Liverpool return to Premier League action on Saturday with the visit of Crystal Palace to Anfield. So, we predict, in Premier League football news, Liverpool vs Crystal Palace.
Meanwhile, the Eagles travel to Merseyside looking to build on their 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.
- Roberto Firmino, having missed the midweek 3-2 win over Milan, has yet to make an appearance for Liverpool this season.
- Sadio Mane, Thiago, and Virgil van Dijk did not play in the Champions League in midweek. But all three will almost certainly start here.
- After all, Mane has scored in all eight of his previous games against Palace.
Liverpool possible starting lineup: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Matip, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Mane
- Michael Olise and Luka Milivojevic made their first appearances this season as substitutes in last weekend’s 3-0 win over Tottenham.
- Odsonne Edouard scored twice from the bench in a memorable debut last time out. And so, will undoubtedly start right away here.
- Aside from Edouard’s full debut, no other changes are expected from last weekend.
Crystal Palace possible starting lineup: Guaita; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; McArthur, Kouyate, Gallagher; Ayew, Edouard, Zaha
Premier League Football News – Liverpool vs Crystal Palace
- AC Milan seriously challenged Liverpool in the Champions League in midweek, but the Reds still prevailed in a five-goal thriller. This season, they have won four of their first five games.
- Crystal Palace will be buoyant after their recent 3-0 victory over London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. Unfortunately, they’ve now lost eight games in a row to Liverpool.
Going forward, Palace should have a more clinical attacking edge. And Edouard, Zaha, and Conor Gallagher are all proving to be worthy sources of goals under the Vieira revolution.
As impressive as their win over Tottenham was, facing an 11-man Liverpool side could be too much for a team that has historically struggled in this fixture, and so, we expect the Reds to neutralize their opponents’ attacking forces during a straightforward victory.
