In the English Premier League, Liverpool will play against Bournemouth this weekend. This game is set to be played at Liverpool’s home ground at Anfield.
Bournemouth lost their last game as they were beaten by Cardiff City away from home. It was a disappointing performance by the Cherries as they lost to a team in the relegation zone. During the loss, Bournemouth managed to control 74% of the ball but had only 2 shots on target in the entire game which was very disappointing, especially since Bournemouth entered the game in decent form. Bournemouth are currently 10th on the ladder and are in no risk of relegation so things are comfortable for the club. That being said, this is going to be a tough game for Bournemouth as they are playing an exceptional team away from home.
On the other side of the pitch, Liverpool will know that they must win to maintain top spot on the Premier League table. Liverpool dropped points in their last game to West Ham United as they only managed a draw. It was a disappointing result for the Reds as they have allowed Manchester City back into the title race. During the draw, Liverpool had the majority of the ball and 11 shots but failed to score enough goals to secure the win.
Liverpool and Bournemouth played earlier in the season. The match was played at the Vitality Stadium where Liverpool won 4-0 away from home.
As far as this game is concerned, I am going to pick Liverpool to win this game. Liverpool have a much stronger side when compared to Bournemouth and the Reds have the added advantage of playing at home. Liverpool must win this match to keep up in the title race and I see them being good enough to get all 3 points from this home fixture.
