Steve Cook's Waking Nightmare Begins With Hack On Mo Salah

Steve Cook's Waking Nightmare Begins With Hack On Mo Salah

The Egypt star was decisive again just after the restart, single-handedly taking the game to the Bournemouth defence and finding the net, before a Steve Cook own goal and Salah's third rounded things off in the latter stages, taking him to double figures in the league this term.

And Linda Henry - who often voices her opinion on social media after Liverpool FC results - was clearly delighted to see Salah help to inspire Jurgen Klopp's men to their 13th win of the season in the Premier League.

Liverpool and Scotland's left-back Andy Robertson thinks that the race for this season's Premier League title race will go all the way until the end of the season.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe said afterwards that he considered Salah to be one of the best players in the world.

"I can't avoid it if people want to discuss Daniel, but on the other side I said what I had to say about that after the game and different opinions are allowed, obviously". I enjoyed the last one the most.

"I don't know many players who would score those two goals. Six weeks for us is massive, I can't even count the games in that period, but that means as well that he will be back for a big part of the season still and that's good".

Liverpool face a tough week ahead - they play Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday with their hopes of progressing to the knockout phase in the balance and Manchester United next weekend.

Liverpool had demonstrated resilience to win on Wednesday against a physical Burnley side whose approach drew an angry reaction from Klopp.

He was interviewed after the game with James Milner, whose task was to hand over the award to Salah, but he turned it down in honour of Milner's 500th Premier League appearance.

"Whatever you do in a football game you have to finish off, and what Mo did was exceptional". "We were very controlled in the first half, scored the goal but I wasn't completely happy with the rhythm changes". I played in enough derbies to know what is at stake.

The Reds dominated possession for the rest of the half as they looked for a second goal, however they entered the break 1-0 up.

On Salah's determination to stay on his feet when he could have gone down under a challenge by Cook before scoring his second...

"We need to focus on our own results".
