LIVERPOOL manager Jurgen Klopp says his side's 4-3 loss to Bournemouth in the English Premier League was just a stumble - as long as the team learns from its mistakes.

The Reds missed the chance to reclaim second spot behind Chelsea on the ladder after twice giving up two-goal leads at Bournemouth.

They remain third after defensive errors cost the win but Klopp said there were lessons to be learned.

"Of course this can help us,” he said.

"If we learn, then it's okay.

"No road is without rocks and stones.

"It's three points, no more, these things happen.

"The base is pretty good but we need to use our quality more.”

Sadio Mane and Divock Origi put Liverpool 2-0 up before the Cherries replied from the spot through Callum Wilson.

Emre Can restored Liverpool's two-goal cushion before two goals in three minutes helped the home side level again.

Bournemouth completed the unlikely comeback in the third minute of injury time when goalkeeper Loris Karius fumbled a shot from long range and Nathan Ake poked the ball in.

Manchester United also gave up a late goal in its 1-1 draw with Everton.

United looked like securing the win after Zlatan Ibrahimovic's 12th goal of the season.

But substitute Marouane Fellaini, who had only been on the field for four minutes against his old team, gave away a penalty with a minute remaining after a clumsy tackle on Idrissa Gueye.

Defender Leighton Baines beat David De Gea from the penalty spot to leave United 13 points off top spot in sixth.

"We are not getting what we deserve,” United manager Jose Mourinho said.

"In every one of our draws we deserved to win.”

"You have (other) teams playing defensive and counter-attacking football but getting results.”

"I'm happy my team is playing extremely well. But this season what matters is the results.”
