Reason For Liverpool vs Crystal Palace Predictions

  • Liverpool have a 100% winning record at home in the Premier League this season.
  • Crystal Palace are on a four-match winning streak ahead of Wednesday’s game
  • The Eagles scored against Liverpool in four of their last six meetings with them.
  • Palace have the division’s third best defensive record on the road this term.

Liverpool inching towards title

Liverpool’s 0-0 draw at Everton in Sunday’s cagey Merseyside Derby means the Reds’ wait for their inevitable Premier League title win will likely go beyond their Anfield clash with Crystal Palace this week.

With second place Manchester City expected to swat Burnley aside on Monday evening, Liverpool’s next chance to seal top spot could come at the home of the defending champions next weekend, though first the Reds must successfully come through a tricky looking tie against the Eagles.

When you combine their pre and post-hiatus results, Liverpool’s return of just two wins from seven games makes for uninspiring reading, though Jurgen Klopp’s side will expect to lean on their phenomenal Premier League home form to restraighten their path on Wednesday.

Ahead of their latest Merseyside assignment against their former manager Roy Hodgson and his in-form Palace team, the Reds hold a perfect 100% winning home record in the Premier League, with an incredible 15 wins from 15 games since August.

Crystal Palace continue to shine

Any worries about lost momentum in the Palace ranks were allayed last weekend when the Eagles swooped in for three points at the Vitality Stadium thanks to a 2-0 win at Bournemouth.

The victory was Palace’s fourth Premier League triumph on the spin – their longest top-flight winning streak since early 2017, and though their chances of adding a fifth win to that sequence look incredibly slim, the Eagles have enough in their armoury to cause Liverpool a problem or two on Wednesday.

With just three defeats in 12 on the road since early October, Palace remain one of the Premier League’s most potent counter-punchers, and while wins against Liverpool remain rare, good performances against them are common.

Palace to test Liverpool’s ambitions

Liverpool came out on top in each of their last six clashes with Palace, though none of their victories came easy.

Both teams scored in four of those six encounters, while Liverpool eked out single-goal winning margin wins in all but two of the same games, including the reverse Premier League meeting between the clubs that finished 2-1 to the Reds in November, thanks to an 85th minute winner from Roberto Firmino.

Crystal Palace, of course, scuppered Liverpool’s title chances the last time the Koppites threatened to win the Premier League, though Jurgen Klopp’s men will be doubly determined to avoid the dramatics that saw the Reds draw 3-3 in Croydon in 2014.

With the Eagles’ habit of making life tough for their more illustrious hosts well established, we think the Liverpool win and both teams combination is priced generously for Wednesday’s game, while our correct score prediction backs the hosts to claim all three points with a 2-1 triumph.

Only two clubs have conceded fewer goals than Roy Hodsgon’s side on the road this term, and Liverpool, who scored exactly twice in three of their last four clashes with Palace, should find running up a meaty final scoreline a tough task.

Key Battle – Mohamed Salah vs Patrick van Aanholt

With Salah on the bench, Liverpool’s attack on Sunday looked uncharacteristically muted at Goodison Park against Everton, though the Egyptian, who was on a scoring streak an Anfield before the postponement, is one to watch when Pool return to the red half of Merseyside.

Palace left-back Patrick van Aanholt is every bit the modern-day, forward-thinking defender, though the Dutchman might have to stick around closer to his own goal to ensure that Salah is carefully monitored this week.

Salah scored twice in this corresponding fixture last season, and will be keen to add to the four goals he plundered in his last three Premier League appearances at Anfield before the pause button was pressed on the campaign in March.

Liverpool vs Crystal Palace team news

James Milner came off against Everton on Sunday and will likely sit out Wednesday’s game, though first choice left back Andrew Robertson should be fit enough to come back in.

Joel Matip injured his ankle at Goodison and is unlikely to feature, though Joe Gomez is fresh and ready to slot back in at the back in his place.

Mohamed Salah spent the Merseyside Derby on the bench, but should be restored to the XI on Wednesday.

Liverpool predicted line-up: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Salah, Mane, Firmino

Ex-Liverpool youngster Martin Kelly is absent for Palace along with the versatile Jeffrey Schlupp and centre-half James Tomkins.

Elsewhere, Roy Hodgson has few injuries to contend with and can call on the same players who performed so well against Bourmeouth.

Crystal Palace predicted line-up: Guaita, Ward, Dann, Cahill, van Aanholt, Koyate, Milivojevic, McArthur, Zaha, Townsend, Ayew
