Confirmed: Liverpool and Crystal Palace line-ups

Liverpool Anfield Road Paisley Gateway 2

Here is how Liverpool and Crystal Palace will line up this weekend:

Liverpool welcome Crystal Palace to Anfield this afternoon with Reds manager Jurgen Klopp looking to pull his side further up the Premier League table following their 3-1 victory against Chelsea last time out.

That was an impressive win for Liverpool but they will know Crystal Palace are a tough opponent under Alan Pardew and they will have to be at their best to overcome the Eagles.

Liverpool are currently ninth in the Premier League with 17 points from their first 11 matches, while Palace are just one place and one point below them.

As a result this match should be a tight encounter and Palace will have taken plenty of confidence from their 0-0 draw – and fine showing – against Manchester United last weekend.

Palace won at Anfield back in May and that result will be fresh in every player’s mind this afternoon, and when you consider just how many goals the Eagles have scored against Liverpool in recent times this could be a very eventful match.
