Mohamed Salah scores hat-trick as Cherries are picked off by Liverpool

Irene MckinneyDec 08, 2018

Salah managed to score a hat-trick, becoming the first Liverpool player to score an away hat-trick in the Premier League since Luis Suarez against Cardiff in March 2014.

Liverpool now sit top of the league, one point ahead of Manchester City, for a few hours at least.

Jurgen Klopp agreed with the sentiment and praised the forward's honesty for staying on his feet for the second goal after Bournemouth's Steve Cook attempted to make a cynical foul.

Standing next to Liverpool's James Milner, who was joining a select group of players to have made a landmark 500th Premier League appearance, Salah instead handed the award to his teammate. This league is so hard to play in, but 42 points I usually had in April and now it is December.

Bournemouth responded well to going behind without creating much to trouble Alisson, whose most taxing bit of work between the goal and half time came when he needed to race off his line and head the ball clear after Milner's sliced clearance swirled towards his own goal.

The Egyptian scored a ridiculous 44 goals during his debut campaign at Liverpool last season but started this campaign off slightly slower by those standards.

Then, in the second-half, he produced a moment of magic. The third goal as well, how we set it up, that was good.

Following his hattrick, Salah moved top of the Premier League scoring charts with ten goals, level with Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who will play against Huddersfield later on Saturday.

The Reds leapfrogged Manchester City in the early kick-off.

City will have the chance to overtake Liverpool later on when they take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

After this the reds return to Anfield for a crucial Champions League clash against Napoli before Man Utd travel to Anfield next weekend.
