Liverpool FC and team manager Jürgen Klopp have at least temporarily taken the top spot in the English Premier League thanks to triple goalscorer Mohamed Salah.
The Reds won 4:0 (1:0) at the AFC Bournemouth and now have 42 points in their account. Salah was successful in the 25th, 48th and 77th minute, and Steve Cook (68th) hit her own net.
Mohamed Salah scored his 40th goal in Liverpool FC’s 52nd match with a 1-0 goal and broke a milestone. Fernando Torres and Daniel Sturridge needed 60 and 64 games respectively for this brand. Only Lionel Messi (43) scored more goals in the top 5 leagues this season than Salah (42). The Egyptian with his hat-trick is the only second player who scored a hat-trick against Bournemouth. Before only Harry Chambers succeeded in this feat.
Defending champion Manchester City (41) had the chance to pass Liverpool again on Saturday afternoon. Team manager Pep Guardiola’s team will play at Chelsea FC’s top match.
