Liverpool FC Starting XI Prediction vs AFC Bournemouth

Given what has happened in their recent run of results, Liverpool are probably getting the right opponent at exactly the right time. The Reds had to settle for only a single point in their last two league fixtures, and with Manchester City seemingly now back in top form, they have temporarily relinquished their lead in the title race via tiebreaker.

Because they have a game in hand now on City, Liverpool can get the top spot back with another draw on Saturday at home versus AFC Bournemouth, but they really need a win here to ease the concerns of the base. The Cherries, on paper at least, provide the perfect foil for doing so.

Liverpool have won five of the previous Premier League meetings against the south coast club, with one draw and one loss. The Reds have been especially dominant in the past three meetings, running up an 11-0 goal differential on aggregate in the three victories, two of which came on the road.

Manager Jurgen Klopp said on Monday night that his side will retain their composure down the stretch here. Let’s take a look at who he might select in his first team as he looks to get another three points.

    Liverpool wins tomorrow’s game, although, letting Clyne leave the club on loan this season is unwelcome, moreover, the boys will brace themselves up for the challenge ahead. YNWA.
