Another great match up in the FA Cup this weekend as Liverpool travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace. Liverpool have suddenly caught form and wins over Tottenham and West Ham have strenghtened the resolve of the players that they can make it to a Champions League spot. The return of Daniel Sturridge and the form of Sterling and Couthino have been the catalysts. Even Mario Balotelli found his scoring touch on Wednesday as the reds won at home against Tottenham. Brendan Rodgers has maintained a positive outlook throughout the difficult period before Christmas and a deep run in the FA Cup and a trophy would be a great way for Stephen Gerrard to end his Liverpool career and for Brendand Rodgers to keep the Liverpool experiment alive.
Speaking of experiments the Alan Pardew experiment is well under way at Crystal Palace as Palace have been excellent since Pardew took over. The Palace players are playing like a team that needed a change and this change has been positive. Zaha, Gayle, Puncheon have all looked like new players under Pardew and Selhurst Park has been rocking in recent weeks. Five wins in their last seven games has Palace fans thinking that a top half finish is possible and with alot of the big guns going out of the last round of the FA Cup Palace fans are probably thinking if they can negotiate this tricky game then a shot at the FA Cup is probably on the cards.
I like the overs here, the way Liverpool have been playing recently leads to them creating and giving up loads of chances. Crystal Palace look like a team capable of taking a coupl eof those and I think Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling will take a couple down the other end. Take the overs .
