Goalkeeper: Alisson

After missing the midweek derby due to suspension, the Brazilian reclaims his place between the sticks.

Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold

The Scouser in our team was as Scouse as anything against Everton – going in hard on his opponents and pinging some superb passes.

Centre back: Virgil van Dijk

Big Virg may have been lucky to not have given away a penalty against The Ev, he should prove too much for the Bournemouth attack.

Centre back: Dejan Lovren

The Croatian pulled out a peach of a ball to assist Divock Origi’s second goal against Everton.

Left back: Andy Robertson

The Scotsman rattled the Blues midweek with his antics, he’s nailed on for the Liverpool lineup against Bournemouth.

Defensive midfield: Jordan Henderson

 

The captain dropped to the bench midweek and should be fully energised as a result.

Defensive midfield: Gini Wijnaldum

The Dutchman bagged a late goal against The Ev and will be buzzing to get back out there on Saturday.

Attacking midfield: Roberto Firmino

A bold call but we’re hoping that the gaffer doesn’t drop Divock Origi. Firmino was an attacking midfielder when he arrived at Anfield.

Right wing: Mo Salah

The Egyptian King hasn’t been in the best of form of late, fingers crossed a midweek rest has done him some good.

Striker: Divock Origi

The Liverpool legend netted two superlative goals against Everton, he deserves a place in the Liverpool lineup against Bournemouth.

Left wing: Sadio Mane

There are no words for how impressive this man has been of late, he terrorised the Blues on Wednesday.
