Liverpool seem determined to go through the whole season unbeaten. They have so far dropped a grand total of two points, and hold an eleven-point lead over current champions, Manchester City. Considering that the Reds are taking on a Bournemouth side, that have lost the last four league encounters on the trot, a win looks likely for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Bournemouth vs Liverpool Prediction
Bournemouth had a man-advantage over Crystal Palace the last match-day, and still could not secure at least a single point from the game. The hosts were reduced to ten guys on the pitch, as Mamadou Sakho saw an early red card (in the 19th minute). Thereafter, the visiting contingent tried their best to dominate the proceedings, but the 76th-minute goal by Jeffrey Schlupp spoiled their plans.
In the meantime, Liverpool had a mesmerizing day at Anfield the prior game week, as they recorded a phenomenal win in the Merseyside derby. Sadio Mane played destructor-in-chief, as he helped his side to a 5-2 win, with a goal and two assists.
As to the result in this upcoming fixture, consider the current form of both. Liverpool are on a 16-game unbeaten run and had won 14 of those. Going back, the team has lost just once from their preceding 25 games in a row. On the road, they are on a seven-match unbeaten run and managed to win six of these.
On the contrary, Bournemouth are on a four-match losing run and have a single win to show for, from their previous ten match-ups. At home, they remained winless in 12 of their last 16 appearances, and most importantly, had lost the prior four h2h clashes against this opponent.
To further explain the dominance of Liverpool, take into account the combined scoreline of 14-0 in favor of the Reds in h2h games. Klopp’s men have also registered nine of the former ten wins in such encounters, and at this venue, hold a 100% winning record in the last five years. Also, note that Liverpool have scored two or more goals in every single meeting at this venue since 2014.
Finally, understand that the Reds are ruthlessly prioritizing the Premier League. They have not recorded a single league in the modern era, and are hell-bent on delivering the dream to their fans this season.
On top of that, talks are rife about Klopp’s men going after only the second-ever Golden Premier League in history, after Arsenal in 2003. Imagine the scenes – Liverpool putting an end to their three-decade-long wait with an unbeaten league triumph.
As such, by all means, expect Liverpool to record a comfortable win over the struggling Bournemouth this weekend.
