Crystal Palace vs Liverpool Prediction
Liverpool was at their clinical best the previous game week, as they thrashed defending champions City with a scoreline of 3-1. In the widely anticipated game, which had the potential to determine the champions for the season, Klopp’s men found the back of the net right away in the 6th minute. They added one more in the 13th, via a Mohammed-Salah-penalty, to put the visitors under huge pressure.
Later in the second half, Sadio Mane too joined the party, and by then it was too late for a comeback for the Manchester outfit, and Guardiola’s woes at the Anfield continued.
Meanwhile, Palace was outclassed by the young guns of Chelsea, at the latter’s home. Under Frank Lampard, the team has been thriving, and they kept their impressive streak going on, with a goal apiece from Tammy Abraham, and Christian Pulisic.
This weekend, the momentum is sure with Liverpool. They are eager to continue their unbeaten run in the league, after defeating their toughest opponent, and with Pep’s boys taking on Chelsea next, the Reds have an opportunity to further extend their lead at the top.
Keep note that Liverpool fared fantastically well against this rival in previous h2h clashes. To quote a stat, they are on a winning streak of five games, in overall h2h fixtures, as well as at this stadium. Moreover, it’s been more than a decade since they have failed to find the back of the net against Palace.
In addition, this campaign, the Reds have dropped just two points in total, whereas their opposite number is winless in their last four, and have managed a total of just four victories from their preceding 15 appearances in front of the home crowd.
By all means, expect Liverpool to record a comfortable win this Saturday.
