Crystal Palace v Liverpool Preview, Premiership, Monday 5th May 2014

Crystal Palace are safe from relegation in their first season back in the Premiership and have played some decent football over the past 10 months and although the players have nothing really left to play for in this penultimate game, a victory over Liverpool would certainly be something for the fans to celebrate.

Liverpool must win this game to stand any chance of capturing their first ever Premiership league title as with Brendan Rogers side slipping up against Chelsea last weekend, they now have to win their final two games of the season and hope that Manchester City drop points in their final two remaining games.

Crystal Palace Team News:

The hosts have no reported injury problems or suspensions for this game so expect manager Tony Pulis to play his strongest side available for this game in attempt to end the season on a high. Midfield Jason Puncheon is the clubs current top goalscorer with 7 and will provide support for Chamakh and Jerome who look likely to lead the attack up front on monday night.

Liverpool Team News:

José Enrique, Sebastian Coates both remain unavailable for Liverpool manager Brendan Rogers who will also be missing midfielder Jordan Henderson through suspension but other than these three players Liverpool should field a strong squad as they go in search of a must win match and Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge will likely lead the attack up front for the visitors come monday night.

Crystal Palace v Liverpool Head to Head Statistics:

Monday night’s game from Selhurst Park will become the 29th meeting between these two clubs over the years, of which Crystal Palace have won 6 times (5 at Selhurst Park), Liverpool have won 16 times (5 coming at Selhurst Park) and there has been just 6 draws (4 of those coming at Selhurst Park).

As we can see in the head to head statistics table below, Liverpool have a slight advantage on the previous 5 matches played having won 3 times with Crystal Palace having won the other 2.

Interestingly Crystal Palace have won both games played between the two club at Selhurst Park during this period.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

81 Goals have been scored in the previous 28 meetings between the two clubs over the years which provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.89.

32 of those Goals having been scored at Selhurst Park in the previous 14 matches played between these two clubs we are provided with an average goals per game statistic of 2.28.

Both average goals per game statistics suggest that this game on Monday night should see between 2 or 3 goals scored.

Crystal Palace v Liverpool Match Betting Odds Market

Crystal Palace are as big as 8/1 with Bet365 (£200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers) to win this game on monday night, which for me does seem overpriced considering their home form at Selhurst Park this season and although the players have nothing really left to play for in their final two games of the season, I can still see this being a very tight game that Crystal Palace are more than capable of winning.

The Draw has not been a result that has been seen a lot when these two clubs have met each other over the years and with Liverpool having to win this game, I doubt very much if those statistics are going to change and the current best price of 4/1 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) pretty much suggests that. But sides have found getting a victory at Selhurst Park this season very difficult to come by and it might be a shrewd option to get on the draw here as your main cover bet.

Liverpool can take a step closer towards winning their first ever Premiership league title with a victory, but with their fate now to be decided on what Manchester City do in their final two remaining games of the season an early goal by Palace could see the Liverpool players heads drop and for me their current best price of 2/5 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) does look very short indeed and no value in my opinion.

Crystal Palace v Liverpool Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A must win game for Liverpool and as such the pressure is certainly going to on them more than it will Crystal Palace and with Tony Pulis’s side having had a very good season at Selhurst Park in front of their home fans an early goal by the host’s could see Liverpool admit defeat despite being highly unlikely and for me the hosts are exceptional value to win this game on monday night at their huge odds avaialable.

Liverpool’s 2-0 defeat last weekend against Chelsea would of had an obvious effect on the players confidence as the Premiership title is now in the hands of Manchester City and if Manuel Pellegrini’s side win their remaining two games then they would secure their second title in three years and with the Liverpool players having seen Manchester City beat Everton 2-3 at Goodison Park yesterday afternoon it does look like Liverpool have thrown the title away with that defeat against Chelsea last weekend.

Onto some predictions for this game and I am going to be quite brave with my Banker prediction and go for Crystal Palace to Win this game on the Asian Handicap as I can easily see the hosts scoring in this game and with a very good defensive record at Selhurst Park this season Liverpool will find it difficult to score goals.

My Saver is going to be a correct score of 1-1 as if Crystal Palace were to score the first goal of the game I would expect them to defend deep in large number to try and protect their lead and this would make it even more difficult for Liverpool to score and although I do think Liverpool will score, they might only get one if the hosts do manage to take an early shock lead.
