Mohamed Salah becomes fastest Liverpool player to reach 40 Premier League goals

Fabinho and Naby Keita

The hattrick brings Salah to the top of the Premier League goalscoring charts level with Arsenal's Pierre Emerick Aubameyang on ten goals.

Like many Premier League clubs, Bournemouth have benefited from television money and generous owners to the point where they can spend £20m on Nathan Ake, have Jermain Defoe as their highest-paid player and be rated as the 28th richest football club in the world, according to Deloitte.

"He deserved it today and he's had an fantastic career so I hope we're going to win something this season together but I will not take it".

Perhaps it's harsh to point out that Bournemouth's most notable win this season was against Watford: an excellent win against a fine side, but when facing the teams whose heels they want to carry on nipping at, they have struggled.

New personnel? No problem it turns out! The magic of Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool! Only one player in Europe has more league strikes since the start of last season: Lionel Messi.

But the Egyptian striker - who became the fastest player in Liverpool's history to score 40 goals, doing so in just 52 games - refused to accept the man-of-the-match award and insisted that it be given to team mate James Milner, in recognition of his 500th Premier League game.

"Liverpool never got out of second gear, it was so comfortable in possession".

With James Milner likely to be rotated in with Trent Alexander-Arnold at right back over the coming festive period and English duo Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana looking far from their best of late, there could be a number of real opportunities for "Fab and Nab" to cement their places as concrete starters for the Reds. Replays showed Salah may have strayed into an offside position. "He can win you a game on his own".

It doesn't get much better than that folks!

Champions Manchester City can reclaim top spot with victory at Chelsea later, but Liverpool took full advantage of kicking off first on the south coast to start a big week in the best possible fashion by moving a point ahead of their title rivals.

Gomez - who was hurt in a tackle by defender Ben Mee - is certain to miss Liverpool's crucial Champions League clash with Napoli next week, as well as the Premier League meeting with Manchester United at Anfield that follows.

80 - He has 80 Premier League assists - the same tally as David Beckham.

Things are looking very, very, very good for Klopp's men right now and long may they continue to do so.
