The Egyptian scored a wonderful hat-trick but insisted the award went to his team-mate on his 500th appearance

Mohamed Salah refused to take the Man of the Match award after his stunning hat-trick against Bournemouth.

Instead, the Liverpool forward gave it to James Milner, who made his 500th Premier League appearance during the 4-0 thrashing at the Vitality Stadium.

Salah said: “500 games – I have to congratulate him for an amazing career. He deserves it today.

“I hope we can win something together this season, but I will not take it.”

The Egyptian’s hat-trick sent Liverpool top of the Premier League ahead of Manchester City’s clash with Chelsea later on Saturday.

There was a hint of luck about Salah’s first goal, coming from an offside position, however the goals that would follow were superb individual strikes.

Salah held off a crude challenge from Steve Cook, who turned into his own net for Liverpool’s third, to slot away his second before twisting Asmir Begovic inside-out to complete his hat-trick.
