Predicted Liverpool XI v Palace: Klopp brings Kabak back in, Jones starts
Liverpool bring their 20/21 season to a close and can cement Champions League football if they beat Crystal Palace at Anfield today.
The Reds have put together a barn storming run of form to creep right back into contention and a game against Palace, who have nothing to play for, is more than ideal.
Jurgen Klopp will get the chance to say goodbye to Roy Hodgson. The former England manager is stepping away from football and it’s quite fitting he takes his last game at a ground where he failed a bit as manager.
On the pitch, Liverpool have a number of big calls to make. Ozan Kabak could be given the chance to stake one last claim in defence before his loan spell ends. In the midfield, Gini Wijnaldum could play his last game, although Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are both pushing for starts.
The Reds will be without Diogo Jota, though. That will leave the usual front three of Firmino, Mane and Salah to do the business.
Here, then, is our predicted Liverpool XI as they take on Crystal Palace today.
