Crystal Palace – Liverpool
Crystal Palace hosts Liverpool at the Selhurst Park in a game from the 14th round of the Premier League. Let’s preview it in these next few paragraphs.
Crystal Palace are getting ready to host the champion from 12th place in the standings. Roy Hodgson’s team have won 18 points in the league so far and they are moving well towards their main goal – survival. At this moment Palace have 5 wins, 3 draws and 5 losses in their games until now.
In their last fixture Crystal Palace made their third draw for the 2020/21 season. The Londoners had a domestic fight against West Ham United at the London Stadium. The match ended with a 1-1 draw. Christian Benteke opened the score for Palace, but West Ham equalised after a goal from Sebastien Haller in the second half.
Liverpool will be in a terrific mood after getting ahead in the Premier League standings again. On Wednesday the Reds achieved a crucial 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at the Anfield. It was a 1-1 draw until the 90th minute of the match when Roberto Firmino scored after an assist from Andrew Robertson. Before this Mohamed Salah opened the score for the champions, but Son Heung-Min equalised for the visitors.
It’s a curious fact that the manager Jurgen Klopp didn’t make even one substitution against Tottenham for the entire 90 minutes. Players like Oxlade-Chamberlain, Keita and Origi didn’t feature, but some of them might be in the line-up for Saturday.
These are our thoughts about the Premier League game between Crystal Palace and Liverpool at the Selhurst Park. The Reds are going to be thrilled after their win against Tottenham, but now they have another test in front of them – winning in London is never easy. Let’s see if Palace can make a stand here.
