Liverpool vs Bournemouth betting tips and predictions for the 12:30pm kick-off in the Premier League on 7/3/2020 and how to get free bets for Cheltenham after betting on this match.
Liverpool’s long unbeaten run finally came to an abrupt end with a 3-0 defeat to Watford last Saturday. The Reds have hit somewhat of a sticky patch having also lost to Atletico Madrid and Chelsea in the Champions League and FA Cup respectively. They have a massive Champions League game in midweek so Jurgen Klopp might rest one or two players for this game.
Bournemouth are still in the relegation zone and need to pick up points, but this is their most difficult fixture left this season and they won’t expect anything, so if Liverpool do rest players and give Bournemouth a chance, it could be interesting. See our Liverpool vs Bournemouth predictions below.
Liverpool have conceded two or more in each of their last three games in all competitions. They did not concede two goals in any of their first 26 league games.
The Reds have failed to score in any of their recent three defeats. Mo Salah did not have a shot on target in their last league game.
Bournemouth come into this match in 18th place, level with Watford and West Ham on points.
The Cherries drew 2-2 with Chelsea in their last league fixture.
11 of Liverpool’s last 12 league games have featured one goal or fewer in the first half. The Reds haven’t been as free scoring as they were in the first half of the season and their recent rough patch may have knocked their confidence.
Recently, Liverpool have taken a while to get things going, not scoring until the second half in 3-0 and 4-0 wins.
Bournemouth’s last two league matches have followed a similar pattern. Despite losing 3-0 to Burnley and drawing 2-2 with Chelsea, only one goal was scored in the first half of either game. With the Champions League second leg on the horizon, rotation could also play a role.
Liverpool’s long run of clean sheets seems a distant memory after a torrid week. Klopp’s side have shipped an average of two goals a game in their last four fixtures in all competitions and that has to be considered when picking our Liverpool vs Bournemouth predictions.
If Bournemouth are to get on the scoresheet, their most likely scorer at this time is certainly Josh King. The Norwegian international netted against Chelsea and the Cherries grabbed a vital point last weekend. It may be his first goal in a number of weeks but King has shown his quality in the Premier League before and his confidence will be high.
There’s every chance Liverpool bounce straight back with a win against Bournemouth but if they were ever to drop points to Bournemouth it is now.
Three defeats in their last four, unbeaten run gone, out of the FA Cup and behind in their Champions League tie with the crucial fixture just days away. The league title is surely already in the bag and with the prospect of going unbeaten gone, the focus may shift to their midweek game.
