Crystal Palace v Liverpool odds, Match Preview – Eagles big price to beat Reds

Latest Crystal Palace v Liverpool odds, match preview and latest betting as Brendan Rogers looks to stop his side’s slump in form today.

Both Crystal Palace and Liverpool need a result when they meet in Sunday’s Premier League clash.

Neither side go into the game in real form, with Palace winless in five and Liverpool in their last three.

Prior to the international break, Crystal Palace went down to a narrow defeat away to Manchester United.

Having defended well for long periods, Palace were undone by substitute Juan Mata whose long range effort took a slight deflection.

Liverpool were beaten at home by the league leaders Chelsea last time out, with Diego Costa scoring a second half winner.

Emre Can’s deflected effort gave Liverpool an early lead, however Gary Cahill equalised minutes later.

Chelsea were the dominant side after the break and Costa smashed home his 10th league goal of the season in a vital win for Jose Mourinho’s men.

Famously last season at Selhurst Park, Liverpool blew a 3-0 lead with the hosts rallying to earn an amazing draw.

Damien Delaney’s deflected effort pulled one back, before Dwight Gayle scored twice in a matter of minutes for Palace.

The result all but ended Liverpool’s hopes of winning the Premier League, although the Reds did win last season’s home fixture comfortably.
