THE LAST TIME WE MET
DEC 17th 2014 – LEAGUE CUP – QF
AFC BOURNEMOUTH 1 LIVERPOOL 3
AFC Bournemouth and Liverpool have never met in the League. AFC Bournemouth have never beaten Liverpool. Two facts that are about to change in 2015/16, well at least one of them.
The last time the Cherries took on the might of Liverpool is still fresh in the memory. It was only at the end of 2014 that the League Cup paired AFC Bournemouth at home to Liverpool. The Premier League boys were going through a lean patch and it seemed a good time to be playing them. However, their class shone through as they cruised through to the semi-finals with Raheem Sterling outstanding.
The previous season, but the same year, saw the Cherries grab the Premier League big boys for the first time in 45 years. Once again the Reds quality shone through with goals from Moses and Sturrigde sending the Reds through to the next round.
Before 2014 the last time the Cherries met Liverpool was way back in 1968, long before most supporters were even born or set eyes on the hallowed turf of Dean Court. The Cherries managed to take thier third round FA Cup tie to a replay where they managed to get soundly beaten 4-1.
