Liverpool v Crystal Palace: match preview

The 10,000 Liverpool fans who will be present at Anfield could not have envisaged the prize at stake when the ticket ballot opened just over two weeks ago. Nor could Jürgen Klopp, for that matter. But, after collecting 23 points from the last 27 available, his team will be in the Champions League next season with three more against an opponent they beat 7-0 five months ago. Klopp has won more Premier League games against Crystal Palace than any other team (9) and an Anfield crowd would take more satisfaction than most in ruining Roy Hodgson’s farewell to top-flight management.
