Goalkeeper: Alisson

The Brazilian is back between the sticks after missing the Merseyside Derby through suspension.

Right back: Joe Gomez

Trent had a fantastic game against The Ev but Joe Gomez is preferred today.

Centre back: Virgil van Dijk

Our number four will be too strong and fast for the frail Cherries attack.

Centre back: Dejan Lovren

The Croatian pulled off a superb long ball for Divock Origi’s second goal, he deserves his place in the Liverpool lineup against Bournemouth.

Left back: Andy Robertson

Robbo was as tenacious as ever in midweek, we will need all of his fitness again today.

Defensive midfield: Jordan Henderson

 

Our skipper started on the bench against The Ev but is back in the Liverpool lineup to face Bournemouth.

Defensive midfield: James Milner

The veteran workhorse had a blinder against Everton and keeps his place.

Attacking midfield: Naby Keita

A series of injuries have kept the midfielder out of the side but he is fit to start today.

Left wing: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

The Ox is back in the side and will be keeping the tempo high.

Right wing: Mo Salah

The Egyptian King has been in a sticky patch of late, this is the ideal game for him to recover his form.

Striker: Bobby Firmino

The Brazilian was on the bench for the derby win, he should be fully energised for today.
