Liverpool to end frustrations with south coast win


Bournemouth v Liverpool Betting Tips – Premier League 17th December 4.30pm

Bournemouth put on a pretty good showing at Old Trafford in midweek despite losing 1-0 against Manchester United. They were in the game and a little unlucky not to come away with something. They be hoping to respond with something as they get back to home soil and face Liverpool on the weekend. The Reds couldn’t find a way to break down the struggling West Brom at Anfield in midweek and will be keen to shake off the disappointments at those dropped points.

Bournemouth News and Form

Bournemouth suffered a 1-0 loss at Old Trafford on Wednesday night, but they really deserved a point out of it and were a little unlucky not to do so. So that leaves them with a five match winless streak of form in the top flight (D3 L2) and just need to find a bit more going forward for themselves. At the Vitality Stadium, this season Bournemouth are W2 D2 L4 in the Premier League and have mixed things up with a W1 D1 L1 record in their last three played there. In general, they have been improving after their poor start to the season but they are still lacking in the final third of the pitch which is going to continue to hamper them. Still, there is probably going to be value in both teams to score at William Hill in this one even though the Cherries are only averaging just over a goal per game at home this season. As Bournemouth have only conceded two first half goal this season the half time draw is a good option, and 78% of their goals conceded at the Vitality have come after the break. Bournemouth have Callum Wilson and Jermain Defoe at 9/4 in the anytime goalscorer market. Given their current form and opposition in this one, a draw would be a decent result.

Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool are now on a great unbeaten streak of eight matches in the top flight. They had a couple of frustrating matches at Anfield over the last week though, playing out a 1-1 draw with Everton in the Merseyside derby and then only picking up a 0-0 draw against the struggling West Brom. So there have been dropped points from them but out on the road they are positive with three matches won consecutively. Overall they are W4 D2 L2 this season on their travels, but because they have conceded a lot of away goals then over 2.5 goals at William Hill is well worth a poke. Liverpool have averaged 2.5 goals per game on their travels this season and 88% of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals. Mohamed Salah, who is having a prolific season is the 10/11 anytime goalscorer favourite for the match with Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Dominic Solanke all 6/5 options. A Liverpool 2-1 result in the correct score market is a good 8/1 price while they are out at 11/1 to take a 3-1 victory. Both defeats that Liverpool have suffered on their travels have been at top four clubs, so they have done well enough against the rest to suggests that they can get close to three points here. They need a boost after their frustrations at Anfield.

Bournemouth v Liverpool Head to Head

This will only be the fifth Premier League meeting between these two and from those previous four Liverpool are ahead with W2 D1 L1 record. The Reds are W1 L1 at the Vitality against the Cherries in the Premier League having lost 4-3 in a cracking match between them on the south coast last term. Each of the last three league games between them have managed to go over 2.5 goals. Overall from eleven previous meetings, Liverpool are W7 D3 L1 against Bournemouth.

Bournemouth v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool to win: The Reds are value to go and collect a victory in this one as they should be pretty eager to put the midweek disappointments behind them. It’s not too likely that they are going to misfire in front of goal in back to back games. With the Cherries not scoring too well, there should be an away win here.
