Liverpool vs Crystal Palace: Routine win for Reds

Kick-off: 1500, 18/09/2021

Stadium: Anfield

Liverpool have begun the season in imperious style, looking back to the form that saw them lift the Premier League title in 2019/20.

Palace shipped nine unanswered goals over the course of two fixtures with Jurgen Klopp’s side last season and could be set for another long afternoon at Anfield.

The hosts are backed to dominate this match and we fancy them to be in control from start to finish so Liverpool HT/Liverpool FT at 7/10 is our first Liverpool vs Crystal Palace prediction.

A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds

The Reds have been firing on all cylinders this season and there is real optimism of another title challenge at Anfield.

An emphatic 3-0 win over Leeds last week was proof that Liverpool are back to their very best and they kept their third clean sheet in four during that Elland Road contest.

That victory was slightly overshadowed by the horrific injury suffered by Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott, but Klopp will be confident he has enough depth in his squad to cover the loss of the talented 18-year-old.

Liverpool are unbeaten in six at home and it will be hard for the visitors to end a run of eight straight defeats at the hands of the Merseyside outfit.

The Reds to win 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 at 31/20 appeals in the Liverpool vs Crystal Palace odds.

Last Liverpool EPL line-up: Alisson, Van Dijk, Robertson, Matip, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Thiago, Elliott, Mane, Salah, Jota.

A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds

Palace supporters have had to watch this fixture through their fingers in recent times and they have not won at Anfield since 2017.

Wilfried Zaha last put the ball in the Liverpool net for the visitors, but it has been one-way traffic since, conceding 14 unanswered goals.

Palace picked up just one point from their opening three games, but whatever boss Patrick Vieira said during the international break clearly worked, as three goals in the last 15 minutes saw them dismantle Tottenham at Selhurst Park last week.

That first victory of the season will give Vieira’s men some confidence, but  they are unlikely to be as prolific against a Liverpool defence which has conceded just one goal this campaign.

Palace have also failed to score in their last three games with the Reds and for our final Liverpool vs Crystal Palace prediction we’re backing the hosts to win both halves at 13/10.

Last Palace line-up: Guaita, Ward, Mitchell, Guehi, Andersen, Kouyate, McArthur, Gallagher, Ayew, Zaha, Benteke.
