Liverpool maintained their chances of achieving a quadruple by securing a slim first-leg lead in their League Cup semi-final against Fulham on Wednesday evening. Next Sunday, the formidable Reds will shift their focus back to the Premier League when they travel to Bournemouth.

Bournemouth vs. Liverpool: Form Guide

Andoni Iraola has faced a challenging beginning to his time as the manager of Bournemouth, as they were unable to secure a victory in their first nine matches in the Premier League. The dismissal of Gary O’Neil just before the start of the season was an unfavourable start, and those concerns were confirmed early on when they achieved a draw against West Ham and Brentford while suffering defeats against Liverpool and Tottenham in their initial four matches.

Following a goalless draw against Chelsea, the team experienced four consecutive losses, during which they found the net on just two occasions. Nevertheless, the team secured its inaugural victory against Burnley, courtesy of goals scored by Antoine Semenyo and Philip Billing. Subsequently, they capitalised on this triumph by achieving three further victories and a draw in their subsequent five league fixtures.

Bournemouth achieved their most notable outcome of the season with a resounding 3-0 victory at Old Trafford. They subsequently scored three goals in their following two matches against Nottingham Forest and Fulham. However, they concluded the year with a loss against Tottenham.

The Cherries have displayed significant improvement in recent weeks and currently occupy the 12th spot, behind mid-table by a margin of three points. They are confident in their ability to make a substantial impact this season and must continue improving their position in the standings.  Securing any positive outcome against the current top team in the league would significantly reinforce that belief. Bournemouth can rely on their previous success of defeating Liverpool 1-0 in the same match last season.

Liverpool has had an impeccable season as they strive to disrupt this year’s title chase after experiencing a setback in 2022-23. Despite some noticeable shortcomings in their performance, Klopp and his team will be pleased with their success and determined to maintain their position, as they currently have a five-point lead over Manchester City with an additional game to play.

A tie in the opening match against Chelsea provided little indication of the team’s future trajectory, but Liverpool won their next five league games. The ultimate loss against Tottenham Hotspur demonstrated their determination as they were denied points due to inadequate officiating despite having two players dismissed.  Although they won against Brentford, Forest, and Everton, their defensive shortcomings were clear in the draws against Man City, Luton, and Brighton.

In December, they had a series of victories involving Palace, Fulham, and Sheffield United. However, they could not win crucial matches against Manchester United and Arsenal. Liverpool emerged victorious with a 2-0 scoreline over Burnley on Boxing Day and continued their winning streak by triumphing against Newcastle in a thrilling match on New Year’s Day. Their resilience this year has been bolstered by their status as the side with the most comeback victories in Europe’s top five leagues, showcasing exceptional game-management skills and mental strength.

These attributes are crucial in chasing down the EPL title, and they will face Bournemouth amid the Carabao Cup semi-final against Fulham. To secure trophies at the conclusion of the season, Jurgen Klopp’s team must maintain their winning streak as Man City, Aston Villa, and Arsenal strategize to surpass them.

With that said, despite some crucial players’ absence, the Reds possess the necessary ability to secure another victory against Bournemouth, as most pundits expect a routine win for the Merseysiders.

Bournemouth vs. Liverpool: The Betting Odds 

Bournemouth 18/5

Draw 17/5

Liverpool 3/4

Since 2014, Bournemouth has competed against Liverpool on 17 occasions and has managed to win just one of those meetings (4-3, 2016). So, it’s no surprise that New Zealand’s best-licensed bookmakers have placed next Sunday’s visiting team as the betting favourite.

If the win/draw markets aren’t providing enough betting value, looking toward both teams to score the market isn’t a bad proposition.

Bournemouth has scored 28 goals in 19 English Premier League matches this season, placing them in 11th position for average goals scored, with an average of 1.5 goals per match. In contrast, Liverpool has conceded 18 goals in 20 games in the top-flight league, giving them the highest ranking for goals conceded per match (0.9).

In contrast, Liverpool has scored 43 goals in the Premier League this season, placing them in the second position for goals per match with an average of 2.2. On the other hand, Bournemouth has allowed 35 goals, ranking them 17th for goals conceded per match with an average of 1.8.

Bournemouth has seen ‘Both Teams to Score’ land in 11 of its 19 English Premier League matches this season, accounting for 57.9% of their games. We’ve witnessed BTTS in 13 out of Liverpool’s 20 English Premier League matches, which accounts for 65.0%.

Bournemouth vs. Liverpool: Prediction 

Bournemouth will need to perform exceptionally well to halt the formidable Liverpool team. However, their previous displays suggest that the match will be closely contested. Consequently, the hosts must demonstrate precise and efficient execution to capitalise on their opportunities.

The crucial confrontations occur in midfield when Liverpool’s dynamic department encounters adversaries who prefer to assert dominance in physical contests. Although this game promises to be thrilling, Liverpool is expected to emerge as the winner, and I expect them to do so with or without a full-strength squad.
