Crystal Palace vs Liverpool
English Premier League.
Date: Saturday, 29th October, 2016,
Kick-off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Selhurst Park (London).

Crystal Palace have now suffered back-to-back league defeats, the latest at Leicester by a 3-1 margin before a 1-0 loss at home to West Ham. The did managed to pull out an excellent run in between picking up three consecutive wins sandwiched between two draws to constitute a 5 match unbeaten run. They are currently sitting 11th in the league table with 11 points from their 9 matches so far.

Liverpool have started to fire from all cylinders and are coming back on an excellent 2-1 win over Tottenham in the EFL Cup round of 16. Jurgen Klopp opted to field a fringe squad in the mid-week fixture and the young side didn’t disappoint their fans. More importantly, the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings got much needed playing time. Sturridge was star of the show scoring both the Liverpool goals and was denied a hat-trick more than once by the woodwork.

The Reds are currently unbeaten in their last 10 matches in all competitions, picking 8 wins during the period. They are currently third in the Premier League standings, but are level on 20 points with second placed Arsenal and leaders Man City.

Crystal Palace vs Liverpool: Head-to-Head Stats

Liverpool managed a 2-1 win against Palace when they visited Selhurst Park for the corresponding fixture of last season. But they lost the fixture at Anfield by the same goal-line.

Also it is hard to separate the two teams from the last 10 meetings as Palace are only slightly ahead with 5 wins as against Liverpool’s 4 wins and one match saw a stalemate.

Crystal Palace vs Liverpool: Prediction

It is fair enough to say that Liverpool is one of the most consistent side in the Premier League so far this season. They are also a team who are capable of scoring at will and are joint top scorers with 20 goals alongside league leaders Manchester City. And they managed to score at least 2 goals in 7 of their 9 league games so far.

Crystal Palace have shown glimpses of brilliance this season, but they do lack the consistency to maintain long streaks in the league. They are currently on three match win-less run and have suffered back-to-back defeats. The confidence will be low and the visiting Liverpool side could be backed for a comfortable win here.
