Liverpool FC vs Crystal Palace LIVE! Pre-season friendly

Liverpool FC vs Crystal Palace LIVE! Pre-season friendly

While it’s important not to take too much in the way of definitive conclusions from a pre-season friendly, Jurgen Klopp admitted his Liverpool side made far too many mistakes in their 4-0 loss to bitter rivals Manchester United earlier this week.

Clearly, the team are just getting back into the swing of things after a particularly gruelling campaign but the fact there is under a month to go until the Premier League starts back up again means improvements are both urgent and necessary.

Mohamed Salah was given 45 minutes against United and will surely get more minutes in the tank as Liverpool meet Crystal Palace in Singapore as the star forward bids to build a relationship with big-money star Darwin Nunez. Palace, meanwhile head into this one without a number of important players due to various injuries or down to Covid vaccination status.

Klopp issues injury update

Jurgen Klopp has been speaking to the Liverpool coverage of the match, to discuss the condition of Joe Gomez, Diogo Jota and Alisson Becker.

He said: “Diogo is a concern. With Diogo it’s a muscle again.

“Joe, no. Joe is just a precaution and not any kind of risk-taking is worth it. He is really good in the pre-season so far; he felt a little bit here and there so we said, ‘OK, then he is out.’

“Ali is not cool as well; it will not be too long but each day Ali is not involved is already too long, to be honest.”


Vieira responds to Zaha exit talk

Patrick Vieira has dismissed talk of Wilfried Zaha leaving Crystal Palace this summer.

The 29-year-old is entering the final 12 months of his contract at Selhurst Park, with no agreement yet reached over a new deal.

“It’s just a report I think,” Vieira said. “We are in a period where there is a lot of speculation regarding players.

“What is really important for me and the football club is that Wilfried Zaha came back on time and he is working well to have a good season.”

Klopp nominated for Liverpool gong

Jurgen Klopp has been nominated for the Freedom of the City of Liverpool for his achievements with the club.

“I have to be honest, when I first heard this news I had to take a minute to take it in,” said Klopp.

“As you can imagine, I get a lot of different types of news in my job but this was definitely a ‘wow’ moment.

“The main reason for this was what Liverpool, the city and its wonderful people mean to me and my family. The welcome that we have been given has been unbelievable from the word go, so to get this kind of recognition is incredible. It is also very humbling.”


A scenic morning trip for Palace


Crystal Palace field a largely-senior XI but with youngsters Killian Phillips and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi in midfield.

That Eagles bench is also packed full of kids.


Eight changes to Liverpool’s starting XI from the youthful side dispatched by Manchester United in Bangkok.

Jordan Henderson, Luis Diaz and Roberto Firmino keep their places while the likes of James Milner, Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate come in.
