LIVERPOOL (AP) – Mohamed Salah has put aside speculation about his future and delivered Liverpool’s dominant 3-0 victory over Aston Villa on Sunday as Jurgen Klopp’s team took three consecutive Premier League victories.

Salah, who reportedly received a £150m ($188m) offer on Friday from Saudi side Al Ittihad, scored in the 55th minute to end the scoring at Anfield as Liverpool scored another one win after beating Bournemouth and Newcastle.

Dominik Soboslai opened the scoring three minutes later before Villa striker Matt Cash accidentally kicked the ball into his own net in the 22nd minute after Uruguay’s Darwin Nunez hit the post.

Liverpool remain unbeaten with 10 points from four matches before the international break. Supporters are hoping that when the Premier League resumes in two weeks, Salah will still be at the club.

As the Saudi transfer window closes until Thursday, Al-Ittihad could still make a bigger offer for Salah, the Egyptian star who is the most famous Arab player. Liverpool insist the 31-year-old striker is not for sale, but they can test his resolve.

Salah has scored two goals this season and Liverpool’s attack has been brilliant, with seven goals scored in their last three games.

Odsonne Edouard scored twice as Crystal Palace beat Wolverhampton 3-2 on Sunday to give the team their second Premier League win of the season.
