After getting off to a thumping start with a 4-0 pounding of West Ham United at Anfield on the English Premier League opening weekend, as Sky Sports reported, last season’s UEFA Champions League finalists Liverpool will hope to keep their momentum going when they travel south to London. They will meet Crystal Palace in the first EPL Monday night match of the 2018-2019 season, a game that will live stream from Selhurst Park.
Liverpool’s Sengalese star, Sadio Mane, scored a pair against West Ham while Mohammed Salah and Daniel Sturridge, coming on as a substitute, put one each into the back of the net as Jurgen Klopp’s side got their new league campaign off to a fast start. But Palace, last season’s 11th place finisher on the Premier League table, also got off to a flying start, with a convincing 2-0 victory over Fulham.
Crystal Palace fans will also be keeping an eye on Ivorian Wilfried Zaha, who signed a new five-year deal with the Eagles just a week ago, after being the subject of interest from several clubs in the transfer window. He now needs just one goal in the striped jersey of Crystal Palace to make him the club’s all-time leading Premier League goal scorer, according to Sky Sports.

The Monday Night EPL clash promises to deliver on the promise of goals, as Crystal Palace Manager Roy Hodgson promises that his team will play an attacking style against the high-flying visitors from the northeast. Hodgson himself endured a brief and tumultuous stay at Liverpool, lasting only six months in 2010 and early 2011, as the Liverpool Echo recalled.
“It’s no way going to be a case of us just accepting we cannot beat them, so therefore we will just defend against them. We’ve got the treat it the same way as the Fulham game,” Hodgson said, as quoted by Football London. “When we have the ball we’ll try and use the gifts that we have in forward positions as we’ve got some players that teams will be concerned about.”
