Liverpool travel to Palace against the backdrop of a humbling 5-2 loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League last-16 first at Anfield. Joe Gomez was forced off in the second half with a suspected hamstring injury.

Many regard Konate and Virgil van Dijk as the Reds’ best centre-back partnership but much depends on whether he will be match-fit to feature at Selhurst Park or be saved for the clash at home to Wolves on Wednesday 1 March.
