The midfielder returned to action for the Reds with a goalscoring performance after battling with illness during the week.

Wijnaldum scored a masterpiece in the first half to put Liverpool two goals ahead of Bournemouth after Sadio Mane's opener, while Mohamed Salah 48th minute strike sealed a 3-0 win at Anfield.

Speaking after the game, Jurgen Klopp revealed the difficulties that faced Wijnaldum in recent days which almost ruled him out of the clash and heaped praise on the midfielder.

"Last night Gini was not in the team hotel," said Klopp.

"He had diarrhoea and vomiting two nights earlier so he couldn't come to the team hotel.

"That's the news you get in the morning, before the last session of the week. Then he said after a couple of hours' sleep that he felt really good and could play, but the doc said he is still infectious so stay away.

"I was only concerned today when he scored a goal and everybody give him a hug, to be honest! That was a problem."

The German also revealed that van Dijk wasn't that only player that played ill this week.

"It's the same as Milly's [James Milner] character, but nobody spoke about it," said Klopp.

"I heard some people were critical of Milly's performance last week which is just a joke to be honest, after all the fantastic games he's played.

"Now Gini today, it was obvious that he was very, very good today. And that's how the boys are. Absolutely brilliant."

Liverpool climbed back to top of the League table with three points ahead of Manchester City after the victory.
