Liverpool demolished Bournemouth 4-0 to climb back to the interesting zone, displacing another fan of the area Arsenal to 5th.
After being disappointed by the cross bar for denying his free kick from becoming a goal, Phillip Coutinho finally opened the scores at the 20th minute before Dejan Lovren doubled the lead at the 26th minute.
Liverpool season wonder kid Mohammed Salah scored the 3rd goal whereas another Brazilian Roberto Firmino sealed and stamped it at the 66th minutes.
The win which not only elevates Liverpool ahead of Arsenal but creates a point difference with the gunners could have ended with more goals if not for former Gunners midfielder Oxlade Chamberlain’s shot hitting the wood work.
Before Salah’s goal, Jermain Defoe made effort to reduce the hosts lead but also experienced frustration as the sticks disappointed him.
While the defeat means Bournemouth has now played six game without a win, the results mean Liverpool has now extended their unbeaten run in all competitions to 12 games.
Liverpool will visit Arsenal next at the Emirates Stadium on Friday 22nd December 2017 whereas 16th place Bournemouth will face another tough time at the Stamford Bridge as they’ll resettle shoulders with 3rd place Chelsea on Wednesday in the quarter finals of Carabao Cup before travelling to Etihad City to face free scoring Manchester City on Saturday 23rd December 2017.
