Liverpool vs Crystal Palace prediction

Liverpool will be desperate to bounce back strongly after two disappointing performance against Manchester United and Atalanta. The players will be under pressure to deliver and the home fans will expect a strong reaction here.

Liverpool will hope to give Jurgen Klopp the send-off he deserves, and they will want to win the league title in his final season with the club. They are currently second in the league table on goal difference and the Reds cannot afford to drop points here. Arsenal and Manchester City are in splendid form right now and any slip-up could prove to be costly.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace are going through a rough patch and they are winless in the last five matches in the league. They will be up against a motivated Liverpool side here, and the Reds could pile further misery on them.
