anything Liverpool went up another gear with 10 players.

Diogo Jota took advantage of some poor goalkeeping from Neto to make it 3-1 as Klopp found a way to hand a debut to new signing Wataru Endo off the bench, who joined in a deal worth £16.2m.
