Liverpool vs Crystal Palace Betting Tips & English Premier League Picks
The Premier League title race was stepped up a gear last time out, as Liverpool took a vice-like grip on the crown.
Their win opened up a nine-point gap at the top of the table, and they could extend that to 12 with another big win this weekend away at Crystal Palace.
But, the Eagles are a decent side this season and may have ideas of their own. Our Liverpool vs Crystal Palace Betting Tips looks at the form from both teams.
Crystal Palace Form
Crystal Palace had enjoyed an excellent start to the season, but their form has nosedived over recent weeks. They are falling dangerously close to the relegation places.
At present, they are 12th, but only three points separate themselves and the 17th-placed Aston Villa. Fortunately for the Eagles, the three sides in the relegation places are in poor form.
It would take a capitulation for Roy Hodgson’s side to fall closer to that position. They haven’t won in their last four, and during this run, they have lost three times.
They did play well on their last outing in the Premier League, but Chelsea were relentless at trying to break down their opponents.
Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic scored the goals for the Blues. Palace will have to play much better to get anything from the league leaders.
Liverpool have been relentless this season, and they are already looking every inch like Premier League champions. They have only slipped up once this season, with that ending in a draw at Old Trafford.
Aside from that, they have remained unbeaten and won eleven of their 12 Premier League fixtures this season. They have scored the third-highest amount of goals and conceded the third-lowest.
Their win last time out against Manchester City has seen a gap of nine-points open up, and Liverpool were deserved winners in that clash.
The Reds goals were scored by Fabinho, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah. A win here would open up a massive 12-point gap before City’s fixture with Chelsea.
Liverpool vs Crystal Palace Head-to-Head
Liverpool holds a clear advantage in the overall record between the two sides as they have won on 29 occasions.
Palace have recorded 14 wins, and there have been eleven draws. The Reds have won the last four in the Premier League against the Eagles, with Palace’s last win coming at Anfield in 2017.
The most famous fixture between these two sides was the 3-3 draw in 2014, which ensured Liverpool lost the control of the title race in that particular season.

Liverpool vs Crystal Palace Betting Tips
This could be a potential banana skin for the Reds, but on their current form, it is difficult to see them dropping any more points at this moment in time.
Even if Salah doesn’t play a part, Liverpool should still get the win.
