Premier League preview and odds: Liverpool vs. Crystal Palace

November 8, 2015 16:00pm - Anfield

Premier League

After a successful trip to Russia in midweek, it’s back to Anfield for Liverpool as they host Londoners Crystal Palace in the Barclays Premier League.

Klopp on top after three straight wins

After three draws followed by three straight wins in all competitions, Jurgen Klopp can claim to have had a decent start to his Liverpool career. This weekend his team can continue pushing towards the European places with a win over their visitors from the South of England.

Having already leapfrogged Crystal Palace in the league last week, the Reds can now try to close the gap on any faltering teams above them this weekend. Despite sacking Brendan Rodgers and enduring a period of transition under their new boss, the Merseyside team are just four points off Manchester United in fourth place and have only been beaten twice all season. Only Leicester City and Spur have lost fewer games than Klopp’s men.

In their last match, Liverpool came from a goal down to beat Chelsea away from home thanks to a brace from Philippe Coutinho in either half, and decisive third from Christian Benteke.

Palace starting to slide after winless run

Crystal Palace have spent much of the season in the upper reaches of the league but a run of three games without a win has left them stranded in the 10th place. Three defeats in the last six games has contributed to their downfall and they must now attempt to halt the slide by taking points away from Anfield.

Palace have won three games on the road this season including tricky trips to Watford and Chelsea. In their last game, they had to settle for a point at home to Manchester United when either side was unable to find the net.

Team news

Liverpool still have a packed treatment room with Jordan Rossiter, Daniel Sturridge, Kolo Toure, Jordan Henderson, Jon Flanagan, Joe Gomez and Danny Ings all under the Doctor`s eye.

Meanwhile Alan Pardew will have to make do without Pape Souare, Connor Wickham, Marouane Chamakh and Kwesi Appiah who are all out injured.
