Liverpool hosts Crystal Palace on Monday at Anfield in a matchup of teams seeking their first 2022-23 English Premier League victory. The Reds will be eager to get maximum points after a disappointing 2-2 draw with Fulham on the road at Craven Cottage last Saturday. They know they can't afford to do that again, as another fierce battle for the league title is anticipated this year. Manchester City edged Liverpool by one point to win last year's crown, so the Reds face the closest thing to a must-win scenario there can be this early in the season. City's 4-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday moved it to 2-0-0 with a +6 goal differential. The Eagles kicked off the Premier League season with a Friday matchup against Arsenal on Aug. 5. The Gunners, who hope to be in the running at the top of the table, took a 2-0 victory at Selhurst Park. It doesn't get any easier this week for Palace, but manager Patrick Vieira has started to turn things around with a team that finished 12th in the Premier League table in 2021-22.      

Kickoff is set for 3 p.m ET in Liverpool, England. Caesars Sportsbook lists Liverpool as the -470 favorite (risk $470 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in its latest Liverpool vs. Crystal Palace odds.

Why you should back Liverpool

The Reds have dominated Crystal Palace and have been nearly impossible to beat at Anfield. They went 15-4-0 at home in league play last season, scoring 49 goals while conceding just nine. Eight of Palace's 12 losses came away from home in 2021-22, and they have not beaten Liverpool in the past 10 meetings. The Reds outscored the Eagles 15-1 in the four wins over the past two seasons. Liverpool scored 44 more goals over the course of last season – it ranked second in the EPL with 94 – and conceded 20 fewer.

Liverpool on paper is better than it was last year, with Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez joining an attack led by Mohamed Salah. Salah tied for most goals in the league with 23. Nunez, who signed this summer, had 26 for Benfica in 2021-22, while January transfer Diaz scored 18 with Porto and the Reds. The Liverpool defense, led by Virgil Van Dijk, will be eager to make up for a rare off week. Liverpool allowed eight shots per game last season, second-fewest in the league. It yielded nine against Fulham, but allowed two goals on the three attempts that were on target.

Why you should back Crystal Palace

Vieira no doubt was paying close attention to Liverpool's difficulties on the back line last week, and he has some attackers who can exploit weaknesses. Aleksandar Mitrovic scored both goals for Fulham last week, drawing a penalty from Van Dijk and beating Trent Alexander-Arnold on a header. The Eagles don't have a player with Mitrovic's physicality, but it has players with a lot of pace who can take advantage of lapses. Wilfried Zaha (14 goals in 2021-22), Odsonne Edouard (six), Jean-Philippe Mateta (five) and Jordan Ayew (three) all are capable of creating problems.

Eberechi Eze had a goal and an assist in six starts with Palace last season, and he had a hand in four goals in five games during the preseason. The Eagles actually had the edge in possession (57 percent to 43) and equaled Arsenal's 10 shots and two on target last week. They went 3-1-1 in their last five games of the 2021-22 season, so Liverpool will need to be at the top of its game, especially on the back end. The Reds have conceded first in their past five EPL matches, so if Palace can get on the board early, it would take pressure off the defense.
