Crystal Palace’s best player Wilfried Zaha will miss our bogey team’s trip to Anfield at the weekend, reports the Independent.
The Ivorian injured his leg against Huddersfield on Premier League opening day and is expected to be sidelined for a month.
Palace lost 3-0 to the promoted Terriers at the weekend so will be travelling to Anfield bereft of early season confidence.
But they consistently cause us problems, beating us on home turf last term due to a Christian Benteke brace.
It’s imperative following our draw at Vicarage Road that we follow up the 3-3 with three points, before finishing off Hoffenheim in the Champions League.
With our frontline, we can beat anyone – although Palace will play direct and look to cause Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Simon Mignolet problems from high balls. It’s time for that backline to prove many fans wrong and show they can do a job, whether we bring in Virgil van Dijk or not.
