How to watch the League Cup match between Bournemouth and Liverpool, as well as kick-off time and team news.
Bournemouth and Liverpool lock horns in an EFL Cup round of 16 showdown at the Vitality Stadium on Wednesday night.
The Cherries will head into Wednesday’s clash on a high after snapping a three match losing streak with a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over Burnley in a Premier League fixture last Saturday.
That morale-boosting win was head coach Andoni Iraola’s first Premier League victory since taking over the managerial reins at Bournemouth as they find themselves dangerously close to the relegation zone. The hosts have so far defeated Championship sides Swansea City and Stoke City in rounds two and three of the Carabao Cup, but will face a much tougher test in this one.
Liverpool have built up a head of steam since the October international break, and made it five matches unbeaten across all competitions when they comfortably cruised past Nottingham Forest 3-0 on Sunday afternoon.
Currently occupying fourth-place in the Premier League table and in pole position to progress into Europa League knockout stages following their win over Toulouse last midweek, things are looking very good for the Merseyside giants.
Victory over Championship table-toppers Leicester City saw them advance into the fourth round of the Carabao Cup, and they will take on Premier League strugglers in midweek.
