Following Premier League leaders Chelsea recording an impressive win over Manchester City on Saturday, Liverpool return to action with a tricky trip to face Bournemouth on Sunday.
The Reds have been in blistering form under Jurgen Klopp this season but their title ambitions are set to be put to the test in upcoming weeks.

Injuries to key man Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge are set to put the Anfield outfit’s strength-in-depth to the test, with changes in the Liverpool side at the Vitality Stadium guaranteed.
Emre Can should get another start in the midfield trident, while Divock Origi could well lead the line for the visitors.
Although Lallana is set to undergo a late fitness test, it is likely that the England international would only feature from the bench if he is available.
Origi’s place in the team would push Roberto Firmino out to one of the wings, with the Brazilian overcoming a small knock from the win over Sunderland last time out.
Other than that, the defensive end of the pitch will undoubtedly remain unchanged, as Klopp’s side look to overcome the Cherries and keep pressure on at the top of the Premier League table.
Predicted Liverpool starting XI:
Karius; Clyne, Matip, Lovren, Milner; Can, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Mane, Origi, Firmino
