The Reds take on Alan Pardew’s Eagles at Selhurst Park, looking to extend their unbeaten run to 11 games in all competitions.

Buoyed by a 2-1 victory at home to Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup on Tuesday night, Liverpool can hope to seal their sixth win in their last seven outings in the Premier League.

After making 11 changes to his lineup against Spurs, Klopp has reverted to type in the league, with 10 players coming back in.

This includes goalkeeper Loris Karius, who the manager stressed is now his established No. 1.

Karius will operate behind a back four of Nathaniel Clyne, Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and Alberto Moreno, who keeps his place due to illness to James Milner.

In midfield, Jordan Henderson is back from suspension and slots straight back into his role as Klopp’s No. 6, with Adam Lallana and Emre Can completing a three-man unit.

Can’s return to the starting lineup sees Georginio Wijnaldum named on the substitutes’ bench, with the German winning the battle for a place in midfield.

Despite scoring twice to seal the win over Spurs in midweek, Daniel Sturridge also drops back onto the bench with Roberto Firmino taking his place alongside Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho.

Joining Sturridge and Wijnaldum on the bench are Simon Mignolet, Connor Randall, Ragnar Klavan, Lucas Leiva and Divock Origi.
