Liverpool go top of Premier League as Manchester City suffer first loss

Jordan Henderson Liverpool Burnley

The Liverpool star took his Premier League tally to 10 for the season with a stunning hat-trick on Saturday lunch-time, a Steve Cook OG helping the Reds to a 4-0 victory.

Liverpool now face a must-win Champions League game against Napoli mid-week, which will make or break their hopes in the competition that they went all the way to the final in last season.

Only two players have reached 40 Premier League goals quicker than Mo Salah's 52 games: Alan Shearer and Andy Cole (45).

Unsurprisingly, it sparked plenty of reaction from Liverpool supporters and few tweets summed up Salah's performance better than that of Michael Owen's.

Bournemouth host Liverpool in the early kick-off on Saturday (4.30pm UAE), before Arsenal welcome Huddersfield Town, Brighton & Hove Albion head to Burnley, and Southampton travel to Cardiff City.

Real Madrid vs Melilla: What Scolari said after Copa del Rey match
Mariano limped off the pitch soon after, and Madrid finished the game with 10 men. We train hard so that everyone is at their best and focussed.


"When you look at it and say "you'd be unbeaten at the start of December", you [think] you'd be at the top of the league - but we're not".

"My expectation was very high, but I know everyone's expectations for me are also very high. Six weeks for us is massive, I can't even count the games in that period, but that means as well that he will be back for a big part of the season still and that's good".

Salah was awarded the man of the match award afterwards, but decided against receiving it - instead handing it to team-mate James Milner who celebrated his 500th Premier League game at Bournemouth.

It put them a point clear of Manchester City at the summit on 42 points, though Pep Guardiola's men have the chance to regain top spot later when they visit Chelsea.

Meanwhile, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Salah. But when you've players of Mo's quality, he can win you a game on his own and he turned that game day.

Ocasio-Cortez Calls on D.C. to Pay Higher Wages for Staffers
In a fiery series of tweets, Ocasio-Cortez shamed lawmakers for not doing enough to ensure interns are paid a workable wage across the board.


I know I could probably draw the goals we conceded, but we let Bournemouth come back in the game, that's completely different.

Salah's second and third were pure class from the Egyptian. Nobody knows what that means, this league is so hard to play.

After an even opening, Bournemouth went mightily close to the first goal, as David Brooks was released into the left side of the penalty area and Alisson stopped the shot squeezing inside his near post.

The result was in no question when the brilliant Robertson's cross towards Mane's direction was met unwittingly by Cook, who saw the ball enter the back of the net past his own keeper.
