For the first time in recent weeks there was a goal-scoring milestone that did not belong to Mohamed Salah.
Salah is just the third player in Liverpool's history to score 40 goals in a season, joining Roger Hunt and Ian Rush, and the latter's club record of 47 is the next feat in his sights.
Liverpool play West Bromwich Albion in the league on April 21 before the first leg of their Champions League tie, three days later.
"Salah deserves to be crowned Footballer of the Year and to carry off the Premier League's Golden Boot but a bigger picture has emerged that is more important than all of that now".
It is a great feeling, of course it is a great feeling, but in the end I am just happy to score and help the team.
Watch out for tax scams ahead of April deadline
While many Americans enjoy getting a tax refund, others would rather have access to that money throughout the year. It also includes the fourth quarter estimated tax payment normally due on January 16, 2018.
Salah's goal, his English Premier League-leading 30th, increased his advantage over Harry Kane in the Golden Boot race while strengthening Liverpool's grip on a top-four finish.
Speaking to reporters Van Dijk said: "It's good stuff playing against them in training, it makes you better".
A less heralded aspect of the England midfielder's repertoire was also significant as he provided the assist for Mane's opening goal.
Instead the forward reached Trent Alexander-Arnold's cross from the right and guided a header over Cherries goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.
After the adrenaline rush of completing a 5-1 aggregate win over Premier League leaders Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday there was a danger that the visit of Eddie Howe´s Bournemouth might be an anti-climax. I don't care about the rest. "I can not lie - it is in my mind", he explained. "But you can see with the team, everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me", he said. I'm also sure Tottenham's players try to help Harry Kane and also Manchester City's try to help Sergio Aguero'. "We have got five finals to play, after that we will see".
Salah has endeared himself to Liverpool fans with his performances on the pitch and his attitude off it, and this will have undoubtedly made him even more popular.
