It is not going to get any easier for Palace, who host Liverpool here and face Manchester City, Brighton and Chelsea before the end of the year, a run of fixtures which threatens to drag them into a relegation battle.
Liverpool are very much fighting at the other end of the Premier League table and will go top, at least until Arsenal take on Aston Villa later today, if they can pick up all three points in south London.
Jurgen Klopp's side arrive at Selhurst Park in superb form and will be confident of extending their strong recent record against Palace - they have not lost in this fixture since 2017.
