Liverpool v Bournemouth – Stats Preview

Liverpool take on AFC Bournemouth at 12.30pm on Saturday. Here are some key stats ahead of the big game…

  • Liverpool have won their last five Premier League matches against Bournemouth by an aggregate score of 17-0.
  • In all competitions, Bournemouth have won just one of their 16 matches against Liverpool (D3 L12), a 4-3 win in December 2016 at the Vitality Stadium.
  • Each of Liverpool’s last five Premier League wins against Bournemouth have been by at least three goals – the only team in top-flight history to win by 3+ goals in six consecutive games against an opponent is Man City against Wolves between 1902 and 1905.
  • The last 17 goals scored in this Premier League fixture have been scored by Liverpool – the only side Liverpool have scored more consecutive goals against without reply is West Bromwich Albion (26 between 2002-2011).
  • Bournemouth are winless in all eight Premier League games on Merseyside against Everton and Liverpool (D1 L7); the only team to play more times without winning there are Hull City (10 games).
  • Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 54 Premier League home games (W44 D10), with the Reds winning the last 21 in a row. Victory here will set a new outright record for most consecutive home wins in English top-flight history.
  • Bournemouth have lost eight of their last nine away games in the Premier League, winning the other 1-0 at Chelsea in December. Indeed, 60% of Bournemouth’s total points won on the road this season (6/10) came in their first three away games (W2 D0 L1).
  • Liverpool’s 44-game unbeaten run came to an end at Watford last time out; the Reds haven’t lost consecutive league games since September 2015 under Brendan Rodgers.
  • Liverpool have conceded as many goals in their last two Premier League games as they had in their previous 14 in the competition (5).
  • Mohamed Salah has scored in all five of his Premier League appearances against Bournemouth, netting seven goals in total. The only other player in Premier League history to score in 100% of his games against an opponent (min. 5 games) is Chris Wood against West Ham.
  • 87% of Mohamed Salah’s Premier League goals this season have been scored at home (13/15), the highest ratio of any player to have netted at least 10 this term.
