Rio Ferdinand fires shots at Liverpool’s Joe Gomez for error against Bournemouth

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand says Joe Gomez should have dealt far better with Callum Wilson for Bournemouth’s opener against Liverpool .

The Cherries took a shock lead against the runaway Premier League heavyweights this afternoon.

Wilson slotted home from close range after just nine minutes.

England international Gomez should have done far better in the build up, though. The forward bundled through very easily – and VAR ruled that he hadn’t committed a foul.

"At game pace, we all here thought that was never a foul,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.

"But with VAR nowadays, that becomes a foul and I would say it is a foul.

"But Gomez, if he analyses that, he was there before Wilson, just deal with it and then take that element of doubt out of the situation by dealing with it properly."

Former defender Stephen Warnock also claimed Gomez failed to deal with Wilson effectively.

“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.”

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.

Wilson should have got a late leveller in injury time, but somehow managed to get the ball stuck under his feet.
