Minute by minute

Post We'll be back on Tuesday, with the small matter of a Merseyside derby at Anfield. YNWA.
Post And that's all from our coverage today - thanks for following.
Post Check the homepage for a full report from the manager's press conference.
Post Rodgers on Skrtel injury: "He had staples in his head, so he might need to grow some hair now! He'll be fine."
Post Rodgers is confident LFC will have enough time to recover ahead of facing Everton on Tuesday: "The players have had enough recovery time and will recover well for Everton. They have everything there to recover. We go into Tuesday's game on the back of a good win against a good Championship side."
Post Brendan Rodgers: "I thought the second half was more comfortable than the first. We had some good spells and scored a good goal on the counter-attack. Bournemouth are a very good side and we give credit to them first of all. They have a great idea when it comes to playing the game. Eddie is similar to myself in terms of his philosophy. It's not easy when you're a young manager and you stick your neck out to get your teams to play and pass the ball, but you see the great work he does with his staff on the training field. They were excellent, we didn't work hard enough in the first half, but once we re-organised at half-time we were much better. Some of quality today was very good on a difficult pitch."
Post On his thriving partnership with the No.15, Luis Suarez reflected: “We know we can help the team on the pitch. If I look for Daniel and he is free, we know it’s a big chance for us to score a goal.”
Post Daniel Sturridge's assessment of the match: “We played some good football. In the first half, we didn’t really defend as well as we could have and we didn’t put our stamp on the game. But, in the end, we worked hard and our quality showed and we won the game.”
Post The full-time facts and figures suggest that the Reds' passing was key - they were accurate with 85 per cent of almost 500 passes.
Post @Linda_Pizzuti: LFC progresses in the FA Cup after today's win (and clean sheet!). Now on to Tuesday's derby.
Post Three contenders have been selected - attacking trio Victor Moses, Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez.
Post Head over to the official @LFC Twitter account to cast your vote in our Man of the Match poll.
Post Those goals in either half by Moses and Sturridge ensure the Reds will take their place in tomorrow's draw.
Post Liverpool are successfully into the fifth round of the FA Cup!
94 Suarez denied a goal by the Bournemouth 'keeper as he drives a finish at the near post.
90 Four minutes added on.
90 Bournemouth haven't given up and Jones has to punch away a toe-poker by Grabban.
88 Nice flick on the corner of the area by Sturridge to free Flanagan on the right wing; the substitute's cross is hacked away, though.

84 Substitution: Raheem Sterling for Victor Moses:
80 And we're now into the final 10 minutes of this one.

73 Substitution: Ryan Fraser for Matt Ritchie:
73 Substitution: Tokelo Rantie for Marc Pugh:

72 So close to a second for Sturridge! Henderson launches a brilliant pass over the top and the No.15 executes a precise, first-time lob that hits the bar.
65 There has been a good response from Bournemouth to the goal - Grabban now thrashes a shot wide at the near post.
60 SAS combine perfectly to extend Liverpool's lead; Suarez slips his colleague in behind and Sturridge calmly finds the target for his 25th goal for the Reds.
60 GOAL! Daniel Sturridge:
59 Coutinho feeds Sturridge with an accurate through ball - Elphick is there, though, to keep the forward at bay.
57 First Booking: Steven Gerrard: For dissent.
55 Grabban carries the ball along the left hand side and Gerrard is required to concede a corner when his centre arrives.
53 Brief lull in play at the moment as that pair receive attention.
52 Now the striker whips a superb delivery into the middle which Skrtel leaps high to clear with Surman at his back.
50 Faint shouts for a Bournemouth penalty as Lewis Grabban tumbles in the Liverpool area - nothing given by the referee.
47 Sturridge tries a smart step-over, but Suarez is not quite on the same wavelength. Unlucky.
45 The home side have had more attempts on goal, however, with 12 to the Reds' seven.
45 A look at the half-time statistics shows that Liverpool have enjoyed better possession so far - 52.8 per cent.

36 From the subsequent corner, Tommy Elphick glances an inviting headed chance over.
35 Daniels and Surman combine again and a similar move to earlier allows the latter to clip a strike at Jones - Kolo Toure is in the right place at the right time to deflect behind.
32 @LuchoGarcia14: Nice shoot Moses , reds up 1-0. FA cup.
29 Check the homepage now for live photos from the Goldsands Stadium.
26 Liverpool are in front and it's the bright Moses on the scoresheet - the on-loan attacker unleashed a powerful, low drive into the bottom corner from the edge of the Bournemouth penalty box.
26 GOAL! Victor Moses:
25 Gerrard and Suarez stand over a free-kick in a promising position and it's the former who takes control; the captain's curling effort is too high.
22 Sturridge picks up the ball and sets off, racing forward with close control - when the time comes to shoot, however, the No.15 is frustrated by another block.
21 A deep Bournemouth free-kick to the back post is met by Pugh, but he can't successfully direct his header at the Liverpool goal.
19 Fantastic wide play by Moses once more and the Nigerian international sends in a low cross aiming for Daniel Sturridge which is blocked.

