Liverpool and Crystal Palace face off at Anfield this evening in what will be the first Monday night game of the season.
Both sides will undoubtedly be looking to improve on their performances in their opening league fixtures which saw them unable to take home three points.
Marco Silva’s side caused the Reds real problems and the Cottagers will feel they deserved more than the 2-2 result they ended up with.
Crystal Palace hosted Arsenal at a rocking Selhurst Park and the Gunners, who look like a rejuvenated side so far this season, raced to a 2-0 victory, leaving the Eagles in 18th place ahead of tonight’s fixture.
Monday Night Football returns to fans’ screens for the first time this campaign and you can watch Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher dissect the weekend’s games and provide build up for this evening’s clash.
Coverage starts at 7pm BST on the Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League channels but the game will not kick off until 8pm BST.
The Merseyside club go into the game with a long injury list and will be far from full strength.
Thiago, who picked up a hamstring issue last week against Fulham, is unavailable for this evening’s game alongside Oxlade Chamberlain and Curtis Jones.
Joel Matip is also set to miss out after being forced to sit out training on Friday after he picked up a slight groin injury.
However, Liverpool fans will welcome the return of Naby Keita to the squad after he recovered from an illness which saw him miss their opening match.
Although Nunez has been in great form off the bench, Klopp may be tempted to start Firmino again, which would get him to the milestone of 200 Premier League starts. Alexander-Arnold is also in line to achieve his 150th Premier League start.
For the visitors, Michael Olise could be available for selection after returning to training this week but Palace will still be without the injured veterans James McArthur and James Tomkins.
