Bournemouth came up short during the midweek as they lost 1-0 at Manchester United, but they would be looking to cause an upset when Liverpool visit Vitality Stadium on Sunday.
The Cherries are without a win in their last five league games, but they have lost only twice in that run. They sit in the 14th spot, but they find themselves just a couple of points clear of the drop zone.
Last season, the Cherries picked up a last-minute 4-3 win in the corresponding fixture, and they would be inspired to repeat the feat on Sunday.
The Reds come into the game on the back of a frustrating goalless draw against West Bromwich at home. Goals have dried up for the Merseysiders in the recent weeks, and they have managed only one in their last two games.
After picking up just two points from their last two fixtures, the Reds find themselves in the fifth spot with 31 points.
Last season, the Reds failed to pick up a win against their opponents, as the corresponding game ended in a 4-3 defeat, and they could only manage a 2-2 draw at Anfield.
