Salah was deployed in a central role against Bournemouth and opened the scoring after 25 minutes, although he did appear to be offside for the first goal.
Goalkeeper Asmir Begovic could only parry Roberto Firmino's shot, and Salah reacted quickly to slot it home.
Goal's Neil Jones said he was offside:
There were no debates at all about Liverpool's second goal. The Egypt international finished clinically after managing to stay on his feet after a challenge by Steve Cook.
Cook then managed to turn Andy Robertson's cross past his own goalkeeper for Liverpool's third before Salah tapped home the fourth after a brilliant run at the Bournemouth defence.
The Liverpool forward refused to accept the Man of the Match award after the win, instead giving it to team-mate James Milner:

It was a convincing win for Liverpool which moved them top of the table, and Manchester City were unable to respond at Stamford Bridge.
Guardiola's side enjoyed the better of the first half, but both Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling were guilty of missing chances for the visitors.
They were made to pay for their profligacy in front of goal. Eden Hazard found Kante in the penalty area, and he blasted home the opening goal after 45 minutes.
Sky Sports Statto noted how it was Chelsea's first shot:
The goal gave Chelsea confidence, and they improved after half-time. Luiz secured the three points on 78 minutes when he headed home Hazard's corner.
Opta noted Guardiola's record against Chelsea:
It was a deserved win for Chelsea and a good response to their surprise defeat at Wolves. The results mean Liverpool remain the only undefeated team left in the top flight.
