Mohamed Salah hits 30 in style as Liverpool beat Bournemouth

Nor did Robbie Fowler or Michael Owen.
The Egyptian winger's dazzled the Premier League with his mazy dribbles and exquisite finishes but this time he used his head, both literally and figuratively, as he headed Trent Alexander-Arnold's early cross over the stranded Begovic to close within a goal of Luis Suarez's record.
But Salah has reached his 40 quicker than either of his predecessors and, with potentially seven games remaining for his team, may yet challenge the all-time club record, now held by Rush who scored 47 goals in a blistering 1983-84 campaign.
"That header was unbelievable".
The second came and it was the familiar shape of Salah wheeling away in celebration in the 69th minute to calm the nerves of the home support and effectively confirm the three points.
"Second-half I though we improved greatly, I thought we were well in the game until a brilliant second goal from their perspective kills the game".
"Impressive numbers", added Klopp.
There were further half-chances for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Salah and Mane before the interval, but Bournemouth returned to their dressing room with only a one-goal deficit to contend with.
Liverpool reached 70 points after a 20th league victory of the season at home to Bournemouth.

Now they only need another six points to book another season in the European elite.
Instead, he picked virtually the same side which dumped out Manchester City on Tuesday night to ensure last season's series of events are not repeated. The boys did fantastic.
"Our creativity in our team has returned, our confidence in front of goal has returned, we have come back a lot late on in games".
Eyes remained fixed on the action, though, and they saw Salah hook another shot wide after dribbling from halfway. However, the Bosnian couldn't keep hold of it and Mane made the net bulge with a powerful strike of the loose ball.
Henderson curled a teasing cross into the penalty area and Mane found a pocket of space inside the Bournemouth area to glance a header at goal which goalkeeper Asmir Begovic parried. He supplied a series of chances. Another was lofted over the bar.
Klopp, who said his team were "like lions", said any initial reservations over Salah - a £34m signing from Roma last summer - had been dispelled.
But there is a reason for that.
"So it's a win-win situation". And then Firmino's persistence brought its reward.
"We scored fantastic goals, although it took a bit too long for the second but we second fantastic goals".
