The Premier League season 2022-23 has reached a point where the point table has become vulnerable and things are expected to change in the coming days. As this week ends, Liverpool will be travelling to Selhurst Park Stadium to face Crystal Palace in a Premier League fixture.
Nothing has changed in the performance of Crystal Palace from the last season of the Premier League. They are currently at the 12th spot in the point table with 26 points and only 6 wins.
Liverpool witnessed a disappointing end to the first leg of their Champions League fixture against Real Madrid in the last game as the Reds lost the fixture by 2-5. As a reason, the odds are not much in their favour by the online bookies.
The Eagles are coming to play their next Premier League fixture after two consecutive draws against Brighton and Brentford. The Club has not witnessed a win in the past eight fixtures and things are getting difficult for Patrick Vieira and his boys.
Palace has a weak defence which is turning out to be a nightmare for the whole team. The attackers are not in the right form to convert opportunities into goals.
Joel Ward and Wilfried Zaha are in the injury room and won’t be part of the game.
Predicted Lineup: Guaita, Clyne, Tomkins, Guehi, Mitchell, Hughes, Doucoure, Schlupp, Olise, Mateta, Ayew
With two consecutive wins, things started to pick up for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool. However, the game against Real Madrid has highlighted the weakness of the Reds and the club is back to losing games. Liverpool is currently in the eighth spot and they are nowhere near the top 5 spots.
The Champions League loss will be difficult to sulk in and the impact of which will be visible against Crystal Palace.
Nunez is still doubtful to travel with the team to face Crystal Palace because of his shoulder injury.
Predicted Lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Bajcetic, Fabinho, Henderson; Salah, Gakpo, Jota
Liverpool was not in the right rhythm against Real Madrid as they were outclassed by the European champions.
However, their squad is too strong for minnow Palace and they will beat them 3-1.
