Matt Le Tissier was impressed by the goal that Liverpool loanee Harry Wilson scored for Bournemouth in their 2-1 defeat against Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Saturday afternoon.
Wilson put the Cherries ahead in the 14th minute after a well-worked set-piece by Eddie Howe’s side.
Unfortunately for the south coast club, Newcastle rallied after going behind and goals by DeAndre Yedlin and Ciaran Clark bagged Steve Bruce and his men all three points.
Le Tissier was still blown away by Wilson’s involvement though when he scored in the first half.
“It’s a lovely little move, a set-piece they’ve obviously worked at on the training ground and it finishes with Harry Wilson,” said Le Tissier on Sky Sports News on Saturday.
“It’s a little short corner, lovely little side-foot pass towards the penalty spot. Harry Wilson comes around and finishes it brilliantly into the bottom corner.
“What a goal. What a well-worked goal,”
Wilson has had a quiet few weeks for Bournemouth so it is good to see him back on the scoresheet again for the sake of Liverpool. Wilson now has four goals for the Cherries in the Premier League this season and that is bound to boost his chances of either breaking to Jurgen Klopp’s senior side at Anfield or boost his potential transfer value if he is moved on by the Reds next summer. Either way, it is a good thing for Liverpool to see Wilson doing well. Hopefully he can build on that goal because, after the international break, Bournemouth will need to respond from their defeat to Newcastle. They have some tough games on the horizon with clashes against Tottenham, Liverpool and Chelsea to contend with in their next five games. Wilson will be unavailable for that game against Liverpool but Howe is bound to find that a tough fixture with or without the Welsh international.
