Crystal Palace – Liverpool (16:00, Sport 2)
Anyone who feared a drop in tension and a loss of points on the part of Liverpool during the stay of Muhammad Salah and Sadio Mane at the African Championship, was greatly deceived. Jürgen Klopp’s side have not lost a game in which they are missing two stars, but know they must continue to do so to maintain any chance of closing the gap from City who last night lost two points against Southampton. Even today, in the absence of the stars of the African Championship, Liverpool will continue their attack with Diego Jote and Roberto Firmino, alongside Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who returned to 11 at the expense of the young Cade Gordon.
Palace, on the other hand, understand the balance of power well based on the previous nine meetings between the teams, which ended in Liverpool’s victories with a goal ratio of 5:27. Palace got Jordan Ive back, who managed to return from the African Championship after Ghana’s relegation, but he is not in the 11th and those who will try to surprise the Mighters are Conor Gallagher, Willie Hughes and strikers Edson Edouard and Jean-Philippe Matta.
Arsenal – Burnley (16:00, Sport1)
The historic meetings between the teams show a unilateral advantage in favor of the Gunners, but given the current fitness of the Gunners who come into the game after four consecutive games without a win and a lackluster lineup, everything may be open. Arteta will miss the suspended Granit Jaka and Thomas Party, Muhammad Alleni and Nicolas Pepe who are still participating in the African Championship and also Pierre Emerick Obmiang, but hopes to recover and come back to win nonetheless and in front of him will collaborate Gabriel Martinelli, Martin Odgor, Emile Smith-Roo Saka and Alexander Lacassette. On the other hand, the table lock comes with a streak of seven games without a win, but fantasizes about recreating a visit to the Emirates Stadium from last season, when it achieved its only win over the Gunners in the Premier League.
