Liverpool and Crystal Palace both allowed three goals in their season openers, but the results were very different. The Reds were able to score three and settled for a draw with Watford. Palace were blown out by newly-promoted Huddersfield 3-0. On Saturday, the two teams meet at Anfield looking to improve on their first result of the season.
Daniel Sturridge returns to the Liverpool squad after a thigh injury, but Philippe Coutinho, Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana are all missing.For Palace. Wilfried Zaha is sidelined after suffering a knee injury in the defeat by Huddersfield.We were not really disappointed about our first game but it was how a first game can be. There are things to improve and it’s always like this, but even then we could’ve won which I think everybody knows.”For Crystal Palace it was a little bit different. They want to strike back I’m sure but, again, it’s Anfield and we have to show this.”
Despite having 56.1 percent possession, Crystal Palace could not find the back of the net. The Eagles were able to win 12 corners but had only four shots on target. Manager Frank de Boer spent the majority of his time with Ajax using four at the back but has decided to use three at the back with Palace. After allowing three goals, including an own goal, de Boer might reconsider the formation he uses. If Liverpool continue to make defensive mistakes, Palace need Christian Benteketo finish his chances.
