In the second half, the Reds continued to dominate but could not find the goal that would end the game, it was not until Salah and Keita scored in the dying moments of the match to seal Liverpool's victory over Crystal Palace.

9:36 AMa month ago

The comeback against Milan!

In midweek, Anfield hosted one of the most important duels of the UEFA Champions League group stage between Liverpool and Italy's Milan. In a duel of many emotions and too many adrenaline sparks, the team that never walks alone ended up winning by a score of 3-2 after coming from behind to get the first three points of the tournament.
9:26 AMa month ago

They are already on the field!

The Crystal Palace team is already at Anfield to face its fifth match of the championship against Liverpool.

9:23 AMa month ago

Liverpool fun fact

Liverpool have taken more shots than any other team in the Premier League this season (100). Their 30 attempts against Leeds last time out took them to 100, only the second team to do so since 2003-04 with 100+ shots in their first four games of the season, after Chelsea 2009-10 (109).
9:19 AMa month ago

How is Crystal Palace doing?

After scoring two goals on his debut against Tottenham, Odsonne Edouard has certainly earned himself a starting berth for the visit to Anfield. That would see Christian Benteke stay on the bench, although the striker did not do badly before making way for Celtic's new signing.

Jordan Ayew's place is also not guaranteed. The winger has started four of the five games Vieira has managed, but has yet to score or assist. He played 87 minutes on Saturday before being replaced by Olise, who in his brief appearance helped create an opening for one of Edouard's goals.

9:12 AMa month ago

How is the Liverpool squad?

Harvey Elliott is still recovering from the horrific injury he suffered in the win over Leeds and Roberto Firmino is yet to fully recover from a hamstring discomfort.
Belgian striker Divock Origi started for the first time in ten months against AC Milan, but was substituted on the hour mark after being left on the ground clutching his leg.

Other than that, Klopp has a full squad to call upon. Sadio Mané is likely to start, so Diogo Jota would move into the center forward role. Thiago Alcantara could also replace the more defensive-minded Naby Keïta, who started on Wednesday.

9:08 AMa month ago

Will Liverpool prevail?

Unbeaten after 4 games played, the only blemish on Liverpool's record is the 1-1 draw against Chelsea, with 10 men, 2 weeks ago. They have always had a bad run against Crystal Palace since losing the title in a 3-3 draw 5 years ago against the Eagles.
But Klopp seems to have overcome the mental block as he has led Liverpool to 9 straight wins against their next visitors, with 3 clean sheets. They are also on a 7 game unbeaten run, having scored first in 6 of them.
Crystal Palace have gone 18 games without a clean sheet against the Reds. The arrival of Patrick Vieira has brought a glimmer of hope, and it showed in the win over Spurs last weekend.
But what hasn't changed at Selhurst Park are the defensive problems, which have seen Crystal Palace concede more than 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 8 games. 4 of the last 5 meetings with Liverpool have also involved more than 2.5 goals for Vieira's men.

The wait is over

No more waiting! Matchday 5 of the Premier League has finally arrived, Liverpool is playing for more than just three points, because with a victory they could become the sole leader of the league in case Chelsea and Manchester United fail in their respective matches. Likewise, the Reds have the advantage in their favor historically, since in the last eight matches against Crystal Palace, the Anfield team has come out with the victory.

Key Player Crystal Palace

From Ivory Coast to the world, Wilfried Zaha will be the player to watch for this match. From 2017 onwards, the African has played 19,345 minutes with the Eagles' jersey, in which he has become a real reference in attack with 48 goals in his personal account, he has also appeared 235 times in the starting lineup and has assisted on 41 occasions. Also, on 39 occasions he has received the yellow card and only once he was sent off with a straight red card, Zaha could be the unbalancing factor that puts the balance in favor of Crystal Palace.

1:07 PMa month ago

Key Player Liverpool

Since his arrival in 2017 to the Reds, the pharaoh Mohamed Salah has become an idol of his own and strangers for his great determination in the box, technique in touching the ball and being a true leader on the field. With Liverpool he has played 12,511 minutes in which he has started 149 times, scored 98 times and assisted 38 times, he has also only received three yellow cards in his entire stay in the team that never walks alone. Likewise, despite being a right winger, he has also played as a striker when required, so Salah could be the unbalancing factor that puts the balance in Liverpool's favor.

1:02 PMa month ago

Last Crystal Palace lineup:

 V. Guaita; J. Ward, J. Andersen, M. Guehi, T. Mitchel; C. Gallagher, C. Kouyaté, J. McArthur; J. Ayew, C. Benteke, W. Zaha.
12:57 PMa month ago

Last Liverpool line-up:

Previous games:

Reds and Eagles have met a total of 58 times (32 wins for Liverpool, 12 draws and 14 wins for Crystal Palace) with the scales tipping in favor of Klopp's side by a narrow margin. Similarly, it is the owners of the "You'll never walk alone" who have the advantage in goals scored as the balance is in their favor with 119 goals while the Eagles have 56. Their last meeting dates back to the 38th matchday of the 2020-21 season where curiously at Anfield the home team won over the visitors by a score of 2-0.

12:47 PMa month ago

Referees:

For this match, Anthony Taylor will be the central referee, accompanied by Gary Beswick and Adam Nunn as assistants 1 and 2 respectively, and Craig Pawson will be the fourth referee. In the VAR, referees Stuart Attwell and Constantine Hatzidakis will be in charge of monitoring any dubious play inside the box or that merits a red card.
12:42 PMa month ago

Difficult but not impossible

For their part, Crystal Palace Eagles are in mid-table with 5 points, which places them in 11th place overall. However, despite not occupying one of the places at the top, they may surprise at Anfield, as last matchday they surprised after defeating Tottenham by a wide score of 3 goals to nil, so they could repeat the same feat now against Liverpool and climb several places in the overall standings.
12:37 PMa month ago

In search of the lead

The Reds have had a great start to the tournament with 3 wins and a draw, which keeps them with 10 points out of a possible 12 in 3rd place overall, however, the goal difference played against them the previous matchday as they scored 1 point, the same as Chelsea and Manchester United, however, it was the Red Devils who took the lead in the championship. Likewise, they are in high spirits as in the last game they beat Leeds United away, so a home victory could place them as the new leaders of the Premier League.
12:32 PMa month ago

A duel of different realities

Matchday five of the Premier League will bring us a clash of realities when Liverpool receives Crystal Palace at Anfield. On the one hand, the team led by Jürgen Klopp is in third place in the Premier League with 10 points, however, the goal difference has played against them and has prevented them from being leaders in England's top flight. On the other side, the Eagles are in 11th position with 5 points so far this season and have only achieved one victory, so facing Liverpool will be a difficult but not impossible mission.
