Crystal Palace vs Liverpool Match Details
Crystal Palace takes place at Selhurst Park on Saturday 23 November. Kick-off 3.00pm.
Crystal Palace Form
Crystal Palace made a decent start to the season including away wins against Manchester United and West Ham, but they’ve struggled against some decent teams in their last few matches and are looking for their first win in five against the most in-form team in England.
Palace started their season with a home draw against Everton and followed that with home wins against Aston Villa and Norwich, form which doesn’t look overly strong now. Their subsequent draw with Wolves was respectable, but they’ve lost their last two home games 0-2 against Leicester and Manchester City, the next two best teams in the Premier League after Liverpool.
Palace are currently paying for a lack of goals, and they’ve treated their fans to just four goals at home in six matches this season.
Liverpool struggled to beat Southampton 2-1 in their first away game, but that did come after a tough Super Cup Final. They were better in a 3-0 win at Burnley, whilst their 2-1 at Chelsea came before Frank Lampard’s blues had hit full stride.
Like many teams, they then struggled to overcome Sheffield United, but would have been happy with a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in a fixture which they traditionally struggle to win. Their unbeaten record looked in real danger against Aston Villa but, in the style of true champions, they conjured two late goals to win 2-1 That means Liverpool have kept just two clean sheets in the Premier League this season.
Crystal Palace vs Liverpool Head-To-Heads
Crystal Palace and Liverpool have played each other 20 times in the Premier League, with Liverpool winning 12 times, Crystal Palace winning five times, whilst just three have been draws.
But Palace have a better record away from home as they’ve won three at Anfield compared to just two at Selhurst Park. They’ve also drawn two at home, with Liverpool winning six.
It could be even more significant that Liverpool have won the last four matches between the two teams, with Jurgen Klopp getting the better of Roy Hodgson on each occasion.
