In the English Premier League, Liverpool are set to host Crystal Palace at Anfield.
Things are looking good for Liverpool as they remain top of the Premier League ladder. In their last outing, Liverpool beat Brighton away from home. It was a convincing performance by the Reds as they completed 755 passes while controlling 71% of the ball. Egyptian striker, Mo Salah scored the only goal of the game via a penalty kick. Liverpool are currently 4 spots above Manchester City and while they have breathing room, the team will know the importance of winning this game as their title rivals are in good form.
On the other side of the pitch, Crystal Palace were beaten at home by Watford in their last match. It was a disappointing outing for Crystal Palace as the team led the game but conceded two second-half goals to throw away some much-needed points. Crystal Palace are currently 14th of the Premier League table and while there is space below them and the relegation zone, the Eagles will know that they are not safe yet. As far as Crystal Palace are concerned, any points from this game will be a bonus as they are much weaker than Liverpool.
When Liverpool and Crystal Palace met earlier in the season, Liverpool won 2-0. That match was played at Selhurst Park meaning the win for Liverpool was away from home. The previous match between Liverpool and Crystal Palace at Anfield was last season. Liverpool won that fixture 1-0.
Taking everything into consideration, I am picking Liverpool to win this match. Liverpool are a far more skilled side and they have players like Mo Salah and Sadio Mane who will be too much for Crystal Palace. With the Premier League title in grasp, I see Liverpool winning this match with ease.