13 Simon Francis launches a curling set-piece which briefly troubles Jones, but the Australian tracks backwards to tip over the crossbar.
11 Now Steven Gerrard clips a delightful pass over the backline and into Suarez - but the Uruguayan is flagged offside.
8 A clever attempted pass by Philippe Coutinho towards Luis Suarez is blocked by the home defence.
6 Martin Kelly produces an important clearance under pressure from Marc Pugh as another Bournemouth centre threatens in the opening moments.

Pre The two sides are now waiting in the tunnel at the Goldsands Stadium.

Pre Bournemouth substitutes: Allsop, Cook, Harte, MacDonald, Fraser, Pitman, Rantie
Pre Bournemouth team: Camp, Francis, Ward, Elphick, Daniels, Arter, O'Kane, Surman, Ritchie, Grabban, Pugh

Pre TEAM NEWS: Brendan Rodgers names a strong Liverpool XI to face Bournemouth.
Pre And the first place to discover the boss’ starting XI is the official LFC Twitter account and the homepage; expect confirmation of the team to arrive at around 11.45am GMT.
Pre With regard to injuries, Rodgers shared the news that Glen Johnson has been ruled out indefinitely, while midfielder Lucas Leiva also faces a spell on the sidelines. Defender Jon Flanagan is back in contention, however.
Pre He told “We're in the process of establishing ourselves as a solid Championship team. We're going about that the right way this season. We can draw inspiration from the likes of Liverpool, because we like to get the ball down and play and start moves from our 'keeper. So there are some similarities in the way the two teams play.”
Pre To discover more about today’s opponents, we sought the view from the opposition from Bournemouth skipper – and boyhood Liverpool fan – Tommy Elphick.
Pre Continuing his assessment, Achterberg said: “If you get a chance as a goalkeeper then you need to take your chance and show what you are capable of. He played really well against Oldham.”
Pre Ahead of the trip to Bournemouth, the Australian received backing from his goalkeeping coach, John Achterberg. The Dutchman told "He always works to the maximum of his capabilities.”
Pre At his press conference on Thursday, manager Rodgers revealed that, fitness allowing, goalkeeper Brad Jones will again be handed responsibility between the posts in the FA Cup.
Pre Build-up to the clash on the south coast will begin on LFC TV at 11.45am GMT; return to the club’s official television channel following the final whistle too for our regular post-match phone-in programme.
Pre Have your say on proceedings by including the hashtag #theKOP in your social media posts and you could find yourself featuring on this website in our dedicated fans’ section.
Pre In addition to following the action on this page, make sure to follow the club’s official social media channels throughout the day, including Facebook, Fancred, Google+, Instagram and Twitter for more updates.
Pre The Reds are aiming to reach the fifth round of the tournament – which the club have previously won on seven occasions – for only the third time in the last eight years.
Pre These two teams have only ever met competitively in the FA Cup; in both ties, Liverpool won 4-1 in a third-round replay at Anfield after a draw at Dean Court. The first meeting was in 1927, with the latter in 1968.
Pre That message is particularly important given that Liverpool were eliminated in the fourth round by lower-league opposition 12 months ago, when the Reds were stunned 3-2 by Oldham Athletic.
Pre The No.14 commented: “That’s our aim this year - to have a good run in the FA Cup and go and win it. We are definitely good enough to do so, but we've just got to make sure we are focused and prepare for every game in the right way.”
Pre Jordan Henderson, who played in the 2012 FA Cup final for the Reds, spoke to earlier this week and explained why the thought of defeat by Chelsea almost two years ago can act as an incentive.
Pre Supporters can keep track of everything that happens before, during and after the encounter without having to leave, or refresh, this page – with text updates, audio commentary, scores from elsewhere and much more.
Pre Brendan Rodgers’ team have travelled south for the next stage of world football’s oldest knockout competition, with kick-off at the home of the Cherries scheduled for 12.45pm GMT.
Pre Welcome to the match centre, where you can enjoy extensive coverage of Liverpool’s FA Cup fourth-round clash against Bournemouth at the Goldsands Stadium.
