Liverpool are struggling for form at present and have slipped into the bottom half of the Premier League table so the international break perhaps came at a good time for the Reds, giving them time to take stock and regroup.
Bookies think It might do the trick too as Brendan Rodgers’s side are William Hill’s 19/20 favourites to collect a vital three points as they travel to struggling Crystal Palace, Stan James’s 10/3 underdogs.
The two last met at Selhurst Park in last season’s penultimate fixture and on that occasion Liverpool’s title dreams effectively came to an end as they three away a three-goal lead to register a 3-3 stalemate.
It’s 27/10 via bet365 for the pair to again share the spoils and although it seems unlikely that this one will also finish three-each (90/1, BetVictor), punters could do worse than consider BetVictor’s 4/1 about a score draw.
