Bournemouth vs Liverpool: Match Preview
Jurgen Klopp’s side are enjoying a return to Premier League form recently and many feel that they still have a great chance of making it into the top four at the expense of Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United.
Bournemouth come into this one bottom of the Premier League table pn goal difference and they are many people’s favourites to stay there, or at least to remain in the bottom three.
Jefferson Lerma and Hamed Traore were both ruled out of the Arsenal defeat with injuries but they are expected to be fit to face Liverpool. There is also a slim chance that Bournemouth could be getting Ilya Zabarnyi, Marcus Tavernier and Lloyd Kelly back from injuries.
Matias Vina, David Brooks and Junior Stanislas will all be out of this one and it will be intriguing to see if Gary O’Neil puts Lerma and Traore straight back into the starting lineup or not.
The injury situation for Liverpool is much the same as it was when they came into the Manchester United game. Thiago, Luis Diaz and Calvin Ramsey are all absentees for the trip down south.
Arthur Melo is also not expected to play any part here as his strange spell at Liverpool continues. Joe Gomez and Naby Keita are doing what they can to recover from minor injuries but they are unlikely to be risked here. Klopp has the Real Madrid game in mind.
