Being bold the best way to keep pace with City says Shaqiri

This is the first time in a while that the Reds will play before Manchester City, meaning that they will have a chance to go top of the table for few hours by beating the Cherries.

The hosts' Steve Cook scored a spectacular own goal for Liverpool's third.

FW Sadio Mane, 6 - Getting him back on the pitch was a massive boost, given he was a serious doubt for the game with a foot injury. The No.10 came off the bench for the final 25 minutes.

Salah was awarded the man of the match award, but refused to take the bright yellow brick, insisting on giving it to his teammate James Milner to mark his 500th appearance in the Premier League. Fabinho was expected to be in the starting lineup, but not on the right side of the back four.

However, the opener would belong to Salah, who linked up well with Firmino and reacted quickest to bury the rebound after Asmir Begovic had spilled the Brazilian's speculative long-ranger.

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

From there, it felt like a question of how many more goals a hugely impressive display would yield for Klopp's team.

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.

But the Egyptian has proven his pedigree by continuing to hit the back of the net.

Salah did the rest, twisting and turning his way past the goalkeeper not once but twice before slotting in to add gloss to another Liverpool win.
