Liverpool - Premier League - 8 December 2018

Pep Guardiola could be without the injured Sergio Aguero next week

Pep Guardiola could be without the injured Sergio Aguero next week

The Liverpool manager defended Sturridge after Dyche, his Burnley counterpart, had claimed the striker dived during the match at Turf Moor on Wednesday.

Elsewhere, Klopp has made five changes for the fixture with the Cherries, including recalls for Fabinho, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, while Andy Robertson is back after a knock.

Jurgen Klopp's side went into the game just two points behind Manchester City, with City travelling to Chelsea on Saturday evening.

After a relatively slow start to the campaign, Salah is now scoring at a similar rate to last season.

With Joe Gomez ruled out for six weeks with a broken leg and Trent Alexander-Arnold on the bench, Klopp has gone for experience for the key game at the Vitality Stadium.

The Egypt global was fortunate to open the scoring in the 25th minute when he pounced on a mistake from Asmir Begovic, who could only parry Roberto Firmino's speculative effort, but replays showed he was standing in an offside position. Having that game was very, very important and then the second half showed everything is fine.

After Firmino won the ball back, Salah ran at the Bournemouth defence and finished into the bottom corner.

But before his finish, defender Steve Cook nastily caught Salah on the Achilles.

"I watched Liverpool as a kid and was a Liverpool fan growing up and they had a fantastic side of skill, will, demand and a physical edge".

But Salah and co. will be concentrating on their massive Champions League tie against Napoli on Tuesday where they need to win either 1-0 - or by two clear goals - to progress to the last-16.
