LIVERPOOL V BOURNEMOUTH MATCH PREVIEW

Home » LIVERPOOL V BOURNEMOUTH MATCH PREVIEW

Liverpool are suffering the consequences of a fixture-congested season, but can be backed to get back to winning ways when hosting Bournemouth here.

Premier League 2019/2020
Date: Saturday 7th, March
Kick-off: 13:30 pm
Venue: Anfield
TV Channel: BT Sport

Liverpool’s 2-0 loss to Chelsea in the FA Cup in midweek, the third in their last four in all competitions, all but put paid to their hopes of emulating Manchester United’s 1999 Treble winning campaign, and has even put their chances of mounting a comeback in the other cup competition they are still involved in utter jeopardy.

The defeat came off the back of the humiliation at Watford last weekend, one which not only ended their unbeaten run in the top flight, but as well consigned them to their first league loss since January 2019, when they came off second best to Manchester City.

They had failed to find the net across all of their recent three losses, conceding an average of 2.00 goals per game in their last four games, a stat which should worry Jurgen Klopp.

Bournemouth, meanwhile come into this one occupying the first of the drop zones, having failed to win any of their last three league games.

They were whiskers away from claiming a big scalp versus Chelsea last time out but for Marcos Alonso’s double after Jefferson Lerma and Joshua King scored two quick second-half fire goals in the 2-2 draw.

History in this fixture is not on their side however, and including the reverse fixture which ended 3-0, the last five competitive meetings between them and Liverpool have seen them lose all by a combined scoreline of 17-0!

Team news

Liverpool

The absence of skipper Jordan Henderson has been very telling in recent weeks, and the Reds still have to make do without him here.

Xherdan Shaqiri, Naby Keita and Nathaniel Clyne are still all out.

Bournemouth

Harry Wilson will not suit up against parent club.

Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld, David Brooks, Charlie Daniels, Chris Mepham and Lloyd Kelly all miss out for the Cherries.

Team form

Liverpool have suffered a significant dip in form and will go all out for the points here. Liverpool’s last five league games (WWWWL)

Bournemouth suffered back-to-back league losses before the draw with Chelsea and haven’t really looked convincing enough recently. Bournemouth’s last five league games (WWLLD)

Suggested bets

Liverpool have not been abysmal but nothing have seemed to work for them in a couple of their recent games. But this one should prove to be different. While I expect them to continue their dominance over Bournemouth here, they are short on price for an outright win (1/4) but backing them to win at halftime/fulltime is 5/6 and is better on value.

Mohammed Salah has find the net in all five of Liverpool’s last five matches with Bournemouth, and I think the Egyptian should also be on song yet. He is 8/11 to score anytime, and 11/4 to open the scoring.
