How Jurgen Klopp kept Liverpool focussed for Bournemouth match

It was Nathan Ake, playing on the left side of a back three, that had the challenge of keeping Salah quite, the Dutchman doing fairly well in comparison to some more senior defender's that have faced Liverpool's star man this season.

Henderson curled a teasing cross into the penalty area and Mane found a pocket of space inside the Bournemouth area to glance a header at goal which goalkeeper Asmir Begovic parried.

There were further half-chances for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Salah and Mane before the interval, but Bournemouth returned to their dressing room with only a one-goal deficit to contend with.

Liverpool should have built on their early lead and the only surprise was that Bournemouth managed to keep in the match, and keep Salah out, until the 69th minute.

Salah received a very long pass from defender Trent Alexander-Arnold on the play.

The benchmark for Liverpool performances was set 30 years ago. His header was his 12th goal in his past seven league appearances at Anfield and he has now scored for seven successive home games in the division.

Liverpool progressed through to the last four in Europe with a 5-1 aggregate victory over Manchester City, but only after coming through two high-intensity clashes with the Premier League leaders.

Mohamed Salah may have scored his landmark 40th goal of the season for Liverpool, but Jurgen Klopp was also enthused about his team taking their tally to 121 in all competitions.

For all Liverpool's dominance, they only had one goal to show for it in the first half as Salah continued to be frustrated, with Steve Cook's brilliant challenge denying him.

Mane and Firmino both came close to adding a third, while at the other end Dan Gosling fired at Loris Karius, but the only player in Liverpool's attacking triumvirate without a goal would find the target before the end.

For Bournemouth it's just about finish as high as possible this season with their Premier League status all but secured for another season.

The Reds battle West Brom at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, April 21, before resuming their Champions League run against Roma on April 24 at Anfield.

"That is the most important thing for us, that we play as a team, we play as 11 players". It's good and impressive - what a number, wow! "For him, for the boys, it's fantastic and today he certainly didn't look like he doesn't want to score in the next few games".
