Liverpool vs Crystal Palace predicted XIs:
Diogo Jota has a slim chance of returning to action but would only be named on the bench if so. Jurgen Klopp is likely to name an unchanged XI from that which beat Burnley. Christian Benteke is a doubt to face his former club and may not be risked ahead of the European Championships. Luka Milivojevic could return for the Eagles.
- Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Williams, Phillips, Robertson; Thiago, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane.
- Crystal Palace: Guaita; Ward, Tomkins, Cahill, Van-Aanholt; Kouyate, Milivojevic, Schlupp; Townsend, Ayew, Zaha.
Can Salah win third Golden Boot to secure UCL football?
Given their wretched run across January and February, coupled with an overflowing injury list (especially at centre-back), it’s remarkable that Liverpool even have a chance of securing Champions League football. As it happens, their fate is now entirely in their own hands. Win here and Leicester would need to beat Spurs and better Liverpool’s scoreline by at least four goals to overhaul them on the final day.
But the latter part of that equation might prove impossible for the Foxes. Liverpool ran riot the last time they faced Palace, beating the Eagles 7-0 at Selhurst Park just before Christmas, prior to their winter collapse. Mohamed Salah helped himself to two late goals that afternoon, with the Egyptian extending his tally to 22 since then.
That leaves Salah level at the top of the Golden Boot standings alongside Harry Kane, four clear of Bruno Fernandes, meaning we have a straight shootout between the two for this season’s award.
In his last eight Premier League appearances, Salah has managed five goals and an assist, so heads into this final-day encounter in good form. If he can repeat that Selhurst Park performance, he should be good to secure his third Premier League Golden Boot, simultaneously keeping Liverpool dining at Europe’s top table again next season.
