Liverpool vs Bournemouth live stream, Saturday 27 August, 3pm
Liverpool will be looking to kick-start their season when Bournemouth make the long trip to Anfield this weekend.
Jurgen Klopp's side have endured a disappointing start to the 2022/23 campaign. An opening-day draw with Fulham (opens in new tab) was interpreted as an off-day at the time, but the Reds were then held to a 1-1 draw by Crystal Palace (opens in new tab) a week later.
There was not too much wrong in terms of Liverpool (opens in new tab)'s performance in that meeting with Patrick Vieira's men, but there were no positives for them to take from their 2-1 defeat by Manchester United (opens in new tab) last time out.
The Reds were second best in all departments at Old Trafford and deserved to lose to a team that went into the match under huge pressure to deliver. Injuries are certainly not helping the situation, but Liverpool need to improve quickly if they are to keep pace with the early pace-setters at the top of the division.
The fixture list has done Bournemouth (opens in new tab) no favours at the start of the campaign. Following a meeting with Aston Villa (opens in new tab) on the opening weekend, Scott Parker's side have had to face Manchester City (opens in new tab), Arsenal (opens in new tab) and now Liverpool in quick succession.
They were outclassed by both City and Arsenal, but a 2-0 triumph over Villa showed that the Cherries can be competitive this term, despite their status as the favourites for relegation.
As mentioned earlier, Liverpool have a lengthy injury list which features the names of Diogo Jota, Thiago Alcantara, Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate, Calvin Ramsay, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Naby Keita and Caoimhin Kelleher. On top of those absentees, Darwin Nunez is suspended.
Bournemouth will be unable to call upon the services of David Brooks, Joe Rothwell, Ryan Fredericks and Junior Stanislas. Jamal Lowe is available after illness, though, while Dominic Solanke will undergo a late fitness test as he strives to face his former club.
Kick-off is at 3pm BST on Saturday 27 August. See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more.

NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
