Liverpool hosting AFC Bournemouth in a match from the 29th round
After suffering three losses in their last four games in the Premier League Liverpool are now hosting AFC Bournemouth in a match from the 29th round of the competition. The goal in front of the Reds could be just one here – the win. Let’s preview it in our English Premier League predictions.
For Liverpool everything started with their defeat against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League. This negative result was followed by a win against West Ham United, but in the next two matches Jurgen Klopp’s team lost again – versus Watford and against Chelsea, which kicked them out of the FA Cup.
Some might joke that for Liverpool this is happening since the captain Jordan Henderson got injured. Of course, this couldn’t be the main reason for Liverpool’s three defeats lately. But the truth is that no team is unbeatable and it’s pretty normal even for the best clubs to lose games.
The most important thing for Liverpool is that the team is still enjoying 22 points advantage over the second Manchester City. We could say the Premier League title is already in the bag for Liverpool – they are going to win the league for a first time since 30 years.
AFC Bourmemouth on the other hand are in the relegation zone being 18th with 27 points. For the Cherries that’s a difficult time, there’s no doubt about that. The club is no more a midtable performer. Now Bournemouth are stick in a race for survival.
In their last three league games Bournemouth won just one point. This happened against Chelsea in the previous round at the Vitality Road. It was a nice result for the club, but the Cherries are still in the danger zone. They need points.
In our English Premier League predictions for this fixture between Liverpool and AFC Bournemouth we can share the opinion that the Reds will get back to winning. Liverpool are too strong to let this negative run continue.
