Crystal Palace v Liverpool tips: Three points for red-hot Reds
Can anyone stop Liverpool at the moment? Crystal Palace certainly can't.
October 28th, 2016
It would appear that the Reds are buying into Jurgen Klopp’s approach in a big way and it is certainly paying dividends. The weekend victory over West Bromwich Albion was enough to send Liverpool level on points with Premier Leaguer leaders Manchester City and they extended their unbeaten run to an excellent ten games with a 2-1 midweek win over Tottenham Hotspur in the EFL Cup.
To say that things are rosy in the Liverpool camp would be no huge exaggeration and Klopp will be eager to keep this momentum going for as long as possible. We believe that they will at least carry it into this weekend’s clash with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park and the bookies are pretty much of the same opinion with Betfair going 8/11 for a Liverpool win. Whilst this in itself is a decent price for what looks on paper to be a forgone conclusion, we would recommend taking the bigger price of 12/5 with Ladbrokes for Liverpool to win and both teams to score.
There can be no doubt as to who will dominate this match with Liverpool absolutely flying at the moment, however whilst they are having few problems finding the opposition’s net, they are finding it difficult to keep the ball out of their own and this should prove to be the case on Saturday afternoon.
Indeed former Reds player Christian Benteke would dearly love to score a goal against his former players and we believe that he could do just that, however let us instead focus on the numerous players in the Liverpool ranks who could get themselves onto the scoresheet at Selhurst Park this weekend, in particular Sadio Mane who has been a big hit at Anfield with some excellent performances and a few goals too. He has scored in all-but-one of Liverpool’s last four meetings with Crystal Palace and he represents a particularly solid bet on the anytime goalscorer market with Betfred going 7/4 that Mane finds the back of the net at some point on Saturday.
