With the Reds still suspect at the back, Al Hain-Cole expects Hodgson's men to maintain their prolific form in a high-scoringh match at Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace and Liverpool will be hoping to maintain their winning starts to the season when they meet at Selhurst Park on Monday.

The Eagles ran out 2-0 winners over Fulham in their first clash, while their opponents were the biggest winners of opening weekend after thrashing West Ham 4-0.

Latest Odds

Having won four of the last five encounters between the sides, Jurgen Klopp’s men are 4/9 (1.44) favourites with bet365 to keep up the momentum with another victory here.

However, four of the last eight league meetings have resulted in Palace victories, and you can get odds of 13/2 (7.50) on them returning to winning ways in this one.

Just one of the last 16 matches between this pair has resulted in a draw, but there are odds of 4/1 (5.00) available on them cancelling each other out on this occasion.

Team News

Scott Dann, Connor Wickham and Jonathan Williams are all likely to miss out through injury, although Max Meyer may be in line for a belated debut after being unfit to start the opener.

Joel Matip is only fit enough for a place on the bench following a muscle injury, while Dejan Lovren is absent with a pelvis issue so Joe Gomez should retain his place in the centre of defence.

Defensive frailty

While the Reds’ famous attacking trio were immediately back to their deadly best on the opening weekend, there were also fleeting yet familiar signs of defensive frailty at the other end of the pitch.

Gomez’s inexperience alongside Virgil Van Dijk is bound to be tested even further by a home attack that has found the net in 14 of their last 16 league games in front of their own fans, scoring 13 times in the most recent five.

Predictions

All in all, odds of 3/4 (1.75) offer solid value on Roy Hodgson’s team joining Liverpool on the scoresheet for the 12th time in 13 meetings.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
