Liverpool will be aiming to go on the top of the table by winning against Bournemouth. Liverpool who is unbeaten in the entire season will be the biggest obstacle to Bournemouth.
Bournemouth managed to put a halt to their recent downturn in form in midweek when they beat the struggling Huddersfield 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium, but even with them losing their previous 4 matches The Cherries are still looking like they’re in for a fantastic season.
They sit all the way up in 7th position, only behind Everton on goal difference and even outperforming Manchester United. Their recent defeats have shown a particular vulnerability to them, but there’s no denying how impressive they have been this season.
Eddie Howe’s men have won 7 of their 15 league games so far this season and scored a very impressive 25 goals, but their performances against the bigger sides in the league are where they fall short on occasion. They have lost all 4 of their meetings with the Premier League Big Six so far this season so they might not have high hopes going into this game.
Liverpool survived an unlikely scare in midweek as they were forced to come from behind against a Burnley side in torrid form, but they showed a grit that has been absent in previous seasons to turn that game around and win 3-1.
Bournemouth has lost four of their six Premier League games against Liverpool, with their only win in 13 competitive games against Liverpool coming in December 2016 in the Premier League.
Bournemouth: Begovic; Francis, S Cook, Ake, Daniels; Brooks, Surman, Lerma, Fraser; King, Wilson.
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Moreno; Fabinho, Keita; Shaqiri, Firmino, Lallana; Sturridge.
