Crystal Palace vs Liverpool Kick Off Time
NAME: Crystal Palace – Liverpool
DATE: 25 Feb 2023
TIME: 19:45 UTC
VENUE: Selhurst Park, London, England
The walking wounded of Liverpool return to Premier League action with glum faces as they prepare to take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday evening.
The Reds were demolished 5-2 by Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie in midweek, while Patrick Vieira’s men were cruelly pegged back in a 1-1 draw against Brentford.
In a game of few clear-cut chances, Eberechi Eze connected with Michael Olise’s cross to head Palace in front with 69 minutes gone, but in the sixth minute of second-half injury time, Vitaly Janelt powered home a header of his own to force a share of the spoils.
Now winless in eight consecutive matches since the turn of the year, Palace are not quite sleepwalking towards danger – still 12th in the table with a healthy six-point lead over the drop zone – but they will continue to look over their shoulder while they remain in the rut.
Nevertheless, four draws from their last five has demonstrated a more resilient streak about the Eagles, whose only defeat in that time was a narrow loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford, and they have also denied Brighton & Hove Albion and Newcastle United from taking all three points recently.
Each of Palace’s last three top-flight contests at Selhurst Park has ended in a draw, and not since October have Vieira’s men won a home game in the top flight, but a vibrant atmosphere can be expected as the Eagles endeavour to prolong Liverpool’s misery.
Having witnessed Jurgen Klopp’s side return to form in the Premier League with back-to-back wins over Everton and Newcastle United, optimism was rife around a raucous Anfield for a reunion with Champions League holders Real Madrid, and Liverpool fans may have been pinching themselves when Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah sent the Reds into a two-goal lead in the opening 15 minutes.
Unfortunately for those home supporters, that dream start would turn into a nightmare, as braces for Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema either side of Eder Militao’s header condemned Liverpool to their worst-ever home defeat in Europe, and few are holding out hope of an unparalleled comeback at the Bernabeu three weeks from now.
