Liverpool boss Klopp believes Egypt's Salah doesn't need rest

Coutinho also later laid on compatriot Roberto Firmino's goal with a cross as the visitors ran out 4-0 winners at the Vitality Stadium to move back into the Premier League's top four.

Salah is the first Liverpool player to get to 20 goals in a season by December since Ian Rush in 1986, and showed once more against Bournemouth why he is proving to be the best signing of last summer.

Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp has extolled the performance of winger Mohamed Salah, believing the Egypt's global star does not need to be rested despite being a mainstay in the Reds' squad all season.

Klopp surprisingly left out Sadio Mané as he made four changes to his line-up after drawing 0-0 with West Bromwich Albion in midweek. "I'd back us to come back from this".

Nine minutes later they made their domination count with a wonderful solo goal from the same man.

Coutinho scored a wonderful goal for the game's opener in the 19th minute with a low drive past Asmir Begovic after he had skipped past two Bournemouth defenders with the ball from 30 yards out.

Firmino nearly doubled that lead with an effort which deflected wide after excellent work by the ever-dangerous Salah.

Begovic denied Salah at point-blank range after Coutinho chipped through, but finally the Egypt forward bagged his goal before the break. Things could have been different, however, had Jermain Defoe found the net in the 39th - when the score was 2-0 - rather than strike the base of the post.

Yet, despite his red-hot form, manager Klopp was reluctant to single out the 25-year-old for praise.

There was an added bonus, too, when Adam Lallana returned from long-term injury as a 71st-minute substitute for Salah to rousing cheers from Liverpool's fans.

In fact, so far this season, Bournemouth have scooped up just four league wins, while four have ended in draws and the rest losses.
