Liverpool Vs Bournemouth Premier League LIVE Football Score 27 Aug 2022
PREDICTION AND WINNING ODDS
ABOUT THE MATCH
Liverpool is going head to head with AFC Bournemouth starting on 27 Aug 2022 at 14:00 UTC at Anfield stadium, Liverpool city, England. The match is a part of the Premier League
Liverpool will be looking to bounce back from their defeat at Manchester United when they continue their Premier League campaign at home to Bournemouth on Saturday.
The Reds are currently 16th in the table, having picked up just two points from their opening three matches, while Bournemouth sit 15th, collecting three points from their first three games.
Liverpool’s 2021-22 campaign ended in disappointment, losing out to Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title, before suffering a 1-0 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
Jurgen Klopp‘s side would have been looking to make a flying start to this season, but it has been a struggle for the Merseyside outfit thus far, drawing their opening two league games against Fulham and Crystal Palace before losing 2-1 to Man United at Old Trafford on Monday.
The Reds threatened to claim a late point in Manchester, with Mohamed Salah halving the deficit in the 81st minute, but Man United held on to secure a huge three points, leaving Liverpool down in 16th position with just two points to show from their opening three matches.
Liverpool are already seven points behind early leaders Arsenal and five behind the champions Man City, meaning that there is certainly pressure on the team heading into this game, particularly as their next two after this one are against an improving Newcastle United and Everton in the Merseyside derby.
Klopp will not quite be hitting the panic button, but the team’s injury problems are a real problem at this stage of the campaign, and another poor result this weekend would lead to more criticism.
Bournemouth have lost each of their last six Premier League games against Liverpool, including both fixtures during the 2019-20 campaign, with the Cherries last beating the Reds at home in December 2016.
Scott Parker‘s side opened their season with a 2-0 win over Aston Villa on August 6, but they have lost their last two against Mancheste City and Arsenal, conceding seven times in the process.
Parker also revealed during his press conference that Dominic Solanke is pushing to be available following an ankle issue, with the forward expected to start on the bench.
There were a number of changes for the team’s EFL Cup contest with Norwich on Tuesday, but those rested should be back in the side here, with Kieffer Moore expected to operate at the tip of the attack.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Elliott, Fabinho, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Diaz
Bournemouth possible starting lineup:
Travers; Mepham, Senesi, Kelly; Smith, Pearson, Lerma, Zemura; Tavernier, Moore, Christie
