Liverpool continued their march in the league with a convincing 4-0 win at Bournemouth, claiming the top of the table, at least for a few hours.
Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick, while Steve Cook netted an unfortunate own goal to seal the deal for the Reds.
Jurgen Klopp made five changes to the lineup that faced Burnley but still had a strong eleven on the pitch, a testament to the strong squad he has now.
A Roberto Firmino shot parried out by Asmir Begovic was followed in by Salah to give the away side a lead at the mid-way point of the first half.
The Egyptian then scored again two minutes after the resumption, even though Cook tried to foul him at the edge of the box.
Andy Robertson then fizzed in a great cross, and with Sadio Mane lurking, Cook turned the ball into his own net.
Salah then wrapped up proceedings and completed his hat-trick with a fantastic solo goal, brilliantly found by Adam Lallana.
Here’s how we rated the Liverpool players:
Had to make one or two routine saves, other than that, a comfortable afternoon for the Brazilian.
James Milner (7)
The landmark man played at right-back today and did well against the likes of Ryan Fraser and Junior Stanislas.
Joel Matip (7)
A secured performance from the Cameroonian who was good on the ball as well.
Virgil van Dijk (7)
Just strolled through another game without much trouble. He is a real colossus at the back.
Andy Robertson (8)
He was a bit loose on the ball in the first half but always secured defensively and improved on the former after the break.
The Brazilian is settling into the team now. Looks an assured figure in midfield.
Georginio Wijnaldum (7)
A competent performance from the Dutchman who controlled the midfield well along side Fabinho.
Naby Keita (6)
Started the game with consecutive nutmegs but wasn’t really involved all the time. Subbed off with Napoli in mind.
Xherdan Shaqiri (6)
The Swiss did his bit on the right-hand side of attack without really threatening. Taken off with Napoli in mind.
Roberto Firmino (8)
Probably his best performance in a while. The Brazilian was at his near best today.
Mohamed Salah (10)
The Egyptian was at his menacing best today. Scoring three and he looked a real threat in behind.
Sub: Sadio Mane (6)
Came on for the last half hour to provide Shaqiri the rest and probably prove his fitness.
Sub: Adam Lallana (7)
Assisted Salah’s third goal and involved himself in the midfield battle.
Sub: Jordan Henderson (5)
The captain arrived late on to shore things up in midfield.
