Six minutes later Dejan Lovren met Roberto Firmino’s acrobatic cutback with a diving header.

Jermain Defoe hit the post for the hosts but Salah made it 3-0 on 44 minutes after weaving his way in from the right for his 20th goal in 26 matches.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hit an upright for Liverpool before Firmino headed in the Reds’ fourth from Coutinho’s 66th-minute cross.

The win lifts Liverpool a point above Arsenal in fourth place. AFC Bournemouth slip to 16th.
