Liverpool host Crystal Palace as they return to Anfield in mid-week Premier League action on Wednesday evening.

Liverpool are set to see the return of Andy Robertson and Mohamed Salah who were not fit for their return clash against Everton which finished in a goalless draw.

Roy Hodgson’s men have performed well since the restart and extended their win streak to three games following a 2-0 win over Bournemouth at the weekend.

1min: First minute and Mamadou Sakho decides to pull off a Cruyff turn in the Palace penalty area. Former Liverpool defender having a bit of fun there.

And Liverpool get us started.

You’ll Never Walk Alone being pumped out by the PA system at Anfield. Usually a capacity crowd would be belting every word out. Each time you watch a match now it brings it all back just how strange these times are.

Klopp said: ‘People make a big mistake in underestimating the influence of Mo Salah. It’s not just the goals he scores, he makes the pitch bigger for us. It makes it easier for other players. Palace are brilliantly organised.

‘When I was a young coach, I had videos from my former coach who was my mentor, to learn more about football. Most of them were about Arrigo Sacchi, but the others were of Roy, when he was working for Switzerland. I just told him and he liked it!’

Teams are out and we’re almost ready to go at Anfield.

Well it was half expected that the title would be wrapped up by tonight or at least Liverpool would have had a chance to win it against Palace. But we know that can’t happen. Even if Liverpool do win this evening Manchester City would need to fail to win for Jurgen Klopp’s side to be crowned champions this week.

Klopp’s side – as have many others since the restart – have shown a rustiness and it will be interesting to see whether they have sharpened since the draw against Everton.

Palace, meanwhile, are brimming with confidence and arrive at Anfield with every hope of beating the champions elect.
