Brendan Rodgers has named an unchanged side for Liverpool’s Premier League visit of Bournemouth.
The Reds boss resists the temptation to hand a full debut to £29m signing Roberto Firmino as he sticks with the XI which started the 1-0 victory over Stoke City on the opening weekend.
Firmino remains on the bench alongside Danny Ings and Divock Origi, but Christian Benteke, James Milner, Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez all make their home debuts.

The newly-promoted Cherries make two changes from the team which lost 1-0 at home to Aston Villa for their first ever league visit to Anfield, both of which come in midfield.
Former Everton trainee Dan Gosling and Marc Pugh drop out to make way for Eunan O’Kane and Max Gradel – the £7m signing from Saint-Etienne who makes his full Bournemouth debut.
