Mohamed Salah scored a superb hat-trick as Liverpool climbed above Manchester City to the top of the table with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium this afternoon.

The Reds opened the scoring midway through the first half as Salah pounced to fire home from close range after Asmir Begovic could only parry Roberto Firmino’s long-range effort straight in to his path.

Bournemouth pushed for the equaliser but Liverpool doubled their advantage shortly after the break and it was a superb solo effort from Salah as he ran through the hosts defence before finding the bottom corner from 18 yards to make it 2-0 in the 48th minute.

Any hope of a Bournemouth comeback in the second half was ruled out when defender Steve Cook turned an Andrew Robertson cross in to his own net for 3-0 in the 68th minute.

Salah then capped the perfect afternoon by bagging his hat-trick with the Egyptian international keeping a cool head to bamboozle the Bournemouth defence before slotting home for 4-0 in the 77th minute.

The victory sees Liverpool move one point clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table ahead of their trip to Chelsea this evening.
