Bournemouth welcome Liverpool to the Vitality Stadium for the Premier League's early game this coming Saturday.
Eddie Howe's side recently ended a run of four consecutive defeats with a 2-1 win at home to Huddersfield. However, the Cherries know they'll need to be at their best if they are to get anything from this game.
The Reds meanwhile fought back to beat Burnley 3-1 in midweek to remain unbeaten in the Premier League, and know a win in the early kick off can, albeit temporarily, put them top of the league ahead of Manchester City's clash against Chelsea later in the day.
Here's 90min's preview ahead of the game on the south coast:
