Even Liverpool's luminous kit couldn't take them to victory against Bournemouth

For most of Liverpool’s match against Bournemouth, it wasn’t football that was front of everyone’s mind. Instead, people seemed more preoccupied with Liverpool’s curious choice of kit.

In case you missed it, just feast your eyes on Liverpool’s away outfits. Trust us, you won’t be able to miss it.

Not to blow anything out of proportion, but people were losing their minds over the luminous kit.

Maybe the choice of colour was a tactical decision?

It was definitely something to focus on in a slightly one-sided game, with Liverpool storming 3-1 ahead.

However, mid-way through the second half fashion was no longer anyone’s concern as Bournemouth staged the most astounding comeback.

They equalised with goals from Ryan Fraser and Steve Cook, then in extra time Liverpool were dealt a further blow with Nathan Ake taking Bournemouth into the lead.

The comeback was gobsmacking, and it wasn’t long before people were bemoaning Liverpool’s poor performance in the second half. Seriously, how could they have let such a solid lead slide?

It became a pretty explosive match by the end, which is not really what any of us had initially predicted.

So it seems as though Liverpool fans ended the match as irate with the team as they were with the colour of their kit.
