Team News

Bournemouth
Liverpool
  • Lewis Cook has been ruled out for six-nine months after he ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament against Huddersfield on Tuesday.
  • With Dan Gosling also ruled out for Bournemouth, Andrew Surman will start in central midfield alongside Jefferson Lerma.
  • Eddie Howe will have to assess the fitness of his players after surviving a second half onslaught against Huddersfield in midweek.
  • Joseph Gomez suffered a fracture to his lower left leg in Liverpool's 3-1 win over Burnley on Wednesday and is sidelined for up to six weeks.
  • Andrew Robertson and Sadio Mane missed the midweek match through injury and remain doubts here. With their crucial final Champions League group game next week, Jurgen Klopp will take no risks with the latter.
  • With Gomez sidelined for the rest of 2018 and Dejan Lovren still sidelined with concussion, Joel Matip will retain his place in the starting XI.
  • Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah were dropped to the bench against Burnley and will be considered from the start this weekend.

Prediction

  • Liverpool could finish the weekend top of the Premier League, as current leaders Manchester City are away to Chelsea on Saturday evening.
  • Bournemouth's four-game losing streak came to an end in midweek, although they were forced to survive a second-half onslaught against Huddersfield.
  • Liverpool have scored seven unanswered goals against the Cherries in the last two encounters but should expect a more difficult contest on Saturday.

  • the world best winger is back

  • When looserpool will lose ? i hope they will be knock out in CL against Napoli

  • @Cannavaro69 keep burning fraud

  • first goal is offside and last goal is is foul........they really want liverpool to win the league this season ( take a look at their prvious matches)?????????

  • @ClassicGon Previous matches like against Arsenal when we drop a certain 2 point because our goal was incorrectly ruled out for offside? Or vs Burnley when we went 1-0 down thanks to an offside goal?

  • @ClassicGon Would still be 2-0 even if those had been disallowed.

  • I almost forgot, well, unfortunate set piece for Cook, but on the other side it's seldom to watch an own goal by player's heels. So mixed emotions :S

  • Salah MOTM! Magnificent 3rd goal!! Also nice to see him regarding his self confidence.Reds need him at top form for next Tuesday agaist Napoli.

  • Salah is amazing player.

  • OMG! Man City is down to 2 league position & Liverpool is top of the points table. Real Salute to the Reds! Sorry for now man in difference. All the best M0. Best of lucks for CL night. I am awaiting to see fiery MO Salah. Finally best of lucks for whole Liverpool fans, players, managements & haters.

  • Fantastic goal for Salah to get his hatrick..top scorer in the premier league now.

  • @spectre08 he has 10, auba has 10 too. i have feelin auba will score today and will be definetly first on list.

  • @stefanm At the moment of writing Salah is top along with aubameyang..just stating a fact

  • @stefanm And that is important why ?

  • @neumi17 Cos he is paid a lot of money to score goals and the fact that he is scoring justifies his wages

  • What a great own goal. Absolutely magnificent to see

  • Lallana whyyyy?

  • TAA ON please

  • ‪People saying one season wonder will continue saying so till the end of the season, then will say two seasons wonder and continue counting with Him till he retires ��‬

  • @Mohamed_Shaker Learn English bro

  • @Mohamed_Shaker MO fans coming up only when he scores against weak teams, and they disappear when he plays UCL

  • @tonysaintmarc he was brilliant in last years ucl

  • @tonysaintmarc so Bournemouth became a weak team because Salah put a hatrick, that is funny

  • @Mohamed_Shaker 2nd top scorer in UCL last season...

  • Wtf is going on with Lovren? Is he injured or something?

  • @moo13 Yeah, he's recovering from a concussion. Fingers crossed he'll be back for Tuesday.

  • @TheManInRed Hmm ok...was just wondering coz last I watched he played quite good...seems he's out quite often this season...playing every 3rd game or so. But nvm, thx.

  • I don't get why Milner is playing RB and not Fabinho

  • Home WIN 2-1 mark my words.

  • @zardonic I did but it is not looking good ...

  • @zardonic When ever someone says to mark their words or are100% certain, I am sure they are talking out of their a.s.

  • @zardonic No Callum Wilson. I'll be shocked if Liverpool do not keep a clean-sheet and win 2-0.

  • I expect Liverpool to rest some players for the fateful Napoli match in CL

  • Cherries +1.5

  • I would like Klopp to field a 4-2-3-1 Trent,Matip,VVD, Robertson Fabihno-Wijnaldum Salah-Kieta-Shariqi Firmino If he goes with attack minded plan, I see 0-3 LFC, if not 1-2 for LFC with last 10 mins to be high bloodpressure time.

  • draw

  • 0-2

  • I will be shocked if Liverpool win

  • @Cannavaro69 given how horrendous Bournemouth have been playing, and given Liverpool's quality, why would uyo be shocked?

  • Liverpool can score at least 2 goals.

  • 1-1

  • Lewis Cook's injury is huge blow for Bournemouth
