BY SAM SMITH

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has named an unchanged side to face Liverpool this evening.

 

Summer signings Max Meyer and Jordan Ayew make the bench for the first time, alongside Cheikhou Kouyate who featured for the final five minutes in the opening day victory against Fulham.

Crystal Palace: Hennessey, Wan-Bissaka, Tomkins, Sakho, Van Aanholt, McArthur, Milivojevic, Schlupp, Townsend, Benteke, Zaha. Subs: Guaita, Ward, Kelly, Kouyate, Meyer, Sorloth, Ayew.
