Liverpool’s ability to maul teams under Jurgen Klopp has been one of the positive points in our successful season.

The Reds beat Bournemouth 3-0 at Anfield on Saturday with the front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino all finding the back of the net.

As per, Firmino’s goal against Bournemouth was the club’s 300th goal scored under Klopp’s 148-game period.

If the Liverpool attackers have dazzled this season, our defence has been impressive too. By beating the Cherries 3-0, the Reds kept their 15th clean sheet in the Premier League this season. Only Manchester United have kept more clean sheets than Liverpool this campaign.

Much has been spoken about Liverpool’s high-octane style of play under Klopp and the ability to batter teams at will. Mohamed Salah’s name instantly appears on the lips as he has taken the club’s attacking style of play to a different level this season.

The Egyptian’s goal against Bournemouth was his 40th of the campaign across all competitions. As per, Salah has reached that tally quicker than any other player in the history of our club, taking just 45 games to reach the milestone, beating George Allan’s record of 40 goals in 49 appearances.

The jet-heeled winger’s 30 goals in the league make him a hot favourite to win the Golden Boot award this season. He also leads the race for the European Golden Shoe, ahead of Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Mohamed Salah

If Salah has been phenomenal, Mane has been devastating of late as he became the highest-scoring Senegalese player in the Premier League following his goal at Bournemouth.

The former Southampton man netted his 44th goal in the English top-flight to overtake former West Ham United and Newcastle striker Demba Ba.

Generally, games are won in the midfield and Liverpool’s midfielders have performed very well this season. The likes of Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum have worked well in tandem throughout the season.

On Saturday against Bournemouth, Wijnaldum started in the three-man midfield alongside Henderson and Oxlade-Chamberlain, completing 100% of his 42 passes.

According to our club’s official website, the Dutchman is only the fourth midfielder to have a 100% passing accuracy in a Premier League game this season, joining the likes of Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny, Tottenham’s Mousa Dembele and Swansea’s Ki-Sung-Yeung.

Liverpool’s incredible statistics following the win over Bournemouth has stunned our fans. Here is how they reacted on Twitter.

Liverpool youngster Marko Grujic has picked up ankle ligament damage during Hertha Berlin’s 4-2 win over Borussia Monchengladbach, as per Sky Sports.

The Serbian midfielder joined the Bundesliga side on a loan deal and has played four games for them. Hertha are currently second in the competition behind Bayern Munich with 10 points from four games.

Hertha’s general manager Michael Preetz was quoted by Sky Sports saying.

“Marko has managed to make a significant difference to our game in the short time he has been with us, which is why the loss for him personally and for us is very, very bitter.

“Now we will look after him and help him, so that he can play that role as soon as possible.”

The report adds that the midfielder had signed a new deal with the Reds before joining the Bundesliga side on loan and was part of the Serbian World Cup squad in Russia.

Grujic had a huge role to play in Cardiff’s promotion to the Premier League last season and did well in his three starts for Hertha this term.

(Video) Mohamed Salah hands Liverpool jersey to tearful young fan after win over Saints



Mohamed Salah got on the scoresheet against Southampton over the weekend but also there was another moment that is being spoken about on social media.

The Egyptian broke his mini-drought as he scored from Xherdan Shaqiri’s free-kick and he also had a few chances to make it two in the game.

The former AS Roma forward hasn’t been at his free-scoring best from last season but is slowly regaining his mojo in front of the goal.

Wayne Dunlop posted a video of his son on Twitter. The child was holding up a sign after the match at Anfield and Salah gave the youngster his shirt from the game.

It is an emotional video of the Twitter user’s son, Lewis, tearing up as the Egyptian hands him the shirt he wore during the game.

Salah even responded to the video uploaded and Wayne was very happy that his son received such a fantastic piece of memorabilia from Anfield.

The Egyptian is one of the best footballers in the world but it is moments like these that ensure the fans love players more.

Salah could have ignored the young fan and walked down the tunnel but he took time out to make the fan happy.

The Reds lead the Premier League standings at the moment, having won all six of their clashes in the Premier League so far.

Jurgen Klopp dispels injury concern after surprise substitution against Southampton



Xherdan Shaqiri

Xherdan Shaqiri started for Liverpool in the clash against Southampton and was instrumental in our a 3-0 lead at half-time.

His shot was turned into the net by Wesley Hoedt for our first goal and his free-kick was slotted into an open net by Mohamed Salah for our third.

It was a little surprising that Jurgen Klopp decided to take the Swiss star off at half-time and replace him with James Milner.

Shaqiri was our most impressive attacker on Saturday as he played an advanced role behind our front three.

However, Milner came onto the pitch and we played with three central midfielders, something Klopp has used to great effect throughout his time at Liverpool.

The German spoke to the club’s official website as he explained he wanted more control in the game and that’s why he took Shaqiri off.

“I said to Shaq at half-time that I had never brought a player off after such an influential time without an injury. He is not injured. But I wanted to control the game and go back to our normal formation. And that helped, we really controlled it.”

The manager further added that it was not easy to make the change, given how influential Shaqiri was in the first half.

Klopp did explain the change to Shaq but playing the Swiss star had an impact on our defence and that was a problem for the manager.

“The only problem was defensively. Offensively, it was a good idea but, how I said, we have to work on that more often. But he was good and I liked it.”
