Mohamed Salah joins TWO exclusive clubs with his latest goal for Liverpool
Third-placed Liverpool beat Bournemouth 3-0 at home with Mohamed Salah taking his goal tally for the season to 40 in all competitions - making him only the third Liverpool player to achieve that mark in a single campaign.
The Reds drew first blood in the seventh minute.
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.
The Egyptian glanced in a fine looping header from Trent Alexander-Arnold's precision cross in the 68 minute to further the Reds' advantage against the Cherries.
Mane then arrowed wide of the near post and Salah clipped over after pouncing on a loose ball as Liverpool dominated the opening exchanges. 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.
Salah has since gone on to break an awe-inspiring number of records, now ranking third in the list of most prolific players in a single season in Liverpool's history, having scored 40 goals.
Firmino spurned an opportunity to enhance Liverpool's lead when he rounded Begovic, only to have a shot blocked on the line, while Loris Karius was called into action to thwart Dan Gosling's close-range whack after the ball fell invitingly inside the area.
And just before the final whistle Bobby Firmino got another deserved goal in a sensational season for the Brazilian when Oxlade-Chamberlain played in his teammate. "He tried to motivate us like usually and, in the end, everybody was in the right place at the right time to win every ball". We don't need any more incentive than that.
Manchester City can move to within one win of sealing the title later on Saturday should they end a run of three consecutive defeats in all competitions against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.
"It's completely normal that a boy in that situation wants to be top of the scoring list, the golden boot". We come together to win things'.
Asked which he would prefer, the PFA gong or the European Cup, Salah told reporters: "I have no doubt. the Champions League".
"In the first half we struggled to live with their pace, energy and intensity, we rode our luck in that period and we were happy to come in 1-0 down".
"His finish in the second leg of the quarter-final was just incredible and there have been so many moments like that throughout the season".
