No player has scored more Premier League goals than Mo Salah this season as Liverpool's hat-trick hero propelled his tally to 10 goals for the 2018/19 campaign in a 4-0 win over Bournemouth, as the Reds returned to the summit of the division.
Steve Cook then got in on the act with a spectacular own goal for Bournemouth to make it four.
Liverpool FC are now a point ahead of Manchester City, who are preparing for their Premier League clash against Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon. I think Liverpool will challenge right until the death.
It took until midway through the first half for Bournemouth to begin to grow into the game, with Joshua King flashing one low effort across the face of goal before David Brooks drew a smart stop from Alisson Becker and Andrew Surman fired off target from the resulting corner. Nobody knows what that means, this league is so hard to play.
Klopp's side then doubled their advantage 3 minutes in to the second half as Salah picked up the ball in midfield and raced in to the opposition box. His third goal was outstanding as well; really, how we set it up and all that stuff was good.
Others lauded his prolific recent form after a relatively slow start to the season, with the striker now level at the top of the Premier League scoring charts with Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Liverpool fans will now temporarily become Chelsea fans as they hope Pep Guardiola's side will drop points at Stamford Bridge.
Milner was named as the Reds' right-back for the clash at Dean Court, with Jurgen Klopp having chosen to bench his only fit orthodox right-back in Trent Alexander-Arnold ahead of Tuesday's Champions League match-up with Napoli at Anfield.
