Jurgen Klopp’s men boast of one of the deadliest attacks in the English top-flight and will be looking to unleash it on Eddie Howe’s side this weekend

Liverpool entertain Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday evening for their English Premier League encounter.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will be coming into this game on the back of their impressive 5-1 aggregate win over Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-final, thus securing a place in the last four of the competition where they will face AS Roma.

Last weekend, they settled for a goalless draw against their Merseyside foes Everton at the Goodison Park without the attacking pair of Mohammed Salah and Roberto Firmino and with both players available for this outing, they are in good stead to return to winning ways.

They edge the Cherries on head to head having secured maximum points in seven of their last eight meetings. They have also been turning heads on their turf recently, winning all but one of their previous five games. BetKing has thus tagged them as hot favourites for this tie at the price of (1.65).

A share of spoils at the end of 90 minutes of action is available at the juicy offer of (2.98).

Bournemouth held Crystal Palace to a 2-2 draw in their last outing at the Vitality Stadium, making it their second consecutive draw and they will be hoping to nick a victory against their glamorous hosts.

However, given that they have only managed to claim the three points in one of their last seven duels, the bookmakers have tagged them as underdogs at the odds of (7.90).

The Reds are the second highest scoring side in the top-flight this term with 75 goals which indicates that goals will likely be at a premium here. The betting firm therefore has put up (2.08) for both sides to score and over 2.5 goals to come forth in the encounter.

Liverpool’s last five games produced 12 goals, with the second half accounting for seven of the goals. As a result of that, Betking has quoted (1.98) for that period to bring forth most of the goals.
