CRY Vs LIV Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Liverpool look to extend their lead at the top of the table.
Taking a clear cut lead for the first time this season after putting down Tottenham 2-1 the last time around, Liverpool are showing why many considered them as outright favourites for the trophy this season. The fight and character showcased by the club at the tailend of the contest to take home the three points are traits which determine the mettle of champions.
Despite being without the services of 10 of their regular names, Liverpool failed to be fazed when Tottenham came calling. Despite the best tries of Tottenham to defend for their life and keep bolstering their defence across the 90 minutes, Liverpool finally found a way through to take home a much deserved three points.
That win was followed by Klopp being named the FIFA manager of the year for the second year running along with a string of Liverpool names being named in the side of the year. The recent set of events have seen jubilations erupt around the club with the side fast emerging as the only viable candidate for this season’s title.

With every passing, Vincent Guaita is only growing in stature for Crystal Palace. A goal-keeper capable of paying away everything sent down his way, he was an instant pick for us today.
With Matip set to return for today’s contest, Liverpool’s backline has slowly seen all its crucial names filter back in. With three of the four defenders getting the clean bill of health for today’s clash, this Liverpool backline looks extremely likely to end up with a cleansheet.
It will see us opt for the club’s entire defensive setup with Joel Matip, Andrew Robertson, Fabinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold being inducted in our backline.
Jordan Henderson’s ability to keep the ball ticking with his ball handling abilities sees him be our pick from Liverpool. He’s going to find company in the services of Sadio Mane who despite his recent downtick in form has the four goals and four assists this season.
Crystal Palace will see us make Eberechi Eze the first pick from the club with him having snagged two assists this season. He’s going to be partnered up with James McArthur and Jeffrey Schlupp, two players capable of turning over possession from defence to attack.
Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah scored against Tottenham to see him wrap up our set of picks for the upcoming tie.
Captain And Vice-Captain
11 goal man Salah leads our side out as the captain while Robertson is the vice-captain.
Vincent, Andrew, Fabinho, Matip, Trent, Mane, Schlupp, Jordan, James, Eze, Salah
