Paul Merson has given his prediction for the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Liverpool.
The Eagles are currently sitting in 11th place in the league table with 24 points. Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp’s side are 2nd, 11 points behind the leaders Manchester City.
Merson believes that it would be a decisive game for the Reds in the Premier League title race. Despite the Reds’ good form, he still thinks the two sdies will share points at Selhurst Park Stadium.
“Both teams will be hoping to have a successful match at the weekend, while Merson believes that they will share points at Selhurst Park Stadium,” the pundit said on Sportskeeda.
“This is a hard match for Liverpool. This could be the Premier League game that bites them. They have a big cup game against Arsenal tonight – if they go and drop points against Crystal Palace, that would be it. If they don’t win on Sunday, they’ll be in trouble in the Premier League title race.
“I thought Palace were terrible against Brighton, but they’re a good team. They’re having an impressive season under Vieira and they’ll cause Liverpool a few problems. Liverpool will have to do without Mane and Salah this weekend and Crystal Palace could hold them to a draw.”
Paul Merson’s prediction: Crystal Palace 1-1 Liverpool
