Liverpool Bid For Selhurst Park Goal Fest
Over 3.5 Goals Palace v Liverpool
Premier League legend Matt Le Tissier expects Liverpool to bounce back against Crystal Palace led by a big performance from Steven Gerrard.
Liverpool head to Selhurst Park tonight where they must win against Crystal Palace to keep the pressure on Manchester City and take the Premier League title race down to the wire.
City’s victory at Everton keeps them in the driving seat with two home games to play and superior goal difference but Brendan Rogers has said his team is capable of scoring enough to turn around the nine-goal deficit.
Matt Le Tissier tips: “Jose Mourinho’s tactical masterclass at Anfield last Sunday put a spanner in the works for Liverpool’s title bid. I fancy them to bounce back this weekend against Crystal Palace with Steven Gerrard set for a big performance to make up for his mishap last weekend. The Reds skipper is 19/10 with 888sport to score anytime.
The visitors to Selhurst Park have scored in 17 of their 18 away league games this season and, good as Palace have been of late, Paddy Power’s 2/5 for the away win is one for the accas. I fancy a few goals in this one too and my bet is Over 3.5 at 17/11 with 888sport.”
Palace have enjoyed a remarkable recovery under Tony Pulis and ensured Premier League survival with a run of five straight wins. It came to an end at home to Manchester City a week past Sunday when Palace had a real go at taking the game to City, but lost 2-0. With nothing to lose, Pulis could take a similar approach against Liverpool which could mean we’ll be in for a treat of goals.
