Liverpool: Klopp hails Firmino after winner against Spurs

Liverpool will be facing a Palace side that haven’t lost a game since the end of November.

The South London side have also failed to keep a clean sheet against the Reds in all of their 14 Premier League games against Liverpool since their promotion back to the top flight.

What’s been said?
Liverpool boss Klopp said: “Cahill and Schlupp were not even in the squad for the last game. They were rested for the game against us, so that just shows you how confident they are and how comfortable a situation they have.
“So, I’m impressed about the performance level they are able to play… they look good, they look sharp. It will be a tough one.”
Palace boss Roy Hodgson said: “Playing away to West Bromwich Albion and then having to play against Tottenham, who were top of the league at the time, then West Ham who were top five when we played them and now Liverpool who are once again top of the table.
“That’s a very tough run of fixtures but the good thing is that we’re going into them with some belief that we know what we’re good at and we’re capable of producing good performances against teams of that quality.”
