Colombian striker Luis Diaz did it again. In the 3rd minute he opened the scoring as Liverpool thrashed Bournemouth 9-0 at Anfield. He would then score in the 85th minute to seal the Reds' home win, with a masterful performance from all players, although the finishing touch would have been a goal from Salah, who failed to get on the scoresheet all game.

In the third minute, Roberto Firmino got clear of a defender on the right before whipping in a cross, where Luis Diaz was ready to head home from six yards. The VAR checked for offside, but the goal stood, and the hosts wasted no time in adding to their lead. Diaz also headed home with five minutes of normal time remaining, equalling the Premier League record.
