Safe to say Liverpool absolutely battered Bournemouth during the opening 45 minutes of Sunday’s game at the Vitality Stadium.
Goals from Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovren and Mohamed Salah gave the Reds a comfortable 3-0 lead heading into the break.
While Lovren showed bravery for his diving header to make it 2-0, Coutinho and Salah’s goals were the result of two stunning solo runs.
Coutinho played a one-two with Andrew Robertson, drove into the box and wormed his way past three players before finding the bottom corner.
As for Salah, the Egyptian darted in behind Bournemouth’s defence before cutting inside as he always does and beating Asmir Begovic. Check it out below.
Salah now has 20 goals for Liverpool and it’s no exaggeration that he just keeps getting better and better with every game he plays.
Indeed, the £36.9 million Jurgen Klopp splashed to sign the 25-year-old in the summer now looks like an absolute bargain.
And it would appear even Salah’s teammates can’t believe how good he is judging by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s reaction to his goal.
In the video below, the Ox congratulates his teammate and then hilariously shakes his head as he walks away, blowing out his cheeks.

Every Liverpool fan can relate to how Oxlade-Chamberlain reacted to Salah’s goal.
Roberto Firmino later added a fourth goal with his head to secure an emphatic 4-0 win for his side, which sets them up perfectly for Friday’s trip to Arsenal.
Victory also means they’re back up to fourth, rising above the Gunners and Burnley to within four points of third-placed Chelsea.
