On hold

Tonight’s match at Anfield will have a slightly strange feel to it. Not only will the stands be silent but the home side still can’t secure the title thanks to their failure to clinch maximum points against Everton last time out. Jurgen Klopp’s men will surely win the title at some point, however as things stand it seems as though the Reds are in a holding pattern with the inevitable remaining just out of reach but tantalisingly close.




Merseyside derby matches usually fail to inspire, however even by normal standards the meeting with the Toffees was a thoroughly lacklustre and tedious affair. Tonight’s outing really needs to get the juices flowing but one feels that it will prove to be another damp squib.

Crystal Palace do tend to serve up something extra-special in this fixture and while they are generally beaten in this fixture, we envisage them giving the champions-elect plenty in the way of meaningful competition.


Tough opponents

Palace had few problems when brushing aside AFC Bournemouth last weekend and while they have lost five on the bounce against Liverpool, all-but-one of these have just been by a single goal.




Ring-rust was very much in evidence on Merseyside last weekend with both Liverpool and Everton appearing to go through the motions and little else, therefore with a largely silent Anfield unlikely to spur the home side into much action, we don’t envisage the hosts playing at their very best this evening. As far as Klopp is concerned, it will just be a matter of getting the job done and visiting boss Roy Hodgson will look to make life as hard as possible for the hosts.

Liverpool should get the better of Crystal Palace tonight, but expect it to be by a single goal. Again.
