Tonight at 19:30 we will be witnessing a historic game, match that will be remembered and certainly over the years. Although not a classic of English football, Liverpool vs Crystal Palace will be the last game of Steven Gerrard at Anfield Road before leaving LA Galaxy. The Reds have prepared a special reception before the game captain, after which will take place several actions and to end the match. I think that this game can not end with a victory for the hosts than being “eaten bread ‘for bettors, in my opinion. A victory here would give them mathematically cormorants fifth place that leads directly into the Europa League. Currently there are no chances to Top 4 team coached by Brendan Rodgers.

Liverpool Probable team (4-3-3): Mignolet – Can, Lovren, Skrtel, Johnson – Henderson, Lucas, Gerrard – Lallana, Sterling, Coutinho.
On the other side of the fence are Crystal Palace, the out of shape in the Premier League team of the moment, the only fact which comes after four consecutive defeats. Even so, Londoners have secured peace on this end of season, being rescued from mathematical point of view. Specifically, Palace ranked 12th in the standings with 42 points, eight lengths of the relegation zone. Goal difference of 43-50 is admirable in terms of offense, the second from 9th down. I conspicuous interesting coincidence, namely that Liverpool and Palace have battled last season in round 37.
