Liverpool will be hoping for a win to take them up to 7th in the Premier League table as they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The reds have not endured a fantastic record against the Eagles in recent times, and gave Klopp his first Anfield defeat back in November in a 2-1 victory.  Bolasie and Dann scoring either side of a Coutinho equaliser that day.  Mignolet at fault for Palace's winning goal when he failed to hold on to a cross.

Fresh from the midweek victory over Man City at Anfield the reds return to London one week after their League Cup final defeat on penalties.


Mamadou Sakho returns after suffering a head injury in the cup final - replacing Kolo Toure - whilst Alberto Moreno comes in to replace Nathaniel Clyne.

Daniel Sturridge returns to the matchday squad - a place on the bench awaits him.
