Liverpool are in a dreamland after securing their place in Champions League semi-finals during the week. Their focus will now shift to the challenge at the domestic front as they host Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday.
Following their defeat at Manchester United, Liverpool have picked up seven points from their three games. Last weekend, a heavily-rotated Liverpool side came out with a goalless draw from the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.
The Reds have been particularly good at home, and we don’t see them having any trouble in dispatching the Cherries. Liverpool are currently third with 67 points, but they have played a game more than Tottenham, who are fourth with an equal number of points.
The Cherries come into this game on the back of consecutive draws against Watford and Crystal Palace.
The South Coast side have almost secured their top-tier status for another year as they sit in the 11th spot with 38 points. The Cherries haven’t had difficulties in scoring goals, but like previous years, they are a bit shaky at the back.
Earlier this season, the Reds have already defeated their opponents 4-0 at Vitality Stadium. We expect to see another goal-heavy fixture this weekend.
