Philippe Coutinho broke the deadlock with a mesmerizing run before Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren finished a tough seven days on a positive note with a close-range header from a corner. "We gave just the one chance, but that's pretty much normal; I think really well deserved and I enjoyed the performance". "We were the best team".

- Mo Salah became the first Premier League player to reach 20 goals in all competitions this season.

Midfielder Jesse Lingard doubled the lead with a deflected shot from the edge of the penalty area eight minutes later.

After coming in for criticism for his rotation policy of the Fab Four during those last two disappointing results, Jürgen Klopp was effusive in his praise as they returned to their winning ways in smashing four past Bournemouth.

He gives us his all every game and that's all you can ask of him.

Mattis Emphasizes 'Diplomatically-Led Effort' In Dealing With Iran
With U.S. support, a Saudi-led coalition has been fighting the Houthis on behalf of Yemen's internationally recognized government. Adding that, Iran rejects the accusation as, "unfounded and, at the same time, irresponsible, provocative and destructive".

"Liverpool were very good and they've got the players who can hurt you".

Despite increasing speculation about a departure from Anfield, Coutinho has been the ultimate professional for Liverpool this season.

Klopp surprisingly left out Sadio Mane as he made four changes to his line-up after drawing 0-0 with West Bromwich Albion in midweek.

With less than 11 minutes played, Nathan Ake was booked for tugging Firmino down on the edge of the box and Coutinho saw a sweetly-struck free-kick hit the inside of the right-hand upright and bounce away from goal. Nine minutes later they made their domination count with a wonderful solo goal from the same man. Coutinho raced away down the left, weaving past two players with exquisite balance before cutting the ball into the net past goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

Salah's backheel sent Henderson overlapping down the right, and only a deflection off Adam Smith stopped Firmino from doubling Liverpool's lead.

Liverpool added a second six minutes later when Firmino stopped the ball crossing the byline by hooking it into the six-yard box on the volley for Lovren to finish with a diving header.
