Liverpool's title charge approaches another hurdle this weekend as they face Crystal Palace away from home.
Crystal Palace currently sit 14th in the Premier League with four wins, four draws and seven losses from fifteen games this season.
The Eagles are having a pretty uninspiring campaign under Roy Hodgson so far this season having struggled to recreate the exploits of recent seasons - albeit with a critically injured squad.
Roy Hodgson's side are coming into this game very much out of form, winless in their last four games having lost three of them.
Their most recent game saw them fall to a disappointing 0-2 loss at home to Bournemouth in a game that only consolidated worries that had been creeping in amongst the fanbase.
Their form at Selhurst Park, which has been strong for the past couple of seasons, has been unrecognisable as they enter this match winless in their last five games at home with all of their last three ending in defeat.
As previously mentioned, Palace have had to make do without their two best-attacking players in Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise for large portions of this season which has hampered them hugely, but there is also a feeling that the South London club have started to hit a wall under Hodgson just as they did when they parted ways with the ex-England boss back in 2021.
Time will tell, but it would be of little surprise to see Palace make a managerial change sometime in the very near future as they stare down the barrel of another defeat here.
Liverpool currently sit 2nd in the Premier League with ten wins, four draws and one loss from fifteen games.
Jürgen Klopp's side are back where they believe they belong as they sit in and amongst the title mix, just two points off top spot.
The Reds are coming into this game in very good form, unbeaten in their last five games having won four of them.
Their latest outing saw them claim a 2-0 win away at Sheffield United thanks to goals from Virgil van Dijk and Dominik Szoboszlai.
While their form away from Anfield has been decent having won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five games they do feel slightly more vulnerable when playing away from their home ground.
Regardless, however, they're night and day compared to last season and feel somewhere nearer their best even though they're more flawed than the side that nearly hit 100 points a few years back.
They're facing Crystal Palace at the best possible time here and should win without too much difficulty.
For our Crystal Palace vs. Liverpool prediction, we're going for a 3-0 win for the away side.
