Former Red Talks Klopp Influence Ahead of Bournemouth Clash

Former Red Talks Klopp Influence Ahead of Bournemouth Clash

If I would now be too frustrated about that, it would not make sense too much.

"They deserved something at Manchester United".

Just four days on from being held to a 0-0 draw at Anfield by West Brom, the Reds face a tricky Premier League trip to the Vitality Stadium. Helping Liverpool to the knockout stages of this years Champions League, the Egyptian forward could become the first Liverpool player to score at least 20 league and cup goals in a single season since Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge both did so in 2013-14. Emre Can will be unavailable too as he serves a one-match suspension.

Three players are certain to miss the game, with Alberto Moreno (ankle), Joel Matip (adductor) and Nathaniel Clyne (back) on the treatment table, and only likely to return following the turn of the year. But, Daniel Sturridge is a major doubt due to a hamstring niggle, and is unlikely to feature on Sunday.

England midfielder Adam Lallana, who has made only one appearance this season because of a thigh injury, is set to be named in the squad. Simon Mignolet is expected to start after missing the game against West Brom due to a swollen ankle. With all four starting, the Liverpool boss would be hoping his side's profligate ways are a thing of the past.

Last season's two meetings produced a total of 11 goals - only the games between Crystal Palace and Swansea (12 goals) yielded more in 2016-17.

At his fifth year at the lead of Burnley, Dyche is enjoying a particularly positive moment as his men stand sixth in the Premier League - sharing the same points as Tottenham and Liverpool - and have played some very enjoyable football so far.

Will Defoe continue a recent upturn in form? With Bournemouth only picking up one Premier League home win since the middle of September, coupled with Liverpool's eye-catching record against teams outside the top six, Liverpool and Premier League top scorer Mohamed Salah will look to carry on their 11 match unbeaten run. But, things haven't been easy for the veteran striker this season, having managed just three goals in 14 Premier League outings.

In many ways this is the flawless game for Liverpool, because Bournemouth will not sit in.

"They have added quality, they've got a well-known attack with pace, technique and movement".

"Yes, of course Bournemouth lost - but they had a proper performance there".

Howe also praised his Liverpool counterpart's character and noted that Klopp acted admirably when Bournemouth notched their comeback win last season.
