Gary Neville trolls Liverpool after Bournemouth’s controversial opener

Manchester United legend Gary Neville couldn’t resist trolling Liverpool after they conceded to Bournemouth.

The Cherries took the lead after just nine minutes through Callum Wilson at Anfield.

Wilson bundled past Joe Gomez in the build up to the goal, but VAR ruled that the forward hadn’t committed a foul.

After Wilson slotted home, Neville posted on Twitter a hilarious selfie.

Bournemouth’s lead didn’t last long anyway. Reds talisman Mohamaed Salah got his side back on level terms just a few minutes later.

Sadio Mane then put Liverpool in front to help silence the doubters.

Former defender Stephen Warnock claimed Gomez made a mess of Wilson’s opener.

“There was a push in the back, but I think Joe Gomez should have dealt with the situation better,” he said.

“It was the first attack that Bournemouth have had.

“Lovely reverse ball from Philip Billing into Jefferson Lerma and a simple pass across the box to Callum Wilson. First attack first goal for Bournemouth.”

Prior to today’s match, Liverpool’s form had been patchy.

Jurgen Klopp, however, claimed the fabled Anfield atmosphere can always lift the players.

“We have to create an atmosphere again tomorrow, we have to use the atmosphere then, but for that everybody needs to have the right mindset, our people as well,” he said.
