Crystal Palace vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2020
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park.
Despite all their injury setbacks, the Reds have been the best team in the league so far. And the last match-day, they proved it on the field with an emphatic and clutch display against closest competitors – the Spurs.
As of now, the title-holders are at the top of the table, and have a lead of three points. Moreover, the second-placed Spurs are pitted against the fourth-placed Leicester, and the third-placed Southampton are locking horns with Manchester City.
Thus, a great opportunity awaits Jurgen Klopp’s men to extend their lead at the top. All they need to do is to take care of the challenge posed by the struggling Glaziers.
Roy Hodgson’s men have won just thrice in the league since September, and all of these three victories had come against the three newly promoted teams.
Moreover, they also have a worrying h2h record against this opponent over the past several years.
By all means, expect the in-form Liverpool to secure the three points this weekend at the Selhurst Park.

Crystal Palace vs Liverpool: Prediction
Hodgson’s men were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day on the road, by West Ham. In the meantime, Klopp’s men recorded a 2-1 win at home against Tottenham.
Going on, the title-holders were unbeaten in 32 of their former 36 overall games, and they have lost just once on the road all through this campaign.
On the other hand, their opposite number have won just twice at home this season, and have kept a total of just two clean sheets at this venue since March.
In addition, the Reds also have a phenomenal h2h record against this foe in the past three decades, and especially so in the recent years.
With their new-found confidence after beating Tottenham and climbing to the top of the table, count on Liverpool to make light work of Crystal Palace and post the three points on the board.
