Bournemouth V Liverpool Match Preview And Predicted XI Plus Betting Odds

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp would have been delighted with how the Reds came back from 1-0 down to win 3-1 against Burnley on Wednesday.

However, he wouldn’t have been best pleased with Joe Gomez having to be stretchered off in the first half. The England international will be out for up to six weeks with a fractured left leg.

Andy Robertson was rested against Burnley due to a dead leg, but he is expected to return for the match against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Sadio Mane, meanwhile, remains a doubt after cutting his foot against Everton, but Dejan Lovren could return after illness. Nathaniel Clyne (knock) Dominic Solanke (groin), Rhian Brewster (knee) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee) remain out of contention.

Bournemouth had a morale-boosting win against Huddersfield midweek after four successive defeats. Manager Eddie Howe will be without Lewis Cook who has been ruled out for nine months with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Dan Gosling (knee) and Adam Smith (knee) are also out for the game at the Vitality Stadium.

The bookies have Liverpool as the strong favourites with the Reds 8/13 at BetStars. A draw is 39/11 with Unibet while the best price for a Cherries victory is 19/4 at BetVictor.

Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Milner, Shaqiri, Salah, Firmino

Bournemouth’s Predicted XI
