After a famous European night, Liverpool need to show they can carry their momentum over to the league in today's match against AFC Bournemouth. To show they aren't satisfied with just a memorable semi-final and can build on it as they head towards a Merseyside derby, a date with Rafa Benitez' new club, and the next stage of European play when they take on Villarreal. There's potential for this spell to look very rosy indeed, but for that to happen there needs to be a result against Eddie Howe's Bournemouth side today.
For Bournemouth, Joshua King did his share impressive things in a victory over Aston Villa, even if Steve Cook, Matt Ritchie, and Tommy Elphick allowed Jordan Ayew to waltz through them heading the other way. Now we get to see what they can do with Bobby Firmino sniffing around their central defense, as well as whether Lucas and Joe Allen can help ease Liverpool's midfield injury woes.
