Three reasons Crystal Palace could shock Liverpool

There’s a growing feeling that 2016/17 may just be Liverpool’s year. The Reds have made a stunning start to the Premier league campaign despite a difficult set of fixtures, and it could be said that recent 2-1 victories over Swansea and West Brom showed their title credentials to a greater extent than batterings of Leicester and Arsenal.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are unbeaten since a freak slip-up at Burnley on the second weekend of the season, but there may be a few squeaky bums as Crystal Palace loom large on the horizon.

The Eagles are Liverpool’s next opponents on Saturday evening and the travelling Merseysiders head into the tie knowing that favours from West Brom and Sunderland against Manchester City and Arsenal respectively will see them end gameweek 10 as the division’s top dogs – so long as they can take three points from Alan Pardew’s men.

Although Liverpool are clear favourites for their next trip to the capital, we at FFC Towers wouldn’t be overly surprised to see a Palace win. A bold claim perhaps, but we have our reasons.
