Liverpool News and Form

While Liverpool have not been helped with some injuries having been picked up recently, back-to-back 1-1 draw is against Leicester and West Ham have raised their stress levels in the title race. Since the turn of the New Year Liverpool are now W2 D2 L1 in the top flight. While that obviously isn’t the worst of records, for Liverpool it’s not great by their high standards which they set of the first half of the season. They don’t have their strongest back line available and Liverpool have just the one clean sheet in their last six league fixtures. Can they rediscover their winning touch?

Liverpool have a W10 D2 home record in the Premier League this season so they have delivered consistently at Anfield. The last home game was a 1-1 draw against Leicester, and that snapped a seven-match league winning streak that Liverpool were on home soil. Liverpool have returned a total of 32 home goals this season in the EPL, conceding just seven.

However going back to their current defensive issues, Liverpool are on a three-match sequence at Anfield with no clean sheet in the top flight. Liverpool have earned a clean sheet overall in 58% of league home fixtures. 50% of Liverpool’s home games this term have ended up over 3.5 goals. Sadio Mane is on a three-match scoring streak at home for Liverpool.

Liverpool v Bournemouth Head to Head

Key-Facts – Liverpool v Bournemouth

  • Liverpool remained unbeaten at home in the EPL this season
  • Liverpool are without a clean sheet in their last three home league fixtures
  • Bournemouth are on a seven match losing streak away from home

Bournemouth News and Form

After producing a couple of very good home wins, including a 4-0 victory over Chelsea, Bournemouth then hit the road and suffered a 2-0 defeat at the relegation-threatened Cardiff. So Bournemouth are good home side and to be fair, a pretty terrible road team. How bad has it been for Bournemouth out on the road currently in the top flight?

How about seven consecutive defeats? That is where the Cherries are at. Despite them scoring well at home, Bournemouth have managed just one goal in their last five games and on the road in the Premier League.

Overall this season, Bournemouth’s away record reads W3 L9 from their 12 played. So that does indicate that they are going to have a tough time of things at Anfield. Bournemouth have conceded an average of over two goals per game away from the Vitality Stadium this season.

42% of their away fixtures have ended up over 3.5 goals. In each of their last seven away games (all defeats), Bournemouth have conceded at least two goals. The Cherries have failed to score in exactly half of their away games this term.

Liverpool v Bournemouth Predictions

Liverpool to win: we have to support Liverpool getting back to winning ways in this fixture because the defence of Bournemouth is, or at least has been, a shambles away from home. Liverpool can see them off, but we fancy a look at both teams to score too as Liverpool haven’t been their usual solid selves across the back line.
