Bournemouth had one man-advantage over Crystal Palace in their last match and still could not secure a single point from the encounter. The hosts were down to ten men on the pitch when Mamadou Sakho saw a red card in the 19th minute. After that, the visitors tried to dominate the proceedings, but the 76th-minute goal by Jeffrey Schlupp left them with nothing.
Meanwhile, for table leaders Liverpool, it was another day at Anfield as they recorded a phenomenal win in the Merseyside derby. Sadio Mane, once again was the main threat, as he helped his side to a 5-2 win, scoring a goal and assisted two.
Currently, Liverpool are on a 16-game unbeaten run and had won 14 of those encounters. Going back, they have lost just once from their previous 25 matches in a row. On the road, they are on a seven-match unbeaten run and have managed to win six of those games.
However, Bournemouth are on a four-match losing run and have a single win from their previous ten matches. At home, they are winless in 12 of their last 16 appearances, and most importantly, had lost the previous four clashes against the Champions League winners.
Head-to-head, Liverpool have a combined scoreline of 14-0 in those games. Klopp’s men have also registered nine of the past ten wins in such encounters, hold a 100% winning record in the last five years on that ground. Also, Liverpool have scored two or more goals in every single meeting at this venue since 2014.
As such, by all means, expect Liverpool to record a comfortable win over the struggling Bournemouth this weekend.
