Monday night football is back, as we see two great sides go into battle in the form of Liverpool and Crystal Palace. Jurgen Klopp‘s side will be looking to get their first win of the season after they drew 2-2 in the first game in what was a shock result at Craven Cottage against Premier League new boys Fulham.
Crystal Palace will be looking to do the same; they were beaten by a fantastic Arsenal side on the opening day – so Patrick Vieira will be looking to get his boys the first three points in their season as well.
We’re looking forward to this one, so let’s dive into things. Here’s everything you need to know about the fixture between Liverpool and Crystal Palace.

Liverpool’s worst bit of news that came out of their opener against Fulham is that Spanish midfielder Thiago could be out for at least four and up to six weeks with the hamstring injury he picked up at Craven Cottage – he joins Diogo Jota, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones and Ibrahima Konate in what is an ever-growing injury list.
Meanwhile, Palace’s new boy Cheick Doucoure was forced to leave the field with cramp against Arsenal but should be fine for the trip to Anfield. Michael Olise could also return to the matchday squad.
Neither side have any suspensions they need to worry about in this fixture.
Liverpool Predicted XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Keita; Salah, Nunez, Diaz
