Mohamed Salah’s 40th goal of the season helped Liverpool to a routine Premier League win over Bournemouth and moved them to within a point of second-placed Manchester United.
The hosts made the perfect start when Sadio Mane followed up his own header to prod the ball past Cherries keeper Asmir Begovic.
Salah nonchalantly headed Trent Alexander-Arnold’s pass over Begovic in the second half for his 30th in the league, before Roberto Firmino netted his 25th of the campaign to confirm a fifth win in six games for Jurgen Klopp’s team.
Bournemouth, who did not test the Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius until Andrew Surman’s late shot, remain 11th on 38 points.
