Today sees Liverpool lineup against Crystal Palace in a Premier League fixture that could help them towards a potential 10 point lead at the top of the Premier League table. If the Reds win at Selhurst Park, Leicester fail to beat Brighton, and Manchester City draw with Chelsea – Jürgen Klopp’s men will have a lot of breathing room.

Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker

The Brazilian has found clean sheets hard to come by since getting back into his side, through no fault of his own. A clean sheet today would be invaluable.

Right back: Trent Alexander-Arnold

Trent’s world class delivery could prove vital as The Eagles are likely to sit deep and compact.

Centre back: Dejan Lovren 

Dejan Lovren has looked a new man in the Liverpool defence of late, today will ask a lot of his concentration.

Centre back: Virgil van Dijk

Who else?

Left back: Andy Robertson

We have cheated death as the Scottish dynamo is just about fit to play today.

Defensive midfield: Fabinho


Fabby will be looking to control the tempo of the game from deep whilst also stopping any counter attacks in their tracks.

Centre midfield: Jordan Henderson

Hendo will have to be at his efficient best today as we look to open up any gaps in the Palace back line.

Centre midfield: Gini Wijnaldum

Gini bagged a hat trick for the Netherlands over the break and is back in the side with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain having played twice in three days over the break.

Right wing: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

The Ox is the surprise inclusion in the starting lineup despite playing twice in three days over the international break.

Striker: Bobby Firmino

Bobby Firmino can unlock the deepest, most rigid of defences. We will need him at his creative best today.

Left wing: Sadio Mane

Our Senegalese superstar will have to be as lethal as possible today as The Eagles will be looking to limit our chances.
