Palace showed real determination to fight back for a point against Spurs the last time they were at home, but you would expect Liverpool to play a more expansive game at Selhurst than Jose Mourinho did.
If Palace show the same dogged determination, they could make life really difficult for Klopp’s team – but you’d bank on Liverpool leaving with three points.
