Liverpool's James Milner Makes His 500th Premier League Appearance

Liverpool

Liverpool coasted to a 4-0 win away to Bournemouth in the early kick off today, with Mohamed Salah wreaking havoc on the South Coast, plundering three goals.

A momentous start for James Milner as the Liverpool star records his 500th Premier League appearance, with the Reds set to face Bournemouth.

An absolute class act and a wonderful tribute from Salah to his teammate.

Salah, who is the first Liverpool player to score three times away from home in the Premier League since Luis Suarez at Cardiff in March 2014, opened the scoring in the 25th minute before slotting twice after half-time.

And Lawro is backing a 2-0 victory for the visitors in this one, explaining: "Chelsea made a fabulous start to the season but I have never seen them as genuine contenders in the title race". They play a high intensity, passing game, and with Liverpool's injury list growing, balancing out squad rotation while continuing to remain on the coattails of Man City will be hard.

The Reds now have 42 points from 16 Premier League games, having won their last five on the trot and conceding just six goals all season.

'Does he want to come to Man United?' Inside the small Vitality Stadium, you could hear just how commanding he is.

MF Fabinho, 7 - Nothing flashy, but incredibly important as he continually broke up play in the centre of the pitch. Sadio Mane is a major doubt, but Georginio Wijnaldum and Andy Robertson is back in the reckoning.

He gave Liverpool a first-half lead after Asmir Begovic could only parry Roberto Firmino's strike into this path.

MF Adam Lallana, 6 - He was left bleeding after a nasty clash of heads but did return.
