Some fascinating picks on each side. Jurgen Klopp has ignored Jordan Henderson, with Harvey Elliott and James Milner most well-liked in midfield. Nat Phillips, who performed so many video games within the 2020-21, begins at centre-back. Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate are injured, whereas Joe Gomez is barely match sufficient for the bench. And the document signing Darwin Nunez begins up entrance.
It appears like Patrick Vieira has switched to a again 5, with Joel Ward changing Odsonne Edouard. That’s the one change from the Palace crew that misplaced to Arsenal ten days in the past.

The fixture pc could be a sick twist all proper. Crystal Palace, aiming to construct on a advantageous first season beneath Patrick Vieira, have been given the hardest begin of any crew within the Premier League: a gap sport in opposition to New Arsenal final week, then Liverpool tonight and Manchester Metropolis on the finish of August. Positive in addition they have a winnable match at house to Villa on Saturday, however can we please not dwell on that. I’m attempting to promote a story right here!
Level is, no one offers Palace a lot likelihood tonight. If you happen to’re into the entire betting factor, you may get 16/1 on a Palace victory and 6/1 on a draw. Since that they had the effrontery to win three consecutive video games at Anfield between 2015-17, Palace have misplaced ten in a row, house and away, in opposition to Liverpool.
This fixture seemed formidable even earlier than Liverpool began the season with a sloppy, sluggish 2-2 draw at Fulham. A efficiency like that has penalties. The Liverpool gamers have had 9 days of listening to the individuals who doubt their dedication to a different season of heavy-metal soccer. The backlash begins at 8pm.
