Salah rejects MOTM award to pay tribute to Milner

Mohamed Salah scored a hat-trick, while Steve Cook netted an unfortunate own goal to seal the deal for the Reds.

"When I came in everyone was full of praise for him, but I didn't see him training because he was injured for the under-21s. I have to congratulate him on an awesome career - he deserves this today", Salah told Milner on Sky Sports.

And there was no better reminder that Salah was taking the mickey than his third goal on the south coast, raising two fingers to suggestions of a confidence crisis.

"It is nice. I really like that".

"It is clear that everyone knows about the quality of Bournemouth".

Eddie Howe was not a happy man after watching his Bournemouth side on the wrong end of a 4-0 drubbing against Liverpool this afternoon.

- Mark (@markcollett1) December 8, 2018Shaqiri is one of the most underrated passers in the league. Salah reacted quickest to slam home, but he was helped out by being just offside: everyone seemed to pause waiting for the assistant's flag, but it stayed down. It has a huge bearing on the match. Then we need you, play, and then he had a hard start against Burnley and plays that game and this game.

'We did miss Callum today, ' he added.

Milner reflected this in his own assessment, though the veteran-who turned out at right-back on Saturday-didn't agree that it was Liverpool's best display of 2018/19 so far. What a team we have.

"At times we've played well and others not".

"At half-time I thought we were well in this match".

The German said to reporters: "I think Eddie Howe is one of the best managers I ever met to be honest, so how could I say something different?" It is a tough league.

The 21-year-old left the Turfmoor pitch on a stretcher just 23 minutes into the game, which Liverpool went on to win 3-1.

Another game, another clean sheet for Alisson Becker.

"We had to open up once they were in front, and that produces more chances on the counter-attack".

"My expectations are high, but so are everybody else's. I hope I have more games like this in my career, but I will not take it [the award]".

The victory took Liverpool back to the top of the table ahead of Manchester City's evening kick-off at Chelsea.

"It is always a huge week", said Klopp.

"We only have three days until Napoli [in the Champions League], which is a big one. Let's go home, have food and go again".

The City star could fall behind after being ruled out of action for several games.

Jose Mourinho again rang the changes, but continued to leave Paul Pogba on the bench.

"We were strong, aggressive and intense", said a happy Mourinho.
