CRYSTAL PALACE VS. LIVERPOOL
| Saturday, December 19th |
Premier League | Selhurst Park
12:30PM GMT/ 7:30AM EST
Surprisingly, when playing the team full of former Liverpool players include Christian Benteke, Martin Kelly, Mamadou Sakho and, of course, boss Roy Hodgson himself, through a combination of injuries and suspensions, the Reds are unlikely to face any of them on the pitch. It will be another quiet affair in London this afternoon when Liverpool head to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace. With the capital in tier three of lockdown, no fans are permitted in the stadium. This will be their final pre-Christmas match before they get a breather until after the holiday. Hopefully that week-and-change will be enough time to see the return of a few from injury. Today, they still have to get past Palace, so hopefully we’ll see a performance like the one against Spurs instead of the one against Fulham.
