LIVERPOOL TO FACE BOURNEMOUTH in League Cup Quarter Final
The Capital One Cup has been drawn and the team that Liverpool will be playing in the last 8 is Championship side Bournemouth FC.
Just last Tuesday, Bournemouth faced and defeated West Bromwich Albion in a fourth round shocker that saw the Premier League side knocked out of the cup by a team from a lower division (the Championship is one division lower than the Premier League).
Liverpool will have to travel to Bournemouth’s homeground, the Goldsands Stadium for their next fixture in this competition as they attempt to reach the Semi Finals.
Liverpool have been progressing steadily through the Capital One Cup, winning against Middlesbrough FC after extra time, winning 14-13 on penalties in a record breaking goal-fest that saw 31 goals in one game at Anfield. The reds also featured recently against fellow Premier League side Swansea and managed to overcome a 1 goal lead for their opposition as Balotelli and Lovren scored to help Liverpool make a comeback and win 2-1, sending us into the Quarter Final.
Here is the full draw including all fixtures to be played around the week starting on 15th December.
Liverpool had a Premier League fixture with Manchester United at Old Trafford already lined up for Sunday 14th December so are unlikely to play on the 15th but will face Bournemouth on Tuesday 16th December instead.
Before this date, Liverpool will still have the rest of their remaining Champions League fixtures to be played as they attempt to qualify from their group to the knockout stages.
So, we have some exciting fixtures to come before Christmas Day so just walk on, with hope in your heart and You’ll Never Walk Alone, Reds.

I’ve seen Liverpool win the league (about 25 years ago) and I’ve been 100% loyal and committed while supporting the Reds through all the good times AND the bad times since the 80s.
I’m a die hard Liverpool fan (only supported ONE club in my whole life, Liverpool) and one of the most dedicated fans you’ll ever meet.
