AFCB will go after their second double of the season at Anfield

Beating Liverpool at Anfield is no easy challenge, but AFCB just may be playing the Reds at a time when they are a little more vulnerable than usual because of some injuries to key players. Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana and Saido Mane could all be missing from Klopp's line up and while Liverpool are closing in on a top four finish, the Cherries usually perform well at Anfield.
Can AFCB repeat their heroics of the last time they played Liverpool?
Looking at the results in 2017 you'll only find Chelsea and Swansea good enough to have come away with some points from Anfield in the league. Liverpool have been very strong at home and their recent win over Everton in the Merseyside derby will have made their fans extremely happy. They can still be caught for a top four place though and it is the lower half teams that have caused Liverpool more problems than most in getting points on the board.


Origi is likely to come into the starting line up for the injured Mane, although their are suggestions that Daniel Sturridge could be back having done some running this week in training. The quality of Origi is there to be seen for all by just seeing what he did to Everton moments after coming on to replace Mane. But Klopp is certainly sticking some plasters over other areas of his team. James Milner has had to be converted into a fall-back, and Lucas and Can are perhaps not the strongest names he could have in midfield. It is Matip that gives them a much more solid back four and somehow Eddie Howe has to move play away from him if the Cherries are going to find ways in on goal.

The fire power of Bournemouth was fairly blunt at Southampton and it is possible that Eddie may change the attack now. The energy and improvisation of Jack Wilshere may be hard to ignore for much longer and Junior Stanislas is also now going to come into the manager's thoughts. Getting another double for the season would be a big moment for AFCB and to add Liverpool to the double win over Swansea would be almost enough to make the Cherries safe.
