Klopp Liverpool to find consistency | Match Report.

Dejan Lovren's goal was his first for Liverpool since scoring in a 4-2 win over Crystal Palace in October 2016

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp challenged his side to become more consistent after watching them thrash Bournemouth to move up to fourth in the Premier League table.

Goals from Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovren, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino gave the Reds the win and took them above Burnley and Arsenal, although they are still 18 points behind leaders Manchester City.

This result came after Liverpool had only managed draws in their home matches against Everton and West Brom earlier this month.

"It was a very important win as we had two draws in the last two games and both of those games we should have won," said Klopp.


"We need to be really consistent, on track and show all the time who we are and that we are all together.

"I'm really pleased about pretty much everything because the start was serious like it should be. We really deserved it and I enjoyed the performance."

Coutinho, who had earlier hit the post with a free-kick, put the visitors ahead with a fine individual goal and Lovren headed in a second six minutes later.

Jermain Defoe hit the post for Bournemouth, but Salah made it 3-0 before half-time after an excellent jinking run.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also hit the woodwork before Firmino headed in from Coutinho's cross to seal the impressive win for Klopp's side.

The victory extends Liverpool's unbeaten run in all competitions to 12 matches, while Bournemouth have not won in six games.
