    Liverpool stormed back to the top of the Premier League with a dominant 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.

    Sadio Mane scored for the fourth consecutive top-flight match in the 24th minute, after which point Jurgen Klopp's side kicked into top gear to banish the memory of their lacklustre back-to-back draws against Leicester City and West Ham.

    Mane opened the scoring in both of those games as well, but fabulously worked goals from the returning Georginio Wijnaldum and Mohamed Salah ensured there was no chance of another wobble.

    Manchester City will return to the summit on goal difference if they beat Chelsea on Sunday. Such fine margins being at play mean Klopp might have liked to see a few more added to their tally as his team cut Bournemouth apart at will.
     
  2. Virgil van Dijk has made more tackles without being dribbled past in the Premier League this season than any other player.
    23 tackles and not one person made it out the other side.
    So also, Mohamed Salah has never played three consecutive Premier League games for Liverpool without scoring. Another 'drought' ended.
