Mo Salah produced a horrendous penalty miss for Liverpool against Bournemouth in Saturday’s early kick-off.

The Reds looked anything like the side who smashed seven past Manchester United on Sunday and found themselves 1-0 down in the first half when Philip Billing took advantage of some lazy Virgil van Dijk defending and slotted home for the second consecutive game.

Jurgen Klopp’s men had a glorious opportunity to level matters in the second half after being awarded a spot-kick.

The visitors appealed for handball against Adam Smith, who blocked Diogo Jota’s goal-bound header with his arm.

John Brooks went to the VAR screen and gave the penalty, giving Salah, Liverpool’s second highest ever goalscorer the chance to add to his 129 goals for the club.

Salah is normally uber reliable from 12 yards but this time he got it very wrong, curling the ball wide with his left foot as he looked to find the top corner.

The ball ended up in the stands behind the goal, with Salah bringing his hands to his head in disbelief.

Incredibly, it was the first penalty Liverpool had been awarded this season – their last coming back in April.

Salah missed a penalty for the third time in his Premier League career but this was the first instance where he had failed to hit the target.
