League leaders Liverpool will host Crystal Palace on Saturday in a game of the Premier League. The Reds, managed to escape their mini-crisis of two defeats in a row with a victory over Brighton last weekend, thanks to another penalty goal by Mohamed Salah. Crystal Palace lost their home game against Watford and are now occupying 14th place in the standings, just 4 points away from the relegation zone. Probably this is not the best time for them to visit Liverpool at Anfield and the odds are against them, but as we know anything can happen in the Premier League.
