Liverpool travel to take on Premier League rivals Bournemouth today in a much-anticipated clash at the Vitality Stadium.
Jurgen Klopp’s men will be desperate to record three points against the Cherries – especially after division pacesetters Chelsea won away at Manchester City in impressive fashion yesterday.

The Merseysiders have made two changes from the team that beat Sunderland 2-0 last weekend, with the depth of the Anfield squad being put to the test.
Star man Philippe Coutinho is unavailable through injury and will be on the sidelines for some time, so Divock Origi comes into the Liverpool front three.
The Reds defence is the same as the one that kept a clean sheet against Sunderland, except Luvas Leiva comes in for Joel Matip at centre-half.
Emre Can, Georginio Wijnaldum and captain Jordan Henderson anchor the side from the heart of midfield.
A win for Liverpool will see Klopp’s side leapfrog Arsenal into second place and reduced Chelsea’s lead at the top to a solitary point.
Confirmed Liverpool starting XI vs Bournemouth:
Karius; Clyne, Lucas, Lovren, Milner; Can, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Mane, Origi, Firmino
