Liverpool will be looking to maintain their 100% record against Bournemouth on Sunday – 1.30pm kick off UK time – when they travel to Dean Court to face Eddie Howe’s team. Sunday’s encounter will be just the second ever league meeting between the two sides, with Liverpool sealing a 1-0 win over Bournemouth back in August thanks to a Christian Benteke strike on his Anfield debut.
