What is the team news?


Liverpool's injury crisis has worsened with defenders Joel Matip, Ragnar Klavan and Lucas Leiva all doubtful for Sunday's fixture.

They are already without influential midfielders Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson as they attempt to consolidate their top-four spot that would guarantee another Champions League campaign, although the former could be in line to return against Watford on May 1.

Defender James Tomkins and striker Loic Remy are expected to feature at Anfield, according to manager Sam Allardyce.

With on-loan Liverpool centre back Mamadou Sakho ineligible, Allardyce is pleased to see Tomkins available as a defensive reinforcement after he recovered from a calf injury.

Midfielder James McArthur and full back Patrick van Aanholt could also return to the starting lineup at Anfield after coming on as second-half substitutes against Leicester City last weekend.

Remy has endured a stop-start season on loan from Chelsea, making only seven appearances because of injury, but has recovered from a calf strain and will be back in contention for the first time since a late substitute's appearance in the 1-0 defeat at Stoke City in February.

What are they saying?

Jurgen Klopp on facing ex-player Christian Benteke:

"When the ball is in the air Christian is a major threat. We felt it a lot of times here.

"If we let them cross 50 balls it's pretty likely he will have some dangerous headers.

"But if you only concentrate on Benteke, you have (Wilfried) Zaha and (Andros) Townsend around him. That is one of the best offensive lines in the Premier League."

Sam Allardyce:

"We're in Champions League form for picking points up, which should give us a huge amount of confidence on Sunday. Hopefully we can be good enough, big enough and brave enough, and confident enough to try and repeat what we've done (in impressing) against Chelsea and Arsenal recently."

What are latest odds?

Liverpool to win 1/2

Palace 11/2

Draw 10/3

What's our prediction?

Liverpool have been on a great run of form recently and are unbeaten in seven games. Palace, on the other hand, have already surprised Chelsea and Arsenal and will be continuing to fight for their league survival at Anfield. We're going for a lively 1-1 draw.
