Goal Scorer:

During Bournemouth's loss to Spurs on New Year's Eve, centre-back Marcos Senesi was cautioned for the fifth time in the 2023-24 Premier League, thus ruling him out of the visit of Liverpool through suspension; Chris Mepham ought to step in.

Fellow defender Lloyd Kelly - apparently a transfer target for Liverpool - could be back from a thigh problem, but Tyler Adams remains out with a similar issue, while Adam Smith (muscle), Milos Kerkez (foot), Ryan Fredericks (calf), Darren Randolph (illness), Dango Ouattara (international) and Antoine Semenyo (international) will not face the Reds either.

Ex-Reds man Solanke is expected to recover from the affliction which kept him out of the FA Cup, but Joe Rothwell and Hamed Traore have departed on loan for Southampton and Napoli respectively.
Bournemouth possible starting lineup:
Neto; Aarons, Zabarnyi, Mepham, Kerkez; Christie, Cook; Tavernier, Billing, Kluivert; Solanke

While Bournemouth may be boosted by the return of a left-back, Liverpool remain without their two senior options on that side in Andrew Robertson (shoulder) and Kostas Tsimikas (collarbone), while Trent Alexander-Arnold will miss a few weeks with the knee issue he picked up against Arsenal in the FA Cup.

Stefan Bajcetic (calf), Ben Doak (knee), Thiago Alcantara (hip) and Joel Matip (knee) are also in the care of the physios, and the visitors are also making do without Japan's Wataru Endo and Egypt's Mohamed Salah, who suffered a worrying injury scare during Thursday's Africa Cup of Nations clash with Ghana.

Klopp is also not optimistic about having Dominik Szoboszlai (thigh) back for Sunday's game, where Conor Bradley is set to make his full Premier League debut at right-back.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Bradley, Konate, Van Dijk, Gomez; Jones, Mac Allister, Gravenberch; Jota, Nunez, Diaz
Prediction: Bournemouth 1-2 Liverpool
