Bournemouth vs. Liverpool Preview (What To Know Before Betting)
Bournemouth vs. Liverpool
Liverpool aims to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League by five points as they travel to face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday.
After overcoming Arsenal 2-0 in the third round, both teams have had a two-week break following their FA Cup victories. The Cherries staged an impressive comeback, securing a 3-2 win against Queens Park Rangers during this period.
As temperatures dropped during the festive period, Bournemouth, under Andoni Iraola’s guidance, surged ahead, leaving their former relegation rivals behind. They amassed an impressive 19 points from 21 available in a remarkable seven-game winning streak before being halted by a 3-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur on New Year’s Eve.
This defeat also ended the Cherries’ streak of scoring at least twice in seven consecutive matches, a feat largely influenced by the performances of former Liverpool player Dominic Solanke. However, Bournemouth rediscovered their scoring prowess at Loftus Road on January 6.
What to remember – Bournemouth vs. Liverpool
Bournemouth’s dismal record against Premier League leaders is cause for concern, but Iraola’s goal-scoring team shouldn’t be easily dismantled, especially against an injury-affected Liverpool vulnerable in the wide areas. Despite Klopp’s team excelling at overcoming challenges this season, Bournemouth’s defensive vulnerabilities suggest confidence in Liverpool securing a fifth consecutive win and a five-point lead at the top upon their return to Merseyside.
