Premier League: Liverpool FC Vs Crystal Palace – Match preview
Liverpool should be confident, as they are the only Premier League side unbeaten across the last nine game weeks, while they’ve also won each of their previous four Premier League season finales by a 2 goal margin.
Barring an unforeseeable set of conditions, victory for Liverpool will guarantee them a spot in next season’s UEFA Champions League. They should be confident, as they are the only Premier League side unbeaten across the last nine game weeks, while they’ve also won each of their previous four Premier League season finales by a 2 goal margin. On top of scoring in the 31st-45th minute segment in five of their last six Premier League matches, Jürgen Klopp’s men have also fixed their home form, avoiding defeat in each of their previous five competitive games at Anfield. Three of those came in the league, and each of that trio threw up late drama, with a goal scored in or after the 90th minute.
After a remarkable managerial career stretching 45 years, boyhood Crystal Palace fan Roy Hodgson will oversee his final game on the touchline. A happy ending may not be forthcoming, though, given that Palace have lost seven straight PL meetings vs Hodgson’s former club Liverpool, with an aggregate scoreline of 22-5 against them. The ‘Eagles’ have also won on just one of their previous five Premier League road trips, despite going in level or winning at HT in all and scoring first in each of the previous three. They’ve also won just one away game vs a team currently above them in the table.
Liverpool have won each of their previous 11 Premier League games in which Roberto Firmino has scored first. In opposition, former Liverpool striker Christian Benteke returns to this part of Merseyside after scoring in four straight Premier League games. A tally of seven career goals against the ‘Reds’ makes them his joint-favourite opposition.
A significant 29.79 per cent of all goals in Liverpool’s Premier League matches have arrived after the 75th minute.
