A poor 2019 has cost Liverpool their tight hold on top of the English Premier League table and Manchester City’s win over Everton saw them leapfrog the Reds to take the top slot. Jurgen Klopp will want his team to find some of the lost rhythms back when it plays host to Bournemouth who are very inconsistent. Nothing less than three points will sooth the jangling nerves of Liverpool fans who have seen their team falter in the title race in the past. Injuries and poor form is a concern as they get ready for a crucial home tie.
Georginio Wijnaldum, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson are fit again to hand Liverpool a huge boost. The trio is a key figure in Jurgen Klopp’s set-up and without them, it gets difficult for the Reds to play with fluidity. Naby Keita is proving to be a huge flop so far and will likely make way for skipper Jordan Henderson. Mo Salah has been kept quiet in the last two games but the form of Sadio Mane has been refreshing to see. Xherdan Shaqiri has lost his way a bit after a fine opening half of the season and the Swiss international will want to prove his worth again with a good showing against Bournemouth.
Nataniel Clyne cannot feature against Liverpool for his on-loan club Bournemouth and Eddie Howe will need to put Adam Smith in his place in the starting eleven. Several first team stars like David Brooks, Callum Wilson, Lewis Cook and Simon Francis are out of the tie and their absence could be severely felt for the Cherries. Dominic Solanke who barely featured for Liverpool during his time at Merseyside is a threat for the Reds as they come up against him. The Bournemouth striker along with Josh King make up a formidable pair going forward.
Liverpool are low in confidence and may start cautiously but the quality of the squad will help them prevail over the Bournemouth challenge.
