Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane added three more to the tally in the 4-1 victory.

"I said today in the meeting if this would be the first day of the season and we would know as much as we do now about each other that would be a flawless world. If you are doing it in training week in, week out, then come the weekend it is going to be natural".

On the win over West Ham, the Senegal attacker said: "I think the whole team played well".

Since arriving in England, from Bayer 04 Leverkusen in 2014, he has gone on to make 162 appearances for the Reds and has been utilised in a multitude of roles, even at right-back under former boss Brendan Rodgers.

That trio of Salah, Firmino and Mane all got on the score sheet, as did Emre Can, but it was Robertson that impressed the most on Saturday.

Do you agree with Neville's 14 players? "In the second half, we gave them too many chances".

Patrice Evra has revealed he needed three stitches following his Anfield return on Saturday - but still "loved" his Premier League comeback.

"It's another point that nudges us towards where we want to be - every one could be vital at the end of the season", said Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe.

"We have a goal to speak about and, as a team, we are going to do our best".

"We had coped with them, so to come out second half and not play in the way we wanted to and to take a step back was disappointing".

Back in October when Liverpool lost 4-1 to Tottenham Hotspur, a top-four Premier League finish looked like a remote scenario. We get soft and forget what other teams can bring to the pitch that stops us in our tracks. "Everything is so tight at the bottom of the table and we need to win those sort of games".

"It is tough, it is hard but we have been playing good recently".

There certainly are some strong characters in the West Ham dressing room determined to get them through this and Collins is one of the strongest.
