Crystal Palace, aiming to build on a fine first season under Patrick Vieira, have been given the toughest start of any team in the Premier League: an opening game against New Arsenal last week, then Liverpool tonight and Manchester City at the end of August. Sure they also have a winnable match at home to Villa on Saturday, but can we please not dwell on that. I’m trying to sell a narrative here!

Point is, nobody gives Palace much chance tonight. If you’re into the whole betting thing, you can get 16/1 on a Palace victory and 6/1 on a draw. Since they had the effrontery to win three consecutive games at Anfield between 2015-17, Palace have lost ten in a row, home and away, against Liverpool.

This fixture looked formidable even before Liverpool started the season with a sloppy, sluggish 2-2 draw at Fulham. A performance like that has consequences. The Liverpool players have had nine days of listening to the people who doubt their commitment to another season of heavy-metal football. The backlash begins at 8pm.

40 minutes Yellow card for Díaz for a foul on Ayew.

39 minutes Here’s that goal from Zaha, which really was a beauty.

38 minutes Doucoure floats high and wide from 25 yards after a decent break from Palace. Moments later, Zaha shoots straight at Alisson from 20 yards. The mood has changed.

36 minutes Alexander-Arnold has two long-range shots in the space of a few seconds, both blocked. The palace defenders must have already blocked seven or eight shots.

36 minutes “Is it me,” says Gary Naylor, “or does Nunez look like young Zlatan?”

I’m not seeing it even.

35 minutes Núñez shoots wide from 25 yards. Apparently, Liverpool have now conceded the first goal in their last six Premier League games. They’ve still won most of them, mind.

34 minutes That goal wasn’t just against the course of the game; he was a complete affront to the course of the game. But it was such a good finish, especially since Alisson is arguably the best in the world in one-on-one.

Ebere Eze did brilliantly at the break. He killed a Palace defensive clearance, deflected elegantly away from Fabinho and opened Liverpool with a through ball behind Phillips. Zaha timed his run to perfection, moved into the box and placed an emphatic low shot over Alisson. What a magnificent goal.

31 minutes I know he’s not the best defender in the world, I know, but Alexander-Arnold’s passing range is unreal.

30 min: Chance for Salah! Alexander-Arnold finds himself in the middle of the field, where he breaks away from Schlupp and launches a delicious pass over the Palace defence. Salah finds him on the run, 10 yards from goal, but he heads straight for Guaita. It was another good opportunity, and a ridiculous ball from Alexander-Arnold. He and Elliott have looked very bright for Liverpool.

28 minutes “Liverpool have had nine attempts in 24 minutes,” says Richard Hirst. “Does Knowledge know the record?”

Is that my new nickname? I guess I’ve had worse.

27 minutes Clyne takes the ball from Elliott in the box. Everything is Liverpool, as always. According to the official Premier League site, Liverpool have had 77 per cent of possession.

24 minutes van Dijk has a pop from 30 yards. He is well hit but off target.

24 minutes “This has 0-1 (Robertson OG, 86′) all over it,” cries Matt Dony.

23 min: Chance for Salah! Alexander-Arnold receives the ball into space on the right. He takes a touch and throws a brilliant low pass to Salah, who spreads his body wide and shoots within a few meters of the near post. It was not the easiest opportunity, but Guaita should have worked.

22 minutes Salah connects to Alexander-Arnold, whose sting from the edge of the area is blocked by Guehi.

21 minutes Alexander-Arnold’s deep cross is forced back by Robertson, under pressure from Clyne, but Ayew gets in front of Nunez to kick the ball.

20 minutes Palace have calmed things down a bit, although the match is still very lopsided.

18 minutes Eze goes through one-on-one before Alisson denies it, even though deep down everyone knew he was out of the game. The flag was raised as soon as Alisson made the save.

17 minutes Robertson makes an excellent run down the field, on a long pass from Milner, and Ward blocks a shot. Diaz picks up the fumble and finally makes room for a shot that also hits Ward before spinning into Guaita’s arms.

15 minutes Núñez runs into space on the right, a long pass from Phillips, and shoots a low cross that Guaita holds up well.

13 minutes Palace are already messing around with goal kicks, prompting some boos from the home crowd.

10 minutes Palace can’t get out of their third, never mind their half.

9 min: Two chances for Liverpool! Elliott got past a couple of defenders on the edge of the box and drove in a low shot that would have gone in had it not been for Andersen’s excellent blocking in the six-yard box. Moments later, Nunez volleyed from a tight angle at the far post.

