While Jurgen Klopp looks over what Liverpool did in the game against Fulham on Matchday 1 of the Premier League and wonders if it would be good to sign another midfielder after Thiago Alcantara's injury, the match against Crystal Palace is drawing near.

Liverpool will return to each with the unbeatable opportunity to correct the mistakes of the first week, since it has been 17 months since they lost a Premier League game at Anfield, where they have won 13 of their last 14 games.

Furthermore, since the 2003-04 season, Liverpool have not lost their first home Premier League game of a new season, and the competition will celebrate its 30th anniversary on Monday night, ending a run of conceding the first in each of their last five top-flight matches would be the ideal anniversary present for Klopp and company.

Line-up

While Thiago will be out for at least six weeks, he comes together with injuries sustained at Craven Cottage as he joins Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Caoimhin Kelleher, Diogo Jota, Curtis Jones and Ibrahima Konate.

Joel Matip is also a last-minute doubt after missing training with a groin injury, but on the positive note, Naby Keita has recovered from illness, and Kostas Tsimikas has a good chance of recovering from a knock and participating.

The possible absence of Matip could mean the renewal of the pairing of Van Dijk and Joe Gómez at Anfield, and Núñez has done enough to earn his first start in the competition, as Roberto Firmino was not very accurate last weekend.

This is how the Livepool lineup would be made up: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Keita; Salah, Nunez, Diaz.
