Crystal Palace 1 – 1 Liverpool: William Hill 15/2    

Roy Hodgson’s men got their Premier League season off to a good start last weekend, beating promoted West London rivals Fulham, 2-1.

The most notable attacking performances came from Palace’s full backs Patrick van Aanholt and the mightily impressive 20-year-old Aaron Wan Bissaka.  We’ll be looking at whether they can put in the same kind of performance against last season’s Champions League finalists.

Can Palace’s solid defence keep out Liverpool?

Whilst many were praising Palace’s full backs last weekend, the two other men in their back four have been quietly going about their business, wracking up a very impressive defensive record.  

James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakho have not lost in 13 Premier league encounters whilst paired at the heart of Palace’s defence.  They are also unbeaten in seven top flight competitive matches either side of the season’s summer break.  

This fixture will be a stern test of their defensive record as between them, Liverpool’s front trio of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino have notched up more goals than any other attacking line up this year.

Benteke with a point to prove?

After a torrid season at Liverpool in 2015/16, Palace’s number 9 Christian Benteke made his move to Palace with many thinking he was just not the right fit for Jurgen Klopp’s side.  However he failed to shine for Palace last season, only finding the net 3 times in 30 games.

However, Benteke’s form during pre-season has been much improved and he looked sharp last weekend at Fulham, playing a major role in most of their attacks.  Could Benteke prove a point to his former boss on Monday night and grab a goal?  Check out our free betting tips for the anytime scorer odds.
