BOURNEMOUTH, England (AP) Mohamed Salah scored his first hat trick of the season as Liverpool beat Bournemouth 4-0 on Saturday to equal its club record of 17 Premier League matches unbeaten.

Despite a hint of offside, Salah broke the deadlock midway in the 25th minute as he tucked away a parried shot.

Salah scored again three minutes into the second half in an example of perseverance over play-acting, with the striker refusing to go down under a challenge from Steve Cook before drilling home in style.

Liverpool took a three-goal lead thanks to an acrobatic own goal in the 68th from Cook, who somehow back-heeled past goalkeeper Asmir Begovic when trying to deal with Andy Robertson's cross. Salah completed his hat trick by keeping cool in front of goal after a mazy dribble to complete the rout in the 77th.

Next up for Jurgen Klopp's side is a crucial home game against Napoli for a place in the knockout stage of the Champions League.
