Salah hits hat-trick as Reds beat Bournemouth to go top

Liverpool Liverpool take on Bournemouth on Saturday

Cook's day then went from bad to worse when he inexplicably backheeled a terrific own goal past his own keeper to make it 3-0 to the Reds. Sadio Mane is a major doubt, but Georginio Wijnaldum and Andy Robertson is back in the reckoning.

DF James Milner, 7 - Took one for the team by playing right-back on his 500th Premier League appearance but, despite that, made it two good performances in a matter of days for the 32-year-old.

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

Shaqiri saw a 13th-minute free-kick deflect wide off Charlie Daniels in the wall, before the Swiss created Liverpool's first meaningful chance by clipping a pass over Nathan Ake for Salah.

Cherries striker Josh King dragged an attempt wide midway through the half, and Alisson Becker was called into action to palm David Brooks' effort behind as the hosts threatened.

A spell of Bournemouth pressure followed Salah's 10th goal of the season, but Liverpool navigated their way to the interval with their lead intact.

Fields referred to Heyer's mother in a recorded jailhouse phone call as a "communist" and "one of those anti-white supremacists". The trial featured emotional testimony from survivors who described devastating injuries and long, complicated recoveries.

MF Naby Keita, 7 - Picked up immediately from where he left off at Burnley with a double nutmeg inside three minutes.

In trademark style, Firmino stole the ball just inside Bournemouth's half and fed Salah.

Despite it clearly hurting him, Salah stayed on his feet and made it 2-0. Not the most impressive finish, but I would say pretty surprising.

Beyond that star quartet there's a chasm in the betting with Sterling and Eden Hazard next in at 20/1, so it looks like it could be a four-horse race for the top scoring crown, but Salah's hat-trick today has seen him become a real contender yet again.

Liverpool have not lost any of the 23 away matches in all competitions in which Firmino has scored (20 wins, three draws).
