Liverpool vs Crystal Palace is a Premier League fixture that might have increased in its significance over the years as the London outfit has become a hugely unpopular side on Merseyside. The Reds were within touching distance of winning the title back in 2014, however, the south London outfit fought back and denied them the chance to lift it when they secured a 3-3 draw, despite Liverpool being 3-0 up at Selhurst Park.
Liverpool’s history will always put them in favourable positions when contests are played, as they have proven to be serial winners over the years. There has not been a trophy that the Merseyside outfit have not been able to bring back to the iconic 54,074 Anfield Stadium since they were created as a football club.
Crystal Palace do not have the riches that the Reds are able to call upon, neither do they have the sheer quality throughout their playing squad, however they have proven to be more than a match for Liverpool over the years and have caused them some notable problems.
Results at Anfield may generally favour the home club, but the Eagles have a precedent of causing an upset or two when travelling to Merseyside. In 2015, Liverpool lost 1-3 and 1-2, whereas the second result of the two was also recorded in 2017.
Goals are to be expected when the two sides meet as well, with a fixture between the two sides ending 4-3 to the hosts in 2019 as both clubs netted deep into stoppage time.
The encounters between the two sides have been helped in becoming fascinating as a number of stars have been involved, with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Wilfried Zaha, Sadio Mane and Jordan Ayew all playing some role in the fixture.
Liverpool versus Crystal Palace may not be the most appealing fixture on the cards, however, with the unexpected being a real possibility, plus the building rivalry between the two sides because of what the Eagles have been able to achieve, the Anfield tie is one that fans can always look forward to.
