Liverpool have the chance to go top of the English Premier League with a win over Crystal Palace at home. The Reds defeated AC Milan 3-2 in a pulsating game in the Champions League and looks like their usual best with the return of key players this season. With Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea set to give stiff competition in the league, it is imperative Liverpool take on the maximum points from games such as these. Crystal Palace head into the contest full of confidence as they demolished Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 in their previous match. Jurgen Klopp will hope his players are not impacted after a grueling game in mid-week and could opt for some rotation.

Roberto Firmino, Harvey Elliot and Neco Williams continue to miss games for Liverpool with injuries. Divock Origi is set to undergo a late fitness test to determine his availability after suffering from a thig strain against AC Milan. Diogo Jota is all set to be restored in the playing eleven to lead the Reds’ attack. Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara have established themselves as the first choice for Jurgen Klopp in midfield and the likes of Naby Keita will have opportunities difficult to come by this season.
Jeffery Schlupp has returned to first team training for Crystal Palace but he is not ready for the Liverpool game. Wilfred Zaha and Jordan Ayew on each flank represent the visitors’ best opportunity to create chances at Anfield and it will be down to Odsonne Edouard to link up well with the duo. Christian Benteke is a decent option from the bench and could have an impact coming on late. Cheikhou Kouyate has his task cut at the base of midfield where he has to prevent his team from being overrun by their illustrious opponent.
