The Premier League weekend kicks off on the south coast on Sunday, as Liverpool will be looking to record a third straight win. Bournemouth was cruelly denied a point in their previous fixture, but they will need a positive result this weekend to climb out of the bottom three.
Premier League Preview
It has been a historic week for Liverpool, as the Reds would have built a huge deal of confidence after a stunning 7-0 win over Manchester United in their previous fixture. That win has reignited their hopes of finishing in the Champions League spots this term, and they could move up to fourth with a victory on Sunday before Tottenham play their league fixture this weekend.
The Reds have been in excellent recent form, as they have gone five without defeat in the Premier League. Over that period, they have recorded four wins, with their success last weekend likely meaning the most. It was a welcome sight for Liverpool fans at Anfield, as Cody Gakpo and Darwin Nunez both scored braces. Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah became the club’s outright leading scorer in the Premier League with two goals.
Bournemouth remain bottom of the Premier League standings coming into this fixture, as they have picked up just a single victory from their last six matches. The Cherries are one point from safety, meaning that they could lift themselves out of the bottom three with an unlikely win against the Reds at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday. However, no side has allowed more goals in the top-flight this term, which would be a concern.
The Cherries made a dream start against Arsenal last weekend, as they went 1-0 up after just ten seconds. However, they later squandered a 2-0 lead, with the Gunners scoring the winning goal in the match deep into injury time at the Emirates.
Bournemouth vs Liverpool Head to Head
Liverpool has an excellent record in this fixture, as they have picked up seven straight league wins against the Cherries. That includes a 9-0 win from the previous meeting between the sides at Anfield this term. Bournemouth has scored just once in their last seven league meetings against the Reds.
Bournemouth vs Liverpool Prediction
Liverpool will be the commanding favourites to maintain their recent strong run of form on Saturday. Based on their showing last weekend, we expect this to be a very comfortable outing for the Reds, as they move into the top four ahead of Tottenham Hotspur.
