Liverpool’s terrible run of form continued into game week three as they were soundly beaten by their old foes Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Reds who have drawn their opening two games of the campaign have struggled with injuries and suspension, leaving them with just two points after three games.

Their title hopes are already being written off by many and if they fail to find victory in their opening four league matches for only the second time in their PL history, it may already be the final nail in that coffin.

They will be desperate to return to winning ways at Anfield when they remain unbeaten in over a year. Jurgen Klopp’s men, despite their struggles, have lost just one of their last 22 league games.

Having won each of their last six league meetings with Bournemouth and keeping five clean sheets, they will come into this tie confident of getting a good result against a Bournemouth side that is equally struggling to get wins. 

Possible Liverpool starting line-up

Alisson Becker; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson; Fabinho, Naby Keita, Harvey Elliot; Luis Diaz, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino.

Injured: Thiago Alcantara, Curtis Jones, Ibrahima Konate, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Joel Matip, Calvin Ramsay

Doubtful: Caoimhin Kelleher

Suspended: Darwin Nunez


Bournemouth’s harsh run of fixtures continues this Saturday when they travel to Anfield. 

The visitors have already played Manchester City and Arsenal in their last two games and will now travel to Merseyside looking to take points off another member of the top six in just their fourth week of the new season.

Having conceded seven times in their last two games against City (4-0) and Arsenal (3-0), Scott Parker will be hoping that his side can produce a miracle akin to the one his Fulham side produced at Anfield two seasons ago. 

But given that his men have conceded 19 times in their last five meetings with Liverpool, scoring just once, he will have to set up his men to be more solid defensively to stand a chance against a Liverpool team that almost always score in front of their home fans. 

Possible Bournemouth starting line-up

Mark Travers; Chris Mepham, Marcos Senesi, Lloyd Kelly; Jefferson Lerma; Adam Smith, Ben Pearson, Marcus Tavernier, Jordan Zemura; Philip Billing, Kieffer Moore.

Injured: David Brooks, Ryan Fredericks, Joe Rothwell

Doubtful: Dominic Solanke

Suspended: None
