Matchday 2: Crystal Palace/Liverpool

Disclaimer: This series is examining the games days prior to matchday, there is always the possibility for injuries, coach selections, etc. They may be updated to reflect most accurate starting lineup.
Crystal Palace v. Liverpool
Location: Selhurst Park
This match is set up to have about the same amount of “assurance” as todays Manchester United vs. Brighton game, I guess this is why they play the matches. Anyways, the goal projection is 3 (and they are supposed to be all for Liverpool).
Liverpool comes in on a tear, they’ve dominated their recent opponents. They have a pretty deep line all the way through and I think they should win this one easily.
I think Crystal Palace is outmatched in this game, but I think they will play with counterattacking intentions, and if they can catch Liverpool too far forward I think they could steal a goal or two. I think a point is really all Palace could hope for in this one.
Bold Predictions (tally will be kept on players identified and teams at the bottom of this running series):

  • Winner: Liverpool
  • Final Score: 3-1
  • Goalscorer(s):
    • Crystal Palace: Zaha
    • Liverpool: Salah (x2), Mane
