Liverpool will lock their horns against Crystal Palace on Monday. After the emphatic win against West Ham United, the Reds will surely be up for the test. But the match is not going to be easy for Liverpool as Crystal Palace are also looking good at the beginning of the new season. Crystal Palace have won against Fulham in the London Derby in the first match of the Premier League in the new season. Moreover, the match will be played in the home of Crystal Palace. So, there is always a chance for the home team to deliver their best in front of their passionate fans. Here are the list of three players we need to watch out for in this match between Crystal Palace and Liverpool :
1. Mohamed Salah :
The Egyptian International is a real threat for the opponents on his day. In fact the trio of Liverpool in the attacking third are any day going to destroy any kind of defense. In the previous match against West Ham United, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane both scored and Roberto Firmino has provided an assist in that match for Liverpool. In this match also there is a chance for Mohamed Salah to prove his worth one again in Liverpool colours. The Golden Boot winner of previous season will definitely wish to keep his goal scoring record intact. But one thing we can say that, the job will not be very easy for the Egyptian International to ease past the defenders of Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
2. Alisson :
Alisson will be the other player to watch out for Liverpool fans in this match. The Brazilian National side’s Goalkeeper has come to Liverpool from AS Roma to prove his potential in the Premier League. Alisson is one of the best Goalkeepers in European football circuit if we consider the current form. It will be a big test for the Brazilian Goalkeeper to prove his worth in Liverpool colours in this match. Liverpool’s away record against Crystal Palace is not very good and they will try to win this match to be at par with Chelsea and Manchester City. The point loss in these sorts of matches become very much crucial at some point of time in the title race. So, Jurgen Klopp will surely keep his players aware of that fact ahead of this match.
3. Wilfried Zaha :
The Crystal Palace winger is one of the best performers for Crystal Palace in recent matches. He has also scored the winning Goal for Crystal Palace in the previous match against Fulham. The pace and power of his shot are clearly unmatchable for other players. The Ivory Coast International will be a great threat for the Liverpool defense in this match. Liverpool will surely try to nullify the threat caused by their main man Wilfried Zaha. The young winger has the potential to show his sparks in such big games. Wilfried Zaha’s experience of playing in Premier League for last few seasons will surely help him to prepare himself for these sorts of big matches.
