Hat-trick hero Mohamed Salah helped Liverpool trash Bournemouth, as they go to the top of the Premier League for at least a few hours.
Mohamed Salah was the star of the show with a hat-trick as Liverpool thrashed Bournemouth 4-0 away from home to go top of the Premier League for at least a few hours.
He may not be at his most electric yet, but there remain few more decisive players in the Premier League than Mohamed Salah.
He has 10 Premier League goals to his name. More than Harry Kane or Sergio Aguero, Eden Hazard or Raheem Sterling. He’s the division’s top scorer, along with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Since the start of last season, only Lionel Messi has scored more across Europe’s top five leagues.
There was more than a hint of fortune about Liverpool’s first-half opener, as Salah netted from close range despite appearing to be offside.
