Philippe Coutinho's solo stunner for Liverpool against Bournemouth

Adjust Comment Print

"There have not been many times since I became Bournemouth manager that I've felt quite like this after a match".

And in doing so, the Egypt star confirmed his status as one of the most prolific forwards now active in English football.

Mohamed Salah reached 20 goals in all competitions in his first season for Liverpool by scoring in a 4-0 win over Bournemouth that lifted his team into the Premier League's top four on Sunday.

"He's a very important player for us - like the others".

Dejan Lovren doubled the lead with a close-range diving header six minutes later and Salah made it 3-0 a minute before halftime.

"It's not fair to ask those kind of questions, I don't think, but he gives us his all every game and that's all you can ask of him".

The Brazilian scored his 10th goal of the season and his 50th for the Reds overall with a sumptuous solo goal, jinking into the box to slot inside the near post and put his side 1-0 up away at Bournemouth. Back at it again with goal fests.

"Going forward, we have the ability to open doors and score goals", said Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mane's replacement.

From the resulting corner, Lovren dived to head home after Firmino had somehow kept the ball in play.

Begovic then denied Liverpool what would have been a stunning goal when Coutinho flicked a ball over the defence for Salah, who shot straight at the goalkeeper.

Defoe was unable to get the better of Mignolet from the edge of the area and Liverpool had maximum points secured when Firmino ghosted into space between two Bournemouth defenders to head Coutinho's delivery home.

"I am really pleased about everything", Klopp said.

"We could have scored more, but we didn't really give a lot away so it was well deserved and I enjoyed the performances".

"We were flat, we never got going". They are good - that's why they are at Liverpool - but they need to be consistently good because we are Liverpool.
