With Alan Pardew looking to get his side away from the bottom and a relegation battle Crystal Palace will be hoping they can shock Liverpool in Sunday's early kick off. Liverpool recovered from their cup loss impressively with a 3-0 win at Anfield on Wednesday against their cup conquerors Manchester City. Milner and Henderson have been linking well lately with Firminho, Couthino and Sturridge all very dangerous up front and Liverpool are on the rise in the League table up to eight and a team no one particularly wants to meet at this moment in time. Jurgen Klopps side though have been really unreliable in terms of putting together back to back results and their away form was abysmal earlier in the season and they have actually lost four of their last seven away games.
Crystal Palace are a team similar to Liverpool in that on their day they are almost unplayable but their day hasnt come consistantly enough. With a midfield full of creative talent in Bolasie, Puncheon and Cabaye it's easy to see why Crystal Palace can play against the top teams and compete. Conor Wickham has suddenly come to life with three goals in his last two where he hadnt scored from open play in his previous fifteen. Selhurst Park will be hopping on Sunday morning and one thing that Palace have consistantly done is they have tactically set themselves up right in most of their games. Pardew has done a good job tactically and I think he will have a game plan for Liverpool.
I dont think Liverpool deserve favouritism away from Anfield, they have been far too inconsistant. For me Crystal Palace will give this a good rattle and getting better than evens on Crystal Palace and the draw. That makes sense to me.
