Three stunning stats from Liverpool vs Bournemouth

However, he returned to the starting lineup after midweek's assault on Manchester City in the Uefa Champions League.

The Egpytian's 30th Premier League goal of the season, which put him five ahead of nearest challenger Harry Kane in the golden boot race, was not a trademark Salah strike.

But Salah - who faces former club Roma in the semi-finals - stressed that his overriding aim is to help Liverpool win their sixth European Cup.

"Liverpool then have a home game against Stoke and I would encourage Klopp to rest his front three for that one and have them ready for what will be a hard game at the Stadio Olympico in Rome".

Liverpool's terrific trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino made their mark on the scoresheet, with Mane getting the Reds off to a flyer by netting as early as the 7th minute.

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.

Salah has score nine times in 11 games in the Champions League in all competitions this season to help Liverpool FC reach the last four.

"It's also very close, it's just seven goals but let's see", he added.

'I can not lie - it is in my mind, ' said Salah.

"Playing like this is great, it's just great and scoring these goals is really good - 300 is really a massive number, to be honest", said Klopp.

His performances have also seen him become favourite to be named PFA Player of the Year in what seems a straight shoot out between him and Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne.

He also ranks third in the list of the most prolific players in a single season in the history of the Liverpool team, scoring 40 goals in various tournaments.

"Second-half I though we improved greatly, I thought we were well in the game until a brilliant second goal from their perspective kills the game".

"We played well and created many chances, scored three goals and it was well deserved".
