Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum admits he played with diarrhoea on Saturday

Georginio Wijnaldum urged Liverpool to "keep it going" after he dragged himself off his sickbed to help them get their title bid back on track with a 3-0 win over Bournemouth. wwwpic5678 The Netherlands international had been struggling with sickness in the 48 hours leading up to Saturday's match, resulting in being ordered by the doctor to stay away from the team hotel the night before the game.

Even though he was still affected during the clash he played a key role, including scoring a brilliant lob over Artur Boruc for Liverpool's second. "Thursday night I had a tablet from the doctor for my knee. It was a tablet that could induce stomach pains," Wijnaldum said. "I took it and I had a pain and thought it was from the tablet. In the end I was vomiting and everyone was a little bit scared.

"I didn't train on Friday and I didn't sleep at the hotel either because they thought I might infect other players. "The manager called me and said 'Do you think you can play?' wwwpic5678 I said I was as positive as I can. In the morning I was still weak and had diarrhoea. "The tablets helped a lot but even at half-time I had to run off to get to the toilet. I was like 'Oh no!'. I ran inside and I managed to control it!"

Wijnaldum's return to the side after missing Monday's draw at West Ham made a significant difference against Bournemouth. However, what was more important was getting back to winning ways after back-to-back 1-1 draws against the Hammers and wwwpic5678 Leicester had left critics questioning their mettle for a title fight. Liverpool's win saw them return to the top of the Premier League, although Manchester City regained first place on goal difference following Sunday's thumping 6-0 win over Chelsea.
