Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has offered his predicted score ahead of Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool head in to the game off the back of Thursday nights incredible comeback win over Borussia Dortmund in the quarter finals of the Europa League with the Reds coming from 3-1 down to win 4-3 thanks to a dramatic stoppage time winner from Dejan Lovren.

Domestically things haven’t been so positive for Liverpool as they currently sit eighth in the Premier League table and nine points behind fourth-placed Manchester City so Jurgen Klopp would be forgiven for focussing his attention on their Europa League semi-final with Villarreal.

Despite this, the Liverpool squad should be high on confidence right now and Merson is tipping the Merseysiders to edge past a Bournemouth side that have little left to play for this season after securing their top flight status for another year.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Merson said:

After Liverpool’s incredible win over Borussia Dortmund on Thursday night they have to concentrate on the Europa League. Liverpool’s top-four ambitions are pretty slim when you look at the table. They can still do it but victory over Dortmund put them two games away from a final and potentially three away from a place in next season’s Champions League.

They could win their next seven league games and still not make the top four. Bournemouth just did enough against Villa and were nothing special, so I still have to back Liverpool for a win.

PAUL PREDICTS: 1-2

We’ll have to wait and see whether Merson’s prediction proves accurate but a 2-1 win would at least give Liverpool’s hopes of forcing their way in to the top four a major boost and Klopp will be keeping a close eye on Man City’s clash at Chelsea later today. If they slip up, then Liverpool need to be ready to take advantage.
