Klopp delighted with 'perfect' Liverpool for Bournemouth win

Klopp delighted with 'perfect' Liverpool for Bournemouth win

Ask him! He was very often in good situations and in the end he scored one goal.

And according to Spanish news outlet Don Balon, who are well known for their outlandish transfer claims, Jurgen Klopp is desperate to land Vazquez this summer.

The Egypt global deftly headed in Liverpool's second goal at Anfield to join Ian Rush and Roger Hunt as the only players to achieve the feat for the Reds.

Salah, Mane and Roberto Firmino netted to sink Eddie Howe's Cherries at Anfield in a routine 3-0 win. And neither of his predecessors achieved that mark in as few as the 45 games it has taken Salah to do so.

Salah's goal, his 30th in the division, not only furthered his individual case to beat Harry Kane in the golden boot race, but also strengthened Liverpool's grip on a top-four finish as they re-established their 10-point cushion over fifth-placed Chelsea.

Either side of Salah's goal were efforts from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, taking their respective Liverpool tallies for the season to 25 and 17, meaning the prolific front three have now combined for an astonishing 82 goals between them this season.

There are praises all over the social media for Liverpool's performance and here are some of the best tweets on Twitter. And then what you need in a game like this, against a side who want to have counter-attacks - which is normal if they are that much under pressure - the counter-pressing was outstanding from the boys.

"We have a big chance here to create something for the future". That's really good but we have to carry on, there are a few games to come. It gave us a mountain to climb.

Bournemouth didn't muster a shot on target in a first half they were second best in throughout, and were delighted to hear Chris Kavanagh's whistle for half-time finding themselves only one goal behind.

To be fair, if we were as good as Salah, we'd probably be greedy as well.

Liverpool had a penalty appeal on 66 minutes after what looked like a foul by Nathan Ake on Salah but nothing was given. Weeks ago, I said to Mo after a game, "that's a situation where you have to pass" and sometimes it's so obvious that he knows it of course.

The reds are now clear in third with the position in their own hands and with just four Premier League games remaining.

Mane is now the highest-scoring Senegalese player in Premier League history with 44 goals.

After the Premier League made their decision, Salah tweeted: "Wooooooow really?"
