Liverpool take on Crystal Palace on in a weekend Premier League clash at Anfield on Sunday, 8 November.

Where to watch

Kick-off is set for 4pm GMT. Catch the highlights of the match on Match of the Day 2 on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:30pm GMT.


Liverpool come into this fixture after a 1-0 victory over Rubin Kazan in the midweek Europa League clash. Jordan Ibe's second half strike was the difference between the two sides in the European fixture. The Reds have enjoyed an unbeaten run in all competitions since Jurgen Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers in October. Liverpool will be looking for a fourth consecutive win when they face the London outfit on Sunday.

Palace, on the other hand, come into the fixture after a 0-0 draw against Manchester United. The Eagles dominated when they faced Louis van Gaal's side at Selhurst Park and Alan Pardew will be hoping his side can put up a similar performance when they face Liverpool.

What Managers Say

Jurgen Klopp: "I knew all about it, I've been watching English football since you can watch it in Germany. It's something of a myth [legend] always, there is a situation in the six yard box with the goalkeeper and there's no foul – why? It's a foul! It's a bit of a myth in Germany. You can play harder in England, I don't really understand this."

Alan Pardew: "I thought in the summer that they have a top-four squad and that has not changed despite the change in manager. They are Liverpool and they should be top four. I think Christian Benteke is a terrific player and Klopp has arrived with great players there."
