LIV vs CRY Dream11 team tips for Premier League 2022-23
Top tip: Best forward
New signing Darwin Nunez inspired Liverpool’s fightback against Fulham with a goal and assist, and thus, is likely to find a place in most fantasy managers’ teams against Crystal Palace. The Uruguayan striker, recently nominated for the 2022 Ballon d’Or, will be eager to be on the scoresheet in front of the home crowd at Anfield.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Crystal Palace’s Cheick Doucoure could be the trump card the users are looking for. The young midfielder, who left the 0-2 loss to Arsenal with a cramp, is expected to start against Liverpool and showcase the form (87.5 per cent pass success rate in 2021-22 Ligue 1) that earned him a move to Patrick Vieira’s Palace team. A presence at the center of the park, he’s more than capable of contributing assists and goals on his day.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Former Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne can be an ideal selection. The 31-year-old Crystal Palace full-back will be tasked with breaking down the Andy Robertson-Luis Diaz partnership on the right flank while contributing through balls forward for Andrew Ayew and Wilfred Zaha to find the net against Liverpool.
For a goalkeeper, LIV’s Alisson Becker is an outright pick. The Brazil international is most likely to keep a clean sheet and make great saves that is guaranteed to give fantasy users an added bonus to their points tally.
LIV vs CRY probable playing XI
LIV playing XI (probable): Alisson Becker (goalkeeper); Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson; Jordan Henderson (captain), Fabinho, Naby Keita; Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz
CRY playing XI (probable): Vincent Guaita (goalkeeper); Nathaniel Clyne, Joachim Andersen, Marc Guehi, Tyrick Mitchell; Jeffrey Schlupp, Cheick Doucoure, Eberechi Eze; Jordan Ayew, Jean-Philippe Mateta, Wilfred Zaha (captain)
