Liverpool seem to have started the season on fire, although in fairness we only have one competitive match – against what looked to be an average West Ham, especially judging by their follow up result against Bournemouth – to judge them on so far.
Liverpool hammered West Ham 4-0 at Anfield on the opening weekend of the season, with Mohamed Salah taking only 19 minutes to open his account for this season in the rout.
The Hammers followed up that performance with a 2-1 defeat at home to Bournemouth on Saturday, so the Red’s win over West Ham isn’t the greatest yardstick to judge them by so far this season.
That said, Klopp’s men did look like they picked up in the league where they left off last season, plenty of energy, flair, and goals, with Salah and Mane on the score sheet, and even the on/off Daniel Sturridge finding the back of the net.
Four goals and three points. Picking up from where we left off at Anfield last season. ?

Liverpool are around 2/5 to win tonight at Palace (kick off at 8pm), and with the Reds away from home, that could be considered a touch short. For the record, Palace are 13/2, and the draw is 4/1 (all odds with Betfair correct at the time of writing).
Crystal Palace got their season off to a decent start with a 2-0 win away at newly promoted Fulham on the opening day of the season, with Wilfried Zaha scoring and playing a pivotal role in the win, a decent result in the Premier League by anybody’s standards.
A Liverpool win tonight won’t surprise me, but in order to enhance the odds, I would be looking at a win plus outright bet. For example, a Liverpool win along with Salah to score anytime is 20/21 with Boylesports, while a Liverpool win and Over 2.5 Goals is 10/11, also with Boylesports.
The Anytime Goalscorer market is always very popular, and profitable if you where on Mo Salah for most of last season. Tonight, Salah is 8/11 favourite with Coral, who also have Sturridge at 23/20, Firmino at 13/10, and Mane is 8/5.
For Palace, it’s Zaha all the way. The big man is 13/5 to hit the net anytime, with former Red’s striker Christian Benteke at 14/5 (all with Coral).
For me tonight though, I think I would be looking at goals. Over 2.5 Goals is quite short at 8/15, so I would either be doubling that up with a Liverpool win in the Match Result and Over/Under 2.5 Goals market. Or alternatively, just backing Over 3.5 Goals at 13/10 with Betfair.
