Get an added edge on your Liverpool v AFC Bournemouth goalscorer bets for Wednesday's Capital One Cup 4th Round clash with the football betting offers at William Hill.

Liverpool drew 1-1 with Southampton on Sunday to leave new Reds boss Jurgen Klopp without a win in his first three matches at the helm. Christian Benteke's header looked to have given the hosts a victory, but they had to settle for a fifth consecutive draw when Sadio Mane bundled in an equaliser win less than 5 minutes remaining. The League Cup could be seen as the perfect distraction for ninth-placed Liverpool, who will be hoping to fashion a few more chances and make their possession advantage count in the opposition's third after seeing plenty of the ball in recent matches, without ever really looking that dangerous in front of goal.

Bournemouth made a perfect start against Spurs on Sunday before shipping 5 goals for their second consecutive Premier League match and are now without a win in regulation time over their last 5 outings in all competitions. The Cherries needed extra-time and penalties to get past Preston in the previous round of the Capital One Cup and will be hoping to improve on recent showings to give Liverpool a game, as they did when being narrowly beaten 1-0 at Anfield in August.

The match will be shown live on Sky Sports 1 from 19:45 (GMT) and is sure to appeal to casual punters and professional gamblers alike, especially with two Premier League clubs going head to head. Liverpool's home advantage sees them instlled as favourites and with little value in the Match Odds, many may favour a bet on the First Goalscorer market.

Goalscorer Second Chance

Divock Origi hasn't exactly taken his chance at staking a claim for a regular starting berth in the absence of Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings, the Belgium international has started all 3 games under Klopp without finding the net and may have to settle for a spot on the bench now that his fellow countryman Benteke is fit and firing. Benteke scored a controversial winner when these sides met earlier in the season and will be a real handful for Bournemouth on Wednesday night, with support from Brazilian Philippe Coutinho who loves a long range effort and James Milner who has scored once from midfield this season.

Glenn Murray is expected to lead the line for Bournemouth and has scored twice this season, though looked innefective against Tottenham and was soon replaced by Yann Kermorgant. Joshua King is yet to get off the mark, but should find himself with a few opportunities in attacking areas, while Matt Ritchie's opener against Tottenham was his second goal of the season and the Scottish midfielder makes for an interesting outsider bet.
