Liverpool vs Crystal Palace preview: kick-off, team news, TV channel

Jurgen Klopp will be looking for a positive response from his players, after their awful showing at Anfield on Thursday night, when the Reds welcome Crystal Palace to Anfield on Sunday.

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, will be looking for a much-improved performance from his Liverpool players on Sunday, when Liverpool welcomes Crystal Palace to Anfield in the Premier League.  Last time out, the Reds suffered a shock 3 - 0 loss to Atalanta, to leave their Europa League dreams hanging by a thread, and Klopp will be desperate for Liverpool to clean a clean sheet and find their scoring boots again.

Match Preview

  • Date: Sunday, 14th of April 2024
  • Kick-off: 14:00 GMT
  • Venue: Anfield
  • Competition: Premier League
  • Referee: Chris Kavanagh
  • Assistant Referees: Simon Bennett & Dan Robathan
  • Fourth Official: Keith Stroud
  • VAR: Michael Oliver
  • Assistant VAR: Stuart Burt

How to watch or listen to the match

The game is being shown live in the UK on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League.  The program begins at 13:00 (GMT).

Radio commentary will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live. Updates and match reports will also be available throughout the evening on TalkSport.

Team News

Jurgen Klopp made six changes for the midweek game against Atalanta, but Harvey Elliott and Cody Gakpo aside, none of the players brought in helped the team, as the Reds produced one of their worst performances under Klopp.  The Liverpool manager must therefore play his strongest XI against Crystal Palace, as the Reds cannot afford another bad performance.  Diogo Jota and Trent Alexander-Arnold will be given game time (as they look to build their fitness), but neither will probably start the match.

Crystal Palace:
Crystal Palace manager Oliver Glasner could be without eight first-team players for the trip to Anfield, with Palace in the middle of their own injury crisis, but striker Michael Olise should be available for the visitors.

Predicted Liverpool Lineup

Jurgen Klopp will stick with his preferred 4-3-3 formation.

Kelleher, Bradley, Van Dijk (C), Konate, Robertson, Endo, Mac Allister, Szoboszlai, Diaz, Nunez, Salah

Liverpool needs to win to keep up the pressure on Arsenal and Manchester City, so all their big stars must start the match, despite the fact many of them have been out of sorts in the last couple of weeks.  Hopefully, Salah, Diaz, and Nunez will find their shooting boots, while at the other end, Van Dijk, Konate, Robertson, and Bradley desperately need a clean sheet to boost their confidence.

LFC - Back On Our Perch Score Prediction

I have been pretty awful with my score predictions recently, so I'm going for a conservative 2 - 0 to the Reds on Sunday.  I think it could be another long, nervous afternoon for the fans, but an early goal would settle Liverpool's nerves, and make the afternoon a lot more enjoyable.

Lifelong fan with a passion for all things Liverpool. First memory of football is watching John Barnes score a dramatic last minute equaliser in the FA Cup when he was 4. Feels lucky to be a part of the 'Klopp' era.
