Confirmed Liverpool lineup vs. Bournemouth: Gomez & Keita start as Klopp makes 7 changes

7 December 2019

Jurgen Klopp has again made a handful of changes with a number of young faces making a surprise appearance on the bench for Liverpool’s meeting with Bournemouth.


The Reds make the trip to the south coast on the search for their seventh successive Premier League win and their 15th of the season.

Alisson returns to the fold in between the sticks after missing out on the midweek win over Everton through suspension, with Klopp making seven changes for today’s game.

Joe Gomez also makes his return at right-back alongside Dejan Lovren, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson, where breaking the run of 13 games without a clean sheet will be a key priority.

In the middle of the park, James Milner retains his place and is joined by Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita.

In attack, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino will link up with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as Sadio Mane drops to the bench, with the Egyptian making his 100th Premier League appearance against a side he has scored against in each of his last four appearances.

Klopp has the likes of Divock Origi, Xherdan Shaqiri to call upon from the bench, as well as a number of youngsters in Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones as the Reds look to inflict the Cherries’ fifth consecutive league defeat.
