The Cherries snapped a slump of four straight defeats by collecting three home points against Huddersfield in midweek. That moved them on to a W2 D2 L2 record on home soil this season in the top flight. They were on a three-match winless streak of form at the Vitality before getting that win over the Terriers in midweek. At home this season in the top flight Bournemouth have come up with 14 goals, conceding 10. Of their home games, this season 75% of them have gone over 2.5 goals. Bournemouth are currently running on a six-match scoring streak in the top flight.
They are without a clean sheet in their last five though, which has helped push each of their last six Premier League games to produce at least three goals in each. 70% of their home goals conceded have been in the second half of games. Bournemouth have scored 64% of home goals in the first half of matches at the Vitality. They have not been trailing at the halftime break on home soil this season. Against the current top six in the league, Bournemouth have gone D1 L3 in the four matches. Callum Wilson has scored in back to back league games
Liverpool won both league meetings with Bournemouth last term
The Reds are unbeaten in three against the Cherries
Each of the last five EPL meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Liverpool are W4 D1 L1 in their last six EPL games against Bournemouth
Bournemouth are W1 L2 in three previous Premier League home games against Liverpool
Liverpool fought back from being a goal down at Turf Moor against Burnley in midweek to record a 3-1 win. That maintained their unbeaten record for the season and because they are kicking off earlier than Man City on the weekend, they have the chance to put some pressure on the league leaders. Liverpool are W6 D2 away from Anfield this season in the Premier League. They have collected three points in each of their away games against sides currently in the bottom half of the table. There has been a total of 15 away goals scored by Liverpool in eight games.
Liverpool have only conceded five times on the road this season. Exactly half of their away games this term have gone over 2.5 goals. They have tallied a clean sheet in 38% of their games away from Anfield in the top flight. Just once on their travels so far this term have Liverpool be trailing at half time (W4 D3). They are on a seven-match scoring streak in the top flight, that’s home and away combined. They have struck in each of their eight away games this season. 67% of their away goals have been in the second half of games. Liverpool have the best defensive record in this season’s top flight
Liverpool look the likelier of the two to come up with a victory in the game. Bournemouth’s defence is probably going to have a hard time keeping the Reds at bay all match. The home form of the Cherries hasn’t been hot and Liverpool can strike. Liverpool to win & both teams to score.

The Cherries almost got themselves a good point at Old Trafford in midweek and although they lost the game the performance can give them a boost. They will be looking for something out of this one to avoid going back to back losses. Liverpool misfired in the week despite dominating West Brom at Anfield, they just couldn’t get themselves on the board and had to settle for a 0-0 draw and dropped points. Liverpool are 1/2 odds on to win this one with the draw at 15/4 and Bournemouth at 6/1.
The Cherries probably deserved a point at Old Trafford in midweek, but they lost 1-0 against a really lacklustre Manchester United. That extended their winless streak in the Premier League to five matches (D3 L2) and they are just searching for that next win. They have gone W2 D2 L4 on home soil this season and they have had a mixed W1 D1 L1 in their last three there. They have been improving lately but they are still lacking a little bit of a punch in the final third of the pitch. 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. The half time draw is big value as the Cherries have only conceded two first half goals this season, leaving 78% of the goals that they have conceded at the Vitality coming in the second half of matches. Bournemouth have Callum Wilson and Jermain Defoe at 9/4 in the anytime goalscorer market. A point out of this, considering their winless streak at the moment, really wouldn’t be a bad return for the Cherries at all.
The Reds are unbeaten in their last eight league games now but have had a couple of back to back frustrating games. After their 1-1 draw against Everton, the Reds hosted West Brom in midweek and despite dominating the game, couldn’t get a goal on the board. They are carrying away form though with a three match winning streak on their travels and they have scored twelve goals on those three wins. Their overall record on the road this season is W4 D2 L2 but as they have shipped a lot of away goals, 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 is the 10/11 anytime goalscorer favourite for the match with Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Dominic Solanke all 6/5 options. In the William Hill correct score market, a Liverpool 2-1 win is a price of 8/1 while they are 11/1 to win this 3-1. The two losses that Liverpool have suffered this season have both been at top four sides and they have handled themselves pretty well against the rest. They need a pick-me-up after those disappointing home results.
The Cherries won this fixture 4-3 last season in a cracking game before playing out a 2-2 draw at Anfield. So from the four previous Premier League clashes between the two of these, Liverpool are W2 D1 L1 up and there has been one win each between them at the Vitality Stadium. Three of the four previous Premier League games between them have gone over the 2.5 goal line.
Liverpool should have enough in the tank to get a win on the board in this one against the low-scoring Cherries. They weren’t at their clinical best in midweek and will be looking to set the balance straight again and they are value to win this.

