Brendan Rodgers is taking no chances in Liverpool's FA Cup fourth round match with Bournemouth after naming a strong starting XI.

Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez both start against the Cherries on the south coast, while Steven Gerrard, Philippe Coutinho and Jordan Henderson make up a star-studded midfield.

Rodgers has made three changes from the side that drew to Aston Villa at Anfield.

Eunan O'Kane, a former Everton youngster, is named in the home side's starting line-up by manager Eddie Howe. Striker Brett Pitman is on the bench.

AFC Bournemouth: Camp, Francis, Ward, Elphick, Daniels, Arter, O'Kane, Surman, Ritchie, Grabban, Pugh

Subs: Allsop, Cook, Harte, MacDonald, Fraser, Pitman, Rantie

Liverpool: Jones, Kelly, Toure, Skrtel, Cissokho, Gerrard, Henderson, Coutinho, Moses, Sturridge, Suarez

Subs: Mignolet, Alberto, Aspas, Sterling, Ibe, Flanagan, Sama
