Jurgen Klopp’s men aren’t exactly in the kind of form that we’ve become accustomed to from a side of such quality. Three defeats in four across all competitions, losing to nil in each, has left a slightly bitter taste in the mouths of some Liverpool fans.
Though it’s certainly nowhere close to panic time just yet and there’s no better game to have to get back to winning ways this weekend.
Bournemouth’s away form has been abysmal of late, losing eight of their last nine. They’ve managed just the one strike across their last five such games against Burnley, Sheffield United, Norwich, West Ham and Brighton.
In fact, they’ve failed to score in eight of their last 12 road trips across all competitions and Anfield isn’t the kind of place you’d want to visit on that record.
Indeed, the Merseyside club have now won 21 successive league games at their home and are unbeaten there since Crystal Palace came to town in the 2016/17 season, a run stretching a whopping 54 games, so we can’t see Eddie Howe’s troupes taking the spoils.
Liverpool To Win And Both Teams To Score
One would be forgiven for being hesitant to get behind the hosts, considering recent form and the fact they have a huge Last 16 second leg with Atletico Madrid just four days after this, though the evidence would suggest the contrary.
Since the change of Champions League format in 2004, the Reds have gone W10-D3-L1 at Anfield in League games within five days of a Champions League knockout tie, going unbeaten in such games since a 1-0 defeat to Man Utd back in March 2007 and winning eight of their last nine, so we’re inclined to back them in one way or another.
Despite Bournemouth’s recent form, a lot can be said about the return of Josh King, having been injured since the end of December, he’s now made back-to-back starts in the league and scored last time out against Chelsea.
Indeed, with King in the starting line-up since the beginning of last season, the Cherries have seen a 47% increase in output compared to when he’s left off the team sheet.
What’s more, when both him and Callum Wilson have started together over the same time period (like they have in their last two games), the south coast side see a whopping 108% goal increase and with the hosts having conceded a whopping eight goals in their last four outings, we can see Bournemouth nabbing a goal, and coupling that with the home win looks by far the best option.
