Stefan Bajcetic is set to start for Liverpool against Bournemouth.
Jurgen Klopp has picked his starting eleven and replacements for Liverpool’s Premier League match against Bournemouth this afternoon
Klopp is hopeful that his team will not back down following their spectacular 7-0 victory over Manchester United at Anfield last weekend.
The Liverpool boss has decided not to make too many changes to a team that thrashed an in-form Manchester United side.
The full-backs will be Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson, with Virgil van Dijk and Ibrahima Konate continuing their center-back partnership.
Fabinho will attempt to keep things solid in the center of the park, with Harvey Elliott likely to offer the creative spark, and Stefan Bajcetic replacing Jordan Henderson in the starting eleven.
Liverpool will stick with their strong front three of Darwin Nunez, Mohamed Salah, and Cody Gakpo.
Liverpool have Diogo Jota and Fabio Carvalho on the bench for today’s game against the Cherries.
