MatchLuis Diaz's Premier League half-century and 10 more pre-Bournemouth stats to know
Luis Diaz could make his 50th appearance in the Premier League when Liverpool travel to AFC Bournemouth on Sunday.
The forward, who arrived at Anfield two years ago from FC Porto, has scored 11 times in his previous 49 outings in the league for the Reds.
Diaz is also a goal away from registering his best tally in a season for Liverpool, having netted six times in all competitions so far in 2023-24 – level with his overall total in 2021-22.
Read on for more facts and figures ahead of the Vitality Stadium encounter…
Liverpool are looking for their fifth league double over Bournemouth in seven seasons.
The Reds have scored in 12 of their 13 league meetings with the Cherries and kept seven clean sheets, including six in the last nine matches.
Liverpool have scored at least twice in 12 of the last 13 encounters with Bournemouth.
Jürgen Klopp's men seek a fourth consecutive away league win for the first time since March 2022.
The Reds have lost only one of their last 15 away Premier League games.
A win at Bournemouth would see Liverpool amass 22 points for the season away from home – only one point short of the total last term.
Klopp's team are 16 points better off than they were at the same stage of last season.
Liverpool have scored in 40 of their last 41 fixtures in all competitions – only Manchester United have prevented them from scoring in that sequence.

Mohamed Salah is the only Liverpool player to have scored a league hat-trick against Bournemouth, doing so in 4-0 victory on the south coast in December 2018.
