Liverpool continued their stunning form on Saturday evening as they beat Bournemouth 3-0 at Anfield, with Mohamed Salah getting himself on the scoresheet yet again.

The Reds were on a major high having knocked Manchester City out of the Champions Leauge in midweek, and were in top form again on Saturday with a comprehensive win.

Sadio Mane put Liverpool in front, scoring at the second attempt after Asmir Begovic had saved his header, before Mohamed Salah angled a stunning header over Begovic from Trent Alexander-Arnold's ball.

Roberto Firmino then wrapped the victory up, driving home at the near post late in the day to seal a 3-0 win, meaning Liverpool remain in the box seat to claim second place in the Premier League.

Salah's goal means he has moved on to 30 Premier League goals this season, re-extending his lead in the race to land the Golden Boot after a controversial week in the battle to become the Premier League's top goalscorer.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane appealed Christian Eriksen's second goal in the 2-1 win over Stoke City last week, claiming he got a touch on the ball, with the official ruling handing the goal to Kane – meaning he moved on to 25 goals this term, just four behind Salah before Liverpool's win over Bournemouth.

Salah is back up to five goals clear of Kane, and Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius decided to joke on Twitter that Salah scored all of the Reds' goals against Bournemouth in true Kane fashion, mocking the Spurs ace as he suggested that Salah actually scored a hat-trick on Saturday.
