Mohamed Salah scored more than once in a league game for the first time since 17 March, when he scored four against Watford Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick against Bournemouth to send Liverpool to the top of the table - then handed his man-of-the-match award to team-mate James Milner. He finished clinically and his eighth top-flight goal of the season was allowed to stand to break the deadlock in a game the visitors dominated from the start. With Jordan Henderson on the bench, Milner captained Liverpool to victory in a game in which his statistics were again impressive. We were fine until that moment. Liverpool have taken 45 points from the past 51 on offer and are unbeaten in 17 league games in a run that stretches back to last season.
The bad news is they still have to face Tottenham and United - both away - in the league this month. There was nothing fortuitous about the Liverpool forward's second though, a composed finish after driving at the Bournemouth defence, before Steve Cook backheeled the ball into his own net while attempting a clearance to make it 3-0. Bournemouth come unstuck against top six - again Bournemouth started the weekend seventh in the table - level on points with sixth-placed Everton - and with plaudits ringing in Howe's ears. Cook's troubled game continued when the Bournemouth defender inadvertently diverted the ball into his own net following a cross by Andy Robertson, before Salah completed the rout. Former England midfielder Milner became the 13th player to make 500 Premier League appearances when he captained Liverpool against the Cherries.
James Milner reached a top speed of 31. They were not helped by the absence of leading scorer Callum Wilson because of a hamstring injury, but the England striker would not have helped their defence - now without a clean sheet in seven league and cup games - contain Liverpool. Since the start of 2017-18, Bournemouth have lost 15 times in 17 games against Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United. This scenario is becoming a familiar story for the Dorset club against the league's leading sides. Bournemouth have every right to feel disgruntled about the former Chelsea player's first, with television replays clearly showing Salah was offside when Firmino struck the shot that Begovic spilled into his path. We did both very often but not always as they had their moments too, of course.
I hope we'll win something together. We are disappointed as it's another game that has gone away from us. We still had a competitive team on the pitch.

We just had to manage the scoreline. Having successfully negotiated a on Wednesday, Klopp's side started a huge week by ruthlessly dismantling Bournemouth. Man of the match - Mohamed Salah Liverpool Salah was simply too good for Bournemouth. Salah goes into Tuesday's Champions League must-win group game with Napoli having marked his return to the starting line-up by emphatically ending a three-match run without a goal. Despite Cook's attempt to bring him down, Salah stayed on his feet to drive at Bournemouth's defence before producing a neat finish into the corner via a slight deflection off Ake. It has a huge bearing on the match. Yet the hosts can have few complaints about his second or third.
This is discouraged and will be removed in upcoming major release. In fact the Yorkshireman found himself in the Bournemouth half as often as he was his own as he played a significant part in the 238th top-flight win of his career. Howe's team are regularly praised for producing attractive, progressive football - but their record against the top-six teams is extremely poor. But Milner was otherwise a reassuring presence in the back four, demonstrating his value to Klopp with his ability to move from midfield to full-back and give youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold a rest with Gomez injured. It is a tough league. We played nice football and the players we brought on did really well. Their climb from League Two to the fringes of European qualification in 10 seasons is nothing short of phenomenal, but the Cherries were second best all over the pitch against Liverpool.
We have to deal with players who aren't here and can't use that as an excuse. I've not watched it back but we improved in the second half and controlled the game. While the headlines belong to Salah, Liverpool overcame the absences of injured defensive trio Joe Gomez, Dejan Lovren and Nathaniel Clyne to record a 10th Premier League clean sheet of the season before next Sunday's visit of Manchester United to Anfield. Salah then completed his hat-trick after rounding Begovic, cutting back to beat the Bournemouth keeper for a second time and poking the ball past Nathan Ake on the line. It is really cool and it helps of course! I expected a very different second half.
After shrugging Cook off the ball following substitute Adam Lallana's long punt forward, Salah dribbled into the box before tormenting Begovic and slotting home. . . . .
