Liverpool vs. Crystal Palace live!: This lunchtime at Selhurst Park, the action gets underway for another action-packed Premier League weekend with big stakes for both clubs. With a victory in south London today, Jurgen Klopp’s highly effective Liverpool may take the lead in the standings and put further pressure on Arsenal before the current leaders take on a formidable test away at third-place Aston Villa this evening.
When compared to their rivals, Crystal Palace is currently in complete disarray. The dull Eagles have now only triumphed once in their last eight league games following a miserable 2-0 home loss to Bournemouth in midweek, which incited a furious home crowd to turn on manager Roy Hodgson. The former England manager is under increasing strain as his team faces a difficult schedule ending in 2023 and has to surprise a few people. However, he has to drop Michael Olise today and is missing Tyrick Mitchell.
As he attempts hard to prevent a fourth consecutive home league defeat in a fixture the hosts haven’t won here in the league for nearly a decade, Hodgson has apologized for saying that Palace fans have been “spoilt” in recent years. Liverpool, encouraged by the return of Alisson Becker to goal, is up against Palace. Watch Crystal Palace take on Liverpool live below, with updates and commentary from Dom Smith of Standard Sport from Selhurst Park.
