A minute before the break Mohamed Salah scored Liverpool’s third goal when he dribbled his way into the box and fired past the Bournemouth keeper, 3-0.
Liverpool continued in the same fashion in the second half and added their fourth goal in the 66th minute when Roberto Firmino jumped highest and steered a close-range header into the net, 4-0.
The Reds took their foot off the pedal after that and cruised to a comfortable victory as the climbed to fourth on the league table.
