Published 14th August 2022

Roberto Firmino can achieve a quirky goalscoring feat if he finds the back of the net during Liverpool's meeting with Crystal Palace on Monday night.

The No.9 would become the 15th player in the club's history to score on all seven days of the week.

Firmino can also bring up 200 Premier League starts for the Reds if he's selected in the XI by Jürgen Klopp.

Read on for more facts and figures ahead of the encounter with Patrick Vieira's side… 

Liverpool are currently 20 league games unbeaten – their joint-eighth longest run.

The Reds have scored 20 of the last 21 goals scored between the teams in this fixture.

Inside Anfield: Last season's 3-0 win over Crystal Palace

There have been just two goalless draws in all league fixtures between the clubs. 

Klopp has won more Premier League games against the Eagles (12) than he has against any other team.

Trent Alexander-Arnold's next start will be his 150th in the league for Liverpool.

Jordan Henderson could play in a club-record 15th game against Palace, beating John Barnes' previous high of 14.

The Reds are 23 league matches without defeat in front of the Kop, since losing to Fulham by a single goal in an empty stadium in March 2021.

This is Liverpool's first Monday night game since a 1-1 draw at Leeds United in April 2021, with their last at Anfield coming in September 2020 when they defeated Arsenal 3-1. 

They have never lost a match played on August 15, having won five and drawn two of the seven games played.

Milan Baros, in November 2004, is the only Liverpool player to have scored a hat-trick against Palace.