The Cherries have been struggling to find their winning touch with just one league victory posted in their last five outings now. With three defeats in their last four they are startling to look vulnerable and this isn’t going to be an easy game for them. Liverpool banked a good home win last weekend over Sunderland in what could have turned out to be a tricky match for them because of the resilience of the visitors. They got the job done though and Jurgen Klopp’s men stayed firmly in touch in the race for the Premier League title. Can they collect another three points on Sunday? Bournemouth are 15/4 for the win, with the draw at 14/5 and Liverpool in short at a 7/10 odds on punt.
William Hill’s Super Sub offer is a great way to cover your anytime goalscorer wager on a match. This offer only applies to selected live matches and if the player you have backed in the anytime goalscorer market is substituted and has not scored, then the bet rolls over onto the player who has come on to replace him. If that replacement player scores in the match then you will get paid out at the original price on your initial selection! This is tremendous promotion from the bookmaker and when you open an account with them you can earn a £20 free bet as a welcome bonus from the bookmaker!
The Cherries have done pretty well at home this season with a W3 D1 L2 record and they have lost just one of their last five league games there (W3 D1). So pretty decent but they will have been fuming after losing their last home match which was against the struggling Sunderland. That was a missed opportunity. The Cherries have collected three clean sheets at home this season, but will they be able to withstand the pressure that Liverpool are likely to have them under? Maybe not and both teams to score in this one is a price of 8/13 with William Hill. Both teams have been on the scoresheet in the last two between these on the south coast to add some weight to that. Bournemouth are still looking for their first ever win over Liverpool in all competitions. They have failed in each of their previous nine attempts to get the better of the reds (D2 L7).
Also, Bournemouth have never scored more than one goal in a game against Liverpool and have netted just two in the last five as well. So obviously this is looking like a tough fixture for them and over 2.5 goals on the game will return a price of 4/7 with William Hill. Bournemouth have lost all eight Premier League games they’ve played on a Sunday, including this exact fixture last season (1-2). A repeat of that scoreline turning up actually looks like a pretty tempting wager and a Liverpool 2-1 correct score therefore will return a price of 8/1. Up in the anytime goalscorer market, Callum Wilson is a 15/8 poke with Benik Afobe at 2/1 and Joshua King at 11/4. Junior Stanislas (40%) has been directly involved a higher share of Bournemouth’s PL goals this campaign than any other player (6/15) and is 3/1 to net.
Both of Liverpool’s wins over Bournemouth last season came by only a one goal margin. Liverpool to win by a one goal margin in this one at William Hill is a price of 11/4. Liverpool are currently going along in great form, winning eight and losing none of their last 11 Premier league games, which is their their longest unbeaten run under Jurgen Klopp and their longest such streak since going 13 without defeat under Brendan Rodgers in March 2015. They will be without Philippe Coutinho which is a huge loss for them for a few weeks. Daniel Sturridge is an even money poke along with Divock Origi and Sadio Mane in the anytime goalscorer market with Roberto Firmino at 11/8. The Reds have gone W4 D2 L1 on their travels this season but are unbeaten in their last five away from Anfield. The Reds have scored 13 and conceded 10 goals on the road this season. They are pretty entertaining to follow.
The Cherries have suffered some pretty big setbacks lately with league defeats against Middlesbrough and Sunderland of note. They are a better side on home soil without question, but even a Liverpool side running without their main man Philippe Coutinho will likely be too big of a handful for them. Look for Liverpool to take the win in the game but it may be worth having a flutter on both teams to score in the fixture and for the game to go over 2.5 goals as well. It could be a hugely entertaining game.

The Cherries haven’t been in bad form at all lately, having won four of their last six top flight matches. So they will be looking for more at home on Sunday against Liverpool who went through an exhausting Europa League quarter final against Dortmund on Thursday night. How much will that European success have taken out of Liverpool’s legs ahead of their trip to the south coast on Sunday? Nothing at stake for either of these although the Reds could yet have their eye on a top five finish. Liverpool are 6/5 to win, with the draw at 3/1 and Bournemouth at 5/2.

