Crystal Palace vs Liverpool: how and where to watch - times, TV, online
All the information you need to know on how and where to watch Crystal Palace host Liverpool at Selhurst Park (London) on 19 December at 13:30 CET.
Crystal Palace will host Premier League champions Liverpool, who now top this season's table, at Selhurst Park on Saturday in their last game before Christmas.
The hosts will try to get a positive result before the break, as they have only won one of their last five league games. Now they are facing a team that don’t seem to be at their best even though they moved to the head of the standings after beating previous leaders Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 on Wednesday.
Liverpool need to improve away
But Jürgen Klopp’s men will probably want to improve their stats on the road, as they have not gone six away league games without winning since January 2011 and could draw five in a row for the first time since 1991.
Actually, Liverpool have won all their seven home games this season, while their numbers are quite different away. If previous matches before the current season are taken into consideration, the team have just achieved three wins, four defeats and five draws in their last 12 away outings, having won 16 and lost none of their previous 17 before that.
Benteke out for the hosts
Crystal Palace, with one win and two draws in their last three games, will try to upset Klopp’s men without Connor Wickham, Wayne Hennessy and Nathan Ferguson, who remain sidelined.
Christian Benteke will also miss out due to suspension, while former Liverpool players Mamadou Sakho and Martin Kelly could also be unavailable through injury.
Gary Cahill, Jeffrey Schlupp and Jordan Ayew could come back into action, while Nathaniel Clyne could be in line to play against his former club.
🗣 Roy on Benteke: "We’ve been pleased with Christian since he’s been back. Liverpool wouldn't have wanted to play him, especially with the form he’s been in."#CPFC | #CRYLIV pic.twitter.com/kb3qAoU1VU— Crystal Palace F.C. (@CPFC) December 18, 2020
Too early for Alcántara
As for Liverpool, Thiago Alcántara seems to be getting back to fitness, although the match comes to soon for him to come back, while Klopp won’t be able to call upon the services of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Diogo Jota, Kostas Tsimikas, Xherdan Shaqiri and James Milner.
Joel Matip, who didn’t play against Spurs after being taken off at half time against Fulham due to back spasms, may replace Rhys Williams in the defence line.
Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Neco Williams will be hoping to get a spot in the starting XI. Sadio Mané has scored in his last six league games against Palace, while Mohamed Salah will also feature from the start.
