This weekend Liverpool got back on track with a win over Bournemouth. The Reds had lost three in their last four before the weekend victory. Harry Wilson was pictured in the crowd sporting a Liverpool coat but he has taken to Twitter to explain away the controversy.
Saturday was a routine win for Jürgen Klopp’s men, despite an early hiccough.
The visitors went 1-0 up after just nine minutes when Callum Wilson shoved Joe Gomez off the ball and got on the end of a cross for a tap in.
Mo Salah soon brought The Reds level despite Sadio Mane’s pass being behind him, it was an instinctive finish from the Egyptian into the bottom right corner.
Mane turned from provider to scorer shortly after, latching on to Virgil van Dijk’s slide rule pass to slot past the helpless Aaron Ramsdale.

During the game one of Bournemouth’s most important players was pictured in the stands, ineligible to play as he is on loan from The Reds. Harry Wilson was seen in an LFC branded coat but has explained the decision on Twitter following backlash from Cherries fans.

What RTK has to say
This feels like a big fuss over nothing for us.
Harry Wilson is still a Liverpool player and if he wants to wear a Liverpool coat then let him.
We can of course understand why Bournemouth fans would feel a bit miffed by the decision but it’s not as if he started the day planning to sartorially slap his loan fans.
Wilson could prove a nifty replacement for Xherdan Shaqiri next season should the Swiss international move on.
