It’s the early kick-off on Saturday where Liverpool have a chance to leapfrog Arsenal to the top of the Premier League if they can overturn Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
The Reds are gaining momentum in the league having come from behind to beat Fulham last week and giving Sheffield United’s new manager, Chris Wilder, a 2-0 baptism of fire.
On the note of fire, Roy Hodgson is under immense pressure as Palace boss, largely thanks to their recent form, losing five of their last seven in the league.
It doesn’t look like things will improve for the Eagles with their sick bay currently fully occupied by some of their crucial players.

Scintillating Salah to return to form
While he hasn’t found the back of the net since the start of November, Mohamed Salah has proven critical in creating opportunities for his teammates in the last few games.
However, in 12 appearances against Palace, the Egyptian King has scored nine times and provided six assists.
The Londoners will be without
Since Salah hasn’t scored in his last three Premier League fixtures, he’s due for a return, especially as the leading scorer for the Reds with 10 all season.

Liverpool to win both halves
Of their 15 league matches this season, Liverpool have led at halftime in six of them, equating to 40% of their total games.
They have a tendency to defend their lead having conceded only five times after taking the lead on 15 occasions.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have taken the lead in two of their five away fixtures to the break and you get the feeling they will add to that number at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.
Palace have lost more (four) games at home than they’ve won (one) and have accumulated no points at home when going behind first.

Goals either side of the break
With the second-worst attacking record in the division, don’t expect much from Palace going forward.
However, the visitors will likely strike in both halves as they’ve scored five and eight goals either side of the break when playing away from home this season.
Liverpool have netted 34 times this term, just two goals behind the prolific Manchester City.
Recent performances have demonstrated that this Liverpool team push for goals near the halftime mark and again near the end.
