Bournemouth vs Liverpool

There is no doubt that this is one of the biggest fixture that Bournemouth have hosted in a few years. I will remind You that a 2:0 win over Manchester United back in 1984 is the biggest result in their history. Eddie Howe admitted last weekend that there is a lot of excitement in the area with Liverpool due to visit and it was hard to keep the players focused on their league match against Watford. The side have shown enough form in recent weeks. Bournemouth have lost only one of their last seven games in all competitions, although that was a 3:0 loss at Wigan Athletic, while they are coming into this game off the back of a four-games unbeaten run at home. They have also won two of their last four games at home in all competitions, but Liverpool will provide the biggest test of their credentials here all season. The goalkeeper Lee Camp is available, having been ineligible for the third-round win over Burton. Most probably the manager Eddie Howe will select the same line up that drew 1:1 with Watford.Liverpool have only one target this season, finishing in the top four of the Premier League. They have a huge Merseyside derby to play on Tuesday and I expect the manager Brendan Rodgers to rest some of his key players. Liverpool had won three straight games in all competitions before this game, but failed to beat Aston Villa last weekend and played only a 2:2 draw. Lot of players are struggling with injuries, with Lukas Leiva and Glen Johnson being the latest injury victims. Daniel Agger (calf), Jose Enrique (knee) and Mamadou Sakho (hamstring) are all still absent. I expect a tight match at Dean Court. Liverpool will probably play without some key players and therefore I expect the hosts to stay at least unbeaten.
