Liverpool will be desperate to keep the pressure on Manchester City later on today by securing all three points at the Vitality Stadium.
The Reds are set to travel to the Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth today in a match that could have a huge say on Liverpool’s title push. Worryingly, the Cherries have been one of the surprise packages in the Premier League this season, so they’ll be looking to cause an upset in front of home support.
Sadly, the Reds will be without one of their attacking stars for today’s game, as according to BBC Sport’s pre-match team news, Sadio Mane is a major doubt because of a cut foot.
Sadio Mane, who is valued at £63 million (by Transfermarkt), is a major doubt for today’s all-important clash because of a cut foot, so the Reds could turn to Xherdan Shaqiri.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are without defenders Dejan Lovren, Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez, with the latter ruled out for up to six weeks due to a lower leg fracture.
But, on a more positive note, Andy Robertson is set to return to the side.
Sadio Mane has been one of the standout performers for Liverpool this season and is a member of their potent front three, so it comes as a huge blow that he is a major doubt as the Reds could do with his attacking qualities.
But, with Andy Robertson set to return to the side later on today, at least this provides Jurgen Klopp with something to be cheerful about as Joe Gomez’s absence is another reason to be down.
