Salah hits hat-trick as Reds beat Bournemouth to go top

Blow for Man City as Aguero ruled out of Chelsea clash

Mo Salah refuses to take Man of the Match award, giving it to James Milner

The Egyptian struck in both halves of Saturday's match at the Vitality Stadium to extend the Reds' unbeaten start to the top-flight season to 16 games and take them above Manchester City - at least temporarily, with Pep Guardiola's team meeting Chelsea later in the day.

It most recently topped Burnley FC 3-1 on Wednesday, behind goals from James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Salah then completed his hat-trick when he took it around Begovic, took his time, and completed a fantastic afternoon for himself and Liverpool. "It's probably Manchester City's hardest game this weekend so Liverpool have to make sure they win", Merson told Sky Sports.

And during his celebrations, Salah appeared to stare back at the culprit.

"Whatever you do in a football game, you need somebody to finish it off, and what Mo did around his two goals in the second half was just exceptional".

MF Georginio Wijnaldum, 7 - Like Fabinho, Wijnaldum's performance will not claim the headlines, but helped Liverpool's midfield to be incredibly solid.

The result was in no question when the brilliant Robertson's cross towards Mane's direction was met unwittingly by Cook, who saw the ball enter the back of the net past his own keeper.

Beyond that star quartet there's a chasm in the betting with Sterling and Eden Hazard next in at 20/1, so it looks like it could be a four-horse race for the top scoring crown, but Salah's hat-trick today has seen him become a real contender yet again.

But Reds substitutes have scored six times in all games so far during this campaign-one more than the whole of last season.

"Liverpool have got to somehow stay on the heels of Manchester City".
