Liverpool start lineup for Crystal Palace when Mohamed Salah returns

Mohamed Salah returns to Liverpool when he hosts Crystal Palace at Anfield for a game that could ultimately win the Reds the Premier League title.

Salah missed the Merseyside derby on Sunday due to injury, but is back at the front with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

Andy Robertson, who completely missed the 236 derby last week, is back on the left side when Joe Gomez partners with Virgil van Dijk in the center of defense.

There’s a comeback for Gini Wijnaldum in Liverpool’s midfield alongside Fabinho and captain Jordan Henderson when Naby Keita falls to the bench for Anfield’s first competitive game since mid-March.

Tonight’s victory will take Jurgen Klopp’s side two points off the title.

And they will be crowned champions on Thursday night if Manchester City bumps into Chelsea.

Liverpool: Alisson Alexander-Arnold, Gómez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Mane, Firmino

Subs: Adrian, Lovren, Keita, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Minamino, Origi, Jones, Elliott, Williams.
