History tells us this will be a fascinating game. Liverpool hold a woeful recent record against Crystal Palace, but they have seldom been as strong, complete and threatening as they are at this moment in time.
Jurgen Klopp’s team look set to mount a genuine title challenge. With the quality they have this should be Liverpool’s game. Palace’s excitable home crowd will make a ground-shaking Saturday evening atmosphere in the capital, which will make this quite the occasion.
Christian Benteke could be the story. Against Liverpool’s improved, yet jittery, defence the dominating Belgian will be a threat. A supercharged performance can be expected against the club that signed and rejected him within a year.
Alan Pardew’s side come into this game having not won in three and lost their last two. Form is not on their side and the fearsome Liverpool team that Jurgen Klopp has named could well be too much for the Eagles…
