Club captain Jordan Henderson also starts for the Reds having missed out on the win over City through suspension, and it will be a welcome return with Emre Can confirmed to be out until the end of the season.

Bournemouth will again be without defender Adam Smith because of a knee problem.

And welcome to our liveblog for the game between Liverpool and Bournemouth.

Victory kept third-placed Liverpool 10 points above fifth-placed Chelsea with four games left, although Chelsea have a game in hand on Juergen Klopp's side.

Pre-match tributes were held on the eve of the 29th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, before Liverpool began on the front foot and Salah toed Trent Alexander-Arnold's pass from deep just wide of the right-hand post.

Henderson curled a teasing cross into the penalty area and Mane found a pocket of space inside the Bournemouth area to glance a header at goal which goalkeeper Asmir Begovic parried.

Klopp's side face Roma in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Goals from Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino secured the win for the Merseyside team.

Mane reacted quicker than the visiting players and was able to steer the rebound into the unguarded net -- thus becoming the highest-scoring Senegalese in the Premier League with 44 goals.

The former will be exhausted after their exertions midweek in the Champions League and since the Premier League is basically done, might not have quite the same energy and passion for this one as they need to ping several goals in.

- Salah is also only the third different player in Liverpool history to score 40-plus goals in all competitions in a single season, after Roger Hunt (1961-62) and Ian Rush (1983-84 and 1986-87).
