Palace have no option to make Sakho's move from Liverpool permanent

  Palace have no option to make Sakho's move from Liverpool permanent Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that previous reports which suggested that Crystal Palace have an option to make Mamadou Sakho’s loan move a permanent deal in the summer are incorrect. Speaking at his press conference ahead of Liverpool’s game with West Brom this weekend, the German boss told reporters that there is no clause in the deal, which will be a blow to Palace fans. The French international has been in great form for the Eagles since breaking into the squad in recent weeks and most fans would agree that they’d like to keep him at the club on a permanent basis. However, Liverpool are apparently asking for around £30million for the 27-year-old and, if he carries on playing at his current level, there’ll probably be a club willing to splash the cash on him. A high asking price might not completely rule Palace out of the running to sign Sakho but with no clause in place, he’s likely to have a large number of options as his disposal.

Liverpool entertain Crystal Palace at Anfield on Saturday afternoon looking to move back to the top of the Premier League table. Here is a predicted team.

Liverpool hits the road for the first time in nearly a month when they travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon. Sadio Mane is Ruled Out for the Season Says Jurgen Klopp. Predicted Liverpool FC Starting XI against Stoke City.

Crystal Palace have a decent record at Anfield and they’ll be looking to extend that when they travel to Merseyside to face Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.

Sam Allardyce’s men are on a very good run, one that has led them to 15th place in the league table, meaning their status as a Premier League club is looking likely to be preserved for next season.

Palace will be without the injured Scott Dann and the ineligible Mamadou Sakho but Allardyce still has plenty of options to choose from as he selects his starting XI for the game.

Here’s the side that I think he’s going to pick:

VIDEO REVIEW | Crystal Palace 0-1 Tottenham .
In this week’s e-Crystal Palace Podcast, I review the game against Tottenham by giving you my match review, player rankings as well as my Man of the Match. Palace suffered just a second defeat in nine games as they lost out 1-0 at home. Crystal Palace held Tottenham for much of the game, battled well throughout and looked to be heading for a decent point to keep their fine run of form going but fell behind to a 30-yarder from Christian Erikson 17 minutes from time. The evening also hosted a nasty looking knee injury to Mamadou Sakho that saw the influential defender stretched off in some agony early in the second half. How much of a miss will Mamadou Sakho be? Will Palace avoid the drop? All this and more in this week’s e-Crystal Palace Podcast. Subscribe to The e-Crystal Palace Podcast for more weekly podcasts and opinion pieces from Palace fans.
