Liverpool managed to hang on to their European campaign right at the last moment thanks to a header from Dejan Lovren but they will have to turn their attention towards the Premier League this weekend.
They travel to Bournemouth on Sunday to face a Cherries side that has not been easy to break down all season. Though they have their weaknesses, Eddie Howe’s side have played some good football and Liverpool will have to be at their best to get all three points from this game.
On the eve of the match, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp revealed that the squad had no new injuries to worry about. Midfielder Emre Can is out for up to six weeks with the ankle injury he picked up against Dortmund while Henderson and Benteke are still out of contention. Gomez, Ings, and Rossiter are the only other causalities for Klopp.
With a crunch game against Everton looming in the mid-week, Klopp is expected to ring in the changes for this game. Here is the line-up Liverpool are expected to field against Bournemouth on Sunday:
The Belgian will keep his place as he tries to gain some confidence and finish the season on a high.
