Manchester United kept their faint Premier League titles hopes alive with a 2-1 win at West Bromwich Albion, while Liverpool moved back into the top four with a 4-0 rout of Bournemouth yesterday.

"Phil's a Liverpool player right now and he's doing really well for us", said the England midfielder, putting his arm around his team-mate.

Sadio Mane was given a rest by Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp but the other three members of the so-called "Fab Four" attacking unit - Salah, Coutinho and Firmino - played and scored.

Salah took another starring role in the Reds' 4-0 romp over Bournemouth on Sunday and scored his 20th goal of the campaign in all competitions.

He gives us his all every game and that's all you can ask of him.

The circumstances of the incident, which occurred near Gaza's northern border with Israel, were initially unclear. Four other Gazans, including two Hamas militants, have died since the announcement last Wednesday.

Coutinho was also asked about whether his first-half goal was his best ever strike for Liverpool, but focused more on the benefit of getting back to winning ways after successive draws.

"A very high-profile match and we haven't performed".

Oxlade-Chamberlain did the same for Liverpool in the second half before Coutinho curled in an enticing cross that Firmino, potentially from an offside position, ran onto and flicked a header past stranded goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

"He's been the most professional person I've seen all season; he's been top quality from the start and every time he gives his all for the club". "I should have put some fresh legs in there, but they did so well at Liverpool that, I'm a new manager, I wanted to show some faith in those players". They are good - that's why they are at Liverpool - but they need to be consistently good because we are Liverpool.

"We were flat, we never got going".
