Liverpool vs Crystal Palace 23rd Apr 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Crystal Palace take on Liverpool this weekend as the South London club fights for relegation while for the Reds it is a place in the top 4 that is still worth fighting for. This game will be played at Anfield and although this will be a huge advantage for the Reds, this will still be a great watch all around.

Crystal Palace have been one of the most inform teams in England at the moment and with relegation still a possibility, the Eagles will look to keep up their good work as they head to Liverpool. This team seems to have found their perfect combination with a solid defence and an attacking quartet of Yohan Cabaye, Christian Benteke, Ardros Townsend and Wilfred Zaha. This team is well rounded and I think they will put up a great fight against Liverpool.

Liverpool on the other hand are having a few issues with injuries with Sadio Mane out for the rest of the season. That being said, this is still a team that is filled with tons and tons of quality and I think that they still have what it takes to make the top 4. This game is a must win though since the other top teams are all performing and it is getting very close near the summit of the Premier League ladder.

All in all, I think that only a fool would bet against Liverpool here but we simply are not getting a good enough price to bet on the Reds. That being said, Palace have been very solid at the back and Big Sam will know how to shut out Liverpool so under 2.5 goals seems like the best bet to me.

Pick:
Under 2.5 goals
