Two teams that had to make do with a point in their opening Premier League fixtures last time out go head-to-head at Anfield on Saturday, as Liverpool entertain Bournemouth. The kick-off time is 15:00 BST.
Jurgen Klopp’s men will head into this weekend’s encounter with a point to prove having been outplayed for large spells of their 1-1 draw against Chelsea, while Andoni Iraola’s men will be feeling better about themselves having snapped a run of four league defeats by playing out a 1-1 stalemate against West Ham United.

Liverpool vs Bournemouth predictions
Prediction 1: Liverpool to win
While Bournemouth came out on top in the most recent encounter, Liverpool have won 12 of the last 14 meetings between the teams and six of the seven home matches since 2014. We are tipping the Reds to get the job this weekend.
Prediction 2: Liverpool to score in the first half
Luis Diaz’s opener against Chelsea last time out saw Liverpool find the back of the net in the first half for the seventh game in a row. We expect them to make another fast start here, especially given their attacking prowess on home turf.
Prediction 3: Over 8.5 corners
Liverpool’s high-energy attacking play, characterised by the full-backs providing width, has seen them win a lot of corners in matches. Only two teams in the Premier League last season averaged more corners per game than Liverpool, and we can see Saturday’s affair yielding at least nine.
Liverpool recent form
With three wins and two draws, Liverpool have avoided defeat in five of their last six matches, with a 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in pre-season being the only exception.
Bournemouth recent form
Bournemouth have blown hot and cold in recent weeks, winning three and losing two of their last five outings prior to Saturday’s share of the spoils against West Ham United.
