Crystal Palace Struggling for Goals

Roy Hodgson rightly received praise for transforming Crystal Palace last season when he replaced Patrick Vieira, with Crystal Palace soaring clear of relegation trouble while playing some exciting football.

They then started the new campaign well, with just one defeat in five in all competitions, but the wheels have since come off and Palace now sits 14th in the standings.

They are without a win in four games and have won just one of their last eight fixtures, adding some pressure on Eagles boss Roy Hodgson.

A spate of untimely injury problems have not helped the hosts’ cause in recent weeks, but fuel is constantly being added to the fire surrounding Hodgson’s future, especially with Steve Cooper believed to be on the brink of the Nottingham Forest sack.

Cheick Doucoure is confirmed to have ruptured his Achilles tendon and is at risk of missing the rest of the season. Jesurun Rak-Sakyi, Rob Holding, Dean Henderson and Eberechi Eze are keeping Doucoure and Tyrick Mitchell company in the treatment room.

 

Liverpool Scoring Goals for Fun

Having finished outside the top four last term, most Premier League betting fans doubted if Liverpool would be challengers this season after Jurgen Klopp completely revamped his midfield in the summer.

But the team has only lost once in the Premier League all season, and even that defeat was hugely controversial as they lost 2-1 at Spurs with nine men after VAR had wrongly ruled out a goal for Klopp’s side.

The Reds are second in the table, just two points adrift of leaders Arsenal, and they head to south London seeking to extend their unbeaten run in the league to nine matches.

Trent Alexander-Arnold was Liverpool’s hero last weekend against Fulham and is always a threat with set-pieces and his long-range shooting. He is the best choice to include in your Premier League player props.

Liverpool remains without the services of Andrew Robertson and Thiago Alcantara, who are both out until January, while Diogo Jota is not expected back until later this month. Alexis Mac Allister limped off in the second half of the Reds’ 2-0 win at Sheffield United on Wednesday and is a doubt.

 

Bet on Liverpool’s Solid Record Against Palace

Since losing to Manchester City in April, Liverpool has won more Premier League points than any other side in the top-flight league.

Crystal Palace’s attacking woes have been particularly prevalent at home where they’ve failed to score in four of their seven home matches. Liverpool won 12 of their previous 14 head-to-heads against Crystal Palace.

This fixture has brought only misery for Crystal Palace in recent seasons, including a 7-0 battering at Selhurst Park three years ago. Liverpool has the second-best attack in the league with 34 goals scored in 15 games.

Crystal Palace vs Liverpool Soccer Betting Picks for Dec. 9

Liverpool enters this clash as favorites, priced at -190 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Premier League odds, while the goal line is set at three.

Liverpool is on the road again and will fancy their chances against a Crystal Palace side in wretched form, with just one win in their last eight games. The Reds should have enough quality in their ranks to see them edge to victory and keep pace in the Premier League title race.

Both teams’ treatment rooms are slowly welcoming more injury victims, but while Liverpool has plenty options to replace their injured players, Palace’s bench is not that competitive.

Premier League Pick: Liverpool -1 (-118)

 

 

Questions Of The Day

Which Liverpool player is most likely to score the 1st goal of the match against Crystal Palace?


Darwin Nunez started on the bench for Liverpool in midweek but should return to the lead the line here. The Uruguayan has gone four games without scoring so could be due a goal here.

What Crystal Palace players are most likely to pick up assists against Liverpool?


Only bottom-placed Sheffield United has scored fewer goals than Crystal Palace this term and given the injury issues they are dealing with, it will be very difficult for the Eagles to find the back of the net.
