A thumping 4-0 win against West Ham United in the season opener has uplifted the spirit at Anfield following a Champions League final heartbreak against Real Madrid and Liverpool, now being considered as one of the title favorites, are thriving to continue their dominance in Premier League football.
The Reds, however, have a tricky away outing on Monday night against Crystal Palace, a bogey side who have troubled them time and again in recent past. The Eagles, too, have enjoyed a comprehensive 2-0 win over new boys Fulham on the road and will look to continue their impressive run under Roy Hodgson on Monday night.
