Liverpool will be confident of leapfrogging Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table when they face Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon and the Merseysiders will hope that Chelsea will do them a favour by beating the Citizens later the same day. Liverpool and Manchester City have pulled themselves clear of the rest of the chasing pack at the top of the Premier League table, however the Citizens face the biggest test this weekend with a tough trip to Stamford Bridge. That said, Jurgen Klopp’s men won’t be in line for an easy ride either with the Cherries sitting seventh in the Premier League table, thanks in no small part to their decent home form. Nevertheless the visiting Reds have dropped just four points in their eight away games this season and we don’t envisage them suffering their first Premier League defeat of the campaign this weekend, the bookmakers giving away free bets on AFC Bournemouth v Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp was able to ring a few changes and leave out a few key players for the midweek trip to Burnley, however that had little effect on the result with Liverpool beating Burnley 3-1 on the night. Klopp’s side will be in for a much sterner test when they face the Cherries this weekend and the Reds boss is unlikely to rest any of his first-choice players this time around, however despite Bournemouth having had an extra days’ rest ahead of this outing, we don’t envisage anything other than a routine away win at Dean Court on Saturday afternoon with the home side managing nothing other than a consolation goal, Ladbrokes Bookmakers going 21/10 on Liverpool to win and both teams to score.
