Can Crystal Palace be the first team to silence the Kop under Klopp?

Having faced Man United, Man City (League Cup), Leicester and West Ham in last four fixtures Crystal Palace are now travel to Anfield to face a rejuvenate Liverpool on this Sunday.

It won’t be an easy task, but the Eagles outplayed the 10-times English champions Manchester United last weekend.

It is clear that how Liverpool have struggled against Alan Pardew’s side in the past and if they can get the formula right on this Sunday.

Liverpool’s trip to Russia for Europa League Group stage match against Rubin Kazan on Thursday could ruin them and the Eagles can take full advantage when they return to Premier League action to meet Palace.

Crystal Palace need to win this weekend game if they want to get in the top four spots.

Having pacy full-backs and superb wingers would be a bonus. It is expected Palace would take advantage of Reds’ trip to Russia but there are no easy games anymore in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie is looking forward to face Liverpool after his side drew 0-0 with Manchester United at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Congolese midfielder is now anticipating for another high profile game next weekend, he told the club’s official website: “It’s going to be a tough game up there, but if we start the way we did [against United], then I think we’ve got a chance.”

Crystal Palace will be hopeful of causing trouble for Klopp’s defence, and confident of taking six points from their next two encounters at home to relegation-threatened Sunderland and Newcastle United.

Palace have won two and lost three of their last five league games, and their manager Pardew will be fully aware that a failure to could see his side slide down the league table.

Palace expected starting lineup: Hennessey; Kelly, Hangeland, Dann, Ward; McArthur, Jedinak; Zaha, Puncheon, Sako, Bolasie.
