The Premier League continues this weekend, and these two teams are looking to continue their form after big wins last weekend. For today’s betting tip, we’ll be focusing on the clash between Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and Patrick Viera’s Crystal Palace at Anfield.
Liverpool is looking to remain unbeaten when they welcome Crystal Palace to Anfield this weekend. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool defeated Leeds 3-0 at Elland Road last weekend, after drawing with Chelsea before the international break. The Red’s title challenge seems to be on, but they will face a Crystal Palace side who just registered their first victory.
In the victory at Leeds, Liverpool lost Harvey Elliott to a gruesome injury, and he will be out for the foreseeable future. The youngster had made a good start to the season, and he will be a huge miss for Jurgen Klopp. Roberto Firmino and Takumi Minamino are also questionable after suffering injuries before and during the international break.
Crystal Palace is coming off their most impressive performance of the campaign. The ‘Eagles’ were huge underdogs against then table-topping Tottenham but ran out with a 3-0 victory last weekend. After their win, Palace leaped to 11th in the table and Patrick Viera has his side performing well and with confidence.
New signing Odsonne Eduoard scored a brace from the bench last weekend, and he is likely to start over Christian Benteke when Palace travels to Merseyside. However, Palace will remain without Ebereche Eze and Jeffrey Schlupp who are side-lined.
Liverpool is usually victorious when they play Crystal Palace. ‘The Reds’ have won the last five and have scored plenty of goals in the process – including a 7-0 victory last season at Selhurst Park. In these five games, Liverpool has scored 19 times, but they are facing a very different Crystal Palace defense.
Even with the addition of Marc Guehi and Joachim Andersen, Palace’s defense may struggle when they travel to Anfield. Palace is 18 games without a clean sheet against Liverpool and they often concede to Sadio Mane. The Senegalese frontman has scored in each of his last seven appearances against the London side.
Crystal Palace would need to be at their very best to leave Anfield with a result. Jurgen Klopp has made Anfield a fortress, and teams will always struggle when they come to Merseyside. With Mane’s unbelievable scoring streak alongside Liverpool’s free-flowing attack – expect goals
Therefore, we’re predicting a Liverpool Win, Over 2.5 goals in the game, and Sadio Mane to score with 888Sport at 7/5.
