Liverpool beat Bournemouth 3-0.
And Salah scored the third goal.
Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is finally back to !00% fitness, according to manager Jurgen Klopp. The Egypt international scored the final goal of Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Bournemouth as they clocked up their 15th victory out of 16 Premier League fixtures this term.
It was Salah’s 63rd strike in his 100th Premier League appearance, and only three players – Alan Shearer (79), Ruud van Nistelrooy (68) and Sergio Aguero (64) – have bettered that tally in their first century of games. Salah had been struggling with an ankle problem since a clash with Leicester City’s Hamza Choudhury back in October, but Klopp is confident the player is now fully fit.
“He looks now 100 per cent,” Klopp said in his post-match news conference after the win over the Cherries. “It is long ago that he got that knock, but you carry things like this with you when have game after game after game. Mo was absolutely strong.”
Meanwhile, Klopp also urged his Liverpool defence to follow up their first clean sheet in 14 games in all competitions with another when they play in a crunch Champions League match next week. The European champions head to Salzburg, where they know a point will be enough to return to the last 16.
