Crystal Palace v Liverpool Betting Preview

Liverpool’s quest for the Premier League title is gaining momentum, and their upcoming noon match against Crystal Palace could propel them to the top of the table, at least temporarily.

Despite finishing outside the Champions League spots last season, Liverpool, under Jurgen Klopp, have emerged as contenders this year, thanks to a major overhaul of their midfield during the summer break.

Liverpool’s Premier League campaign has been impressive, with just a single loss, a contentious 2-1 defeat to Tottenham. That match saw Liverpool reduced to nine men and a goal incorrectly disallowed by VAR.

Although they didn’t shine in their midweek match against Sheffield United, Liverpool secured a 2-0 victory, keeping them just two points behind the league leaders, Arsenal.

Now facing a Crystal Palace team in poor form, Liverpool, on another away trip, have a good chance to continue their success. Crystal Palace, with only one win in their last eight matches, are struggling.

Roy Hodgson has been lauded for revitalizing Crystal Palace last season after taking over from Patrick Vieira. The team began this season well, but recent losses to Everton, Luton, and Bournemouth have seen them slip to 14th in the league.

Their recent defeat to Bournemouth at Selhurst Park was a blow, and with upcoming games against Liverpool, Manchester City, and Brighton, Crystal Palace faces a challenging period.

Betting Odds

Currently, Crystal Palace are the underdogs, with odds of 5/, which seems generous for a home Premier League game. Liverpool are favorites at 4/7.

Previous Encounters

Crystal Palace has had a tough time against Liverpool in recent meetings, with no wins in the last 12 encounters, including a 7-0 loss at Selhurst Park three years ago. However, both of last season’s matches ended in draws.

Key Players

For Crystal Palace, Michael Olise, back from injury, could be a threat to Liverpool’s defense. He’s priced at 13/2 to score at any time and 5/1 with Bet365 for an assist.

Darwin Nunez, likely to start for Liverpool, is overdue a goal, having not scored in four games. Bet365 offers odds of 6/4 for him to score in this match.
