A GW that will go down in history - A Salah blank in a 9-0 Liverpool win.
To rub salt into the wounds, Salah had the second best xGi in the match after Firmino yet was outscored by 10 players on the field 😳

Post-match, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp gave his view on the proceedings.
"Very good. We wanted to show a reaction. Be ourselves. Getting to be the best version of ourselves. We play a specific way.
"We scored wonderful goals. The game settled and we kept scoring. It was about keep going. Not to humiliate Bournemouth, we couldn’t respect them more. It’s about putting the opponent under pressure. I could bring on the kids, they deserve it so much. Harvey is a special player, wonderful goal. Everything was perfect pretty much."
"It's important to get it off the chest and play football. Wednesday [against Newcastle] will be different. Today the mix of great weather and fantastic football, we don’t have that often at Liverpool so we should cherish it.
"At least we don’t have to answer the question anymore [about not winning]. A really good day for us. We won’t get carried away.
"If we want to be successful in this league we have to show consistency. That’s what we have to do now. That used to be our strength. We’ll watch Newcastle tomorrow and see what we can do against them."
Liverpool right-back and goalscorer, Trent Alexander-Arnold, was also full of praise for his side's performance.
"We took our chances today. We started really well. That’s what we needed to do after Monday. Our aim was to come out of the blocks. We played on the atmosphere here today. We were on the front foot from the first kick.
"It was an outstanding game, an exceptional performance.
