Liverpool, the leaders of the Premier League table, are hoping to return to the winning streak when it hosts Bournemouth in the second half of the Saturday afternoon, after it suffered its first championship defeat by Watford 3/3 in the last stage.
Liverpool leads the competition standings, 22 points behind its nearest stalkers, and it remained unbeaten in 44 consecutive games in the competition, before losing to Watford.
Juergen Klopp’s team went out of the Federation Cup, after a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea, but the German coach appears determined that these results will not affect his team’s focus in winning the League Championship, for the first time in 30 years.
Klopp said: “We went on our way for a long time, because we defended wonderfully.”
He continued: “I am not worried about what is happening, no one should feel sorry for us, we will win matches again and this is what we want to do on Saturday.”
Bournemouth appears as an easy catch for Mohamed Salah, as he managed to face the team 5 times and scored all of them with a total of 7 goals, and if he managed to reach the team’s nets today, he would become the first player in the history of the tournament to score against his opponent in the first 6 consecutive encounters.
