On Saturday Liverpool will have the chance to go top of the league. They travel to Bournemouth where the home side will be expecting them and will try to record consecutive victories. The Cherries ended their four game losing streak at midweek when they beat Huddersfield. Bournemouth last six games have seen over 2,5 goals, so regardless of the outcome the home crowd should enjoy fast football with plenty of opportunities.
Bournemouth vs Liverpool Head to Head
In the nine games played between the teams in the Premier League era, Liverpool enjoy total domination. Seven wins for Merseysiders, one draw, and just one win for the Cherries. From the five visits to Vitality Stadium, the records show four wins and a loss for the Reds from Liverpool. This loss is probably the most entertaining match between the two sides ending 4-3 for the Cherries. In the last five games, Merseysiders score at least 2 goals.
Bournemouth vs Liverpool Stats
Before their four game losing streak, Bournemouth were unbeaten for six games, winning five of them. If that is anything to go by Liverpool will not have it easy, as another string of strong showings might be on the cards for Eddy Howe’s men. In midweek they won with just 33% possession of the ball and on Saturday the story will be pretty much the same. England international Callum Wilson is in red-hot form and has scored six in his last eight showings.
Liverpool boost the best defence in the League. They have conceded just six goals in 15 games. On top of that, they have conceded just once in the last 368 minutes of football. After rotating his team heavily in midweek, Klopp will probably go to his starters for the weekend.
Mohamed Salah came from the bench and will be fresh for Saturday. Last season’s “Player of the year” is not living to the hype this season, but a change of fortunes will see Liverpool change their status from title-hopefuls to genuine title contenders. Contrary Allison and Van Dijk will be counted to shut the door on the Bournemouth strikers and keep a clean sheet.
