      Pre-Match: Bournemouth V Liverpool 21st Jan 16:30
      Jan 19, 2024 08:31:26 am


      Bournemouth’s great run to finish 2023 made its way into 2024 when they came from 2-0 down to beat Queens Park Rangers 3-2 in their FA Cup third-round tie. Andoni Iraola’s men will now aim to begin this year's Premier League in similarly positive fashion, having won an incredible six of their last eight completed top-flight matches (D1, L1).

      Those 19 points were the most that any Premier League outfit secured in that period - one more than upcoming opponents Liverpool. However, that’s about the only aspect where Bournemouth have got the better of their visitors this season as they aim to avoid losing a third game against them in 2023/24 after defeat in the league and EFL Cup. Confidence of doing so is bound to be low considering the Cherries have lost each of their nine Premier League encounters against teams starting the day as table toppers.

      Still, Liverpool will be wary of their hosts going unbeaten in their fifth straight home league match (W3, D1), underlining that a ninth win in ten league H2Hs isn’t a certainty (L1). The Reds have looked particularly menacing recently though, having begun the year with a victory in each of the three domestic competitions.

      At the start of that streak was a record-breaking 4-2 triumph over Newcastle United as Liverpool amassed an xG of 7.27 according to Opta - the highest such figure by a side in a Premier League game since the statistic was first used in 2010/11! Mohamed Salah - now on international duty - helped them over the line in that Newcastle game, but Liverpool fans may not miss him as much as they would have feared, as they’re interestingly unbeaten in the ten top-flight matches he’s missed since joining the club (W7, D3).

      Players to watch: Dominic Solanke will look to haunt his old employers by becoming the first Bournemouth player to net in four consecutive Premier League home games.

      Liverpool may gift Luis Díaz a 50th Premier League outing in a fixture he seems to enjoy, having scored three times in his two previous appearances against Bournemouth.

      Hot stat: Liverpool substitutes have contributed 30 goal involvements in all competitions this term - the most of any Premier League side.

      I'd go with Diaz on the right, Jota left and Gakpo in false 9 tbh mate. If nunez starts I'd put him left, Diaz right and Diogo central.

      Just need to get out of there with 3 points anyway we can. We can't afford a slip up before city come to anfield.

      You're right, we need every point available but with injuries and international duties, we're thin on options.

      That's what I'm worried about. Hoping Dom might be at least on the bench here if not ready to start. Klopps presser will be interesting today.

      Jürgen Klopp does not expect any of our injured players to be back in time for Sunday. Unfortunately.

      Possibly aye. Although he is better in MF now I think. Could mean Jones & Harvey in MF, cos Grav has been pretty hit and miss

      Only reason Elliott should be anywhere near front 3 is if Bradley is bombing on behind him

      Just as well, sold too early. Much better player than we thought. We need to be sharp and energetic. Very tight hard fought match in the offing, will need bout 14 players to beat them.

      1-2

      And with Tierney we will need to score 5 to score 2. Something tells me he will cause us alot of issues again.
