PHILIP Billing has called on Cherries to "express ourselves" against runaway leaders Liverpool, adding: "What have we got to lose?"

Cherries head to Anfield in the Premier League relegation zone following a run of one point from their past three games. They have not won on the road since December's 1-0 triumph at Chelsea, while Liverpool have won all 14 of their top-flight home matches this term.

But Billing is not writing off a shock result for Eddie Howe's men.

"Everybody probably doesn’t think we’re going to get anything out of that game," said the Dane.

"But I think if we play like we did last Saturday (2-2 draw against Chelsea), I thought we looked dangerous at times, looked like we could score at any time. And at times defended well as well, most of the game I’d say we defended well, the whole team.

"Liverpool is going to be even tougher. We’re going to have to make sure we’re at it 100 per cent and go into the game with the right attitude."

Asked how much he relishes the chance to face the top sides in the country, Billing added: "It’s always fun, it’s a challenge and you look forward to playing these games.

"Even though it’s Liverpool, you know everybody is going to doubt you and think it’s an easy win but anything can happen in football and we just have to believe in ourselves, go to Anfield and just express ourselves. What have we got to lose?

"Obviously they have been unbelievable this season. But it’s 11 v 11 at the end of the day."

Discussing whether Cherries will opt for a defensive approach against the Reds, Billing said: "I’m not the manager! Hopefully not, we’ll just go and play as AFC Bournemouth as everybody knows us, that’s attacking, energetic football and that’s what we have to bring."
