Crystal Palace v Liverpool: Odds, predictions, team news & more

Liverpool stayed just two points off the Premier League summit with Wednesday's win over Sheffield United and they have the chance to go top, at least for a few hours, when they visit Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Merseysiders have won three games on the spin in all competitions, whereas Palace have hit a poor run of form, piling pressure on manager Roy Hodgson.

Ahead of Saturday's encounter at Selhurst Park, we have assembled a 9/1 Bet Builder for the match.

Crystal Palace v Liverpool Bet Builder

Half with most goals - Second half - 1/1
Mohamed Salah to score last - 15/4

Bet Builder - 9/1

Liverpool to win - 1/2

After the chaos of last Sunday's 4-3 win over Fulham, Liverpool were resolute in Wednesday night's 2-0 win at Sheffield United, spoiling the return of Blades boss Chris Wilder.

That was the club's third win on the spin and their fourth in five games and they should have few issues posting maximum points again at Selhurst Park.

Home is where the heart is has been the theme for Liverpool this season, but they have shown signs of improvement on the road, taking a point off Manchester City before the midweek win in Sheffield.

And their Saturday lunchtime opponents Palace are weakened by player absences with Tyrick Mitchell having joined Cheick Doucoure, Eberechi Eze, Rob Holding, Dean Henderson and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi in the treatment room.

They have gone four games without a win and should be opposed against the rampant Reds.

Half with most goals - Second half - 1/1

Liverpool should justify favouritism against Palace on Saturday, but they could take time to break down the Eagles and punters should back the second half to be the highest scoring as part of this Bet Builder.

No Premier League side have performed better in the second half this season than Liverpool, who would have accrued 35 points from 15 matches if only the post-interval action counted.

As for Palace, only three of their 14 Premier League strikes this season came before the break and this could be a slow burner.

Mohamed Salah to score last - 15/4

Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah may not have scored against the Blades on Wednesday, but he was a lively presence, managing four shots in the game - two of which were on target.

The Egyptian ace can, however, add to his tally of 10 Premier League goals this weekend.

Salah is averaging a goal every 129 minutes in the Premier League and his pace and trickery on the flank could be especially dangerous in the latter stages of the match as Palace's stretched defence tires.

The Reds forward has been his team's last goalscorer on three occasions in the Premier League this season - against Aston Villa, Brighton and Nottingham Forest.

With that in mind, complete this Bet Builder by backing Salah to score the last goal of the game.

Crystal Palace team news

Cheick Doucoure could be out for the rest of the season after rupturing his Achilles tendon, while Jesurun Rak-Sakyi, Rob Holding, Dean Henderson and Eberechi Eze also remain sidelined.

Liverpool team news

Alexis Mac Allister picked up a knee injury in midweek and will miss out for the Reds, along with Joel Matip, Alisson, Diogo Jota, Stefan Bajcetic, Thiago Alcantara and Andy Robertson.
