We take a look ahead to Saturday's Premier League fixture between Bournemouth and Liverpool live from Dean Court.

TEAM NEWS: 

Bournemouth: Dan Gosling remains absent with a knee injury. 

Liverpool: Defender Joe Gomez has been ruled out for up to six weeks after sustaining a lower leg fracture in the midweek victory over Burnley.

Sadio Mane will be assessed after missing that match with a cut foot, he's expected to miss out. 

WHO IS SAYING WHAT?

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe on Liverpool: 

"The game on Tuesday was a big win for us. We won without playing well, something we've rarely done in the Premier League. I anticipate we'll play better tomorrow.

"We have to be excellent to get something - Liverpool won't take us lightly though. They're unbeaten and we anticipate a full-strength team against us."

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on facing Eddie Howe: 

“They play a fantastic season [and] it’s just an outstanding job what Eddie [Howe] is doing there, so it will be difficult enough. But of course I know every player knows about it so I don’t have to mention it, it’s clear.

“But it’s a tough one. Bournemouth is really in a good moment, even if they’ve lost a few games. I know that, but who saw the games saw it was always really, really hard work for the opponent because they are so good organised and so good in counter-attacks [and] full of confidence. 

Form: 

Did you know?

'The Cherries' are two short of scoring 100 Premier League goals at Dean Court. 

Liverpool are aiming for a fifth consecutive win in the Premier League.

James Milner could make his 500th Premier League appearance in this match, becoming the 13th player to reach that landmark.

Possible lineups: 

Bournemouth:
Begovic; Francis, S Cook, Ake, Daniels; Brooks, Surman, Lerma, Fraser; King, Wilson

Liverpool:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Moreno; Fabinho, Keita; Shaqiri, Firmino, Lallana; Sturridge
