Bournemouth (5-6-14, 21 points) were just minutes away from securing a large-scale upset over league-leading Arsenal, but the latter stepped up in the crucial stages of the encounter, scoring three goals in a 35-minute span to take home the victory. It was a sorry loss for the Cherries, who were simply outclassed in terms of possession control (20%-80%) and shots (4-31) attempted, and yet they scored the first two goals of the match. Bournemouth look to bounce back from that sorry loss and avoid being buried at the bottom of the table. Philip Billing is their top offensive weapon with five goals scored in the season. Three goalkeepers have played at least 10 games for the Cherries but it is most likely that Neto will get the start.
Players to Watch: Philip Billing (5 goals, 1 assist); Kieffer Moore (4 goals); Dominic Solanke (3 goals, 4 assists); Marcus Tavernier (3 goals, 4 assists); Jefferson Lerma (3 goals); Jaidon Anthony (3 goals).
Liverpool (12-6-7, 42 points) moved to fifth place after a seven-goal trampling of Manchester United on Sunday. Cody Gakpo opened the floodgates with a superb finish to go into the break ahead, 1-0. Two minutes into the second half, Liverpool would double the score as Darwin Nuñez headed home a goal. Gakpo would make it 3-0 in the 50th minute off a Mohamed Salah assist. The Egyptian would make it a four-goal game as he connected in the 66th minute. Nuñez would get a brace nine minutes later for a 5-0 lead. Salah and Firmino scored two more goals to complete the rout. Salah is expected to lead Liverpool’s offense with the help of Firmino, Nuñez and Gakpo. Alisson is expected to start the match as the Reds’ goalkeeper.
Players to Watch: Mohamed Salah (11 goals, 8 assists); Roberto Firmino (8 goals, 4 assists); Darwin Nuñez (8 goals, 3 assists); Cody Gakpo (4 goals) Luis Diaz (3 goals, 2 assists).
