Liverpool and Bournemouth will lock horns with each other in the Premier League next weekend. The match between the Reds and the Cherries will be held at Anfield and is scheduled to kick off at 3pm UK time next Saturday.


Liverpool are one of the biggest clubs on the planet and are a global brand, and the Reds will be determined to win the Premier League title this season. Jurgen Klopp’s side could not even end up in the top four last season, and the Anfield faithful will want the team to do better this campaign, much much better.

However, Liverpool have not started the new Premier League season strongly. This past Sunday, the Reds played out a 1-1 draw with Chelsea away from home at Stamford Bridge in London in the Premier League. Although Liverpool took the lead, Chelsea came back strongly and were the better team in the second period.

Liverpool need to do better defensively. Chelsea exposed the Reds’ back-line a number of times, and the Merseyside club need to learn from that. Manchester City are the clear favourites for the Premier League title, and Liverpool will have to step up their game in the coming weeks and months. Arsenal are the main challengers to City for the Premier League title, while Manchester United will be expected to step up their game and push hard for the championship.

Team News:

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is likely to field a 4-3-3 formation against Bournemouth at Anfield in the Premier League game this coming weekend. Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz will be the three forwards. Alisson will in goal, while ibrahima Konate and Virgil van Dijk will be the two centre-backs.


Bournemouth pulled off a great escape last season. The Cherries looked set to get relegated from the Premier League, but under then manager Gary O’Neil, they ended up as many as five points above the relegation zone. O’Neil was sacked by the Cherries in June and Andoni Iraola was appointed in his place. It was a decision that shocked many, especially as it was O’Neil who saved the team from getting relegated to the Championship.

The Cherries kicked off the new season with a 1-1 draw with West Ham United at home this past weekend. Jarrod Bowen scored for the Hammers on 51 minutes, and Dominic Solanke restored parity for Bournemouth on 82 minutes.

Bournemouth will be among the clubs expected to fight for survival in the Premier League. It will be interesting to see how the team evolve under Andoni Iraola, who managed AEK Larnaca FC, CD Mirandes and Rayo Vallecano in the past. Bournemouth chiefs expect the team to play good attacking football and to progress as a team on the pitch.

Team News:

Bournemouth are likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Neto will be in goal for the Cherries. Dominic Solanke will lead the line for the Cherries. David Brooks, Ryan Christie and Jaidon Anthony will be three attacking midfielders.

Key Factors to Consider:

  • Liverpool had just 35% of the possession against Chelsea.
  • Liverpool had only 1 shot on target against Chelsea.
  • Liverpool earned 4 corners against Chelsea.
  • Bournemouth had 5 shots on target against West Ham United.
  • Bournemouth had 63% of the possession against West Ham United.


While Bournemouth have a very good team, Liverpool are better and are also at home. It is hard to see anything but a win for the former Premier League and UEFA Champions League winners in this particular match. Liverpool, though, cannot get complacent and have to be on it from the very first minutes.
