About the match
Crystal Palace is going head to head with Liverpool starting on 23 Jan 2022 at 14:00 UTC at Selhurst Park stadium, London city, England. The match is a part of the Premier League.
Fresh from booking their place in the EFL Cup final, Liverpool return to Premier League action seeking another Selhurst Park spectacular against Crystal Palace.
Meanwhile, the hosts are returning to action nine days after playing out an enthralling 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion in the M23 derby.
A missed penalty, a woodwork hit and plenty of VAR controversy – Palace’s showdown with Brighton typified a proper Premier League derby. However, Patrick Vieira may be counting his lucky stars that his side travelled back from the Amex with a point to their name.
With Jack Butland saving a tame penalty from Pascal Gross and Neal Maupay having a goal ruled out for a foul on the ‘keeper, Palace took the lead against the run of play courtesy of usual suspect Conor Gallagher before Joachim Andersen turned into his own net with three minutes remaining.
Palace’s search for a first Premier League win of 2022 goes on, but Vieira’s side are sitting comfortably in 11th position before the weekend’s fixtures kick off, with 10th-placed Leicester City one point clear having played two games fewer.
For all of the attacking talent at Vieira’s disposal, a paltry tally of two wins from their last 10 in the Premier League represents that of a side still with great strides to make if they are to establish themselves as a top-half outfit, but home is where the heart is for the Eagles.
Indeed, Vieira’s side have only lost two of their 11 top-flight games at Selhurst Park this season and have scored at least two goals in each of their last four on home soil, but Liverpool certainly have fond memories of playing at this ground.
- Crystal Palace have lost nine successive Premier League meetings since a 2-1 win at Anfield in April 2017. The Eagles have never suffered 10 successive top-flight defeats against a single opponent.
- Palace’s club record 7-0 home defeat in this fixture last season was their sixth league loss in a row against Liverpool at Selhurst Park.
- Palace have only won twice in 10 league games and are in danger of losing successive home fixtures for the first time under Patrick Vieira.
- The Eagles have won two of their past three Premier League encounters against sides starting the day in the top three of the table, beating Spurs 3-0 and Manchester City 2-0 this season.
- Their current 10-match scoring streak at home is the club’s second longest in the top flight after a run of 12 games from February to October 1990.
- Conor Gallagher has been directly involved in 10 Premier League goals in 18 appearances for Crystal Palace. Andrew Johnson is the only Eagles player ever to reach double figures in fewer games.
- Christian Benteke has scored six Premier League goals against Liverpool. He scored nine times in 29 top-flight appearances for the Reds in 2015-16.
- Jurgen Klopp’s side have won 10 of their 11 league games this season against teams who began this round of fixtures in the bottom half of the table, only dropping points in a 3-3 draw at Brentford.
- However, Liverpool could go five league matches without a win in London for the first time since October 2015.
- They dropped points in each of their last three Premier League away games.
- Roberto Firmino’s 10 most recent league goals for Liverpool have all come away, starting with a brace against Crystal Palace last season.
- Fabinho is one short of 300 career league appearances.
- Klopp has won all six Premier League away fixtures against Crystal Palace – it’s a record for most away matches by a manager against a single opponent without ever dropping points.
