Premier League Liverpool vs Bournemouth
Liverpool vs Bournemouth Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 3-0.

With the Premier League title race hotting up every week, this is a great opportunity for the Reds to put some more points on the board and to keep themselves at the front of the chasing pack.

Predictions

With Liverpool in great form at home and Bournemouth the complete opposite, this could be quite a mismatch between Jurgen Klopp’s side and the Cherries.
Liverpool’s home draw with Leicester was the first time they had dropped points at home this season since their 0-0 draw against Manchester City, when Riyad Mahrez blazed a penalty over the bar.

Bournemouth, on the other hand, have a dreadful away record and while Liverpool have a near perfect record in front of their own fans, Bournemouth have only managed three wins away this season, with those wins coming against Watford, Fulham and West Ham.

The Cherries haven’t even managed a draw away from home this season, so it’s going to take a near-miracle for them to get anything out of this one.

Liverpool have a strong record against Bournemouth, losing just once to them in 10 games and drawing once as well, having only conceded seven goals in those 10 games.

The home side will be strong favourites for this game and for good reason, but Bournemouth’s record on Merseyside gets even worse when you see that they’ve never even taken a point off of Everton as well in their stint in the Premier League. A big Liverpool win – 4-0 – isn’t out of the question.

Betting Tips

Liverpool are overwhelming favourites for this clash so an home win carries very little risk while it is also highly likely that they’ll grab a hatful of goals to keep their goal difference healthy. Bournemouth will be intent on giving their travelling fans a rare away win to savour and this is among the betting sites’ most generous prices for this weekend round of action. 888sport have it as 9/1 when combined with the Liverpool win.

These are unfavourable odds for an outcome which is more probable than most fans realise, due to the talent Liverpool have up front and the previous game down by the Seaside when Liverpool smashed four past Bournemouth. Home advantage should significantly shift the momentum in this game and the scoreline being in Liverpool’s favour at the break before the Reds pull away in the second half is a likely outcome, rated at 11/20 by 888sport.

Statistics

Head to Head

These two sides have only ever met 10 times in all competitions, with eight of the games going to Liverpool and Bournemouth only picking up a solitary win.

Stats

  • Liverpool are currently unbeaten at home in the Premier League and are looking to extend this streak until the end of the season seeing as they only have to play two of the top six at Anfield.
  • Bournemouth have a torrid away record but at least it’s not as bad as Huddersfield – who only have one win away – or Fulham – who haven’t picked up a single win on the road.
  • The top scorer in this fixture is Mo Salah, who will be looking to add more to his tally against the Cherries as the Egyptian looks to win another Golden Boot.
  • In their last six games away from home, Bournemouth have scored just twice – against Manchester United and Manchester City – and conceded 18 in the process.
