In what were far from seaside conditions, with a blustery wind sweeping through the Vitality Stadium, Liverpool cruised to a 4-0 win, against Bournemouth.
The win takes Liverpool to the top of the table, leap-frogging Manchester City, although for Liverpool to stay there it’ll need Chelsea, later this afternoon, to get a result against unbeaten, in the Premier League, Manchester City.
Liverpool’s triumph this lunch-time came courtesy of a hat-trick from Mo Salah and an own-goal from the Bournemouth centre-back, Steve Cook.
The big win also increases Liverpool’s goal difference to a very healthy +38, ten more than Manchester City.
The clean-sheet means that Liverpool, when it comes to the Premier League, have conceded just six goals.
The Red Machine is purring nicely as we head towards a crucial midweek Champions League game against Napoli, a game Liverpool must win by at least two goals to reach the last 16 of the competition.
