With his strike Mohammed Salah's strike against Bournemouth, he became the first Liverpool player to get 20 goals in a season before Christmas since Ian Rush in 1986-87, in what is turning out to be an incredible debut season for him.
As Asmir Begovic fished the fourth goal out of his net against Liverpool, he must have been fighting flashbacks and wishing he had politely declined the chance to voice an opinion on Liverpool's shambolic defending.
'I don't think they have the pride it takes to be a defender,' said Bournemouth goalkeeper Begovic, back in October, as he analysed Jurgen Klopp's team in the aftermath of a thrashing by Tottenham.
He criticised 'communication', 'positioning', 'desire' and 'organisation' before adding: 'They don't look organised, they don't look like they want to defend. I don't think their first thought is defending.'
