Confirmed: Liverpool v Bournemouth line-ups

Giant Anfield Flag

Here are the confirmed teams for the game between Liverpool and Bournemouth this evening.

Liverpool will be looking to back up their 1-0 win against Stoke this evening, when they play at Anfield for the first time in the Premier League this season.

Brendan Rodgers is likely to urge his side to get onto the front foot quickly, pressing for an early advantage against a determined and gutsy Bournemouth team.

It will be interesting to see if the Reds boss toys around with his team, but whatever eleven players he goes with, the Reds are the big favourites for this game as they look to make it six points from six.

Bournemouth are arguably under no pressure for this game, as Eddie Howe looks for his team to improve after a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa.

The Cherries have it all to do and they will need to defend effectively because there are going to be large spells of this game where the side are forced to sit back and soak up a lot of pressure.

Given a point right now, Howe would likely snap that up but he has to trust his side to try and win the game and bag all three.
