Liverpool hopes to break the existing club goalscoring record vs Bournemouth
We all recall the goalscoring extravaganza from the last Premier League encounter between Bournemouth and Liverpool. When the Reds lock horns with The Cherries in the Premier League on Saturday, they will try to break the existing club goalscoring record.
Jurgen Klopp’s team had a rocky campaign for much of 2022–23, spending the majority of the season below the top four in the Premier League rankings.
The Merseyside giants recently lost 5-2 to Real Madrid at home in the Champions League, putting the team in danger of being eliminated at the last-16 stage.
A good Liverpool momentum against Bournemouth
More lately, Liverpool have put together a better run of play, earning 13 out of a possible 15 points in the Premier League to close the gap on fourth-place Tottenham Hotspur.
Liverpool thrashed rival Manchester United 7-0 on March 5 to prepare for the trip to the Vitality Stadium this weekend.
Although Klopp’s team now has the third-best offensive record in the division, roughly a third of their goals came from the resounding victories over the Red Devils and Bournemouth in March & August respectively.
An opportunity to make a new record
The South-coast team was thereafter handled by Scott Parker, and Liverpool impressively defeated them 9-0. This result caused the Englishman to leave two days later.
Liverpool now have the chance to shatter a long-standing club record after nearly reaching double digits against Bournemouth the previous time out. Liverpool will have scored the most goals against one opponent in a single season in their history of the Premier League if they defeat Gary O’Neil‘s team by three goals or more.
Five times in the past, Liverpool has scored 11 goals across two games in a single season, the last one was against Ipswich Town in 2001-02. Given that Bournemouth have lost their past seven league games by an aggregate score of 28. Thus, it’s all against the visitors on Saturday, and history is not on their side when they attempt to prevent Liverpool from breaking that record.
