Liverpool predicted XI against Palace: Jurgen Klopp to make four changes, £3.5m man to start

Although Liverpool dropped two points at Everton last weekend and Manchester City convincingly won both their games since the restart, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds remain on the brink of a first top-flight English title since 1990.

At present, Liverpool are 20 points clear of Pep Guardiola’s side in the Premier League table and just five points away from sealing the title after a 30-year wait.

Up next for the Reds is Crystal Palace at Anfield on Wednesday night, a tricky proposition as they’ve won their last four league games in a row without conceding once.

However, the Eagles’ last defeat was on Merseyside, Everton running out 3-1 winners over Roy Hodgson’s charges at Goodison Park in February.

Liverpool have won their last 22 league games at Anfield and will be heavy favourites to take all three points and take a step closer to the coveted title.

Alisson Becker’s return to action following his hip injury was a welcome sight for Klopp and he will no doubt line up in between the sticks once again.

The Reds are sweating over the fitness of Joel Matip and James Milner, who were withdrawn prematurely against Everton.

However, Andrew Robertson is available for selection so he’s a shoe-in for left-back, taking back over from deputy Milner.

 

£3.5m ace Joe Gomez, meanwhile, should come in for Matip and line up alongside Virgil van Dijk, with Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back.

The midfield is relatively open – anyone of Fabinho, Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum could make up the three set to take on Palace.

Despite his good showing against the Toffees, Keita could be the one to drop out, with Gini taking his place – Klopp will surely want to rotate his options during this period.

Up front, meanwhile, Mohamed Salah is likely to return alongside Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino after shaking off a knock, with Takumi Minamino dropping to the bench.

Liverpool predicted starting XI: Alisson; Robertson, Gomez, Van Dijk, Alexander-Arnold; Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Henderson; Mane, Firmino, Salah
