Paul Merson has reacted funnily to AFC Bournemouth's heavy defeat to Liverpool at Anfield

Paul Merson | Liverpool 9-0 Bournemouth

On Saturday, Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side equalled the largest victory in Premier League history by beating Bournemouth 9-0 at Anfield.

Roberto Firmino and Luis Diaz shared  four goals during  the game - two each - while Harvey Elliott, Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold Fabio Carvalho were also on scoresheet for the Reds. 

Liverpool quickly surpassed their slow beginning of the new season coming from the back of a defeat at Old Trafford.

Sky Sports pundit and columnist Paul  Merson, wrote after the game: "This Premier League has got three or four leagues going on within it.

"The gulf in class between some of the teams is unreal.

“Bournemouth have just played Man City, Arsenal and Liverpool and lost to a combined scoreline of 16-0 so it just shows you the difference between the sides is huge.

“I don’t think you should get beat 9-0. I really don’t like that.

“It’s a really embarrassing score. You are a professional football team playing in the Premier League, it shouldn’t happen.

“If you get beat 9-0 on a Sunday morning that’s big in itself. No player, professional or amateur, would like it.

“I was beaten 5-0 as a manager and five was embarrassing enough.

“When it gets to six or seven, it reminds me of the old days and the old teleprinter and they used to spell the number out.

“If someone got beat by seven, they’d spell the number out in brackets. That is how bad it is.”
