Today sees Liverpool take on Eddie Howe’s struggling Bournemouth. The Cherries have lost four games in a row and won’t have much hope of rescuing that stat against the league leaders. Here is the confirmed Liverpool lineup to face Bournemouth.
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.
