Crystal Palace vs Liverpool Match Preview, Soccer Prediction, and Betting Tips
Liverpool looks to have the depth that can finally end their more than two decades long wait for the league title, but Wilfried Zaha would be looking to dent their title hopes early on.
Roy Hodgson saved Crystal Palace from impending relegation last season, and he has been trusted to get them up the league table with a new deal, can the former Liverpool manager stop his former team from getting all three points in this game?
The Eagles started their campaign with a 2-0 win away at neighbours Fulham last weekend, Zaha scored yet again as he continues to show that he is their most important player. He has been rewarded with a new deal and he would be looking to show how grateful he is by leading them to victory here.
Liverpool have set an early marker in the race for the Premier League by beating West Ham 4-0 and topping the league table. Sadio Mane netted twice in that game with Mohamed Salah scoring the other goal. They both scored the last time these two teams met at this same venue and Mane has scored 5 times in 7 games against the Eagles.
Allison Becker had almost nothing to do in their last match, but the Brazilian would surely be tested here, he should be ready anyways.
Liverpool have won five and lost one of their last six meetings with Crystal Palace, and each of their last three trips to Selhurst Park have seen a Liverpool win and at least three goals scored. Both teams have scored in 11 of the last 12 meetings between the sides too.
