Liverpool will be hoping to pick up their first Premier League win of the campaign as they face Crystal Palace tonight. Jurgen Klopp’s side were below-par at Craven Cottage on the opening weekend, with Mohamed Salah rescuing a point against Fulham late on.
They’ll need a much-improved display as Anfield gets a first taste of competitive action this season, and have every reason to be full of confidence as they look to make it 11 wins in a row over Palace. The last time the Eagles got the better of Liverpool was in 2017, when Palace made it a third consecutive win at Anfield, but it’s been a miserable run since then.
Patrick Vieira’s side pushed Arsenal in their opening league match but fell to defeat, as they look to get up to speed following a disrupted pre-season that saw the squad split between the UK and Australia.
