Crystal Palace V Liverpool: Team News And Betting Odds

Liverpool could have Xherdan Shaqiri back in contention for the game against Crystal Palace this weekend. The Swiss international has been pictured in training after recovering from a calf problem.

The 28-year-old last featured as a substitute in the 2-0 defeat against Napoli back in September. Joe Gomez is also expected to be fit after recovering from a knee injury that forced him to withdraw from England duty.

However, Mo Salah and Andy Robertson are both major doubts for the trip to Selhurst Park. The two players are struggling to overcome ankle problems. Joel Matip is also unlikely to feature due to a knee issue, and Nathaniel Clyne (ACL) also remains unavailable.

Captain Jordan Henderson has had a viral infection which may also put his participation against the Eagles on Saturday in question.

Palace are sweating over the fitness of Wilfried Zaha who has picked up a foot injury, while fullback Joe Ward is a major doubt due to a groin issue.

At the bookies, Liverpool are the favourites to get the win with Ladbrokes pricing them at 4/9. A draw is 19/5 with 888 Sport while a victory for the Eagles is currently 13/2 at Paddy Power.

Predicted Score – 1-0 to Liverpool
