Paul Merson states his prediction for Bournemouth v Liverpool FC

Alisson and Keita

Alisson and Naby Keita were impressive in the win at Burnley

The win, Liverpool's fifth in a row, propelled Jurgen Klopp's men one point ahead of Man City, who travel to Chelsea in the Saturday evening kick-off, as they maintained their superb unbeaten start to the 2018/19 top-flight campaign.

However, at the Vitality Stadium, he looked to be back to his very best.

The Reds made five changes to their starting XI following their 3-1 at Burnley at Turf Moor on Wednesday.

Then, in the second-half, he produced a moment of magic.

But before his finish, defender Steve Cook nastily caught Salah on the Achilles.

He wasn't finished just yet as he topped off his afternoon with an outrageous goal where he toyed with the Bournemouth defence and goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

It was an act that Liverpool fans loved.

Salah's hat-trick - the first by a Liverpool player in an away game since Luis Suarez against Cardiff in 2014 - takes him to 10 Premier League goals for the season so far, putting him joint-top of the scoring charts with Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Liverpool now face a must-win Champions League game against Napoli mid-week, which will make or break their hopes in the competition that they went all the way to the final in last season.
