BOURNEMOUTH 0 LIVERPOOL 4: COUTINHO SPARKLES AS REDS RETURN TO WINNING WAYS

Philippe Coutinho reached double figures for goals for the third straight season with his effort in Liverpool's win at Bournemouth.
Philippe Coutinho was in dazzling form as Liverpool got back to winning ways with an impressive 4-0 victory over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday.

A scintillating solo strike and an assist from Coutinho lifted Jurgen Klopp's side back up to fourth after successive draws against Everton and West Brom saw the gap to the top three widen.

Coutinho started wide on the left as Sadio Mane was granted a rest under the rotation policy for which Klopp has come under fire and the Brazilian quickly set about ensuring the scrutiny of his manager would be minimal with a fine individual goal.

Klopp this week lauded Liverpool's scouting department for their role in the signing of Mohamed Salah from Roma and they may be expecting further praise after the winger added to Dejan Lovren's header by slotting his 20th goal of 2017-18 home before half-time.

Simon Mignolet - back between the posts in place of Loris Karius - had little to contend with in the Liverpool goal and the visitors were out of sight when Roberto Firmino nodded Coutinho's cross home in the second half, though replays suggested he may have been offside.

Salah, Firmino and Coutinho all made way in the second half as, with victory on the south coast secure, Klopp turned his attention to a huge clash with fellow Champions League chasers Arsenal at Emirates Stadium on Friday.
