Salah was the star of the show at the Vitality Stadium as he netted three times, while Bournemouth defender Steve Cook also put through his own net.
Klopp told the BBC: “The whole game was brilliant from him [Salah] today – not only the goals. He wanted to help with runs in behind and him scoring three goals is big for him and very important for us.
“It is clear that everyone knows about the quality of Bournemouth. We had to keep the ball and win the ball back as quickly as possible. We did both very often but not always as they had their moments, too, of course.
“I don’t know if it was offside [the first goal], I’ve not watched it back, but we improved in the second half and controlled the game. It was really nice. Salah scores that goal [the second one] and I don’t think many do in that situation.
“The third goal was again brilliant. It is really cool and it helps of course! We played nice football and the players we brought on did really well.”
