Prediction

Liverpool are reminded of ‘Crystanbul’ every time they travel to Selhurst Park - the scene of their diminishing title hopes in 2014. They looked to be missing Salah and Mane a great deal in the first leg of their Carabao Cup clash against Arsenal, but improved a little in the victory over Brentford. But Palace need a result after just one win in five and might be catching Klopp’s side at the right time. 2-2.
