Liverpool vs Bournemouth Prediction and Betting Preview 07 Mar 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
Liverpool had looked totally invincible since the start of the campaign even into the New Year, dragging every Premier League side they encountered to the cleaners, save for Manchester United, who held the Reds to a draw.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 29
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool)
However, they were unable to replicate such envious unbeaten run in the UEFA Champions League, with Italian outfit Napoli getting the better of Jurgen Klopp’s side in the group phases of the competition.

With the Reds strolling to Premier League success, a loss to Atletico Madrid in Europe kickstarted a disappointing downfall of the Kop. Ever since that night in Madrid, Liverpool have been spiraling downwards. 

In fact, they are now on a three-game losing streak and concerns are beginning to surface about Anfield. Now, the onus is on head coach Jurgen Klopp to bring his stuttering Liverpool side back on track to keep second-placed Manchester City a good distance away.

With a fixture against relegation-threatened Bournemouth on the cards, the home side will be looking to take advantage of their opponents’ misfortunes this campaign to end their own losing streak. Expect a frantic game at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

Liverpool vs Bournemouth Team News

After a season of winning week after week and breaking records left, right and centre, Liverpool have finally suffered a slump in form since returning from the winter break.

Debate as to whether Klopp's side deserve to be regarded as among the best teams in English football history has been put on hold following a week in which they have seen their hopes of matching Arsenal's Invincibles and Manchester United's treble-winners ended.

Last weekend's shock 3-0 defeat to Watford - a result which statistically ranks among the biggest upsets in Premier League history - was undoubtedly a setback, but one which is unlikely to have a telling impact on the end result of the campaign with Liverpool still needing just 12 more points to guarantee the title.

The Cherries make the trip to Anfield having lost each of their last five away outings and eight of their last nine in the top flight, while no team have lost more games on their travels this season.

Eddie Howe 's side have now slipped into the relegation zone despite faring better than Liverpool did against Chelsea in their last outing, earning a 2-2 draw against Frank Lampard 's side having scored twice in the space of three second-half minutes.

Watford's victory over Liverpool ensured that Bournemouth would end the weekend in the bottom three, incidentally, and Howe will no doubt be looking at the Hornets' blueprint for inspiration of how to pull off a similar shock.

The Cherries may also draw encouragement from the fact that they have beaten both Chelsea and Manchester United already this season, although a visit to Anfield is an entirely different proposition right now.

Bournemouth are likely to need one or two surprise results during the run-in, though, with Howe's side still due to face six of the current top seven in their final 10 games of the campaign.

Injured or Suspended Players

Liverpool: Clyne, Shaqiri, Henderson, Larouci and Keita.

Bournemouth: Brooks, Daniels, Groeneveld, Mepham, Kelly and Harry Wilson.

Liverpool vs Bournemouth Predictions

On paper, this looks to be the ideal fixture for Liverpool to get themselves back on track. They have a formidable record against Bournemouth, have been almost unstoppable at Anfield this season and take on a Cherries side in poor form struggling against relegation.

Of course, last weekend's Watford defeat proves that nothing can be taken for granted, but we cannot see anything other than a Liverpool return to winning ways on Saturday.
