class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The hosts have been in excellent form in recent weeks and Goal is backing them to secure a Champions League berth by recording a high-scoring win
Liverpool welcome Crystal Palace to Anfield on the final day of the Premier League season with Jurgen Klopp’s men hoping to secure Champions League football.
A win for the Reds would book their place in Europe’s premier club competition, while they could even afford to drop points provided they match Leicester City’s result at Tottenham.
Palace, meanwhile, have nothing but pride at stake but will want to give retiring manager Roy Hodgson a perfect send-off at the ground where he was in charge for six months back in 2010.
Liverpool vs Crystal Palace Latest Odds
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last nine league matches, recording seven wins and two draws – a run which has seen them make an unlikely charge into the top four.
The disastrous home form of a few months ago has been put behind them and bet365 offer Sunday’s hosts at 7/50 (1.14) to claim a victory.
Palace can be backed at 14/1 (15.00) to spoil the party with a win or claim a creditable draw at 15/2 (8.50).
Liverpool vs Crystal Palace Team News
Jurgen Klopp has serious doubts over Diogo Jota and Naby Keita, while his long-term injury list remains one of the longest in the division with Jordan Henderson, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, Virgil Van Dijk and Ozan Kabak among those who are still sidelined.
Palace also have numerous absentees with James McArthur, Connor Wickham, Eberechi Eze, and Mamadou Sahko all out and Christian Benteke, Luka Milivojevic and Scott Dann all doutbful.
Liverpool vs Crystal Palace Preview
The Reds’ strong finish to the season has seen them rediscover their goalscoring touch, scoring 11 times in their last four, and even goalkeeper Alisson got in on the act with a dramatic winner at West Brom.
Given that a place in the Champions League is on the line, they should be backed to put in another big performance against a Palace team whose season has been effectively over for a while.
The Eagles have one of the leakiest defences on the road in the division, conceding 32 times away from home, and backing Liverpool to maintain the good feeling by putting a few goals past Vicente Guaita makes plenty of sense.
Liverpool vs Crystal Palace Tips and Predictions
Liverpool to win and score over 2.5 goals is priced at 4/6 (1.66), while backing the hosts to win with a -2 handicap at 11/10 (2.10) looks like an appealing option.
