Bournemouth vs Liverpool: Top free betting tips
Bournemouth take on Liverpool on Sunday 21 January in a match between two of the Premier League's most in-form teams. Can Bournemouth put a dent in Liverpool's title charge or will the Reds overcome this potential banana skin? Our Bournemouth vs Liverpool prediction is for an end-to-end match between two sides that will go for it from the word go and for the spoils to be shared at the end.
Match result prediction: Draw
Liverpool have done exceptionally well to top the Premier League coming into the new year, exceeding all expectations in the process. Unfortunately for them, they are missing some key players for the visit to Bournemouth which will unquestionably hamper them. Bournemouth, meanwhile, are flying and have picked up 19 points from the last 24 available. They haven't lost at home in the league since October and we can't see that changing on Sunday.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals
Liverpool are missing their main goalscoring outlet, Mo Salah, for this one while their most creative player, Trent Alexander-Arnold, will also be absent. Despite that, they still have plenty of attacking players capable of causing problems including Diogo Jota and Darwin Nunez. Meanwhile, all four of Bournemouth's last four matches have seen over 2.5 goals. Strap yourselves in, there is going to be plenty of goals in this one.
Correct score prediction: Bournemouth 2-2 Liverpool
Liverpool are missing some key players here but playing defensively isn't in their DNA so they will throw everything at Bournemouth to get the three points. Bournemouth will match them in that respect which means it will be a battle of the finishers. Dominic Solanke is the third-highest scorer in the Premier League this season and he will be more than a handful for the Liverpool defence.

Bournemouth predicted lineup vs Liverpool
Bournemouth have several injury problems ahead of the clash with Liverpool with Tyler Adams, Darren Randolph, Lloyd Kelly, Ryan Fredericks and Milos Kerkez all expected to miss the match. On top of that, Dango Ouattara and Antoine Semenyo are away at the Africa Cup of Nations and Marcos Senesi is suspended. Bournemouth let Hamed Traore join Napoli on loan earlier this week so he will also be unavailable.
Neto – Aarons, Mepham, Zabarnyi, Tavernier – Christie, Billing, Scott – Sinisterra, Solanke, Kluivert
Liverpool predicted lineup vs Bournemouth
Liverpool have a long list of absentees for this one as injuries begin to pile up at the worst possible time of the season. Joel Matip, Stefan Bajcetic, Thiago, Konstantinos Tsmikas, Andy Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Dominik Szoboszlai are all injured while Mo Salah and Wataru Endo are both away on international duty. It means that Jurgen Klopp is going to have to get imaginative with his team selection, particularly at full-back.
Alisson, Bradley, van Dijk, Konate Gomez – Mac Allister, Jones, Gravenberch – Jota, Nunez, Díaz

Cherries just happy to be safe
OptaJoe Stats now give #afcb only a 0.2% chance of getting relegated this season. They rate our chances of a top 6 finish higher than that at 0.6%. Yes, a long way to go but for us to be considered virtually safe in January is dream land pic.twitter.com/B57IejEeK5
