AFC Bournemouth V Liverpool: Preview and Possible XI

Premier League: Matchweek 16

  • Venue: Vitality Stadium
  • Date: Saturday, December 8
  • Kick-off time: 4:15 PM

Liverpool are looking for a fifth straight Premier League victory as they visit AFC Bournemouth, who are seeking to build on Tuesday’s home win over Huddersfield Town and climb into the top six. The victory would see the Reds leapfrog Manchester City into first.


AFC Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson has scored eight goals in his 15 Premier League matches this season. He last scored more in a league campaign in 2014/15, with 20 goals in 45 Championship fixtures when the Cherries were promoted.

Liverpool have triumphed in four of their six Premier League matches against AFC Bournemouth and won both of last season’s meetings by an aggregate score of 7-0.

Alisson has remained unbeaten in his opening 15 Premier League matches as a Liverpool player, equalling the PL club record set by Javier Mascherano in November 2007. He could now move ahead of the Argentinian and set a new mark.

James Milner could make his 500th Premier League appearance in this match, becoming the 13th player to reach this landmark. He would become the second youngest to do so, aged 32 years 338 days, behind only Gareth Barry.


Bournemouth: Begovic, Francis, S Cook, Ake, Daniels, Lerma, Stanislas, Brooks, Fraser, Wilson, King, Boruc, Rico, Mings, Surman, Ibe, Mousset, Defoe.

Liverpool:  Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Fabinho, Keita, Shaqiri, Salah, Firmino

  • Referee: Lee Mason
  • Assistants: Eddie Smart, Marc Perry
