Confirmed: Bournemouth and Liverpool line-ups

Bournemouth AFC player huddle

Here is how Bournemouth and Liverpool will line up this weekend:

Bournemouth welcome Liverpool to the Vitality Stadium this weekend for their latest Premier League encounter.

The Cherries are currently 13th in the top flight with 41 points from 33 matches while the Reds are eighth in the table, seven points better off at this stage of the campaign.

Bournemouth’s has been one of the fairy tale stories of the season and under manager Eddie Howe they have ensured they will be a top flight club again next season with relative ease, overcoming a series of injuries that could have easily decimated them.

Liverpool are now developing well under new manager Jurgen Klopp and their recent Europa League comeback against Borussia Dortmund showed just how far they have come since Brendan Rodgers left last year.

Liverpool have never lost a competitive match against today’s opponents and they will not want to start now. That said, Bournemouth will want to get a few more points on the board and a victory here will be a big statement ahead of next season.
