Liverpool are top of the Premier League after beating Bournemouth 4-0 on Saturday lunchtime.

Jurgen Klopp’s side went into the game just two points behind Manchester City, with City travelling to Chelsea on Saturday evening.

The Reds made five changes to their starting XI following their 3-1 at Burnley at Turf Moor on Wednesday.

Coming back into the starting line-up was a certain Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian scored a ridiculous 44 goals during his debut campaign at Liverpool last season but started this campaign off slightly slower by those standards.

However, at the Vitality Stadium, he looked to be back to his very best.

He gave Liverpool a first-half lead after Asmir Begovic could only parry Roberto Firmino’s strike into this path.


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

After Firmino won the ball back, Salah ran at the Bournemouth defence and finished into the bottom corner.

But before his finish, defender Steve Cook nastily caught Salah on the Achilles.

Despite it clearly hurting him, Salah stayed on his feet and made it 2-0.

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



It was an act that Liverpool fans loved. Check out the reaction on social media:

Things got worse for Cook, who scored an own goal to make it 3-0 to Liverpool.

Salah then completed his hat-trick when he took it around Begovic, took his time, and completed a fantastic afternoon for himself and Liverpool.

Liverpool fans will now temporarily become Chelsea fans as they hope Pep Guardiola's side will drop points at Stamford Bridge.

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.
