Liverpool welcome Bournemouth to Anfield on Wednesday evening but could this be the cherry on top of the cake after a very good week for the Reds?

After a disastrous defeat at the hands of Leicester on Monday evening, Liverpool welcome Arsenal to Anfield on Saturday in the hope of finding a victory.
