Leeds boss Jesse Marsch will hope that a 2-1 victory at Anfield will make the turning point of his time in charge. A home fixture with Bournemouth is a must win given three of their next four come against teams in the top six.
At Elland Road, the Yorkshire outfit are winless in their last four Premier League matches losing their last two. Their last game here was an open 3-2 loss to Fulham and a similar game is expected here against Bournemouth.
Gary O’Neil is still interim manager of the Cherries and after a good start things are coming a little unstuck. They have lost each of their last three and won just one of four.
On the road, Bournemouth have been mixed of late with two draws and just one defeat and one victory from their last four. Each of their seven road games (in all competitions) this season have gone over 1.5 goals.
Leeds vs Bournemouth Match Stats
Leeds are a short price to win this one but despite victory at Anfield it is hard to trust them. Bournemouth have picked up a point at Newcastle and Fulham recently so will be no pushovers. A better angle of attack is taking both teams to score and over 2.5 goals as both teams look strong going forward and have issues at the back.
They did not convert them but Liverpool did create a few chances at the back against Leeds last weekend. Kieffer Moore is finding form at the moment and was a handful against Spurs last time out. Sky Bet have generously enhanced him to 10/1 to net with a header and this looks the way to go.
20 January 2015 – Leeds 1-0 Bournemouth – Championship
16 September 2014 – Bournemouth 1-3 Leeds – Championship
25 March 2014 – Bournemouth 4-1 Leeds – Championship
1 October 2013 – Leeds 2-1 Bournemouth – Championship
8 March 2008 – Leeds 2-0 Bournemouth – League One
This marks the first ever meeting between these sides in the Premier League and the first clash between the pair since January 2015. It is hard to read too much into the head-to-head record for this reason but for what it is worth the Yorkshire outfit have won four of their last five against the Cherries.
