What Trueform says for Bournemouth vs Liverpool
Bournemouth welcome Liverpool to the Vitality Stadium on the back of a 2-1 home win over Huddersfield which snapped a four-game losing streak in the Premier League.
Liverpool were given a tough examination by struggling Burnley at Turf Moor, but came from behind to prevail 3-1 and remain two points behind leaders Manchester City.
This should be a competitive contest, but the Cherries have been edged out 2-1 at home by Manchester United and Arsenal recently, so 31/4 the visitors win by that correct score is a solid Bournemouth vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
In Tuesday’s defeat of the Terriers, Callum Wilson took his tally for the season to eight after heading home Ryan Fraser’s cross and returned the favour for the Scotland international to double Bournemouth’s lead.
Cherries goalkeeper Asmir Begovic made three stunning saves in quick succession before Terence Kongolo made a game of it with a header just before the break.
Boss Eddie Howe said: “I think we have to focus very quickly on Liverpool now.
“It is that sort of month where it is game after game after game and a relentless schedule, so let’s try and use this win to give us confidence to perform well against Liverpool.”
Bournemouth lost this fixture 4-0 last season and also went down 3-0 at Anfield, although they have fond memories of a dramatic 4-3 win over Liverpool two years ago.
Wilson and Fraser were both on target that day and are in form and we feel the Cherries can give another good account of themselves, so 27/20 for the game to be level at half-time appeals from the Bournemouth vs Liverpool odds.
Last Bournemouth line-up: Begovic, Francis, S Cook, Ake, Daniels, Brooks, L Cook, Lerma, Fraser, King, Wilson.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Jurgen Klopp’s gamble of making seven changes, and leaving Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino on the bench, was ultimately justified at Burnley, but for more than an hour it looked like backfiring.
The Clarets gave their visitors a tough test and after goalkeeper Joe Hart had kept them in the game with two top-class saves from Daniel Sturridge and Naby Keita, Jack Cork put them ahead just after the break.
However, James Milner soon equalised and after Klopp sent on Salah and Firmino, the latter converted from close range within four minutes of his arrival, while Xherdan Shaqiri wrapped up victory in added time.
It maintained the Reds’ unbeaten start to the season and Klopp said: “Reacting like we reacted at a tough place like Turf Moor and Burnley, that’s special. It’s really good.
“We controlled the game in a lot of moments, but in all the moments where we gave Burnley the chance to have a proper tackle and stuff like that, then it didn’t look that cool.
“The second half was a perfect reaction and I am really, really happy about the three points.”
Klopp’s men won’t have it all their own way on the south coast but can come through another tough assignment, with the Reds winning by a one-goal margin at 27/10 rounding off our Bournemouth vs Liverpool betting tips.
Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Gomez, Matip, Van Dijk, Moreno, Shaqiri, Keita, Henderson, Milner, Origi, Sturridge.
