Liverpool vs Bournemouth: All Eyes on Anfield as UK 3pm TV Blackout Strikes Again
On the back of a heated match against Chelsea, Liverpool are raring to step onto their hallowed Anfield turf this Saturday, facing AFC Bournemouth in their maiden home game of the 2023/24 Premier League season.
Liverpool fans had plenty to discuss after their away game at Chelsea. Mohamed Salah and Luis Díaz, with their impeccable sync, stole the limelight, painting a picture of attacking brilliance. But new recruits, Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, had a more subdued initiation into the team. With Mac Allister pivoting defensively and Cody Gakpo also dropping deep, it’s been a lively start to the season for the Liverpool formation wise.
However, the transfer season wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows. The absence of Moisés Caicedo and Roméo Lavia, who now sport Chelsea blue, was felt. But back at Anfield against the Cherries, Liverpool’s fresh faces could soon show what they’re truly capable of.
Bournemouth’s Brave Start
The Cherries, under the leadership of Andoni Iraola, have shown promise. Their season opener at the Vitality Stadium against West Ham culminated in a 1-1 draw, with David Brooks and Dom Solanke making headlines. Yet, they’ll be well aware that Liverpool poses a significantly greater challenge. Given Liverpool’s recent midfield lapses, Bournemouth’s tactician will surely be crafting strategies to capitalise. But for any hope of success, neutralising Liverpool’s potent attack is a prerequisite.
