Crystal Palace v Liverpool tips: Reds to edge Selhurst cracker?

| 15.08.2018

Meetings between Crystal Palace and Liverpool tend to be a treat for the neutral. And with both sides kicking off the Premier League campaign with top attacking displays, more of the same can be expected.

The Eagles soared to a 2-0 win at Fulham, whilst Jurgen Klopp’s men put four past West Ham United without reply.

Ahead of this cracker under the lights at Selhurst Park, we’ve got all the need-to-know, from tips to tactics…

Match Odds

Liverpool won each of the last two meetings, and they’re 4/11 for maximum points once again. Meanwhile, it’s 19/5 for the Draw and a chunky 7/1 for Palace to win.

It’s almost always a goal-filled affair. 11 of the last 13 clashes have seen both sides register – including each of the last six at Selhurst.

It’s 3/4 for Both Teams to score, while you can get a more sizeable 13/10 for Over 3.5 Goals.

Talking Tactics

The visitors tend to favour a 4-3-3 on the road. Liverpool went with that system on their last visit to this part of South London, and returned home with a 2-1 win.

More of the same is likely, with a front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah.

Palace are a strictly 4-4-2 outfit under Roy Hodgson. Penalty king Luca Milivojevic and James McArthur do the dirty work, with the flair options further forward.

Wilfried Zaha and former Anfield flop Christian Benteke are likely to lead the line.

Goalscorer Odds

Unsurprisingly, the red-hot Salah is firm favourite in the Anytime Goalscorer market at 7/10. Meanwhile, the Egyptian is 21/10 to Score 2 Goals or More.

One man with a good record at Selhurst Park is Firmino. He’s netted on two of the last three visits to SE25, and is 13/10 to net again tonight.

For the hosts, Zaha is in fine form – and grabbed the Eagles’ slick second at Craven Cottage on opening weekend. He’s 9/1 to break the deadlock, and 13/5 Anytime.
