Liverpool will be desperate to secure the Premier League title in the current campaign as they currently find themselves in a position to really trouble Manchester City.
The Reds have certainly come on leaps and bounds under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp in domestic competitions, but they’ll be looking to improve on the European stage in the hope that they can go one better this time round.
Klopp’s Liverpool will travel to the Vitality Stadium to face Bournemouth in their next Premier League fixture. The Cherries have been one of the surprise packages in the top-flight of English football this season, so the Reds will need to be at their best if they are to come away with anything.
Manchester City have been dominant this season and are showing no signs of letting up, so Klopp will be relying on these TWO stars to keep his Premier League title hopes alive today…
Mohamed Salah has managed to contribute on a regular basis for Liverpool this season, despite a number of supporters criticising him and labelling him as a one-season wonder.
Indeed, the Egyptian is on the verge of entering double figures for goals, with nine to his name at this moment in time, so he has already played a massive part in the Reds’ campaign so far.
Therefore, Klopp will be relying on the attacker to secure his side an important three points later on today, which would put the pressure back on Manchester City, who are set to feature against Chelsea this evening.
VIRGIL VAN DIJK
Virgil Van Dijk has come to the rescue on so many occasions for Liverpool this season, so it’s safe to say that they wouldn’t find themselves in the position they’re currently in without his efforts.
The Dutchman has been as solid as a rock, even against some of the best attackers in the Premier League, with his pace and strength making it almost impossible for the opposition to get past him.
So, with Callum Wilson set to line up at the pinnacle of the attack for Bournemouth later on today, the Reds will be hoping that Van Dijk can keep him in his pocket for the full 90 minutes.
