- Liverpool were on the receiving end of a much-improved Man Utd display on Monday and Jurgen Klopp’s injury-hit and under-performing side are still searching for their first win of the season in what has been a below-par start to the season.
- None of Liverpool’s injured party are ready to return to the fold just yet but Caoimhin Kelleher, Joel Matip, Curtis Jones and Thiago Alcantara could be back in contention after the weekend.
- Bournemouth’s opening weekend victory over Aston Villa seems like a distant memory now as no goals scored and seven conceded in their last two Premier League games – defeats to Man City and Arsenal – have brought them crashing back down to earth.
- The fixture calendar has been unforgiving to them as they now travel to face Liverpool although they may have former Red Dominic Solanke available after injury.
THE TEAM NEWS
PREDICTED XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Elliott, Fabinho, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Diaz
UNAVAILABLE: Kelleher (Injured), Matip (Injured), Konate (Injured), Ramsay (Injured), Jones (Injured), Keita (Injured), Thiago (Injured) Oxlade-Chamberlain (Injured), Jota (Injured), Nunez (Suspended)
PREDICTED XI (3-5-2): Travers; Mepham, Senesi, Kelly; Smith, Tavernier, Lerma, Marcondes, Zemura; Solanke, Moore
UNAVAILABLE: Brooks (Fitness), Rothwell (Injured), Fredericks (Injured), Stanislas (Injured)
QUESTIONABLE: Solanke (Injured)
Injuries are only partly to blame for Liverpool’s underwhelming start to the season as it is also the case that some of their available players have been well below their best. The defeat to Man Utd will have been a shock to the system though, and will surely galvanise Jurgen Klopp’s men into action here. A return to their free-flowing best will take some time, and will also require the return of one or two players, but Anfield should witness an improved Liverpool here, who will want to make a statement with a fast start. The hosts to be leading at both half-time and full-time is the prediction.
TIP: DOUBLE RESULT – LIVERPOOL / LIVERPOOL
