This is the 14th meeting of clubs in all competitions. Liverpool wins nine, draws three and loses one of the previous encounters. The Reds have scored 30 goals in these games and conceded 11 goals.

The Reds scored their first goal in 12 of their 15 Premier League matches this season, winning 11 of them and drawing the other (against Arsenal) in those games.

The only team in the last 23 league games to have scored more than one goal in a match against Jürgen Klopp was West Bromwich Albion, who drew 2-2 in April.

Liverpool won the duel of last season on the south coast with 4: 0 – Their biggest win against Bournemouth so far. Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovren, Salah and Firmino were at the finish.

No red player has scored more goals against Bournemouth than Firmino. The Brazilian's three goals set him level with Harry Chambers.

Liverpool have lost none of the 23 away games in all competitions in which Firmino has made a profit (20 wins, three draws).

If selected, James Milner will be the 13th player in the Premier League era to contest 500 games in the competition, and the third to do so with the Reds, after Jamie Carragher (508) and Steven Gerrard (504).
