AFC Bournemouth hosts the leader Liverpool at the Vitality Stadium
AFC Bournemouth hosts the leader Liverpool at the Vitality Stadium in a match from the 16th round of the Premier League. Let’s take a look at this fixture in our English Premier League predictions for today.
Because of four consecutive losses in the league, AFC Bournemouth lost their place in the Top 10 of the English elite. Right now the Cherries are 12th in the standings with 16 points and a record of 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses. They are just 2 points above the 18th Everton and the relegation zone, so it’s in their best interest to stop this bad run of consecutive losses.
During the week Bournemouth visited Crystal Palace in the capital and suffered a 0-1 defeat. Just 14 minutes before the end Jeffery Schlupp put the ball behind Aaron Ramsdale’s back and won the game for Palace.
This is a tough situation for the manager Eddie Howe. He must find a way to make his players confident again. But their next game is going to be a brutal one.
Liverpool are looking unstoppable in the Premier League this season. In 15 games played this season, the Reds won 14 of them and only made one draw. With 8 points advantage in front of the second Leicester City, Liverpool look destined to win the Premier League this season.
In their last game the European champions once again showed their impressive power. The Reds hosted Everton in the Merseyside derby and won with 5-2. Divock Origi scored a brace for the hosts, while Sadio Mane, Xherdan Shaqiri and Georginio Wijnaldum also scored past Jordan Pickford. In this game the manager Jurgen Klopp made some rotations, giving a break to Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.
In our English Premier League predictions we can make the conclusion that Liverpool are looking like a safe bet against Bournemouth on Saturday. The Cherries are in an awful form right now and they are facing the best team in the country. You can do the math here.
