In the first half a wonderful piece of link-up play between Roberto Firmino and Salah saw the former shoot at goal as Asmir Begovic could only parry the effort.

Salah, who was marginally offside according to replays, was on hand to slot home the rebound and put Liverpool 1-0 up.

Bournemouth’s players protested but the goal stood, as Salah’s right shoulder was offside. The Egyptian star looked over at the assistant referee to double check he was onside before celebrating with his teammates.

When you’re unbeaten so far this season in the Premier League and everything is going your way, sometimes that is the way the cookie crumbles.
