"To win the Champions League is huge for everyone".

Salah's goal, his 30th in the league, not only increased his advantage over Harry Kane in the golden boot race, but also strengthened Liverpool's grip on a top-four finish as they re-established their 10-point cushion over fifth-placed Chelsea.

The Egypt worldwide is on track to win the Premier League Golden Boot, while he has helped his side into the Champions League semi-finals.

"Liverpool then have a home game against Stoke and I would encourage Klopp to rest his front three for that one and have them ready for what will be a hard game at the Stadio Olympico in Rome".

Liverpool should have built on their early lead and the only surprise was that Bournemouth managed to keep in the match, and keep Salah out, until the 69th minute.

"What a number. Wow!" exclaimed manager Jurgen Klopp on hearing Salah is the first Liverpool player since Ian Rush 31 years ago to score 40 in a season.

Instead the forward reached Trent Alexander-Arnold's cross from the right and guided a header over Cherries goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

Stagg says he too was traveling late at night on a bus, and in a busy routine. The team jerseys may be different but the message is shared by all.

He said: "Of course it's a great feeling".

"I can not lie - it is in my mind".

"But you know, you can see [against Bournemouth] with the team everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me".

His performances have also seen him become favourite to be named PFA Player of the Year in what seems a straight shoot out between him and Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne.

Ever since they were unceremoniously knocked out of the FA Cup after a 2-3 defeat in the 4th round at the hands of West Brom towards the end of January, Liverpool have consistently been firing on all cylinders, wiping out teams that have stood in their way, including the seemingly infallible Manchester City.

"We played well and created many chances, scored three goals and it was well deserved".

On Ake, Howe said; "I thought Nathan Ake and Steve Cook individually performed very well, in some tough situations against some very good players, they defended their one vs one duels very well".
