STAR PREVIEW Liverpool v Bournemouth

first_img[dropcap]N[/dropcap]ice and easy with Man City yesterday and a good profit on the recommended bet.The last two times Liverpool have played Bournemouth it’s finished 4-1 to the Reds – although in fairness those matches were played in 1927 and 1968 – a long time between drinks on the stats front !!Liverpool started their new campaign with a win against Stoke but weren’t over convincing and arguably lucky to get all three points with their late goal.Bournemouth’s rise to the top flight of English football has been nothing short of miraculous but the sad reality is that they are already amongst the three favourites to go straight back down.AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe said: “Our aim is not to outplay Liverpool, or outpass Liverpool, or any nonsense like that. Our aim is to try and win the game. Then how we do that, and how you go about best doing that, that is down to how you see the game, so it’s not a competition on passes, it’s a competition on winning the game. The football really is irrelevant, it’s about finding a way to be competitive.”Team News:Liverpool XI: Mignolet, Clyne, Lovren, Skrtel, Gomez, Henderson, Milner, Coutinho, Lallana, Ibe, BentekeSubs: Bogdan, Toure, Firmino, Moreno, Can, Origi, IngsBournemouth XI: Boruc, Francis, Elphick, Cook, Daniels, Ritchie, O’Kane, Surman, Gradel, King, WilsonSubs: Federici, Smith, Distin, Mings, Gosling, Pugh, TomlinLiverpool v BournemouthPremier League8pm SKYHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(maximum 10 matches)Dec 2014 Capital One Cup Bournemouth 1-3 LiverpoolJan 2014 English FA Cup Bournemouth 0-2 LiverpoolJan 1968 English FA Cup Liverpool 4-1 BournemouthJan 1968 English FA Cup Bournemouth 0-0 LiverpoolJan 1927 English FA Cup Liverpool 4-1 BournemouthJan 1927 English FA Cup Bournemouth 1-1 LiverpoolAs much as my heart would like to see the Cherries win – my head says Liverpool HT/FT makes most appeal at around 6/5 makes most appeal with Star Sports.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-50 points)BACK LIVERPOOL HT/FT for 10 points at around 6/5 with Star SportsRETURN SINCE START OF WORLD CUP: PROFIT 126.80 POINTSWhat’s your view?
