Fifth straight win for Liverpool

Fifth straight win for Liverpool

Mo Salah showed a touch of class off the pitch to go with his brilliance on it after netting a hat-trick in Liverpool's 4-0 win over Bournemouth.

The points had long since been wrapped up, though, as Liverpool equalled their club record of 17 Premier League games unbeaten to pile the pressure on Man City ahead of their trip to Stamford Bridge later today.

Eddie Howe's players pointed out that Salah had been in an offside position but their complaints were dismissed, although TV replays suggested they had a case.

Bournemouth's hopes of halting Liverpool's progress suffered a blow when Callum Wilson, the England worldwide who has scored eight league goals this season, was ruled out with a hamstring injury.

"Even if they lost a few games, we saw the games and it was always really hard work for the opponent". In the end when you see how it developed, especially with the scoreline at the end, it is ideal, but in the game we had a lot of things we could have done better.

"I can enjoy it today because we won 4-0, but I think, obviously, it's more something for when you look back", he added. I know expectations of me are very high but the most important... We said at half-time that so far it was OK but not more, we had to do better because we can do better - the counter-press, we had to keep it up, putting them under pressure if we lose the ball.

James Milner started his 500th Premier League game at right-back whilst Naby Keita started from the left in the absence of Sadio Mane, who was on the substitutes bench.

Jurgen Klopp, who made five changes to the side that beat Burnley including recalling Andy Robertson and Salah, saw his side not at their best but doing enough to get the job done. If your team's manager reacted in that way after you had just scored a vital goal, you'd love it.

Liverpool will be waiting on Manchester City's result later in the day, with the hope that Pep Guardiola's side can drop points to rivals Chelsea.

Whatever you do in a football game, you need someone to finish it off.

On the other hand, Milner has hailed Mohamed Salah as "unbelievable", and revealed his delight at reaching the 500-game milestone. I played in enough derbies to know what is at stake.
