Head-to-head

Crystal Palace could become the first side to win four consecutive top-flight games at Anfield since Arsenal in December 1935.

Liverpool
Liverpool have won their opening Premier League home game in each of the last four seasons.
The Reds conceded as many goals in last weekend's 3-3 draw at Watford as they had in their previous seven league fixtures combined.
They have conceded 27 league goals from set pieces (excluding penalties) since Jurgen Klopp took charge - only Palace and Watford, with 28, have a worse record in that time.

Crystal Palace
Palace's 3-0 defeat by Huddersfield was their heaviest opening-day defeat since losing 6-1 to Liverpool at Selhurst Park in August 1994.
They have lost five of their last six Premier League matches, failing to score in each of those defeats.
Jurgen Klopp last faced Frank de Boer when his Dortmund side beat Ajax home and away in the 2012-13 Champions League group stage.
Christian Benteke has five goals in his past three Premier League games at Anfield for the away side - he only scored four goals there for Liverpool.

Wasn't amazing but job done and now we can go full strength against Hoffenheim. Desperately need a lallana/coutinho in that midfield 3 though, without one there's not a lot of creativity.

Hopefully we play Firmino in that role now that Sturridge is back. Salah and Mane either side.

Yeah think that'll happen with Sturridge the game changer on the bench. Can will come in too I imagine for one of Milner and Gini.

With Coutinho and Lallana both out I'd like to see Can and Henderson in midfield with Firmino ahead of them and Salah and Mane either side. I think at home we'd rip them apart with that.

With Sturridge up front.

Bloody Spartek Moscow doing Moscow doing me out of over £500 as I write this. Did four teams both teams to score and win and they were the last 2-1 up. Bloody scored again as I write this to take it to 4-3 after going down 4-2 only seconds ago. Like an amateur league match so far.

I'm not sure how Firmino would do in the midfield, he's more a striker, he took the number 9 for a reason.

Yeah, I don't see Firmino playing behind the striker. For me he is a striker.

False 9....

For me he'd work well in a 4-2-3-1 behind the striker.

Don't get me wrong, he's outstanding leading the line against the better teams. They hate when teams play in front of them on the edge of the box which allows the wingers to push up either side when they are exposed after an attack. That doesn't happen in the majority of games however.
