Liverpool vs Bournemouth
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 27 August 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
The Reds are slowly piling pressure upon themselves each passing match-day. They are yet to register a win in this new season and as such fans are turning desperate. Likely, great expectations will be on this upcoming encounter at Anfield, where they take on the newly-promoted Bournemouth.
This fixture could not have come at a better time for the 6-time European champions. They were just defeated by their arch-rivals Manchester United, who were supposed to be one of the worst teams in the league based on recent form.
Now all attention will turn towards Jurgen Klopp’s team. If they continue this current stretch of performances, it is a doubt if they will be able to secure even a top-4 finish.
Before things turn really ugly it is important for them that they find their confidence back. As such a huge win this weekend is practically a necessity for them.
Bournemouth are finding it hard to perform against the veterans of the top flight. They have a 100 percentage losing record so far barring their opening day fixture. In addition, only one other team has let in more goals than them in the entire tournament as well.
Going on they also have a poor head-to-head record against this rival over the years and taking into account all these observations expect a much-needed victory for Liverpool this Saturday.

Liverpool vs Bournemouth Prediction & Analysis
The Reds might be going through a poor stretch of performances at the moment. But they had defeated Manchester City in the Community Shield just a few weeks before. And most importantly they are at Anfield this weekend, which has been their fort for the past several decades.
As always, they have managed to deliver good results at this venue over the course of the past several months.
And this is where the recently-promoted Bournemouth have to come. Do note that they are also going through a worrying series of results.
Considering these observations as well as the head-to-head superiority of Liverpool, expect a convincing victory for them this weekend.
