Liverpool welcome the visitors Bournemouth in the English Premiere League – Round 26. The match will be held on Saturday, February, 9th, at the Anfield (Liverpool).
The leading Liverpool have been seemingly receding lately, as they featured 2 draws. Quite an unpleasant thing, as Manchester City and Tottenham are presently just 3 and 5 points behind respectively. The 2 stalemates, however, may be seen as a pure bad luck though. In the clash against Leicester City, Mane scored yet in the 3rd minute, but Liverpool allowed in the end of the half-time. That said, they pressed the ‘Foxes’ throughout the 2nd half. Their possession was 71%, they made 6 hits on target, but failed to net. The encounter against West Ham United saw a similar scenario.

The visiting Bournemouth are middle-class players. They currently take the 10th line in the standings, demonstrating no ambitions for the European places, running 10 points above the relegation zone. Their home performance is decent. In the last round, they beat Chelsea, 4:0! In outings, they provide points for nearly all sides. The last 10 trips were failing. Overall, the ‘Cherries’ lost in 9 trips. Of these, they conceded 7 times yet in the 1st half. Moreover, they dropped out the Cup tournament a month ago and conceded to Brighton & Hove Albion in the 1st half.
The gulf in the sides’ class and material standing does not need to be repeated, pretty clearly, it benefits the hosts. Now the calendar offers Liverpool a meeting with bleak in outings Bournemouth, for the leaders to attain a win and restore their former confidence. They will most likely do. What is more, they are expected to take the lead in the 1st half as the 18th Cardiff City did in the last round when they welcomed Bournemouth, same as Liverpool did in 7 of 10 winning matches at home. The ‘Cherries’ will probably suffer a defeat against the furious Liverpool, yet on their turf, both in the 1st half and in the match overall. They are used to it, actually. In 5 of 7 latest clashes with the leaders, they lost like this.
Prediction for the match: Liverpool to win in the first half-time/Liverpool to win home.
