Liverpool boss Klopp hails Alexander-Arnold performance for Bournemouth win

  • Champions League draw: Liverpool to face Roma in semi-finals

What a number we scored as a team in the season - it's insane.

Bournemouth, who did not test the Liverpool goalkeeper Lorus Karius until Andrew Surman's late shot, remain 11th on 38 points.

Egyptian forward Salah joined Roger Hunt and Ian Rush as the only Reds players to have scored 40 times in a single season when he nodded in his 30th Premier League goal of the campaign in a 3-0 Anfield success over Bournemouth.

They had appealed the Premier League Match Centre's call to hand Christian Eriksen the goal, with Kane arguing the Dane's free-kick had brushed his shoulder, and the overturning of the decision prompted Salah to respond with surprise on social media.

Having sealed their progression to the Champions League semi-finals after beating champions-elect Manchester City at the Etihad, there may have been slight concerns that the Reds were still revelling from that brilliant night in Manchester just a few days before.

"Those three have been unbelievable, but this is a team effort", stated Klopp.

Senegal worldwide Sadio Mane says Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp pushed the club's playing staff to stay "angry" in the build-up to Saturday's 3-0 win over Bournemouth in order to guard against complacency. Jordan Henderson, who missed the game through suspension, replaced James Milner - but apart from that it was the same XI.

He added: 'Children were harmed - some physically, some sexually, some were introduced to drugs for the first time'. Thousands of teachers gathered at the Capitol to ask lawmakers to override the vetoes.


It continued to be one-way traffic in the opening 45 minutes and Begovic denied both Alexander-Arnold and Salah before Bournemouth finally threatened.

Yet even that attack was halted by the assistant's flag as Ryan Fraser was offside prior to collecting Charlie Daniels' back-heel and crossing for Jermain Defoe to tap home.

Asked how many goals Salah might have by the end of the season, Klopp said, "Ask him!"

He then showed why he has been so unstoppable since arriving at Anfield as he conjured up a glancing header past Begovic with his back to goal from Trent Alexander-Arnold's searching pass.

Goals from Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino secured the win for the Merseyside team.

"Our lads tried to stay in the game as long as they could and the second goal is probably the one that kills it".
