Crystal Palace’s form following the turn of the year has been simply atrocious and from challenging for a place in Europe, the Eagles now face the danger of being involved in a battle against relegation before too long.

Palace now have a host of tough matches coming up within the next few weeks and manager Alan Pardew recently admitted that his side could be dragged into the relegation mire if things do not improve soon.

Therefore, it will be of paramount importance for Palace to claim a good result when Liverpool pay a visit this weekend but doing so will be anything but straightforward. Jason Puncheon, James McArthur and Kwesi Appiah are the injury concerns ahead of the game for Palace.

While such resounding victories are most certainly welcome for the fans, Liverpool need to bring about more consistency into their game and manager Jurgen Klopp will surely be urging his players to avoid their habit of losing against Crystal Palace this weekend.

Lucas Leiva, Daniel Sturridge and Mamadou Sakho are rated as doubts ahead of the game while the likes of Danny Ings, Joe Gomez and Jordan Rossiter remain ruled out.

The match will be a close encounter and Palace should just about be able to claim a point on the day.
