Liverpool vs. Bournemouth
Venue: Anfield Stadium
Kick off: 5:30PM
Liverpool welcome the visit of Bournemouth in the Premier League having put together an unbeaten run at Anfield that now stretches to 18 league games.
As for the Cherries, Eddie Howe’s men appear safe from the drop and will be hoping to build a late push for a top-half finish come the end of May.
Liverpool return to Premier League action after recording a memorable 5-1 aggregate win over Manchester City in the Champions League, which has seen Jurgen Klopp’s charges march into the semi-finals of the competition.
Liverpool currently sit in third spot in the league standings, level on 67 points with fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who along with fifth-placed Chelsea, have a game in hand over the Reds.
Central to Liveprool’s success has been Mohamed Salah, who now has 29 Premier League goals this season on his way to breaking a number of outstanding records.
Klopp has a key decision to make whether to rest his key man for the Champions League, or allow him to continue running riot in the Premier League.
Bournemouth come into the fixture against Liverpool having only lost three of their last 16, although at least half of those contests have ended in draws.
The Cherries now stand 10 points clear of the bottom three and a strong end to the campaign could see them push for a top-half finish.
Many of Bournemouth’s problems have arisen when on the road this season, especially in the latter stages of the campaign.
Bournemouth have been unable to win in nine of their last 10 away matches in the Premier League.
Liverpool possible XI: Karius, Clyne, Lovren, van Dijk, Robertson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Milner, Henderson, Salah, Mane, Firmino.
Bournemouth possible XI: Begovic, Frances, S. Cook, Ake, Daniels, Ibe, L. Cook, Gosling, Pugh, King, Defoe.
