Liverpool will be looking to cement their position in the top four when they face Crystal Palace in the Premier League at Anfield on Sunday.

The Reds are third in the Premier League, two points above Manchester City having played a game more. Liverpool are on a seven game unbeaten run at the moment, and are heading into this match on the back of two straight wins against Stoke City and West Brom.

Earlier in the season, Liverpool were failing to win those types of games, but it seems Jurgen Klopp has found a way to grind out results.

BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson believes that Christian Benteke could be the danger man for Liverpool, and the Reds need to cut off his supply line.

"The Reds were all over the place for the first 45 minutes against Stoke but still found a way to win that game and, in all honesty, they could have scored two or three against the Baggies," said Lawrenson to BBC Sport

"Philippe Coutinho is playing extremely well and when that happens, so does Roberto Firmino.

"It means that, even without Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson, Liverpool look dangerous.

"I know Crystal Palace have been going well, and it will be interesting to see how Christian Benteke gets on back at Anfield, But if Liverpool can cut off Benteke's supply, I would expect them to win this one."

The Reds are missing several key players, with the likes of Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson missing through injuries. However, Lawrenson believes they have enough firepower in their ranks to see off the challenge from Palace.

Palace have won their last two visits to Anfield and Sam Allardyce will be looking to make it three in a row. The Eagles are on a great run here, having lost just once, and won five in their last seven games.

Lawrenson predicts a 2-0 victory for Liverpool, but former Tottenham midfielder, Jermaine Jenas, predicts a 2-1 win for Palace.
