Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth
(Salah 25’, Mane 33’ – Wilson 9’)
Alex made a ninth consecutive appearance for Liverpool as the Reds are now just three wins away from a first top-flight title in 30 years, beating Bournemouth 2-1 at Anfield on Saturday.
After a nervy start with Alex’s side falling behind early, the 26-year-old helped the hosts find their composure, with three successful dribbles – the second most of any Liverpool player behind Mohamed Salah, who levelled the contest.
Alex also had has many attempts on goal, with two of his three shots on target with the midfielder always trying to make the difference from a deeper position compared to right-wing where he has also featured for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
What Does This Mean?
With Liverpool extending their unbeaten home run in the league to 55 matches, the second-longest streak of any Premier League side, Alex and his teammates are now 25 points at the top of the table with nine games remaining.
Liverpool’s defence of their Champions League crown is at stake next up on Wednesday as Alex will hope to guide his team to another Anfield comeback, trailing 1-0 on aggregate to Atletico Madrid.
