Dean Court is the last place Liverpool should want to visit

You have to fear for Liverpool a bit. Coming to Dean Court in a game sandwiched between Man Utd and Arsenal is perhaps not going to be such a simple game as Brendan Rodgers would have hoped for. AFCB are scoring heavily at home even if they are also allowing the opposition some joy as well, in recent matches, in their inability to keep clean sheets. But confidence is sky high among the Cherries squad and Eddie Howe knows that whatever team he puts out against Liverpool is going to be a team that has an excellent chance of winning the game.

I don't believe that AFCB fans have really considered that the team is really in touching distance of a semi-final tie in the Capital One Cup. It is just a great pleasure to play a team like Liverpool once again having enjoyed the spectacle last year. A win though is something that the fans are starting to feel is really possible against Liverpool. I don't even feel that it matters whether it was Liverpool or another team in the Premier League. Forget Liverpool's poor run, AFCB would give in inform Liverpool side a difficult game at home and being an evening match just adds a little more excitement to the tie and a better possibility of a home win in my book as the atmosphere will be something special.

I don't think Eddie Howe needs to over complicate sorting out a plot to get the better of Liverpool. The players have already shown that they can dismantle sides when they are on their game and the fact that it is Liverpool in the other half will be enough to get AFCB's players doing everything they can to hit that top form. 
Gerrard and Skrtel may do battle again against AFCB.
Could Liverpool be embarrassed on the night? It is possible and it is what makes this particular game a real marker to see just how far AFCB have come. 

Breaking News: Mario Balotelli is out with a groin strain for this match, says the Liverpool Echo. Perhaps Rickie Lambert will start up front for Liverpool.
