Liverpool v Crystal Palace on Premier League Live

Liverpool v Crystal Palace on Premier League Live”

It's for this reason that I believe Philippe Coutinho will also still be a Liverpool player at the end of the transfer window.

However, midfielders Yohan Cabaye and James McArthur may be fit enough to be involved.

"We didn't score but we didn't give counter attacks away". His second goal in as many games helped Liverpool overcome manager Frank De Boer's defensive side.

Jurgen Klopp has admitted he was forced into several changes for Liverpool's game against Crystal Palace at Anfield.

The short-lived, but more than frustrating Crystal Palace curse has been lifted at Anfield. "Our natural game will be attacking and we know we have to fill that in with a real defensive spirit". I have no idea how much we had the ball but it was a lot. Crystal Palace were frustrating but unsafe.

Premier League new boys Huddersfield Town earned a 3-0 win away at Palace in the first game of the campaign, and the Eagles appeared to have had their wings clipped after improving form last term.

"There is nothing new on the injury side and if I had spoken to the owners I don't think this is the situation where I should talk about it", he said. The bid was rejected instantly by Liverpool but with the player still out of action for Liverpool, rumours continue to grow and the next two weeks will tell if Barcelona can sign the Liverpool number 10.

With Liverpool beginning the contest as if they meant business, that looked a forlorn hope. Klopp will be telling the board that he just can not afford to lose key players at a time when his squad is already lacking any kind of depth.

"The strength of this club is in the fans being supportive of the team". One of those changes worked out pretty well. They'll be looking to start a lot stronger this week and assert their dominance early.

However, this fixture will always be remembered for effectively ending Liverpool's chances of winning the Premier League in 2013/14 when the London outfit fought for a remarkable 3-3 draw.

Crystal Palace could become the first side to win four consecutive top-flight games at Anfield since Arsenal in December 1935.

Christian Benteke scored 15 goals last season in Premier League.

"We defended brilliantly and we had the ball all of the time - it felt like 85 percent possession".

If the Reds have any chance of mounting a genuine challenge for the top four (or higher), then teams like Palace need to be dispatched at home, and I'm quietly confident of a Liverpool victory. He has now had a hand in five goals against them in just six matches.
