Team News

Crystal Palace
Palace trio Wilfried Zaha, Jordan Ayew and Cheikhou Kouyate have been busy at the Africa Cup of Nations in recent weeks, but Ayew may be in with a chance of returning following Ghana's early elimination.

Vieira has supposedly given Ayew his blessing to take more time off before returning to domestic action, so Michael Olise will expect another start up top as Christian Benteke also pushes for inclusion against his old club.

James Tomkins and James McArthur remain in the treatment room for the Eagles, as Butland prepares to hold his place in between the sticks over Vicente Guaita.
Crystal Palace possible starting lineup:
Butland; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Schlupp, Hughes, Gallagher; Olise, Edouard, Eze

As for Liverpool, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita remain away on AFCON duty, but there is optimism over Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's possible return from an ankle issue sustained against Brentford.

However, Thiago Alcantara, Nat Phillips, Divock Origi and Harvey Elliott - the latter of whom is now back in full training - remain absent for the time being, as Klopp sticks with largely the same formula from the Emirates win.

Kaide Gordon spurned a gilt-edged chance to score against Arsenal in midweek, so the 17-year-old may drop out for the more experienced Takumi Minamino here, and Ibrahima Konate may be considered for a start after Joel Matip looked off the pace in midweek.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold; Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Jones; Jota, Firmino, Minamino
Prediction: Crystal Palace 1-3 Liverpool
