Two teams looking to solidify their place in the top half square off at Anfield as Liverpool hosts Crystal Palace live online at NBC Sports Live Extra.
Christian Benteke is the leader up front for the Reds, supported by Philippe Coutinho who Palace manager Alan Pardew called “one of the top five attackers in the Premier League.” Jordon Ibe has earned his third start of the Premier League season, and his first since August 17th after scoring the winner midweek in Europa League play.
On the other side, Dwight Gayle has not proven fit, instead missing out with a hamstring injury. Also out is Marouane Chamakh, but Connor Wickham makes the bench after missing all of September and October with a calf problem.
Palace comes into this game in 10th just a point behind Liverpool. Should either side win, they would jump into eighth, moving above Everton and within reach of West Ham, Tottenham, and Southampton.
