Reds talisman Mohamed Salah got himself on the scoresheet yet again with a wonderful looping header - his 40th in all competitions this season - prompting BT reporter Des Kelly to ask the England worldwide about the Egyptian.
Defeat for Spurs handed Chelsea a glimmer of hope in the fight for Champions League places after they came from 2-0 down to beat Southampton 3-2, but Liverpool strengthened their position in the top four as Mohamed Salah scored his 40th goal of the season in a routine 3-0 win over Bournemouth.
The former Roma man bagged his 40th goal, and 30th of the Premier League campaign, against Watford on Saturday afternoon, leaving him just one short of equalling the record for most goals in a 38 game Premier League season.
The Reds avoided a case of "after the Lord Mayor's show" by following up their progression to the Champions League semi-finals earlier in the week with a 3-0 victory over the Cherries at Anfield.
Mohamed Salah insists that he "does not care" about personal accolades as he is instead exclusively focused on helping Liverpool to win the Champions League. "Now we still have four (Premier League) games and they have five or six games so I have to think about my games and we see". "I'm sure he'll keep doing that for the rest of the season".
"Second-half I though we improved greatly, I thought we were well in the game until a brilliant second goal from their perspective kills the game".
"You won't see a better collective team goal this week".
Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has insisted that he would happily trade in the personal honours heading his way in exchange for Champions League success.
Sadio Mane opened the scoring in a dominant first half, before goals from the other bad twosome, Salah and Firmino, made sure of the victory in the second half.
But can he break Rush's record of 47 set back in the 1983-84 season? "Hopefully they all stay healthy and then we know we can play good football but we need a little bit of luck because we don't have 25 players in the squad any more".
There was still time for Roberto Firmino to add to Liverpool's tally with a late third goal, cutting in from the left and firing a low right-footer past Begovic after collecting a pass from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
"We played well and created many chances, scored three goals and it was well deserved".
On Ake, Howe said; "I thought Nathan Ake and Steve Cook individually performed very well, in some tough situations against some very good players, they defended their one vs one duels very well". I try to score every game to help the team.
