Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

Mohamed Salah refused to accept the Man of the Match award after scoring a hat trick in Liverpool's 4-0 win over Bournemouth, instead handing it to teammate James Milner in recognition of a landmark appearance. "It's probably Manchester City's hardest game this weekend so Liverpool have to make sure they win", Merson told Sky Sports. Sadio Mane is a major doubt, but Georginio Wijnaldum and Andy Robertson is back in the reckoning.

Liverpool have gone top of the Premier League after a 4-0 demolition of Bournemouth this afternoon, with Mo Salah the star of the show.

"I just can't believe Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool fans - and I don't believe they do - would want cheating in the game and sacrifice good, honest challenges".

Roberto Firmino had a potshot from distance that Asmir Begovic should have saved but instead he spilt it into the path of the former Roma forward.

And during his celebrations, Salah appeared to stare back at the culprit.

But Salah and co. will be concentrating on their massive Champions League tie against Napoli on Tuesday where they need to win either 1-0 - or by two clear goals - to progress to the last-16.


Then, in the second-half, he produced a moment of magic.

He was caught by the chasing Cook, however he continued his run - such was his confidence on the day - and slotted home in the far corner past Begovic.

Mohamed Salah's double either side of half-time established an advantage that was added to by Steve Cook's own goal midway through the second period and a third from the Reds' No.11.

The Egypt worldwide had not scored in three games before Saturday's game, but took the match ball home as Liverpool equalled their record of 17 Premier League matches unbeaten.

"Liverpool have got to somehow stay on the heels of Manchester City".
