Liverpool will welcome Crystal Palace at Anfield this Monday night as both sides look to get the better of each other in the Premier League. The Reds were held to a frustrating 2-2 draw away at Fulham last weekend. In contrast, the Eagles suffered a 2-0 loss at the hands of Arsenal on the opening night of this league campaign.
Liverpool vs Crystal Palace: Talking Tactics
Jurgen Klopp will stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and is expected to instruct his men to dominate the ball and create enough clear-cut chances to win this game.
Patrick Viera will also opt for the 4-3-3 formation and could ask his players to sit deep and try to expose Liverpool’s weaknesses on the counter.
Joel Matip is a major doubt for this game due to injury. However, Kostas Tsimikas will be in a race against time to be fit for this game.
Diogo Jota, Thiago Alcantara, Ibrahima Konate and Curtis Jones will all miss this clash because of injuries.
Liverpool Predicted XI
Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Elliott, Fabinho, Henderson, Salah, Nunez, Diaz
Nathan Ferguson, James McArthur and James Tomkins are all injured and will definitely miss this away game. Michael Olise will have to pass a late fitness test if he wants to play a part in this contest at Anfield.
Crystal Palace Predicted XI
Guaita, Clyne, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell, Eze, Doucoure, Schlupp, Ayew, Mateta, Zaha
Mohamed Salah will once again be Liverpool’s main source for goals this weekend. All eyes will be on Darwin Nunez as he makes his first Premier League start at Anfield. The Uruguay international managed to score last weekend and will be a potent goal-threat up top.
Joe Gomez might get a rare start in central defence, so he has to be at the top of his game if the Reds are to secure a clean sheet this Monday night.
Jordan Ayew and Wilfried Zaha would both look to use their pace to cause a few problems for the home side out on the flanks.
Eberechi Eze will have to carry most of the creative burden for Palace in the opposition half.
