What a game. Today *could* be the day Man City falls. Fans took to twitter to celebrate after Mo Salah pretty much single handedly finished off Bournemouth at Vitality Stadium.
The squad was looking somewhat more normal for today’s match against Bournemouth following the head scratching starting XI on Wednesday night. The back line was the only thing looking out of place following Joe Gomez’s ankle injury mid week that should see him out for six weeks.
Mo Salah went through the match to score a whopping three goals. There wasn’t much Bournemouth could do against him as the team were seemingly already looking downtrodden by the end of the first half. Steve Cook’s own goal really appeared to finish them off leaving the game fully in Liverpool’s hands. No one could deny the hattrick was well earned, Salah fought off near half of the Bournemouth squad on his own for that third goal. Finish 4-0 away isn’t too bad for Liverpool.
The city of Bournemouth has just been annexed by Mo Salah. You’re his now. pic.twitter.com/s6LfMafDIk

How many clean sheets for the fella with the long arms? 14? Unreal mate. What a fucking side we are now. Put all them “Klopp can’t make the defence work” bellends a kip. We’re on the fucking March

Keita and Fabinho are super fit for this hectic Christmas period. Klopp is a tactical genius

Some day maybe some day in football they will create a position that James Milner can't play. But today is not the day. Super human and joins the 500 club

Just six goals conceded in our first 16 league games. We've gone, pretty quickly, from being handicapped by our defence to possessing the best back line in the league. Van Dijk's played a huge, huge part in that. #LFC

Alisson is genuinely responsible for at least 10 points this season by himself. Phenomenal play and worth every penny so far.
