Crystal Palace and Liverpool have very different ambitions at opposite ends of the table as they prepare to face each other at Selhurst Park in an early kick-off on Saturday.
After four consecutive defeats in the league, the Eagles claimed an encouraging 2-0 win at Huddersfield Town prior to the international break. The win helped them move out of the bottom three, but the fear of relegation is not over yet. They are currently placed 16th in the table with 30 points, just two points clear of the danger.
Palace will come against a strong Liverpool side who demolished Watford 5-0 in their last game thanks to four goals from Mohamed Salah.
However, Palace will take courage from the fact that they have won four of their last seven league meetings with the Reds.
Liverpool are currently placed third in the table with 63 points, but they have played a game more than fourth-placed Tottenham. However, only two points separate them from second-placed Manchester United, and Jurgen Klopp would want his side to finish above their arch-rivals.
In their last away game, the Reds suffered a 2-1 defeat at United, but that was their only defeat in last nine games in all competitions.
Earlier this season, the Reds claimed a 1-0 win over their opponents at Anfield, thanks to the 73rd-minute goal from Sadio Mane.
