Liverpool set to play Bournemouth in the EFL

After making their Premier League debut after ten tries, Bournemouth will try to take a big EFL Cup scalp on Wednesday when Liverpool visit the Vitality Stadium for their fourth-round match

(Football news) In their previous knockout match, the Cherries defeated Stoke City 2-0, while the Reds overcame a 3-1 deficit to defeat Leicester City, as has been the norm this season.

For Andoni Iraola, the head coach under fire, another dreadful South Coast afternoon was in store on Saturday as Burnley left-back With a ferocious volley in the eleventh minute, Jack Taylor had Ionut Radu rooted to the spot, but Antoine Semenyo’s cool finish across goal left the basement battle in suspense.

While James Trafford had done his part to keep Burnley in the match, Philip Billing’s long-range stunner preceded yet another absurd VAR incident in which the referees appeared unable to decide whether Jay Rodriguez was onside or offside as he raced through to score a late equalizer.

In the end, Burnley was caught red-handed as Bournemouth eased some of the mounting pressure on Iraola. As a result, Burnley shot up to 17th place in the Premier League, leaving Sheffield United as the only team without a maximum in the 2023–24 campaign.

Before his first Premier League victory, Iraola had already orchestrated two EFL Cup victories over Championship teams in Swansea City and Stoke City. This had advanced the Cherries to the fourth round for the second consecutive season, but eventual runners-up Newcastle United had ended their run at this point the previous year.

Before giving in to Chelsea’s dominance, Bournemouth had advanced as far as the quarterfinals in both the 2017–18 and 2018–19 seasons. This weekend, they face Manchester City, so pulling off an upset would be ideal preparation for their trip to the treble winners.
