Latest team and injury news ahead of Monday Night Football…
Liverpool remain without star striker Daniel Sturridge for their first ever league meeting with Bournemouth this evening.
The England international is still recovering from the hip surgery which he was forced to undergo at the back end of last season.
Joe Allen (hamstring) and Jon Flanagan (knee) are also sidelined for the Reds, who could hand home debuts to as many as five summer signings at Anfield.
Bournemouth will have been dreaming of an away trip of this magnitude ever since securing promotion from the Championship in May.
But midfielder Harry Arter, such a key figure in their title-winning campaign last season – is still missing for the Cherries because of a hip problem.
Shaun MacDonald and Chelsea loanee Christian Atsu are also doubts as Bournemouth seek their first Premier League points after a 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa on the opening weekend of the season.
