What Trueform says for Crystal Palace vs Liverpool
Crystal Palace opened their Premier League campaign with a useful win at Fulham, but Liverpool were more impressive when thrashing West Ham at Anfield.
That ties in with last season’s head-to-head form, with the Reds being pushed hard by the Eagles but coming out on top by a single-goal margin in both meetings.
Punters can get 27/10 for Jurgen Klopp’s side to score one more than their opponents again here and that is our first Crystal Palace vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace failed to pick up a point in their opening seven games last term, before being rescued by Roy Hodgson, so the 2-0 triumph at Craven Cottage will have come as a big relief.
Jeffrey Schlupp put the Eagles ahead on 41 minutes and Wilfried Zaha wrapped up the win late on after being played through on goal by impressive fellow academy graduate Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Zaha was the subject of much transfer speculation over the summer after sparkling in Palace’s strong run to safety, so keeping the flying winger was a huge boost.
He said: “All that stuff was not going to affect me or how the team were playing.
“Whatever happens happens, but I’m all Palace – and you can see on the pitch that all I think about is the team doing well.”
Since Palace returned to the top flight in 2013, both teams have scored in nine of their 10 encounters with Liverpool.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool were heavily backed to mount a title challenge before the start of the season and justified that faith with a 4-0 drubbing of West Ham first up.
Mohamed Salah got the ball rolling after 19 minutes, Sadio Mane hit a double either side of half-time and Daniel Sturridge came off the bench to complete the rout in the closing stages.
Defender Virgil van Dijk described it as an “almost complete” performance but admitted consistency will be the key to closing a 25-point gap on champions Manchester City.
The Dutchman declared: “It’s just one game. I think the key is we need to be very consistent and do it every game.
“We know that right now we have a great squad. We have a lot of quality players. Everyone who plays for Liverpool has a lot of quality.
“It’s all about being consistent. We want to challenge for any competition.”
The Reds have won on their last four trips to Selhurst Park, with three of those matches ending up 2-1.
Let’s add 15/2 for a repeat of that scoreline to our Crystal Palace vs Liverpool betting tips.
