Michael Owen reveals his prediction for crystal palace vs Liverpool Fc
Michael Owen is Tipping Liverpool to win despite facing an “always dangerous” Crystal Palace side at Selhurst Park.
Liverpool FC closed the gap slightly on league leaders Manchester City last weekend thanks to a 3-1 victory over Brentford at Anfield with goals from Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Takumi Minamino.
Former Liverpool striker Owen is predicting that Liverpool FC will record a 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon.
“Palace have conceded a few late equalisers this season, and they conceded another one against Brighton last week,” Owen told BetVictor.
“Palace are sitting in a mid-table position, but they could be so much higher, which must be frustrating for Vieira.
“No Mane, no Salah, no problem for Liverpool last week against Brentford. I said other players would have to step up, and they did. Oxlade-Chamberlain was excellent, and Jota was a threat throughout.
“It’s not going to be easy without those two, but they showed they have enough to still beat the teams they are favoured against.
“I can see Palace getting a goal, they are always dangerous at home. I think Liverpool will win though, 3-1.”
Liverpool FC were 7-0 winners against Crystal Palace in their last trip to Selhurst Park before Jurgen Klopp saw the reds title challenge implode due to a defensive crisis.
Christian Benteke has netted six times against his former employers since Liverpool FC sold the Belgium international following a disappointing stint at Anfield.
Liverpool FC squandered points in each of their last Premier League fixtures on the road.
