Bournemouth vs Liverpool prediction
Liverpool host Bournemouth in Saturday's early Premier League game.
The Reds are riding high after last weekend's superb 7-0 win against Man United.
But no matter how expressive a victory is, the most important thing is that it brings 3 points to the team's assets.
Thanks to the points earned by Man Utd, Poole are only 3 points off 4th place, where Tottenham are.
And Jurgen Klopp's men have a game less than Spurs.
Today, the Reds are likely to continue their successful run in the Premier League (4-1-0 without conceding a goal).
As they come against one of the underdogs in the league – Bournemouth.
And the football statistics are more than definitive - 7 consecutive victories against them.
In which Liverpool conceded a single goal, and scored as many as 28 hits on the Chereshki's goal.
This season's new additions to Poole's ranks - Darwin Nunes and Cody Gakpo - are in a whirlwind.
After scoring 2 goals each against Man United.
That's why I added them to my prediction today to be possible scorers for Klopp's squad.
Bournemouth are last and have lost 9 of their previous 12 games (1-2-9)
Bournemouth suffered a real blow in the last round.
The Cherries were beaten 3-2 by the Emirates Gunners after taking a surprise 2-0 lead.
Philip Billing scored the 2nd fastest goal in Premier League history.
After breaking through Arsenal's defense just 9.11 seconds into the match.
Marcos Senesi doubled the lead with a header three minutes before the hour mark.
But Arsenal battled back and eventually prevailed with a decisive winner in the 97th minute.
"My initial thought and feeling is that I'm obviously devastated by the last goal," manager Gary O'Neill said.
“But we came close to taking a point off the league leaders, there's definitely something to it.
From where we've been the last couple of years and where we're trying to get to, it's a big effort to get them as close as we did."
The Cherries were previously thrashed by Manchester City here.
But they kept fighting and grabbed a late consolation goal in that 1-4 defeat.
Earlier, Bournemouth picked up a crucial 4 points in the battle for survival after a 1-1 draw with Newcastle and a 1-0 win against Wolves.
Liverpool are 3 points off the Top 4 and are 5 games unbeaten in the league (4-1-0)
A month ago, Liverpool were outsiders to qualify for next season's Champions League.
But picking up 13 points from a possible 15 put them back on track for a top-four finish.
The Reds gave their fans a day to remember when they triumphed 7-0 over arch-rivals Man Yun at Anfield.
Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunes and Mohamed Salah each scored twice. And Roberto Firmino also found the target.
In this way, one of the most memorable victories in the entire history of the legendary English club took shape.
Jurgen Klopp had to start a rebuilding process up front after Sadio Mane left last summer.
And Firmino will leave at the end of this season.
There were some tough times in that regard.
But Liverpool's future looks bright with Darwin Nunes and Cody Gakpo. Who have already settled at Anfield.
Virgil van Dijk is determined to maintain the momentum built up in recent weeks.
“We went 7-0 in a tough season we've had. Now we have to enjoy it a bit," said the Dutch defender.
“But the focus will turn to Bournemouth. I think our focus has always been on the next game and that doesn't change."
An eventual win here would lift Poole up to the coveted 4th position in the standings, at least for a little while.
