Liverpool v Crystal Palace
After drawing 3-3 against Watford last weekend, will Liverpool do better this Saturday when Crystal Palace travel to Anfield?
The Eagles suffered an even worse opening day in the Premier League as they lost 3-0 at home to Huddersfield.
Palace, of course, are often dubbed Liverpool’s bogey team after the south London side helped to end all hopes that Brendan Rodgers’ team could win the title several years ago.
Good news for Liverpool, bad news for Crystal Palace
On Tuesday, Crystal Palace have been hit with some bad, bad news.
The one positive fro the Huddersfield game was the performance of Wilfried Zaha.
So often played on the wing, Zaha has been moved closer to Christian Benteke in a more central role and was unlucky not to pull a goal back for the Eagles at 2-0 Huddersfield.
Zaha played the full 90 minutes, but after the game Crystal Palace fans are fretting over a social media update from the Ivory Coast international.
The Crystal Palace talisman posted a picture on Instagram Stories in a leg brace.

Worst fears realised
On Tuesday it’s been confirmed that Zaha is now out injured.
It’s been reported that Zaha is out for up to a month.
That means he’ll definitely be out of the match against Liverpool this weekend.
He’s also likely to miss the next Premier League match against Swansea on August 22.
Told that Wilfried Zaha is expected to be out for four weeks #cpfc
