class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Both sides have been strong going forward but vulnerable at the back in the Premier League and our tipster is expecting plenty of action on Saturday
Liverpool will be looking to build on their dramatic victory over Tottenham in midweek when they travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday lunchtime.
A powerful injury time header from Roberto Firmino ensured the Reds took all three points at Anfield on Wednesday and leapfrogged Spurs to reach the summit of the table.
The Eagles, meanwhile, took a creditable point away at London rivals West Ham to extend their unbeaten run to three games after also beating West Brom and drawing with Spurs in December.

Crystal Palace vs Liverpool Preview
Despite having a whopping 76 per cent of the ball, Liverpool had to dig deep to come away with all three points on Wednesday night and it took 11 shots on target for them to net twice against Spurs.
They will hope for an easier outing at Selhurst Park given that Palace have only kept one clean sheet this season and allowed 29 shots on target at the ground, with only six teams facing more on home turf.
However, Roy Hodgson will back his team to get on the scoresheet as well as they have scored in six of their last nine Premier League games whilst Liverpool have only managed two clean sheets in their last 11.
Crystal Palace vs Liverpool Tips and Predictions
Although it is somewhat of a skinny price, the 7/10 (1.70) on both teams to score from bet365 actually looks like a solid selection for this Premier League clash, having paid out in 10 of Liverpool’s and eight of Palace’s fixtures this season.
