Opta stats
This will be the 15th meeting between Liverpool and Bournemouth in all competitions, with the Reds losing only once in the process (W10 D3).
Bournemouth's only previous victory against Liverpool in their history came in the Premier League in December 2016, winning 4-3 at the Vitality Stadium.
Liverpool have won five and drawn one of their six home matches against Bournemouth in all competitions, keeping three clean sheets.
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 33 Premier League home games, winning 23 and drawing 10. They drew their last league game at Anfield, but haven't failed to win two in a row there since December 2017 (3).
Despite opening the scoring in their last two Premier League games, Liverpool have ended up drawing them both. They've never scored first and failed to win in three consecutive games in the competition before.
Bournemouth have lost each of their last seven away Premier League games, conceding at least two goals each time. The last team to lose eight in a row on the road were Crystal Palace (8 in November 2017), while the last to do so while conceding at least twice were Portsmouth in February 2006.
Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has scored five goals in three Premier League appearances against Bournemouth, including netting a hat-trick in the reverse fixture this season.
Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino has had a hand in six goals in six Premier League starts against Bournemouth (3 goals, 3 assists).
Liverpool's Sadio Mane has scored in each of his last three appearances in the Premier League - he's never scored in four consecutive matches within the same season in the competition before.
Bournemouth's Josh King has scored three goals in his last three Premier League games, as many as he had in his previous 14 in the competition.

Bournemouth are poor away from home and I see Liverpool winning this game.
