To be played on Sunday 4th December 2016 at 13:30. Venue: Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth
Odds: Bournemouth 4/1, Draw 3/1, Liverpool 4/6
Liverpool travel to the south coast this weekend to take on Bournemouth in their latest Premier League clash.
The Reds recently reached the semi-final of the EFL Cup while their impressive league form sees them second in the table, just a point behind leaders Chelsea.
In contrast Bournemouth are 12th in the table with 15 points from their first 13 matches.
It is a decent return for Eddie Howe’s men, but they will have to be at their very best to take anything from a free-flowing Liverpool side who have been scoring for fun this season.
In early team news, Liverpool are without Danny Ings and Philippe Coutinho while Adam Lallana is expected to sit out another match with a groin injury.
There is better news regarding Roberto Firmino, Joe Gomez and Daniel Sturridge, who are all rated at 75 per cent to be ready if called upon.
As for Bournemouth, they cannot call on Lewis Cook due to an ankle injury while Charlie Daniels and Andrew Surman should recover from hip and hamstring injuries respectively.
With all that in mind here is how we expect the two sides to line up on Sunday:
- Adam Federici
- Nathan Aké
- Brad Smith
- Steve Cook
- Simon Francis
- Adam Smith
