Liverpool team news v Crystal Palace: Allison could return

Five issues Jurgen Klopp must tackle at Liverpool

Liverpool will travel to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday (9 December) lunchtime. 

Ahead of the match, Jurgen Klopp has shared his team news, and the Reds fans will be happy to hear that goalkeeper Allison could return to action this weekend.

The Brazilian goalkeeper picked up an injury whilst playing against Manchester City, and missed the previous three games.

Caoimhin Kelleher kept the goal in the absence of him, but it looks like the 31-year-old will be back in goal once again. Kelleher did well in the last match as Liverpool won 2-0 against Sheffield United.

Klopp, however, suggested that midfielder Alexis Mac Allister will miss this game. The Reds midfielder picked up a knee injury and needed stitches during the game.

The 24-year-old posted on Instagram that the injury is not serious but it looks like Klopp do not want to risk him.

“Jurgen Klopp says Alexis Mac Allister likely to miss Crystal Palace, Alisson Becker back in training and could feature,” wrote Paul Joyce, The Times journalist, on X.


The Reds are two points behind Arsenal at the top of the Premier League table and they will be looking to put pressure on the Gunners with a win at Selhurst Park.

Over the years, Liverpool have earned some great results at this venue, but Palace are always a dangerous side at home. They have been struggling a bit in recent weeks under Roy Hodgson but are capable of surprising everyone with a win here.

Missing Mac Allister will be a blow for the club. The Argentine has been in terrific form this season, but the Reds have other options. Curtis Jones is likely to come in while Ryan Gravenberch could be given a chance.
