The Merseyside men make the trip south to Selhurst Park as they resume league action after a two-week break

Liverpool will look to keep the pressure on Manchester United in the race for second when they take on Crystal Palace as the Premier League returns on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp's side are two points behind the Red Devils after losing to them at Old Trafford prior to the international break and they will be eager to make amends in the remaining games.

Of course, Liverpool are looking ahead to a crunch Champions League quarter-final clash, which takes place four days after the Palace game, so a win will set them up nicely.

Roy Hodgson is preparing to welcome his former club to Selhurst Park and he will be hoping his players can pick up where they left off before the international break.

Match Preview


Jurgen Klopp Liverpool

Liverpool's players may have gone into the international break on the back of an emphatic 5-0 win over Watford, but their loss to Man United the week before left a deep wound.

Not only did it knock the Reds off second place, it means that they can fall into fourth place should Tottenham - who are two points behind - win their game in hand, so the pressure is on.

They return to action on Saturday with an away game against struggling Crystal Palace, but the Eagles will be buoyed by the fact that they managed to end an unbeaten streak that had stretched to seven games in their last outing against Huddersfield Town.

A single Sadio Mane goal separated the teams when they met at Anfield all the way back in August but a lot has transpired in the intervening eight months and little can be read into that result.

However, what is certain is that, with Spurs snapping at their heels in the league and Man City looming in the Champions League just four days later, it is shaping up to be an intense final phase for Liverpool and Klopp.
