Sports Innovation previews the Premier League match between Liverpool and Crystal Palace and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.
Liverpool have an opportunity to move temporarily on top of the Premier League in Saturday’s clash with Crystal Palace.
The in-form Reds have enjoyed an almost flawless start. 10 points out of a possible 12 leaves them third in the standings, while one goal conceded in four games is the league’s joint-best defensive record. That, along with an eight-match-winning streak against Palace, leaves them in a sound position.
Palace, on the other hand, picked up a first win under new manager Patrick Vieira last weekend by beating Tottenham 3-0. The Eagles are now up into 11th-place in the league table on four points.
Let’s have a look at the form of both sides and the stats from their previous encounters to come up with a reasonable betting prediction.
