Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League with a confident 3-0 victory over Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday، Reuters reported.

The win moves Juergen Klopps's side three points above second-placed Manchester City who face Chelsea on Sunday and would return to the top on goal difference with a victory.

After consecutive draws، the pressure was on Liverpool to dispel any talk of nerves setting in and after surviving an early scare when keeper Alisson Becker had to parry out a Ryan Fraser shot in the second minute، Klopp's side looked close to their best again.

Sadio Mane opened the scoring in the 24th minute with a well-placed header from a James Milner cross - the Senegalese forward's fourth straight league match with a goal.

Ten minute later، Georginio Wijnaldum، whose return to the midfield after injury made a noticeable difference، doubled the lead with a gloriously executed lob over Artur Boruc after collecting a lofted pass from Andy Robertson.

Three minutes after the interval، Mohamed Salah، who had wasted two good opportunities in the first half، made no mistake after being played in by a clever back-heel from Roberto Firmino.
The pair combined again in the 76th minute، this time Salah striking the bar with a well-struck left-foot effort.
