Bournemouth are in awful form away from home right now. They’ve lost their last eight on the road in all competitions, failing to score in five of the last six. That’s why we’re going against both teams to score predictions, priced at 20/23 with Betfair. Liverpool are evens with the same bookmaker to beat Bournemouth to nil for the fourth time in a row, and 7/1 to ease to a comfortable 3-0 victory.
Liverpool to win to nil
Sadio Mane has scored in each of Liverpool’s last three games, and opened the scoring in their last two. The Senegal international has 11 Premier League goals to his name so far this term, and is 17/4 with Betway to add to that by breaking the deadlock on Saturday. He is 23/20 with the same bookie in the anytime market, and 29/1 to strike first in a 3-0 Liverpool win.
Sadio Mane to score first
Liverpool thrashed Bournemouth 4-0 earlier this season, and beat them by the same score away from home last term. The Reds need to get back to winning ways so they should be at it from the off on Saturday. If they get an early goal, a 4-0 win would become more likely and it’s 11/1 with bet365 in your football score predictions. If you want football tips with big odds, add Mohamed Salah as the first scorer for 38/1.

Team news and form
Last six: LLWWDD
Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum are both doubts for these Liverpool vs Bournemouth predictions, after missing their team’s draw at West Ham on Monday. Whether they’re fit or not, Adam Lallana will hope to start again following an encouraging performance at the London Stadium. Trent Alexander-Arnold could return from a knee injury, but fellow defenders Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren are out.
Last six: DLLWWL
Callum Wilson is a big miss for the visitors, as he continues to recover from minor knee surgery. David Brooks is also out for a few weeks, in another blow to Cherries boss Eddie Howe’s attacking options. Dominic Solanke made his debut in the defeat at Cardiff City though, which is a positive. The striker could start up front against the team he left in the January transfer window. Nathaniel Clyne is still on Liverpool’s books and cannot play, while Simon Francis and Lewis Cook are out with knee injuries.
Liverpool vs Bournemouth prediction, preview and betting tips
It’s very early for Liverpool to be getting the title jitters. Jurgen Klopp has done his best to project an air of calm this week, following back-to-back draws. The Reds would’ve had a seven-point lead if they’d beaten Leicester City last week. However, they could start these football predictions second on goal difference if Manchester City beat Everton on Wednesday night.
Liverpool will still have a game in hand on their title rivals, but it’s a psychological blow nonetheless. Klopp has tried to stress that missing out on the title doesn’t mean you actually lose anything, as you never had the title in the first place. It’s mind games of sorts, but the Reds boss prefers to focus on what can be gained. How the German boss deals with his players’ mindsets and man-manages his squad is going to be crucial in the face of Manchester City’s challenge, which is sure to be fierce.
The Reds have thrown away leads in their last two games to draw both matches 1-1. However, they haven’t conceded a goal against Bournemouth in the last three meetings between the sides. Klopp’s side have won those games by an aggregate score of 11-0, so they must be confident ahead of this Liverpool v Bournemouth prediction. Even more so considering their form at Anfield, where they’re undefeated in 33 Premier League matches.
It doesn’t get any better for Bournemouth when you take their away form into account. The Cherries have lost their last seven on the road in the Premier League. They’ve only scored three goals in the process, and one in the last five. Saturday’s defeat at Cardiff City came in difficult circumstances following Emiliano Sala’s tragic plane crash, but it’s their away form that’s seen Howe’s side slip to 10th in the table. They’re still having a good season, but they’re unlikely to get anything from this game.
The teams have met 10 times in the last five years in all competitions. Liverpool have won eight of those matches, and six without conceding a goal. That’s why we’re backing the Reds to win this game to nil in our Liverpool vs Bournemouth betting tips. Klopp’s side have won two of the last three meetings 4-0, and a Liverpool win with over 3.5 goals is 13/10 with Betway. The Cherries have been losing at half-time and full-time in five of their last seven away games. The same here is 4/6.
Liverpool vs Bournemouth first goalscorer predictions
There’s no surprise who the favourite is for the first goal in this game. Mohamed Salah is 14/5 to break the deadlock, with what would be the Premier League top scorer’s 17th strike of the season. The Egyptian has nine goals in his last 10 league games, but is looking for his first in three here. Josh King has scored three times in his last three appearances and has first goalscorer odds of 13/1, while Dominic Solanke is available at 15/1 in the same market as he aims to upset his old employers.
