Unbeaten after 4 games played, the only blot on Liverpool’s record is the 1-1 draw against 10-men Chelsea 2 weeks ago.

They have always had a rough patch versus Crystal Palace since they lost the title in a 3-3 draw 5 years ago against the Eagles.

But it seems that Klopp has overcome the mental block as he has led Liverpool to 9 wins in a row against their next visitors, with 3 clean sheets on the trot too.

They are also on a 7-game unbeaten run at the moment, having scored first in 6 of them.It’s been 18 games without a clean sheet for Crystal Palace against the Reds.

Patrick Vieira’s arrival has brought a glimpse of hope, and it showed in the win over Spurs last weekend. But what hasn’t changed at Selhurst Park is the defending woes, which have led to Crystal Palace seeing over 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 8 games.

4 of the last 5 meetings with Liverpool have also led to over 2.5 goals being conceded for Vieira’s men.
