Liverpool are in pole position to finish in the top four and earn Champions League qualification. Next up, the Reds will collide against Crystal Palace.
Earlier in the season, the Merseysiders defeated the Eagles 4-2 away from home and should be considered favorites to earn all three points at Anfield.
Both teams have won 5 of their last 7 league games and Liverpool star Sakho has been crucial in Palace’s improved form. The French defender will not be able to play against his parent club at the weekend.
As far as Liverpool’s team news is concerned, at the moment, no fewer than 7 players are our injured for Jurgen Klopp (PhysioRoom).
In the absence of Sadio Mane, Divock Origi has mainly played in the attack for the Reds but the Belgian striker has done little in the last two games and should be replaced by Sturridge in the starting XI.
Here is Liverpool’s strongest possible 4-3-3 XI vs Palace.
