Crystal Palace vs Liverpool Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Crystal Palace jumped out of the bottom three after a 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium. James Tomkins scored from a corner after 23 minutes, while Palace made the game safe with a second-half penalty from Luka Milivojevic. Mohamed Salah inspired Liverpool to an emphatic 5-0 win over Watford at Anfield. This matches the biggest league win for Liverpool this season. Mohamed Salah scored four of those goals while Roberto Firmino came up with a sublime finish just after half-time.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Liverpool may no longer fear about trips to Selhurst Park as the Reds have picked up three consecutive wins at this ground. There have been some iconic losses, which have proved costly for the Merseyside outfit, but they seem to be beyond Jurgen Klopp’s men. Liverpool have been winning at half-time and full-time in four out of the last six league matches. Even though the Reds had to come back from a goal down in two out of the last three visits to Selhurst Park, the lengthy injury list for Crystal Palace makes it difficult for Roy Hodgson’s men to make a significant impact in the match. I would back a Liverpool win at half-time and full-time.

Despite losing four out of the last five games, Crystal Palace have a strong scoring record with goals in nine of the last 10 matches. Liverpool’s defensive record has shown a massive improvement with three clean sheets in the last four games. However, they may struggle to contain the hosts in front of their own crowd. I would choose both teams to score.

Liverpool win at half-time and full-time – 5/4

Both teams to score – 4/6

Crystal Palace Preview

The victory over Huddersfield is quite important for Roy Hodgson and Crystal Palace, as it lifts them away from the drop zone. It can also provide some much-needed confidence going into games against Brighton and Watford in the next few weeks. Roy Hodgson is struggling with a large number of injuries, but that cannot be used as an excuse to see the club go down to the Championship. Recent matches have seen Palace score a decent number of goals with the match against Spurs being the only blank for the team in the last 10 matches.

Crystal Palace Team News

Joel Ward (muscle), Scott Dann (cruciate ligament), Bakary Sako (ankle), Jason Puncheon (cruciate ligament), Connor Wickham (groin), James Tomkins, Jeffrey Schlupp (ankle), and Alexander Sorloth (hamstring) are unavailable due to injuries, while Wilfried Zaha is rated as a doubt with a knee injury.

Liverpool Preview

Liverpool announced a return to form in emphatic fashion after crashing Watford just before the international break. This mammoth victory is crucial to eliminating any doubts about the team after a draw with Porto and the loss against Manchester United. Mohamed Salah was once again the architect behind the win over Watford and his presence will be crucial in helping the club potentially overtake United. Even after the loss at Old Trafford, Liverpool remain only two points behind the Red Devils.

Liverpool Team News

Emre Can will be monitored for his fitness levels on a day-to-day basis, while Joe Gomez is out with an ankle injury.
