Liverpool vs. Crystal Palace: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool can go top of the Premier League when they host Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.

Liverpool eased past Leeds United last time out, however the win was overshadowed by the injury sustained to Harvey Elliott.

Jordan Henderson scored a second half winner as Liverpool recovered to win their opening Champions League fixture, beating AC Milan 3-2 at Anfield.

Crystal Palace recorded their first win of the Patrick Vieira era, thrashing Tottenham 3-0.

Wilfred Zaha opened the scoring from the spot, with debutant Odsonne Edouard scoring twice late on.

Match history
Liverpool have a superb record against Palace, winning the last nine meetings between the two.

Sadio Mane scored twice in the fixture last term, with the win on the final day securing third spot for Liverpool.

Team news
Roberto Firmino likely remains out for the hosts, meaning Diogo Jota will continue in the front three.

It wouldn’t be a shock if Andrew Robertson is rotated, whilst Virgil van Dijk and Mane will return to the side after midweek breathers.

Edouard’s impressive debut could earn him a start ahead of the former Liverpool man Christian Benteke.

The remainder of the XI will likely be the side that eased past Tottenham last weekend.

Expected starting XI’s
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Gomez, Tsimakis; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Mane

Crystal Palace (4-3-3): Guaita; Ward, Anderson, Guehi, Mitchell; Gallagher, Kouyate, McArthur; Zaha, Edouard, Ayew


Result: Liverpool
Going for 10 wins in a row against Palace, hard to back against a home victory

Correct Score: 2-0
Liverpool won 2-0 back in May and a similar scoreline is expected here

Anytime Goalscorer: Mohamed Salah
Salah now has 100 Premier League goals and he has six in nine vs. Palace
