Liverpool will look to continue their procession to the Premier League title as they entertain Crystal Palace at Anfield on Wednesday.

The Reds have amassed a staggering 20 point lead at the table’s summit, needing just 5 points from their remaining 8 games for a first league crown since 1990.

Visitors Crystal Palace meanwhile deserve credit for their application this season, with former Liverpool gaffer Roy Hodgson ensuring his Eagles side remain a top flight club after many were questioning their credentials to do so.

Palace take the trip to Anfield just 4 points off 5th spot, and with an outside chance of Champions League qualification depending on the outcome of Manchester City’s court case with UEFA.

Liverpool meanwhile are off the back of a 0-0 Merseyside derby draw against Everton, a lacklustre game which saw their cross-city rivals enjoy the better of the chances.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his players can pick up 3 of the 5 points needed for Premier League glory against Crystal Palace, but he may have to do without several senior players.

Mohamed Salah didn’t feature against Everton due to a knock, with Takumi Minamino favoured instead – it’s uncertain whether the Egyptian will play against the Eagles.

Andy Robertson missed Sunday’s derby entirely through injury too, and isn’t likely to be in contention against Crystal Palace.

Midfielder James Milner and defender Joel Matip both succumbed to problems of their own against Everton, and had to be withdrawn.

Long term absentees Xherdan Shaqiri and Nathaniel Clyne won’t be involved.

Crystal Palace were hoping Jeff Schlupp, James Tomkins and Martin Kelly would have recovered in time to face Liverpool, but the trio won’t make the trip to Anfield.

Thankfully for gaffer Roy Hodgson, the rest of his players managed to come through the 2-0 victory over Bournemouth unscathed.

Liverpool v Crystal Palace at Anfield is an 8.15pm kick off on Wednesday, June 24.
