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.
