Although there were encouraging signals for Crystal Palace during Liverpool’s victory against Fulham on Saturday, the Eagles’ away games to open the season couldn’t get much tougher than journeys to Liverpool and Manchester City.

When the Premier League newcomers twice took the lead against last season’s runners-up at Craven Cottage, manager Jurgen Klopp believed his team lacked key attributes.

Liverpool avoided their first league loss of the year with a spirited 2-2 draw, thanks in large part to the power of Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez.

On the same level as the night before, when they lost 2-0 at home to an Arsenal team that had been much improved, Palace played. Find out how you can catch their match at Anfield below!

Naby Keita is predicted to be healthy, and Kostas Tsimikas has resumed training and could return on Friday. Injury has opened the door for the return of right defender Calvin Ramsay, 19, and offensive midfielder Kaide Gordon, 17.

The expected Liverpool starting XI (4-3-3): For the starting lineup: Alisson (GK) — Alexander-Arnold — Van Dijk — Matip — Robertson — Henderson — Fabinho — Keita — Nunez — Salah — Diaz

Defender James Tomkins, James McArthur, and Michael Olise, all midfielders, are all recovering from injuries and are a long shot to play for Palace this season.

Patrick Vieira, coach of the Eagles, may decide to make adjustments after his team wasted numerous scoring opportunities against Arsenal.

Betting lines for Liverpool vs. Crystal Palace

It’s no surprise that Liverpool is favored to win their 11th consecutive Premier League matchup, as they have dominated Crystal Palace in their previous three games at Anfield, winning by a combined score of 9-0.

The fact that Palace beat defending champion City by a score of 2-0 last season should serve as a caution to Liverpool, as should the fact that Vieira and his team finished just three points outside the top 10 that season.
