The title race was never going to be easy. Liverpool’s draw against West Ham won’t be the last time the Reds drop points this season, but City will miss opportunities too.

Anfield must get behind the team – the next time that we find form could be the run that secures the league title.

Starting with Bournemouth.



Liverpool have looked solid in the few games using a 4-4-2 this season, it’s a formation which must be used against teams outside of the top six, where Jurgen Klopp can utilise the attack.

The one change vital for this game is the return of Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back – even if it’s just for an hour. The defence hasn’t looked the same since his injury against Brighton.

Naby Keita has been a point of debate amongst Liverpool fans this week, his performance in the second half was promising against West Ham. The Guinean midfielder should play some part in this game, but I feel like Wijnaldum suits this formation better.

Fabinho keeps his place in midfield, alongside Sadio Mane and Xherdan Shaqiri who complete the four from the flanks.

Apologies to Steve Cook if he’s playing, but I’ve decided to start Salah upfront. Firmino’s performance in the last game would normally result in a place on the bench, but who can come in for him? He’s an ideal partner upfront with his ability to create, and you would hope that last game was a one-off.

Realistically, we should have enough to beat Bournemouth, but the same could have been said about the previous two fixtures. Forget those and re-focus.
