Palace were the last team to win at Anfield in the Premier League – it was back in April 2017 – and they are 10/1 to clam all three points again on Wednesday.
They gave the Reds a good game here last season too, leading early on before eventually losing 4-3.
That was one of several impressive displays Palace produced on the road; they did win at Manchester City, Arsenal and Wolves. This season they’ve won as many as they’ve lost away from home (5).
A concern must be the packed fixture schedule – Palace won 2-0 at Bournemouth on Saturday, a result which increased their chances of grabbing a European spot.
A home game with Burnley, one which looks much more winnable, follows this match but at least it’s not until Monday so there will be more recovery time than might have been the case.
Liverpool’s goalless draw at Everton on Sunday means they can’t win the title in this fixture. They were far from their best in that one, with Mo Salah and Andy Robertson both missed.
However, the pair are available again here, even if James Milner and Joel Matip are not.
Those two should help raise the team’s level of performance but arguably Liverpool’s Sunday display cannot be simply be put down to two key players being absent.
In all competitions, they’ve now won just two of their last seven matches, losing four. By their standards, it’s quite a slump.
They will win the title but Jurgen Klopp’s men are stumbling over the line so it may be worth taking a chance on Palace, a team who have clearly troubled them in the past. They’ve actually won on three of their last five visits to Anfield and it’s also worth mentioning Liverpool needed an 85th-minute goal to win the reverse fixture.
Palace at 10/1 may be worth a small punt.
For something that looks rather more likely, both teams to score also appears overpriced at 5/4.
This bet has landed in 12 of the 14 meetings between the sides since Palace returned to the top flight in 2013.
Liverpool’s clean sheet at Everton (who hit the post late on) was their first in seven games. They’ve already conceded at home to Norwich, Bournemouth, Brighton and West Ham (twice) at home this season which says much.
