Having proved a bogey team for the Reds in recent years, Al Hain-Cole expects Hodgson's men to put up a stern resistance at Anfield on Saturday

Liverpool will be hoping to avoid a slip-up when Crystal Palace visit Anfield in Saturday’s Premier League clash.

The Reds have lost three of their last four home games against the guests, who pulled off a shock win away to title rivals Manchester City last month.

Latest odds

Unbeaten in 31 league matches in front of their own fans, they are priced at 1/5 (1.20) with SportPesa to maintain the pace at the top of the league by running out winners here.

Roy Hodgson’s men followed up their victory at the Etihad Stadium with a win at Wolves in their subsequent away match, and are available at 29/2 (15.50) to upset the odds by coming out on top against his former side.

None of the last 10 encounters between this pair have resulted in draws, but you can get odds of 25/4 (7.25) on this one finishing up all square.

Team news

Trent Alexander-Arnold has joined Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren on the sidelines after picking up knee injury in the win over Brighton, while Gini Wijnaldum and Adam Lallana are also doubtful.

Julian Speroni could be set for a rare start in goal after Vicente Guaita and Wayne Hennessey both picked up minor injuries, with Christian Benteke also hoping for a first start since September after returning to the bench last time out.

Stubborn Palace

Although heavy favourites, Jurgen Klopp’s team will certainly be viewing this game as a potential banana skin considering the history of recent meetings.

As well as those three defeats in the last four home games, the Anfield faithful will have painful memories of seeing their side surrender a three-goal lead to draw 3-3 at Selhurst Park when they were last chasing the title back in 2014.

While a similar scoreline seems unlikely given Liverpool have conceded just three goals in their last 15 league home games, they could be in for a frustrating afternoon against a stubborn visiting backline.

Predictions

Considering only five teams have let in fewer goals than Palace this season, odds of 31/20 (2.55) are well worth backing on them keeping the scoreline to under 2.5 goals for their fifth match in six - and third in four meetings between this pair.
