Liverpool aren't expected to have much problem dispatching Bournemouth in Saturday's early FA Cup kickoff, with the two sides looking to progress into the fifth round. Bournemouth are currently fighting against relegation in the Championship, and will no doubt struggle against Brendan Rodgers' Premier League challengers.
The Cherries are down in 16th in the second-tier at the moment, having not won in their last four. Though form often goes out of the window in cup games, an upset at Dean Court is unlikely -- despite Eddie Howe having no early injury concerns.
In contrast, Liverpool will be without a string of regular first-teamers including Lucas Leiva, Daniel Agger, Glen Johnson and José Enrique. Manager Brendan Rodgers could make a couple of changes from his usual starting 11, with Spanish summer arrivals Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto both among the rotation players looking to play a part.
Bournemouth injuries and suspensions
Out: None. In doubt: None.
