CONFIRMED: Crystal Palace and Liverpool line-ups

Here is how Crystal Palace and Liverpool will line up for this afternoon’s match:

Crystal Palace starting XI: Speroni, Kelly, Dalaney, Dann, Ward, Jedinak, Ledley, Bolasie, Puncheon, Chamakh, Gayle

Crystal Palace subs: Hennessey, Hangeland, Bannan, McArthur, Zaha, Campbell, Johnson

Liverpool starting XI: Mignolet, Manquillo, Skrtel, Lovren, Johnson, Gerrard, Allan, Lallana, Coutinho, Sterling, Lambert

Liverpool subs: Jones, Toure, Moreno, Lucas, Can, Borini, Markovic

Liverpool travel to Crystal Palace this afternoon with both sides eager to end their recent poor run of form.

The Eagles are without a win in their last five league matches, although their recent record against the Reds is impressive, and last season’s shock 3-3 draw will be fresh in everyone’s mind.

Liverpool are without a win in three league games and today’s trip to London will be anything but easy.

It is time Liverpool’s misfiring forwards do what they are paid for and pull Brendan Rodgers’ side up the table, but Palace will be quietly confident, especially with the Dwight Gayle reayd to add to his three goals against today’s opponents.
