Liverpool handed triple injury boost ahead of Bournemouth

Liverpool vs Bournemouth

Liverpool host Bournemouth on Saturday as they look to put an end to their dip in form.

The Reds have now drawn their last two league games vs Leicester and West Ham, two sides who have not been in great form.

As a result, Liverpool have lost their seven-point lead at the top of the table and have dropped down to 2nd place.

However, Manchester City do have a game in hand on Liverpool and have a tough test vs Chelsea this weekend.

So, a win vs Bournemouth at Anfield is vital on Saturday, especially given Bournemouth have the worst defensive record of the top 16 Premier League teams.

The Cherries will also have to face Liverpool without Callum Wilson and David Brooks.

Liverpool’s injury boost before Bournemouth

While Bournemouth are without several top stars this weekend, Liverpool could welcome back three of theirs.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has missed Liverpool’s last three league matches but has returned to full training this week and could feature vs Bournemouth.

As have Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum.

However, Liverpool will be without Dejan Lovren who is still recovering from a hamstring problem, as reported by the Evening Standard.
