The anger showed as they got off to the ideal start and looked to close the gap on second-placed Manchester United.

And Roberto Firmino completed the job moments from full-time.

Which Liverpool players impressed during their win over Bournemouth?

Jürgen Klopp pushed his players to stay "angry" in the build-up to today's 3-0 win over Bournemouth in order to guard against complacency, Sadio Mane has revealed. "Before the game, [the boss] said we have to [show] our quality and be angry because every game is important".

"We played well and created many chances, scored three goals and it was well deserved".

Mane also discussed the exploits of fellow goalscorers Salah and Firmino, with the trio now having netted a combined 82 times this season.

"We are very happy to have Mo and we are going to help him score more goals".

Speaking to BT Sport, the former England worldwide said "I don't think what has happened over the past few weeks will come into contention as the PFA votes were cast in February, and back then City had just won the League Cup, while we all knew they were also going to win the league, so I think he may just take it ahead of Salah".

"It is incredible that Salah has achieved so much and could be the difference between Liverpool winning the Champions League or not - that is how important he is to them", Murphy told BBC Sport.

"When Klopp looks to pick his team for next Saturday's game against West Brom, he needs to make the best use of his squad and ensure that his first-choice front three are fresh and raring to go for the first leg of the Roma tie at Anfield the following Tuesday".
