Midfielder's sublime lob and goals from Mane and Salah earn 3-0 win that sends Reds three points clear

Georginio Wijnaldum's superb lob helped Liverpool beat AFC Bournemouth 3-0 and return to the top of the Premier League table.

Sadio Mane opened the scoring in the 24th minute at Anfield, heading in James Milner's right-wing cross.

Liverpool doubled their advantage 10 minutes later from Wijnaldum's pinpoint lob after Andrew Robertson had played him through.

Three minutes after the break, Roberto Firmino's flick set up Mohamed Salah to make it 3-0 for his first goal in three matches and his league-leading 17th of the season.

Liverpool ended a run of two draws to move up to 65 points, three above Manchester City, who play Chelsea on Sunday. 

AFC Bournemouth remain in 11th on 33 points.
