Liverpool’s big 3-0 win over Manchester City at home at Anfield during the week means they still have a legitimate shot at a fourth-place finish this year in the Premier League, which means a berth in the European Champions League. They’ll be traveling down to London this Sunday, March 6 to Selhurst Park to take on a disappointing Crystal Palace side that has slid down the standings. Palace is heading into this important match after playing to a 2-2 road draw against lowly Sunderland on Tuesday night.

They currently sit nine points above the relegation zone. At home, Palace has just four victories to go along with two draws and eight losses with 15 goals for and 19 against. The side has four clean sheets at home and has been shut out five times. Overall, they’ve recorded six clean sheets and have failed to score on 10 occasions. Palace has just a win, a draw and four defeats in their past half dozen home outings.

Liverpool has six away victories to go along with three draws and five defeats with 22 goals scored and 19 conceded. The Reds have kept five clean sheets on the road and have been shut out six times. Overall, they’ve shut out the opposition on nine occasions and have failed to score eight times themselves. The Merseysiders have three wins and three losses in their past six away encounters.
Palace is winless in their past 11 league matches and have lost four in a row at Selhurst Park. They need to improve quickly or could soon find themselves hovering near the relegation zone. Liverpool has been inconsistent all season long and can’t afford to drop many more points id they hope to reach the top four by season’s end. They’re also alive in the current Europa League season and face arch-rivals Manchester United in a two-legged tie. The Reds blew a chance at a piece of silverware last weekend when they were beaten by Man City in a penalty shootout in the League Cup Final at Wembley.
