New league leaders Liverpool will be looking to extend their lead in the Premier League this weekend. The side travels to London at Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 3:30 pm.
The Eagles have only one win in their last five league games, but face a Liverpool side struggling on the road this season.
It might have taken some time, but Liverpool took control of the table in their midweek clash with Tottenham. The Reds were dominant in the first half with some clear cut chances not converted.
Mohamad Salah opened the scoring account with a deflection from Dier that eased past Lloris. Son responded with a controversial goal that many thoughts were offside. It was in the dying minutes when Mourinho looked settled with a draw when Firmino headed the winning goal of the night.
The Reds have not gone six away league games without winning since January 2011 and could draw five in a row for the first time since December 1991. However, the side has only one away win in their last six outings.
Inconsistency continues to be a major headache for Roy Hodgson with two wins, two draws and two defeats in their last six outings. Their 1-1 draw to West Ham marked 12 games without a clean sheet and only one in their last 21 top-flight outings.
