Firmino and Salah chase the record goal against Bournemouth – Liverpool FC


Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah could set a new record for Liverpool goals against AFC Bournemouth on Saturday.

No player has ever scored goals in three successive games against the Cherries, which means that Firmino and Salah will open a new path by doing so at Vitality Stadium.

This will be the 14th meeting between clubs in all competitions, with Liverpool winning nine, drawing three and losing one of the previous matches. The Reds have scored 30 times in those games, suffering 11.

The Reds have scored the first in 12 of their 15 Premier League outings this season – winning 11 and drawing the other (v Arsenal) of those games.

The only team in the last 23 top-flight games on the net more than once in a match against Jürgen Klopp's team was West Bromwich Albion in a 2-2 draw in April.

Liverpool won last season's clash on the south coast 4-0 – their greatest victory over Bournemouth. Philippe Coutinho, Dejan Lovren, Salah and Firmino were on target.

No Reds player has scored several times against Firmino's Bournemouth. The Brazilian's three goals have put him on level with Harry Chambers.

Liverpool have not lost any of the 23 away games in all the competitions in which Firmino has equalized (20 wins, three draws).

If selected, James Milner will become the thirteenth player in the Premier League to play 500 games in the competition and the third to do so with the Reds, after Jamie Carragher (508) and Steven Gerrard (504).
