Stan Collymore predicts Liverpool clash against Bournemouth
By Amir Mir
Stan Collymore has backed Liverpool to continue their title challenge and beat Bournemouth 3-1 on Sunday afternoon.
The Merseyside club travel to the south coast hoping to continue their impressive start to the season against Eddie Howe’s side who are in the bottom half of the table.
Jurgen Klopp guided his team to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup on Tuesday night when Divock Origi and teenager Ben Woodburn saw off Championship giants Leeds.
As a result the Reds are unbeaten in 15 games in all competitions with their last defeat coming against recently-promoted Burnley in August.
Broadcaster and ex-Liverpool striker Collymore backed his former side to continue their winning ways at the weekend as he posted this message on his personal Twitter account.

The away side will be without their star midfielder, Philippe Coutinho, who injured his ankle during the 2-0 win against Sunderland last Saturday.
Coutinho is set to be sidelined for five weeks and he will miss crucial fixtures against Manchester City and local rivals Everton over the festive period.
Liverpool have picked up valuable points on the road this term. They beat Arsenal at the Emirates on the opening day of the campaign and picked up an impressive win at Stamford Bridge in September.
