Liverpool will be hoping to build on their plucky opening-weekend win over Stoke City when newly-promoted Bournemouth visit Anfield on Monday.
A moment of magic from Philippe Coutinho deep into the second half secured the Reds a very good away win, at a ground where they were thrashed 6-1 on the final day last season.
It is vital that Liverpool continue to pick up points from their early games as they have a run of difficult away fixtures throughout September and October.

5 issues Liverpool must address before transfer window closes – sales needed, potential signing assessed
Bournemouth began Premier League life with a home defeat to Aston Villa, but will have no trouble getting back on the horse when they visit Merseyside.
An away trip of this magnitude is what the Cherries players will have been dreaming of all summer after coming up as deserving Championship winners.
It was only five years ago that the South Coast club were playing in League Two, but Eddie Howe has overseen a remarkable journey to the top flight.
Howe stuck with the majority of last season’s team for the 1-0 loss to Villa, and would have been encouraged by how many of them handled the step up.
But he still may consider a couple of changes. Max Gradel, a £6m signing from Saint-Etienne, offers more trickery and goals than Josh King, while Sylvain Distin provides huge Premier League experience.
Harry Arter, Christian Atsu and Shaun McDonald are sidelined for the visitors, while Liverpool are without injured British trio Daniel Sturridge, Joe Allen and Jon Flanagan.
Brendan Rodgers could name an unchanged side, handing home debuts to Christian Benteke, Nathaniel Clyne, James Milner and Joe Gomez, with Roberto Firmino and Danny Ings again on the bench.
Gomez was probably the pick of the new boys against Stoke, with Milner and Benteke full of effort but contributing little in an attacking sense in an uneventful game prior to Coutinho’s stunning strike.
Should Rodgers wish to alleviate the creative pressure on Coutinho, he could include Firmino from the start, as attacking support to Benteke, and leave out either Adam Lallana or Jordon Ibe.
Liverpool will have to make Anfield a fortress this term if they are to return to the Champions League. They dropped points at home in five of their 10 games against bottom-half opposition last season.
