Crystal Palace will be keen to maintain their upward trajectory under Patrick Vieira when they welcome Liverpool to Selhurst Park on Sunday.

A late Joachim Andersen own goal denied the Eagles a precious three points at Brighton last time out after Conor Gallagher had opened the scoring.

Palace currently lie on the cusp of the top half in the Premier League and they will be keen to avenge last season's 7-0 home defeat to Jurgen Klopp's men.

Here's how the Eagles could line up.


Crystal Palace predicted lineup vs Liverpool - Premier League

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Jack Butland (GK) - Enjoying a renaissance under Vieira, denying Pascal Gross from the spot last time out.

Joel Ward (RB) - An area of the pitch Crystal Palace need to upgrade, but Ward offers a solid short-term option.

Joachim Andersen (CB) - The unfortunate source of the late own goal in last weekend's 1-1 draw with Brighton.

Marc Guehi (CB) - The former Chelsea man has formed a commanding partnership with Andersen.

Tyrick Mitchell (LB) - Excellent against the Seagulls and his athleticism is impressive for a 22-year-old.

2. Midfielders

Will Hughes (CM) - Underrated outside the Selhurst Park bubble, offering qualities on both sides of the ball.

Jeffrey Schlupp (CM) - Vieira values his energy and ability to carry the ball in midfield.

Conor Gallagher (CM) - The signing of the season in the Premier League? He's definitely up there.

3. Forwards

Michael Olise (RW) - A frighteningly good talent, but he needs to learn to be consistent over 90 minutes.

Odsonne Edouard (ST) - On a pure technique level there aren't many centre forwards who can rival the Frenchman in the Premier League.

Eberechi Eze (LW) - Vieira has handled Eze's return from injury very carefully as he gradually builds up his minutes.
