Arsenal fan and football expert, Arka Tarun Mukherjee actually used to play cricket at semi pro level. An ardent student of football tactics, ATM is very passionate about the tactical aspects of the game and has a dream of being a football manager in the future.

After an exciting start to the season where it is looking like the Reds are fully getting into the groove, they have a real test this weekend against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, a venue that has not been a happy place to visit for the Merseyside team in the recent seasons.

At the moment Liverpool do look like a team capable of challenging for silverware on all fronts, but these are exactly the kind of games they need to watch out for. Crystal Palace have been very inconsistent this season, turning it on one week while switching off in the other. Their last two home games have ended in a defeat and they would be desperate to break the streak against a team they have fared well at home in the past.

Let’s take a look at the key battles which will decide the game.

Christian Benteke Vs Joel Matip

The Belgian striker has a point to prove after being discarded by Liverpool in the summer after just one season at Anfield, and will be relishing his first skirmish with his former employers.

Benteke has been the top scorer for his side and he will go against Joel Matip, a player who has put in consistently classy performances since arriving from Schalke.

Matip is a powerful defender good in the air so it would be a fantastic aerial battle between the two.
