Crystal Palace vs Liverpool
English Premier League
Date: 31st March 2018, Saturday
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park (London).
Crystal Palace went into the international break on the back of a 2-0 away win at Huddersfield. The result come in good time with the team ground on the relegation battle at the end of a 7 match win-less run. They are currently 16th in the table with a 2 point cushion over the danger zone.
Truth to be told, the Seagull’s had the toughest of the fixtures since the wake of January. They played the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham during the period. Despite being unsuccessful in each of those games, their fighting spirit needs special prize. This is one reason for us to consider that we could get to watch a highly competitive game on Saturday when Liverpool comes to the Selhurst Park.
The Reds thrashed Watford 5-0 in their latest Premier League game to apply pressure on Manchester United in the race for second spot in the table. The win happened just after they lost at Old Trafford 1-2. Though, there is little pressure otherwise on Klopp’s men as they are comfortably poised to win the Champions League qualification as the fifth placed Chelsea is 7 points behind.
It will be worth to note that Liverpool had lost just 4 Premier League games this season. And all four happed away from Anfield, three of them against teams sitting inside the top four and the other against Swansea City in January this year. Yet, they are the second best away side in the league behind the Citizens and level with Tottenham Hotspur.

Crystal Palace vs Liverpool: Prediction
This won’t be a one way traffic for the third placed Liverpool despite Crystal Palace sitting at the opposite end of the table. Hodgson’s men have scored twice against the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United at the Selhurst Park.
Since, Livepool’s defense is not the best in the league and the same fixture has the consistent trend of registering 3 or more goals, we must keep both teams to score and over 2.5 goals as our premium choices.
However, Liverpool’s individual brilliance must come too good for the Seagulls and they might edge three points at the end of a potential thriller.
