Liverpool v Crystal Palace Betting Tips and Odds

In our Liverpool v Crystal Palace betting preview we look at the best possible betting tips between the two sides.

Overview

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool face a threatening bogey team on Wednesday lunch-time, as they take on Frank de Boer’s Crystal Palace in the Premier League Asia Trophy at Hong Kong Stadium. Liverpool have been carefully planning who they’d be bringing into the club, in an attempt to rival the heavy-spending led by the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea. They’ve played out three exhibition matches so far, with positives to take from all three. Crystal Palace have been getting used to life under former Inter Milan manager Frank de Boer, only finding time for one friendly so far. These sides have played out some massive results in recent seasons, with their last encounter coming in the Premier League back in April, where Crystal Palace shocked Liverpool with a 2-1 win at Anfield.

Mohamed Salah looks likely to play a big part of Liverpool’s season

Jurgen Klopp has had a big task in hand at Anfield, as he’s looked to improve even more on his first full season at the club, where they narrowly scraped a place in the Champions League. There were some big slip-ups in the last campaign, including their 2-1 defeat at home to Crystal Palace, which came about midway through the term, as they went from kicking off in high spirits to slipping out of the top four. The fact that they managed to move back up late on had them finishing in a far stronger state, but there’s some big worries over whether they’ll have the nerve to show more strength with a few cleverly assigned acquisitions. Jurgen Klopp is in it on a long-term basis, so he’s clearly up for the challenge.

It wouldn’t be a big surprise if no major players depart the club this summer, helped by Philippe Coutinho’s future being pretty much confirmed after original interest from Paris Saint Germain and Barcelona. Their biggest signing so far has been Roma winger Mohamed Salah, who came in for an estimated £35.7m, exciting the fans in what they hope will be a big campaign of finally bringing in some silverware and challenging for the title. The only other transfer has been young Chelsea striker Dominic Solanke, setting up the sort of youth system which Klopp relied on so heavily when in charge of Borussia Dortmund. They’ve played three pre-season friendlies so far, beating Sydney FC 3-0, defeating Tranmere Rovers 4-0, and drawing 1-1 with Wigan Athletic.

Crystal Palace have let go of nine players in Frank de Boer’s reshaping

The shock departure of Sam Allardyce had Crystal Palace once again on the hunt for another manager who could lead them to some strong results, and it looks like Frank de Boer will be the best available option. Successes at Ajax will be the main reason for him getting the job, but last season’s failed attempts to reform Inter Milan back into the super-team they once were had him out the door by the start of November. It seemed like a harsh decision that had far more to it than we could see on the surface, so it’s hoped that he’ll have a far more exciting start, as well as being given more time to transform the team into the version he’d envisioned when taking on the challenge.

Making some massively expensive signings when at Inter Milan has de Boer expected to be waiting for as big a transfer list when in control of The Eagles. He’s slowly setting his stamp on the London-based side after already releasing nine players, including former fan favourites Joe Ledley and Fraizer Campbell. It’s been a more reserved effort to bring players into the club, many already linked but hardly any signed, with the only notable acquisition coming in the form of promising Chelsea midfield Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan. Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha are in the squad for this competition and it’s good they are, because keeping hold of both will be vital to Frank de Boer’s chances.
