Liverpool could go top of the Premier League when they take on Crystal Palace away from home at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.
A 2-0 away win over Sheffield United in midweek was enough to keep Jurgen Klopp’s men in second place, only two points behind leaders Arsenal.
Meanwhile, a 2-0 defeat at home to Bournemouth further sank Crystal Palace down the standings into 14th place and handed Roy Hodgson’s side a third defeat in their last four matches.
Liverpool have the upper hand ahead of the clash with three wins and two draws in their last five matches against Crystal Palace, and Jurgen Klopp’s men will look to continue this feat come lunchtime on Saturday.
Moreover, despite drawing twice in their last six league matches, the Merseyside Reds are without defeat in the period and will look to temporarily move top of the Premier League table away from home.
The hosts however will hope to turn their fortunes around with a victory in order to remain within reach of the upper half of the standings, after winning only one of their last six league matches.
Tyrell Mitchell joined Cheick Doucoure on the injury list in the Bournemouth game and will be unavailable for Saturday’s clash while Liverpool will still be without the services of Joel Matip who is suffering from an ACL injury.
The clash comes off at 12:30 pm.
