Liverpool v Crystal Palace – BBC Sport

Jordan Henderson (right) scored Liverpool’s winning goal against AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday

TEAM NEWS

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is expected to release an injury update on Roberto Firmino during his press conference later on Friday.

Jordan Henderson could start instead of Harvey Elliott, who had surgery on Leeds on Sunday on a broken and dislocated ankle.

Crystal Palace’s summer signings Odsonne Edouard, Michael Olise and Will Hughes are all pushing for a first start.

Luka Milivojevic came off the bench last week after a four month absence.

LAWROS PREDICTION

Liverpool have had a good week so far with wins against Leeds and AC Milan and I can only see that run continue here.

Crystal Palace got a great result last week when they completely played out Tottenham but I think they will be up and down a bit for a while.

Forecast: 3-0
