Bournemouth vs Liverpool Match Preview
Bournemouth will hope to find a way to end their winless run in the Premier League when they welcome free-scoring Liverpool this weekend. This Bournemouth vs Liverpool game is a not-lose for both the sides and will be played at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday, December 17, so read the match preview, betting tips and predictions for this game.
Bournemouth are coming into the game on the back of an impressive display against Manchester United in the midweek, that they eventually lost 1-0. Such was their performance that they deserved at least a point from that encounter, although what matters now is the fact that they didn’t pick any. That loss extended their winless run in the Premier League to five games and they face a tricky period before Christmas where they are set to play Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester City. The Cherries are currently 14th in the league (16pts, W4, D4, L9) but only two points above the relegation zone. Manager Eddie Howe will hope for better luck when their difficult run of fixtures starting with the Bournemouth vs Liverpool fixture this Sunday.
Liverpool too are in dire need of a victory after two disappointing draws in matches they are supposed to win. The 1-1 home draw against bitter rivals Everton was as much about their poor luck as about their inadequacies at the back. They followed that up with another discouraging 0-0 draw against West Brom, leaving them outside the top four. Liverpool are currently fifth in the league after 17 games (31pts, W8, D7, L2). They are on the same points as fourth-placed Tottenham and sixth-placed Burnley, but it is the goal difference that sets the three sides apart. The Reds have been scoring goals for fun and have 12 goals in their three trips away. It is their defence that has been a concern with Liverpool conceding in all but one of their away games.

Bournemouth vs Liverpool Predictions
Do not go by what Liverpool have achieved in their last two league games because those are more of an aberration than a norm. We believe that Liverpool will do away with their rotation, which means a return to their striking troika who should find goals with ease. Back the visitors to win, but more importantly, this Bournemouth vs Liverpool game could witness over 2.5 goals, so that’s the betting tip for this match.
