Crystal Palace are due to face off against Liverpool in a Premier League clash at Selhurst Park on Saturday.

The Eagles will go into the game against the top of the table club as the firm underdogs.

Upsets do however happen in football. Roy Hodgson’s Palace side must aim to play positive football and will have nothing really to lose.

In good news for the Eagles, Wilfried Zaha and defender Joel Ward have been declared fit to play during the game, according to a report which was published by Sky Sports.

The Ivorian sustained a foot injury whilst in action during Palace’s 2-0 defeat against Chelsea while Ward sustained a groin injury during the same game.

Liverpool have outplayed Palace during recent games between the sides with the Eagles having lost six out of their last seven Premier League games against the Reds.

They have also lost their last four top-flight games in a row against the Merseysiders.

Liverpool are also unbeaten during their last seven league games in London.

The last time that they lost in the English capital was during a defeat against Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side in May 2018.

Palace will be hoping to end a poor run of form which has seen them lose three out of their last four Premier League games.

Christian Benteke, if called upon, will be looking to make an impact against his former side.
