Liverpool will aim to match Arsenal’s pace in the Premier League title race and continue their strong performance in the competition as they head to face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday.
The team has been in impressive form, having lost just one of their last 26 Premier League games. Their recent 2-0 win against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane added to their title aspirations. Since their 4-1 defeat against Manchester City in April, Liverpool has amassed more points than any other team in the league, tallying 59 points.
Virgil van Dijk scored the opening goal in their latest victory, maintaining Liverpool’s perfect record of winning all 15 Premier League games in which he has scored. Trent Alexander-Arnold’s assist for the goal marked his 75th assist in all competitions for Liverpool since his debut in October 2016, placing him behind only Kevin De Bruyne (129) and Mohamed Salah (80) for Premier League sides in that timeframe.
Salah, despite not scoring in his last three league appearances, is closing in on his 200th goal for Liverpool. Achieving this milestone would place him among the five players who have scored 200 or more goals for the club, alongside Ian Rush (346), Roger Hunt (285), Gordon Hodgson (240), and Billy Liddell (228).
