Liverpool face traditional bogey team Crystal Palace on Sunday with a fair bit of momentum hopefully pushing them forward. With the return of Adam Lallana to training and decisive victories against West Brom and Stoke behind them, the squad should be buoyed by a fair bit of optimism today. Not to mention the absence of Mamadou Sakho and his baggage for Palace, the only concerns should be which defensive options are available to Klopp. Crystal Palace have been no easy train to stop, though, since procuring the French defender on loan from Liverpool, as they’ve managed to defeat current league leaders Chelsea and draw with current champions Leicester. Look for this one to be ugly and disappointing at worst or ugly and slightly more satisfying at best.
