Goal Scorer:

Crystal Palace
The Crystal Palace medical bay has a new occupant in the shape of left-back Tyrick Mitchell, who was only on the field for 29 minutes against Bournemouth before coming off with a muscular strain, which will likely render him unavailable for Saturday's game.

The Eagles were already handed the worst possible news over Cheick Doucoure ahead of the loss to Bournemouth, as the Mali midfielder - who has been linked with a switch to Liverpool - is confirmed to have ruptured his Achilles tendon and is at risk of missing the rest of the season.

Jesurun Rak-Sakyi (thigh), Rob Holding (ankle), Dean Henderson (thigh) and the effervescent Eberechi Eze (ankle) are keeping Doucoure and Mitchell company in the treatment room; the latter's place should be filled by ex-Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne.
Crystal Palace possible starting lineup:
Johnstone; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Clyne; Richards, Lerma; Olise, Hughes, Ayew; Edouard

As for the current Liverpool crop, Alexis Mac Allister was a casualty of the win over Sheffield United with a knee injury picked up in the early stages - the Argentinian managed to soldier on in the first half before succumbing to his wound just before the hour mark.

Following Wednesday's victory, Klopp also delivered the crushing news that Joel Matip had suffered an ACL tear and would cruelly miss the rest of the season, while Alisson Becker (thigh), Diogo Jota (muscle), Stefan Bajcetic (calf), Thiago Alcantara (hip) and Andrew Robertson (shoulder) will not return just yet either.

With Mac Allister expected to watch this game from the sidelines too, Ryan Gravenberch ought to be a straight swap in the engine room, allowing Wataru Endo to continue in the number six role.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Kelleher; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Gravenberch, Endo, Szoboszlai; Salah, Nunez, Diaz
Prediction: Crystal Palace 0-2 Liverpool
