Liverpool did start the season with a win in the community shield after an impressive 1:3 over Manchester City, but in the opening round of the Premier League season there was a surprise when the newcomer, Fulham with Manor Solomon, stopped them on the way to 2:2.
With the great rival Manchester City already with six points after two games, the Reds cannot afford to lose points even at this time against Crystal Palace (live on Sport1).
Jurgen Klopp had to deal with an injury blow already at this stage of the season, when Joel Matip and Thiago Alcantara joined the injured list last week.
The Spaniard is one of many midfielders who were not at Klopp's disposal, and in addition to Matip, Klopp will also miss the stopper Ibrahima Konata and the link and attack players Curtis Jones, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Diego Jota and Roberto Firmino.
Therefore, the line-up included linebacker Nathaniel Phillips and 19-year-old Harvey Elliott.
Other changes in the lineup are the relegation of captain Jordan Henderson to the bench and James Milner in his place, as well as the placement of Darwin Nunes, making his debut in the 11th in the red uniform.

Palace have lost to Liverpool in the last 12 meetings between the teams, with the Reds scoring at least two goals in ten of those meetings.
The course of the game:
minute 1: Already in the first period, Liverpool was close to scoring when Alexander Arnold's lift was deflected by Guetta straight to the feet of Milner, who kicked outside the box.
9th minute: A great break by Elliott was blocked at the last moment by Andersen, immediately after Alexander Arnold lifted a ball to Nunez who missed from close range.
17th minute: The heavy pressure of the locals continued, but again Vieira's defense closed well and prevented Robertson and Madias from scoring from close range.
