We take a look at tonight’s EPL clash between Liverpool and Crystal Palace. Liverpool’s start to the season was far from ideal with a 3-3 draw with Watford. They’ll be looking to start a lot stronger this week and assert their dominance early.
When: Sunday, 20 August, 12:00 am
Where: Anfield, Liverpool
Mohamed Salah’s debut was a very good one for him personally but disappointing for the team.
Liverpool looked dangerous when he was involved and scoring and assisting will be what he’ll look to deliver on a regular basis.
He will however, be expecting more from his teammates defensively.
For Crystal Palace to lose three zip at home isn’t much fun.
Yes, they played some good football but when a new manager comes in, the results are what can blind people unfortunately.
They’ll need to defend better in their area as they conceded three very soft goals.
I’m sure there’ll be a positive reaction but the team needs to respond to an average display defensively.
Liverpool will be looking to offer a more complete performance at home.
KEY BATTLE: Roberto Firmino v Christian Benteke
Firmino got on the scoresheet and he’s a very important player to Liverpool.
He should be able to get some opportunities here at home and I think he can again find himself on the scoresheet.
Benteke can be a real handful but struggling to see how Palace can impose themselves on this game.
Liverpool to win at home with a better performance defensively.
They won’t be brilliant on the eye in this one, but will be wanting to get the job done.
They should be able to pick up all three points in this one.
