What is the record win in the Premier League?
Liverpool beat Bournemouth 9-0 on Saturday (August 27) to repeat their Premier League record win.
This coincided with previous 9-0 wins for Manchester United and Leicester.
Jurgen Klopp’s men had just won the league title last season and started the new campaign slowly, with surprise draws against Fulham and Crystal Palace exacerbated by Monday’s loss to rivals Manchester United.
Scott Parker warned of a backlash and there was nothing his Bournemouth side could do to prevent humiliation at Anfield, with Liverpool recording their first Premier League win of the season at a record pace.
The Cherries join Southampton and Ipswich, suffering a 9-0 defeat in the competition.

What happened to Liverpool’s victory?
Firmino, who started in place of summer suspension Darvin Nunez, put in a stunning first-half performance that began with Diaz sending home his cut pass three minutes into the match.
Firmino then provided an assist, scoring Harvey Elliott’s first Premier League goal, a dizzying long-range strike that could have been the Goal of the Day had it not been for the stunning Trent Alexander-Arnold who followed.
The Brazilian striker scored the goal and soon celebrated his own with a rebound – his first league goal at Anfield since December 2020.
Vigil van Dijk scored Liverpool’s fifth goal after the first half, while Chris Mepham’s own goal hit the Cherries hard early in the second half.
Firmino latched onto the afternoon before walking away to applause.
However, the goals didn’t stop there, with Fabio Carvalho scoring his first goal for the club and Díaz scoring his second, but calls for a tenth goal went unanswered.
It was a great day at Anfield reeling, with Liverpool scoring a goal within 150 seconds of kick-off.
Firmino showed intelligence and composure, picking up the lost ball to dodge danger and cross right on Diaz, who headed ahead of Mark Travers with an impressive header.
The goal was called after a VAR check and Liverpool doubled their lead in the sixth minute.
Mohamed Salah cut in from the right and Firmino’s inside shot was met with Elliott’s shot from the edge of the flying box.
Diaz saw the goal ruled out for offside and Salah somehow failed to turn home at the far post from Elliott’s cross kick as Liverpool continued to dominate.
Salah threw a shot and Alexander-Arnold got a pass back from Firmino, continuing to land a powerful 25-yard shot that whizzed into the top left corner.
Three minutes later, Firmino will score a goal.
Salah’s right flank pass attempt ricocheted brutally off Bournemouth’s Marcus Tavernier and flew towards the penalty area, where Firmino reacted to a stretch and put the ball on target.
Guests scored fifth in the course of the half. Travers pushed a long-range shot from Firmino to a corner that Andy Robertson sent to Van Dijk to attack.
Anfield’s onslaught continued after the break, with Bournemouth conceding a sixth goal within a minute of the start of the second half.
Alexander-Arnold’s cross was directed into his own net by Chris Mepham under pressure from Liverpool’s Diaz. The goal was awarded after a lengthy VAR check for offside.
Firmino shot on goal as Liverpool again threatened to score. As a result, I had to wait until the 62nd minute.
Robertson landed a dangerous cross that keeper Travers parried into the path of Firmino, who clumsily landed a seventh in front of the Kop.
The 30-year-old received a hug from Klopp when the Liverpool boss made the change, but Salah remained on the lookout for a goal he somehow failed to find at close range in the 75th minute.
Once the suspense seemed to have been lifted from the match, Liverpool celebrated the eighth result when Kostas Tsimikas found a fellow replacement for Carvalho, who scored in cold blood.
Bobby Clarke made his debut shortly before Diaz headed home from the Tsimikas corner to raise a nine.
Travers prevented James Milner from making it into double figures as Bournemouth avoided further humiliation.
