Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp look to get theri first win together as they host a struggling Bournemouth in the league cup. Anfield will be rocking on Wednesday night as the Reds go in search of their first win under Klopp. The performances have arguably been better under Klopp but the results have been similar with Liverpool now having five draws in a row. The players look to be working harder but the results are not forthcoming yet. James Milner has been Liverpool's best player all season and the former Manchester City midfielder is the engine room of this Liverpool team with Lucas and Can providing the center midfield report Couthino and Milner are getting more license to rake forward and Origi will probably get another start tonight as Benteke is struggling for fitness.
On the other side Bournemouth are really struggling, they have now lost their last two games by the same scoreline 5-1, Eddie Howe's side are making terrible mistakes defensively and in the Premier League you pay for those mistakes. At the weekend against Tottenham they were simply terrible and while these defensive mistakes are being punished they are also struggling going forward but the arrival of Glenn Murray from Crystal Palace has provided some outlets up front. The loss of Calum Wilson to a knee injury was a devestating blow to Bournemouth and along with the loss of Mings and Gradel to season long injuries there is no doubt that Bournemouth have been very unlucky on the injury front this season.
Tough game to call here, Liverpool have become the draw specialists and while Bournemouth have been terrible at times this could be a useful distraction and I think Bournemouth will feel like they should have gotten something from their early game with Liverpool this season and maybe they could get some revenge here. I am going to take both teams to score here.
