A win would see Liverpool go four points above 3rd-place Chelsea (with a game in hand, still), who will then kick off their derby clash with fellow top-four hunters Tottenham shortly after (11:30 am ET – How to watch).

Crystal Palace vs Liverpool prediction
Crystal Palace showed in their draw with Brighton that as much as they like to possess the ball, they can also sit deep in their own half and defend against some seriously lopsided possession and chance numbers. They’ll give Liverpool a stiff challenge, for a time, before relenting late. Crystal Palace 0-2 Liverpool.
