Liverpool to get back to winning ways on the south coast

On Sunday afternoon, Bournemouth and Liverpool go head-to-head at the Vitality Stadium, as both teams look to get back to winning ways in the top-flight.

Bournemouth are perilously close to the Premier League after a poor run of results in the top-flight. The Cherries are currently just two points above the relegation zone following a five-game winless run for Eddie Howe’s team in the Premier League.

The south coast team have picked up draws in three of those five winless games. The home side were slightly unlucky not to get anything in a 1-0 defeat at Manchester United last time out.

The Cherries have a poor recent home record in the Premier League, winning one of their last five league games at home while winning just two of their last eight league games on home soil.

Liverpool head into this clash on the back of two straight draws at home in the Premier League. West Brom held the Reds to a goalless draw at Anfield last time out. Despite the draws, the Merseysiders are still only outside the top-four on goal difference.

Prior to their last two league games, Liverpool’s top-flight games were high scoring, as there have been over 2.5 goals scored in six of their last nine league games.

Klopp’s side have been in good form on their travels of late in the top-flight, winning their last three away games in the league, while scoring three or more goals in all three victories.

Liverpool’s recent away games in the Premier League have understandably been high scoring, with six of their last seven away games in the league producing over 2.5 goals.

The Reds have also been prolific in their recent away games at Bournemouth, having scored two or more goals on their last four visits to the south coast team.

Sportseconds predicts that Liverpool will bounce back to winning ways at the Vitality Stadium in a high scoring encounter.
