Liverpool’s first away game of the season sees them travel to Crystal Palace; here are all the bests stats and facts ahead of kick-off.

There have been two goalless draws in all league fixtures between the teams, in 1979-80 at Selhurst Park and in December 1994 at Anfield.
Liverpool have kept one clean sheet in the last 15 league and cup meetings with Palace home and away; the one they kept at Anfield a year ago was their first in the league since 1997.
At Selhurst Park, the Reds have kept one clean sheet in the last 11 league visits—a 3-0 victory in 1997.
