Liverpool visit Crystal Palace at the Selhurst Park in a first game from the 13 round
Looking to make another step towards their first Premier League title, Liverpool visit Crystal Palace at the Selhurst Park in a first game from the 13 round of the league. In our English Premier League predictions we will discuss this fixture in the capital with you.
Liverpool are looking so strong since the beginning of the season that it looks like the league is already over. But of course it’s not, because despite of having 8 points advantage in front of Leicester City, the Reds are still not champions.
But they are in a pole position to do it. In 12 games played so far, Jurgen Klopp have won 11 of them, doing one draw as well. They are the only unbeaten team in the league right now.
Just before the international break Liverpool successfully made another claim for the title. The Reds hosted the current champion Manchester City at the Anfield and put their opponent to its knees. Fabinho, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane gave the Reds a solid three goal advantage, while Bernardo Silva’s goal for City didn’t change anything.
Joel Matip is still unavaliable for Liverpool, while Jurgen Klopp’s biggest problem is the injury of Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian striker could his miss the game on Saturday.
Crystal Palace on the other hand would be happy to return in Top 10 of the league. At this moment they are 12th in the table with 15 points, but just two points behind the 5th Sheffield United. This could tell you how close to each other are the teams between 5th and 13th place in the Premier League.
Crystal Palace’s manager Roy Hodgon can’t use Connor Wickham and Mamadou Sakho for the next game, because these two players are injured.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the fixture between Crystal Palace and Liverpool on Saturday. Will the Reds make another step towards the title? Maybe yes.
