Reds, look away now.
Palace have confirmed that they’ll have an aerial specialist fit and raring to go when we face them at Selhurst Park on Saturday evening. And no, it’s not Christian Benteke.
We’re talking about boyhood Liverpool fan, Scott Dann.
While we’ve been distracted all week by the return of the threat posed by our former striker, Pardew has dropped a bombshell by admitting Dann should be ok to play some part. He has not played since mid-September when he injured his hamstring. (Echo).
Not sure what all the fuss is about?
- So far this season, no player has had more efforts on goal from set-piece situations than Dann.
- He has scored two goals in five league games this season.
- He scored the winner against us at Anfield last season.
So — Benteke and Dann. Are Matip and Lovren up to the challenge? Let’s all hope so…
