Mohamed Salah scored his 30th goal of the Premier League season on Saturday in a routine 3-0 win for Liverpool over Bournemouth.
Sadio Mane gave the hosts an early lead after a blistering start، but despite a barrage of chances، Bournemouth survived until half-time with the one-goal deficit.
Salah doubled the lead after the break، and while the Cherries had a late push for a goal، the Reds got on the board again through Roberto Firmino. The Egyptian’s 40th goal of the most prolific debut season in Liverpool history came 68 minutes into the 3-0 victory over Bournemouth. Salah had actually appeared to be toiling in his effort to reach the milestone here، squandering several chances before meeting the outstanding Trent Alexander-Arnold’s perfectly judged cross. Mohamed Salah has become the 1st African player to reach 30 PL goals in a single season (Didier Drogba was the previous highest African scorer with 29 in 2009-10)
