Liverpool FC vs Crystal Palace: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results
iverpool are gunning for their first win of the Premier League season when they welcome Crystal Palace to Anfield on Monday evening.
A frustrating 2-2 draw at Fulham means the Reds already trail title favourites Manchester City by two points, but Darwin Nunez debut – in which he scored and assisted – was a huge positive.
Palace huffed and puffed in their season-opener against Arsenal, but on another night Eberechi Eze or Wilfried Zaha would have scored. The pair will need to be on top form at Anfield.
