Crystal Palace v Liverpool and 3 other bogey teams

| 06.03.2016

Liverpool will head to Selhurt Park buoyed by their 3-0 win over Manchester City in their last outing, but will need to be wary of Crystal Palace.

The Eagles have won three on the bounce in the league against the Reds and are unbeaten in their last four top-flight meetings with the Merseysiders.

Alan Pardew’s men are the 13/5 underdogs for the contest and despite their poor form, they’ve not won a league game in 2016, it would be wise to back them to continue their dominance over the visitors.

Here are three other big clubs and their bogey teams.

Chelsea v Sunderland

The Mackems famously ended Jose Mourinho’s long unbeaten run at home when they triumphed 2-1 in 2014 as they miraculously went on to avoid relegation.

Chelsea have won the last two encounters 3-1, but before that Sunderland had gone unbeaten in three against the Londoners, winning twice.

Manchester United v Swansea

After beating United for the first time since 1982 in a 2-1 FA Cup victory in 2014, the Swans have continued to get the better of the 13-time Premier League champions.

Since then, the two sides have met a further five times, with the Welsh side possessing the better record.

In that run, the Liberty Stadium outfit have won three times to Man Utd’s two and did the double over the north-west giants last season.

Arsenal v Stoke

Ryan Shawcross’ horror tackle on Aaron Ramsey that saw the Welshman pick up a long-term injury ignited a rivalry between these two and the Potters continue to annoy the Gunners.

In their last five meetings, they’ve both picked up two wins, with Stoke shocking the north Londoners with a 3-2 win last season.

The founding member of the Football League particularly flourishes at home against Arsenal, going unbeaten at the Britannia since 2011.
