Crystal Palace vs. Liverpool - Football Match Report

Adjust Comment Print

Gary Lineker has taken to social media to praise Liverpool FC's resilience after they claimed a 2-1 win at Crystal Palace to continue their fine start to the new season.

Hodgson's side host the league leaders on Saturday afternoon, with Liverpool having now opened up an eight-point advantage in the title race following their win over Manchester City prior to the global break.

Jurgen Klopp insists he is not interested in sending messages to Liverpool's Premier League rivals and is only concerned with winning games.

After a pause in Premier League action for the worldwide break, this week's news has been overwhelmingly dominated by all things Jose Mourinho and Tottenham related, meaning it all seems like a long, long time ago since Liverpool impressively beat Manchester City at Anfield to strengthen their position at the top of the Premier League summit.

Both sides have fire power in their back locker, and we think all the big boys will come out to play here - leading to the over 2.5 goals threshold being met pretty convincingly, which should make for a thoroughly entertaining encounter for the neutrals.

But Klopp is yet to assess the fitness of other key players who have returned from worldwide duty. They'll need to dig deep and get off to fast starts to maintain this advantage, but it just feels like at Palace could be one of those trap games.

"Today is another important session to see how it looks and we can make the decision". We are not out there to break records.

"We've been on the good end and bad end of VAR, so I've no complaints about that".

"Yesterday he trained. He has been training the things we want him to do. You have to wait until the last second to make a decision but nobody came back injured".

Napoli are the next team to take on the Reds as they'll pose a midweek Champions League problem, but for now Jurgen Klopp must focus on the league and we can all expect a full strength side to be fielded. He trained the whole time since he was here, but only the things we wanted him to do. "I will have to see the session later".
