Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

It was his second hat trick for Liverpool since arriving from Roma last summer, but he felt Milner, who made his 500th Premier League outing, was more worthy of the accolade.

The Reds moved top of the Premier League - temporarily, at least, with Manchester City facing Chelsea later on Saturday - by extending their unbeaten start to the top-flight season to 16 games with an impressive display at the Vitality Stadium.

Cook's day then went from bad to worse when he inexplicably backheeled a terrific own goal past his own keeper to make it 3-0 to the Reds. With all the little runs, we opened two gaps and then Joel passed the ball through, Bobby could turn and shoot and Mo scores the goal.

It took until midway through the first half for Bournemouth to begin to grow into the game, with Joshua King flashing one low effort across the face of goal before David Brooks drew a smart stop from Alisson Becker and Andrew Surman fired off target from the resulting corner.

On the other hand, Milner has hailed Mohamed Salah as "unbelievable", and revealed his delight at reaching the 500-game milestone. Striker Callum Wilson scored his eighth goal of the campaign, which ties him for third in the league. We've played a lot of games in quick succession and we keep getting results. "That's massive. It's exceptional, and the boys deserve all the credit for that because they fight for each yard".

Speaking of Milner, Salah said: "I want to congratulate him on his unbelievable career, he deserves it. Let's go home, eat, sleep and recover immediately", he said.

This display was a far cry from the disjointed showing in Liverpool's 4-3 loss at the same ground two years ago, with a clear difference in personnel coming in the form of Alisson and Virgil van Dijk.

"Tomorrow, little session; Monday, little season; and Tuesday, Napoli".
