The Reds have endured a tricky start to the season; failing to win any of their opening three games for the first time since the 2012-13 campaign under Brendan Rodgers.

Jurgen Klopp’s men began with successive draws against Fulham and Crystal Palace, before suffering an unexpected 2-1 defeat against rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Nevertheless, they will be confident of ending the drought against Bournemouth, who they have beaten in each of their last six Premier League meetings.

Liverpool have also suffered just one defeats in their 33 most recent clashes with newly promoted sides in the English top-flight.

Bournemouth’s return to the top tier began well with a hard-earned 2-0 victory over Aston Villa at the Vitality Stadium.

But Scott Parker’s side have subsequently endured a reality check; shipping seven goals without reply in commanding defeats by Manchester City and Arsenal.

Things get no easier for the Cherries, who have lost seven of their last eight away matches against Liverpool in all competitions – and 13 of their 15 most recent Premier League outings on the road.

Liverpool vs Bournemouth: Match stats

As is the case with most Premier League teams, Bournemouth is an opponent that Mohamed Salah enjoys playing against.

Liverpool’s talisman has found the net in all six of his appearances against the Cherries in the English top-flight, scoring eight times overall.

The Egypt international also has 29 goal involvements in 29 Premier League starts against newly promoted clubs for the Reds (18 goals, 11 assists).

Since his move from Roma, Salah has also been directly involved in 17 goals in his 16 English top-flight appearances in August.

Meanwhile, Adam Smith has been booked in each of the opening three Premier League matches this season for Bournemouth.

Should the referee take his name on Saturday, the defender would become only the fourth player to be yellow-carded in the first four games in a campaign.
