Bournemouth welcome Liverpool to the Vitality Stadium looking to secure their elusive first positive outcome against the Premier League giants this season.
A 2-1 home win over Huddersfield Town has brought Bournemouth’s four-game Premier League losing streak to an end, but it was the sixth consecutive competitive match in which the Cherries conceded at least one goal. A disastrous form over the last four weeks has seen the hosts dropping down the table, as they currently sit seventh in the English top tier. Bournemouth’s record against the top five Premier League teams is something that could worry Eddie Howe ahead of this encounter, as his men already lost to Chelsea, Arsenal, and Manchester City, conceding seven while scoring just two goals in the process.
On the other hand, the Reds come into this meeting following a 3-1 road win over Burnley in midweek, which has seen them performing an outstanding second-half comeback. The Merseysiders are still unbeaten in the English top flight this season, having clinched 12 wins while being held to three draws thus far. Moreover, Jurgen Klopp’s men have secure four straight league triumphs ahead of this round, scoring nine goals while allowing one in the process. Furthermore, Liverpool have won four out of the last five visits to the Vitality Stadium, having lost just once during the run.

Gk: Begovic Defense: Steve Cook – Ake – Daniels – Francis Midfield: Lerma – Lewis Cook – Fraser – Brooks Attack: Joshua King – Wilson
Provisional line-up – Liverpool:
