Clinical Salah sets up Liverpool for big week

The Reds came from 1-0 behind to secure a 3-1 victory over Burnley at Turf Moor courtesy of goals from James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Liverpool fans were confused by Mohamed Salah's celebrations after scoring a hat-trick against Bournemouth.

James Milner started his 500th Premier League game at right-back whilst Naby Keita started from the left in the absence of Sadio Mane, who was on the substitutes bench.

The Reds cruised for much of the game as they looked in total control and in reality the result was never in doubt.

He put Liverpool ahead in the first half against Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon then followed it up with a sensational solo effort in the second period to double his side's lead.

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

The biggest one is undoubtedly at Stamford Bridge, where Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea take on Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

He was caught by the chasing Cook, however he continued his run - such was his confidence on the day - and slotted home in the far corner past Begovic.

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

The Egyptian scored a ridiculous 44 goals during his debut campaign at Liverpool last season but started this campaign off slightly slower by those standards.

Cook inadvertently scored the third by slicing Robertson's cross into his own net with 68 minutes on the clock, before Salah completed his hat-trick in clinical fashion.

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