Mohamed Salah matches former Reds star Luis Suarez as Liverpool thump Southampton

The Reds travelled to the south coast knowing victory against Eddie Howe's side would see them top the Premier League table, with Manchester City facing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge later in the day.

8 - After a shuffle at Burnley in midweek, Klopp named a more recognisable starting XI and was rewarded with a better performance.

James Milner started his 500th Premier League game at right-back whilst Naby Keita started from the left in the absence of Sadio Mane, who was on the substitutes bench.

Hat-trick hero Mohamed Salah gave up his man-of-the-match award to James Milner on the midfielder's 500th Premier League appearance.

Shaqiri saw a 13th-minute free-kick deflect wide off Charlie Daniels in the wall, before the Swiss created Liverpool's first meaningful chance by clipping a pass over Nathan Ake for Salah.

He's called the Egyptian King for a reason.

If you take the second option, prepare for the bandits to set up shop again, but this time with better defences. Ubisoft dropped a spoiler bomb on-stage at The Game Awards , but the developer's hand was kind of forced.

However, the opener would belong to Salah, who linked up well with Firmino and reacted quickest to bury the rebound after Asmir Begovic had spilled the Brazilian's speculative long-ranger.

After Firmino won the ball back, Salah ran at the Bournemouth defence and finished into the bottom corner.

Despite it clearly hurting him, Salah stayed on his feet and made it 2-0.

From there, it felt like a question of how many more goals a hugely impressive display would yield for Klopp's team.

In the 77th minute, Salah rounded off the scoring, beating Cook for pace on his way to registering his first hat-trick of the season.

But the Egyptian has proven his pedigree by continuing to hit the back of the net. "I have to side with Liverpool for an away win".
