Liverpool host AFC Bournemouth in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup on Wednesday evening – 7.45pm kick off UK time – and the Reds will be hoping for a similar result to the one recorded when the two sides met earlier in the season in the Premier League; a 1-0 victory for Liverpool back in August.
The Reds will also be hoping for a far better showing than what was produced under Brendan Rodgers in the third round tie against League Two side Carlisle Utd at Anfield a little over a month ago, with Liverpool needing penalties to progress after the match finished 1-1 after extra-time. Jürgen Klopp is still looking for his first victory since his appointment, with all three of his matches ending in draws.
Like the Reds, Bournemouth needed penalties to overcome their third round oppositio, progressing past Championship side Preston North End 3-2 on penalties. They eliminated League Two outfit Hartlepool Utd in the second round winning 4-0 at Victoria Park. This will be their third consecutive away tie in the competition this season
