Liverpool will be hoping to reach their 15th semi-final in the League Cup by knocking out Championship side Bourneomouth on Wednesday evening at the Goldsands Stadium – 7.45pm kick off UK time - in the Capital One Cup quarter-final tie.

The two sides met at the 4th round stage of the FA Cup last season with the Reds securing a 2-0 win thanks to goals from the then on loan Moses and Sturridge.

This is the first meeting between the two sides in this competition with all of the previous five encounters coming in the FA Cup. The first meeting came in January 1927 at the 3rd round stage at Dean Court with the tie going to a replay after the match ended 1-1. Liverpool won the replay 4-1 with Harry Chambers stealing the show with a hat-trick. 41 years passed before Liverpool and Bournemouth met again but there would be a similar outcome when they were paired together in 1968, again at the 3rd round stage of the FA Cup with Bournemouth having home advantage. That match ended 0-0 and Liverpool once again won the replay at Anfield 4-1. A further 46 years passed prior to last season’s meeting in the FA Cup and if Bournemouth continue their current form in the Championship – the Cherries are joint top after 21 games and are unbeaten in their last 11 league games, winning eight and drawing three – encounters between the two sides could become a more regular occurrence.

Bournemouth entered this competition at the 1st round stage and have knocked out Exeter City away (2-0), Northampton Town (3-0) at home in the 2nd round, Cardiff City (3-0) away at the 3rd round and Premier League side West Bromwich Albion (2-1) at home in the last round. Liverpool overcame Middlesbrough in round three on penalties and knocked out Swansea 2-1 at Anfield to set up this meeting with Eddie Howe’s table toppers. Liverpool hold multiple records in this competition including most tournament wins (8), most final appearances (11), joint highest win (10-0 against Fulham in September 1986, shared with West Ham who hammered Bury by the same scoreline three years earlier), while Ian Rush holds records for the most tournament wins as a player (5 all with Liverpool), joint most final appearances as a player (6, shared with Emile Heskey who made three final appearances with Leicester, two with Liverpool and one with Aston Villa) and joint highest goalscorer (49 goals shared with Geoff Hurst).
