Meanwhile, Roberto Firmino can achieve a peculiar goalscoring feat if he scores in this very game on Monday night. The No9 would become the 15th player in the club's history to score in all seven days of the week. Firmino can also reach 200 Premier League appearances for the Reds if he is selected in the XI by Jürgen Klopp.

Facts

Liverpool are unbeaten in 20 league games, the eighth-longest streak. The Reds have scored 20 of the last 21 goals scored between the two sides in this fixture. At Anfield: last season's 3-0 win over Crystal Palace. There have been just two goalless draws in all league meetings between the two clubs, while Jurgen Klopp has won more Premier League games against the Eagles (12) than against any other team.

Trent Alexander-Arnold will reach his 150th league game for Liverpool and Jordan Henderson could play his club-record 15th game against Palace, surpassing John Barnes' previous record of 14. The Reds are unbeaten in 23 league games against the Kop since losing to Fulham by a single goal in an empty stadium in March 2021. 

This is Liverpool's first Monday night game since a 1-1 draw at Leeds United in April 2021, and their last at Anfield was in September 2020, when they beat Arsenal 3-1. They have never lost a game played on 15 August, having won five and drawn two of the seven matches played.
