Both teams have been finding the back of the net lately, making this clash between Bournemouth and Premier League leaders Liverpool promising for another high-scoring spectacle on Sunday.
Bournemouth, under the guidance of Andoni Iraola in recent months, have shown an impressive resurgence, winning seven out of their last nine competitive matches and scoring a remarkable 22 goals during this period. While defeating the league leaders might be a formidable task, it’s not entirely out of reach for them to secure a positive result.
Liverpool, on the other hand, has been riding a wave of success in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup over the past couple of weeks, extending their unbeaten streak to seven games. Their last domestic defeat dates back to a match against Spurs in September. The Reds boast the second-best attacking record in the top-flight and the best defensive record. However, with just two clean sheets in their last six games, their defense could face a challenge against the free-scoring Bournemouth.
Anticipate both teams to score at the Vitality Stadium, with Mohamed Salah currently on international duty, Bournemouth might just surprise. They’ve lost only one of their last nine games and managed a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa at home last month. Liverpool has had two draws in their last four league matches, so a 2-2 scoreline prediction could be a sensible bet.
In the anytime goalscorer market, Dominic Solanke is an appealing option. The 26-year-old has been in fine form, with only Erling Haaland and Mohamed Salah scoring more Premier League goals than him this season. Solanke has found the back of the net five times in his last four outings.
