Mohamed Salah opened the scoring for Liverpool after 25 minutes, before netting his and his side’s second just minutes after the half-time interval.
A bizarre Steve Cook own-goal made it 3-0 to the Reds before Salah completed his hat-trick 13 minutes from time.
“We were not completely happy with the rhythm. We made changes and wanted to do more but there was a lot of good counter-pressing.
“Mo scored a fantastic second goal. He did brilliantly and the fourth one was brilliant, completely calm. Then Adam (Lallana) and (Sadio) Mane come on and we played brilliant football that was exactly as we wanted.
“Bournemouth have had a really good season, coming here, winning in the manner we did was quite special.
“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.”
Klopp praised Salah for being unmanageable for the Cherries throughout the contest.
