Salah hits 40 mark as Liverpool beat Bournemouth

14 April 2018

Liverpool have won three of their five previous Premier League meetings with Bournemouth (D1 L1), including a 4-0 win in the reverse fixture in December.

Harry Kane vs Mohamed Salah Another weekend, another goal for Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.

The Reds are high on confidence after knocking Manchester City out of the Champions League and setting up a semi-final date with Italian giants Roma, but must now get down to the business of nailing down a top four spot in the Premier League.

Mane put in a rebound for his 10th league goal of the season, and Salah continued his player-of-the-year calibre campaign with his 30th.

The Reds got off the flawless start this weekend as they broke the deadlock after seven minutes thanks to a clinical strike from Sadio Mane.

Bournemouth's goalkeeper continued to be kept busy as he pushed away a free-kick from Trent Alexander-Arnold and comfortably held Salah's 25-yard curler.

It was Sadio Mane who opened the scoring for the Reds with just seven minutes gone after receiving a smart pass from Jordan Henderson. His balls in from the right hand side posed a consistent threat to Bournemouth in the first half, before one finally paid off as it reached the head of Mohamed Salah.
