Ten important things to know about Bournemouth vs. Liverpool with the quarterfinal on the line

With a win over Bournemouth, Liverpool can advance to the League Cup quarterfinals, which would mark their best season in the competition since winning the trophy in 2022.


League Cup Fourth Round: Bournemouth vs. Liverpool | Vitality Stadium | November 1, 2023 | 7:45 p.m. (GMT)


Liverpool takes on Bournemouth for the second time this season, but this time it’s in a domestic cup competition—the League Cup’s fourth round.

If the Reds advance, the draw for the next round will happen on Wednesday following Man United vs. Newcastle.




3. Another get-together with a former Red
