Mark Lawrenson is tipping Liverpool FC to continue their recent fine form by claiming a 2-0 win over Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday night.

The Reds head into the game looking to build on their brilliant 2-1 win over Manchester City in midweek as they sealed their place in the Champions League semi-finals.

Goals from Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino wrapped up a brilliant 5-1 aggregate win for the Reds and secured their place in the last four of Europe’s elite club competition.

Liverpool FC have been earning plenty of praise for their strong performances in recent weeks, and Jurgen Klopp’s men are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they chase Champions League qualification for next season.

And former Reds star Lawrenson is fully expecting to see Liverpool FC claim the three points when they host Eddie Howe’s men at Anfield this weekend.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: “Liverpool are just on top form.

“As everyone knows, they had a little bit of luck to get past Manchester City in the Champions League, but they are entitled to that good fortune and I think they make it for themselves most of the time.

“I am not expecting them to have too many problems against Bournemouth. The Cherries will come to Anfield and play an open game and I think that will suit Liverpool.

“Eddie Howe’s side are the comeback kings, but I don’t see that happening again if they fall behind this weekend.”

Klopp is aiming to steer Liverpool FC back into the top four for the second season running.

The Reds, who have not yet won a trophy under Klopp, ended up in fourth place last season in what was the German manager’s first full campaign in charge at Anfield.
