Liverpool’s 3-0 victory over Bournemouth meant they opened the gap between themselves and champions Manchester City to 14 points, and they did it in style too. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mohamed Salah were back on the scoresheet, but it was Naby Keita’s goal that caught the eye most.
Does Harry Wilson deserve a chance at Liverpool?
Jurgen Klopp chose to rest Sadio Mane by starting him on the bench, but the link-up between Salah and Keita made up for the missing section of Liverpool’s formidable front three. Salah managed to pull off a cheeky back-heel which drew in two Bournemouth defenders, allowing Keita to pick up the ball and calmly slot it home. It was his first goal of the Premier League season but Salah’s fourth assist.
The club’s official Twitter account posted a clip of Salah’s flick and fans were in awe at how good it was. Liverpool captioned it “beautiful” and supporters replied showing just how impressed they were by their wide-man.
