The Reds cruised to victory on the south coast to retain their unbeaten Premier League run. Liverpool beat Bournemouth 3-0 in what was an easy performance at the Vitality Stadium, stretching their lead again to double digits atop the table.

Jurgen Klopp continued to rotate his side in an effort to provide rest without relinquishing rhythm. That meant the side needed time to synchronise. The breakthrough came when Jordan Henderson beat Bournemouth’s entire side with a deep diagonal pass behind the defence, where Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain raced through for an exquisite one-touch finish.

With the lead, Liverpool applied patient pressure to the home side, pinning Bournemouth into their own end for long periods. The Reds were content to recycle the ball and bide their time, taking chances as they came.

Just before the break, Mo Salah set up Naby Keita with a beautiful back-heel that the midfielder hooked in for the second goal. With halftime offering Liverpool increased leverage in each match this season, Bournemouth were effectively broken.

As has been their way, Liverpool jumped on their opponent early in the second half, when Keita sent Salah through with a perfectly weighted pass that the Egyptian simply turned inside the far post. From that point, the Reds ran the rule over their hosts and coasted to victory. In Jurgen Klopp’s 100th league match with the club, Liverpool won their 71st.
