We will providing rolling coverage throughout Saturday in the build-up to the match as well as live coverage of the game and all the post-match reports.

You can also send us pictures of you watching the game by tweeting @bournemouthecho or emailing us a snap of what you are doing on Saturday.

Kick off 12.45pm.

Goldsands Stadium

TICKETS

A spokesperson for the club said all available tickets for the game have now been issued.

“180 tickets, which had been unclaimed by season ticket holders, went on sale this morning (Friday) over the phone and online, selling out within 15 minutes.

“No further tickets will be issued to home supporters.

“Tickets for visiting supporters will only be available from Liverpool Football Club. If you purchase tickets for this fixture and the club have reason to believe you are an away supporter, your tickets will be retained until this is verified.”

MATCH DAY

To help those going to the game on Saturday here are some tips:

  • Arrive early at Goldsands Stadium.
  • Those without tickets should not go to the ground. All available tickets have been issued for the game.
  • The gates will open at 11.15am, leaving plenty of time for supporters to get into the ground and minimise queues at the turnstiles.
  • AFCB are urging people to make sure they sit in their allocated seat.
  • The area behind the South Stand has been allocated for away supporters so home fans will need to enter the ground at a different gate.

More information is available on AFC Bournemouth’s official website.

PARKING

The club are urging people arriving by car to be considerate to local residents and adhere to “obvious” parking restrictions.

They say: “Kings Park Drive has been recently yellow-lined and the council will enforce this restriction this Saturday, as it did last week.

“The south car park will have less spaces than usual due to TV crew and away supporter coach parking and is expected to be full by two hours prior to the game.”

Alternative parking includes the Sovereign Centre car park on Christchurch Road, 10mins walk from the ground.

Parking fees are £2 or £2.50 dependent on how long you stay.

The club has also secured the use of Harewood College and Avonbourne School car parks with access from Harewood Avenue.

This is open from 11am to 3.30pm and stewards will collect the parking fee of £2 per space.

People are being encouraged to car share or use public transport or get dropped off closer to the ground.

For heavens sake the crowd will only be a few hundred more than recent home games and most of those extra ones will be Liverpool supporters who are arriving by coach or train. The vast majority of those attending will be regular supporters who know where to park etc. Get a grip will you.

My prediction..

Bournemouth-1 Liverpool-3

Without the Liverpool players breaking too much of a sweat. In fact, they will probably find the coach journey home more demanding.

This game is bringing back so many memories, back in 67 ( I was 9) I had a ticket for the game (Brighton Beach End) got my ticket at the preceding game against Bury and had never seen a "big" team before, then a school-mate couldn't get one and his mother died a week before the game, so I gave him my ticket and in those days there was no live TV. Oh well, at least I WAS there against ManU, and at Old Trafford the following year. Now living in the US, and I am so very glad that it is live on TV here, although 7:30am is a bit early for me nowadays, but I have many friends and neighbours coming around to see the game, just hoping not to repeat the scoreline for the only other time my beloved Boscombe was on USA TV,, a few months back against Madrid,
Come on you little reds!!! Hope you all enjoy tomorrow, just think just a very short while ago it was Blyth...

By half time maybe.

5-2 or 5-1 seems more likely
