Liverpool vs. Crystal Palace: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool will look to strengthen their top four spot when they host Crystal Palace on Sunday.

Liverpool’s good form continued last time out as they edged past West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Roberto Firmino’s header on the stroke of half-time was the difference, as the Reds cemented third place.

Crystal Palace recovered from a two goal down to draw with the Premier League champions Leicester City.

Goals from Yohan Cabaye and Christian Benteke secured what could turn out to be a vital point for Palace.
