Crystal Palace vs Liverpool

Liverpool take on Crystal Palace on Monday in a game that promises to produce magical moments and a lot of goalscoring chances base on the two clubs’ pedigree.

The Reds thrashed West Ham 4-0 last week, while the Eagles defeated Premier League newbies Fulham 2-0.

Roy Hodgson side were ruthless and a handful for the cottagers to handle in the first game of the season, they would be hoping to maintain their performance against a Liverpool side, who are really looking like title contenders.

Considering the level and quality of players in his squad, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is facing a huge dilemma on who starts and who should be on the bench.

Joel Matip returns to training- this week- for the first time since March due to his long-term injury, though, he might not be considered for selection as Virgil van Dijk and Joel Gomez are set to retain their place in the starting lineup.

New Signings Xherdan Shaqiri and Fabinho may have to start from the bench for the second consecutive matches this season.

Naby Keita, who joined the Reds from RB Leipzig, is certain of a place in Klopp’s starting XI as he was all over the pitch in against the Hammers.

However, below is the probable starting lineup for the Merseyside club against their London rivals.

Alisson Becker will surely start ahead of Loris Karius in the goalkeeping department, While, Young defender Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Gomez and Robertson are likely to start at the back of the pitch.

Wijnaldum, Milner, and Naby Keita will make up the three-man midfield while Mohammed Salah, Bobby Firmino and Sadio Mane complete the Reds first eleven for the game.

Karius, Clyne, Matip, Moreno, Henderson, Lallana, Fabinho, Sturbridge, and Shaqiri are going to start the game from the bench.
