Sat 09 Dec 2023 | Kick Off: 12:30 GMT | Selhurst Park, London

Jurgen Klopp will likely be delighted with the way that the first half of the season has gone for his Liverpool side. The Reds are firmly in the mix for the Premier League title at this stage of the campaign, and they could move to the summit in Saturday’s early kick-off against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

There will be pressure on the hosts, as Roy Hodgson’s side comes into the weekend after suffering defeats in three of their last four.

Crystal Palace Preview

The pressure is increasing on Roy Hodgson at this stage of the season, as Palace have suffered defeats in three of their last four matches. Meanwhile, they are yet to pick up maximum points over that stretch of fixtures in the Premier League. Fortunately for the Eagles, teams at the bottom of the standings aren’t picking up points, meaning that they remain nine points clear of the drop zone.

Palace were booed off at Selhurst Park in midweek, as they put in a hapless display against a rejuvenated Bournemouth. The Eagles eventually fell to a 2-0 loss in that fixture, and they offered very little in the final third throughout the match, recording just three shots on target despite having 60% of the possession.

Their home form could be a key trend to consider this weekend. The Eagles have won just five points from their opening seven matches at Selhurst Park this term, which is their second-worst start to a season in their history.

Liverpool Preview

After a disappointing 2022-23 campaign, Liverpool look back to their very best this term. The Reds come into the weekend sitting second in the standings, but they could move to the summit with a victory at Selhurst Park before Arsenal take to the field at Aston Villa later in the day. Liverpool have picked up victories in each of their last two, and they have suffered a joint-league low of just one defeat to this point.

The Reds put in a convincing display in midweek, as they claimed maximum points at Bramall Lane against relegation-threatened Sheffield United. Virgil van Dijk opened the scoring after 37 minutes, before the victory was assured following Dominik Szoboszlai’s effort in the fourth minute of injury time.

Scoring goals hasn’t been an issue for the Reds throughout the season, as they have now netted at least once in each of their last 32 matches across all competitions. That is their second-longest sequence in history after scoring in 34 straight matches between April and December 2021.

Crystal Palace vs Liverpool Betting Tips

These sides have played out draws in each of the last two matches, but Liverpool are unbeaten in 12 Premier League clashes against the Eagles. Palace have been in poor recent form in the league, and it appears challenging to overlook the clear claims of the visitors given their excellent run of results. Therefore, it could be worth siding with the Reds on the spread to land maximum points to move to the summit.
