Liverpool v Crystal Palace: match preview

Crystal Palace built on an encouraging point at West Ham with a first win under their new manager against Tottenham last week but face a sizeable task to sustain that momentum at Anfield. Liverpool have won the past eight league meetings, Palace’s longest losing streak in the fixture, and Sadio Mané has scored in eight successive Premier League appearances against them. No player has scored in nine consecutive games against the same team in the competition’s history. Jürgen Klopp remains without the injured Roberto Firmino and plans changes after the midweek win over Milan. Andy Hunter
