Liverpool v Crystal Palace Match Preview & Trends

Hodgson says farewell on his return to Anfield as Reds need 3 points

Roy Hodgson announced this week that he would be stepping down as Crystal Palace manager at the end of the season. It is fitting that his final game in charge is at Anfield against one of his former clubs. Jurgen Klopp will offer no sentiment as he prepares his side for Champions League qualification. Liverpool are up against Leicester and Chelsea in the race for the top-4 and any slip-ups and dropped points will be catastrophic in the final game of the campaign.

Liverpool have scored in each of their last 9 matches and not lost any of these fixtures. The reds have scored 2 goals or more in each of their last 4 matches and 31% of Liverpool’s conceded goals occurred after the 75th minute. If Klopp’s men win, they would increase their lead over Crystal Palace to 25 points in the league table, and it would be Liverpool’s 5th consecutive win and 10th match in a row without defeat.

Palace have conceded 2 goals or more in each of their last 3 matches so will be wary of the the attacking threat their opponents possess. Crystal Palace have scored in each of their last 6 away matches and there have been fewer than four cards in each of the last 5 games involving The Eagles. Palace’s average goals conceded per match away is 1.71 whilst Roy Hodgson’s men have averaged 1.18 goals scored per match fixture away from Selhurst Park.

Key trends

Liverpool have picked up an average of 1.67 Points Per Game in their 18 matches played at home

Crystal Palace’s average Points Per Game in their 18 away games is 1.17.

Liverpool have won their last 4 matches.
