Crystal Palace vs Liverpool live: Injuries and international call-ups will leave both the Eagles and the Reds shorthanded when they meet at Selhurst Park on Sunday (Watch live, 9 am ET on Peacock Premium).
Liverpool will once again be without superstar attackers Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, as well as midfielder Naby Keita, after the trio’s respective national teams advanced to the knockout rounds of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations. The absence of Salah and Mane has afforded Diogo Jota an even larger stage on which to perform and become the leading man. Jota bagged both goals in Liverpool’s League Cup semifinal victory over Arsenal on Thursday, on the heels of another stellar performance in the 3-0 victory over Brentford last weekend.
Crystal Palace are without a star duo of their own, with forward Wilfried Zaha and midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate also still at the Africa Cup of Nations. The Eagle fared well enough last time, though, as they battled to their way to a 1-1 draw with Brighton a week ago. Conor Gallagher scored for the Eagles (his 7th of the Premier League season), as his fantastic loan stint (from Chelsea) continued.