Liverpool are on a four match winning streak against Bournemouth in all competitions
Bournemouth have shipped 8 goals in their last three league games
The Cherries have won four of their last six in the top flight
Liverpool have never lost a match against Bournemouth in any competition
The Cherries have avoided relegation this season and they have done a pretty solid job lately. They have won four of their last six Premier League games, including two of their last three on home soil as well. They responded well to back to back setbacks against Spurs and Manchester City by putting a 2-1 win on the board at Aston Villa last time out. They haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last five played now though and both teams to score in this one is trading at a price of 3/4 and it is probably worth looking over 2.5 goals for a price of 10/11 as well with online betting site Betbright. Bournemouth have conceded eight goals in their last three Premier League games and as we saw on Thursday night, Liverpool are scoring goals well.
Eight times before these two have met and Liverpool hold a W6 D2 L0 record against the Cherries. They have played twice already this season, Liverpool taking 1-0 home wins in both the Premier League and the Capital One Cup against the Cherries. A Liverpool 1-0 correct score in this one is trading as a 15/2 option at online betting site Betbright. The Cherries will probably be hoping that Liverpool are a little exhausted after their Europa League excursions on Thursday night. Joshua King has been among the goals nicely for Bournemouth, scoring in each of their last three league wins and he is a 3/1 anytime goalscorer option against Liverpool which is the same price as Lewis Grabban. The Cherries have carded a W5 D4 L7 record at home this season.
Liverpool put up a huge effort in the Europa League on Thursday night against Dortmund, will that leave them a little short for this trip? Liverpool have won four of their last six in the top flight and have lost just one of their last seven (W4 D2 L1) so not bad form at all. They seem to be scoring pretty freely as well with twenty goals netted in their last seven league games. Daniel Sturridge is 6/5 in the anytime goalscorer market, with Divock Origi at 2/1 and Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho around the 9/4 mark. Good options. The Reds have produce a mixed bag of results on the road lately in the top flight with a W4 L4 in their last eight away from Anfield. They can be forgiven for having one on eye on the Merseyside derby in midweek too.
May be worth pushing for a draw in this one. Liverpool left nothing on the pitch in their European win on Thursday night and the Cherries have been pretty decent in the top flight recently. Neither have a great defence so look for both teams to hit the back of the net. A solid draw wouldn’t be a bad result at the end of the day for both of these.

Bournemouth v Liverpool Betting Preview
A great afternoon for Bournemouth, who get to host one of the top sides in the country. Is there any hint of a big FA Cup upset happening at Goldsands? The Championship side have seen wins dry up lately, but they will be full of vim and vigour in taking on the Reds. Will the Premier League side’s superior firepower see them cruise through to the Fifth Round?

Bournemouth v Liverpool Betting Tips:
The two sides have, interestingly, only ever met met before in the FA Cup and nowhere else. There have only been two of those meetings to0 and on each occasion, the first instances were drawn, with Liverpool winning the replays by a 4-1 scoreline. The Cherries are in the bottom half of the Championship, and haven’t won any of their last four (but drawing three). They took a comfortable 4-1 win over Burton Albion in the FA Cup Third round and they haven’t made it to the fifth round of the competition since 1988/89. This fixture doesn’t swell hopes that they are going to snap that run. Bournemouth have lost five fourth round ties since then. Punters are not going to be backing them to keep a clean sheet in this one most likely, and they have only kept the one clean sheet in 13 previous FA Cup fourth round matches (not counting replays).
To pile more miserable reading on top of that for Cherries fans, they have only won one of their last 14 FA Cup matches against top flight sides as well. Defensively they don’t look anywhere near sound enough to come away with anything out of this, despite having the support of the home crowd behind them. Lewis Grabban is their most likely route to goal and is trading at 7/2 in the anytime goalscorer market, which would be, in most people’s eyes, a consolation. Liverpool just look to be in too good form to even think about this being a potential banana skin for them. Decent form in the Premier League and a comfortable 2-0 home win over Stoke in the Third Round, really puts Brendan Rodgers’s men in the betting ascendancy here.
The obvious marks of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge are going to take the lion’s share of the goalscorer action for this one. Probably worth eying up Suarez as a First Goalscorer option at 7/4 with William Hill. Suarez has scored in five of his previous seven FA Cup appearances for the Reds. With their strike force and Daniel Sturridge back fit, there is a decent shot at some silverware in the competition for Liverpool and they should take this pretty seriously. There looks as if there will be a reasonable chance of this one going over 2.5 goals for a price of 4/9, as Liverpool have scored two or more goals in ten of their last thirteen games.
Bournemouth have only won two matches of 14 against top-half Championship sides this season, so the odds don’t stack up on them taking down Liverpool. The Reds should come through this one unscathed and would consider both teams to score at 8/11 for a bit of drama.
