Liverpool – Bornemouth
Liverpool welcomes AFC Bornemouth in a game from the 34th round of the English Premier League. Let’s have a look at this clash at the legendary Anfield Stadium.
Liverpool are in high mood after eliminating Manchester City from the Champions League. The Reds qualified for the 1/2-finals of the competition and they are very close to reaching the final. They won twice against City and they showed everyone that they are still a true force in European football.
In the Premier League Liverpool are 3rd at the moment with 67 points. They are on par with the 4th Tottenham, but they have a game more than the Londoners. So far Liverpool’s record in the Premier League shows 19 wins, 10 draws and 4 defeats.
In their last five games in the league, Jurgen Klopp’s boys won three times, made one draw and suffered one defeat against Manchester United at the Old Trafford.
Liverpool started the season with hopes of winning the title, of course, but right now they will have to satisfy with a place in the Top 4.
AFC Bournemouth are 11th in the Premier League with 38 points won. They have a record of 9 wins, 11 draws and 13 defeats. In their last five games Bournemouth won just once, made three draws and suffered one defeat.
The season is good for Bournemouth. In the beginning of the campaign they were in a troubled situation, but after that they won enough points to feel safe right now.
Liverpool are the heavy favourite here, of course. Especially at the Anfield. Klopp’s boys are feeling really energized after beating Manchester City in the Champions League, so they shall show it against Bournemouth as well. The away team could hardly oppose to Liverpool, but who knows – maybe the Reds will be tired after playing against City a few days ago.