6 minutes Palace’s 5-4-1 formation already appears to be morphing into a 9-0-1. I don’t think Palace fans would appreciate the juxtaposition of 9 and 0 during a game at Anfield.

5 minutes Liverpool are off to a lively start. Salah moves away from Mitchell to the right and returns the ball to Elliott, whose shot from the edge of the box is blocked by Andersen.

3 minutes “Matip and Konate are injured, and Gomez is still getting fit for the match?!” smell Peter Oh. “That is not good news for the Liverpool defence. Good thing Klopp was able to find a Phillips screwdriver, er, in the toolbox to try to squash Palace’s attack.

2 minutes Milner caught Guaita on his follow up after cutting that shot over the bar, I think he hit his shin, and there is a lull in the game as Guaita gets treatment.

1 min: Chance for Milner! The old man nearly gave Liverpool the lead at 55 seconds. The dangerous center of Alexander-Arnold was deflected with punches by Guaita, pressured by Núñez. Milner pinched Ayew’s loose ball just outside the penalty area, then blasted a left-footed shot over the crossbar.

1 minute peep! Palace gets the game going.

The players enter the field, all with their game faces.. It’s looking a bit gloomy on Merseyside, with something called ‘rain’ in the air.

“Núñez has looked very good so far”, says Brendan Large. “Is this the new front of first choice for Liverpool?”

Yes!

“I have a bad feeling about this (from Liverpool’s point of view),” says Niall Mullen. “And, looking at the other contenders, it seems that if the Reds don’t make a challenge, we could send the First Division trophy to the Etihad before the end of August.”

I expected Liverpool to get off to a terrifyingly fast start, as they did the last time they lost the title to City on the last day of the previous season. I still think they will, despite the little fiasco last week. They are going to win 12-0 next Monday, we already know that.

Thirty years ago today, the Premier League was launched. For richer and poorer, it has dominated our lives ever since. The most famous images have been everywhere in recent days, so our image editors were looking for something a little more original. And they have found some rare gems.

“I’m on your old ground stomping of that there in London and I hope to avoid walking into a Palace supporters pub while wearing my King Kenny/Ken Dodd tribute dual kit,” says Ian Copestake. “It’s best to have a tickle stick to quell any liveliness.”

Patrick Vieira leaves tonight without a recognized center forward. But he may soon have a new toy to play with.

team news

Some interesting selections on both sides. Jurgen Klopp has left out Jordan Henderson, with Harvey Elliott and James Milner preferred in midfield. Nat Phillips, who played so many games in 2020-21, starts at center back. Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate are both injured, while Joe Gomez is only fit enough for the bench. And the record signing Darwin Núñez starts in the lead.

It looks like Patrick Vieira has switched to a back five, with Joel Ward replacing Odsonne Edouard. That is the only change from the Palace team that lost to Arsenal ten days ago.

Liverpool (4-3-3) Allison; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, van Dijk, Robertson; Elliott, Fabinho, Milner; Salah, Nunez, Diaz.
Substitutes: Adrian, Gomez, Tsimikas, Bajcetic, van den Berg, Keita, Henderson, Carvalho, Clark.

Crystal Palace (possible 5-4-1) Guaita; Clyne, Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Ayew, Doucoure, Schlupp, Eze; Zaha.
Substitutes: Johnstone, Richards, Milivojevic, Olise, Hughes, Ebiowei, Plange, Mateta, Edouard.

Referee Paul Tierney.

Preamble

The lamp computer can be a sick turn. Crystal Palace, aiming to build on a strong first season under Patrick Vieira, have had the toughest start of any team in the Premier League: an opening game against New Arsenal last week, then Liverpool tonight and Manchester City. at the end of August. I’m sure they also have a winnable game at home to Villa on Saturday, but can we please not stop there. I’m trying to sell a narrative here!

The point is that no one is giving Palace much of a chance tonight. If you like betting you can get 16/1 on a Palace win and 6/1 on a draw. Since having the gall to win three successive games at Anfield between 2015-17, Palace have lost ten in a row, home and away, to Liverpool.

This match looked formidable even before Liverpool started the season with a sloppy and slow 2-2 draw at Fulham. Such an action has consequences. Liverpool players have been listening for nine days to people who doubt their commitment to another season of heavy football. The reaction starts at 20:00
