Alisson Becker returns in goal for Liverpool's Premier League clash with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, while Jarell Quansah starts in defence.

Alisson Becker has returned in goal for Liverpool's Premier League clash with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The Brazil international has been out with a thigh issue since November's 1-1 draw with champions Manchester City but has made a quick recovery to demote Caoimhin Kelleher back down to the bench.

Alisson is one of five changes to the Liverpool side from their midweek beating of Sheffield United, as Jarell Quansah, Ryan Gravenberch, Kostas Tsimikas and Darwin Nunez have also returned to the fold.

Ibrahima Konate, Joe Gomez, Cody Gakpo and the injured Alexis Mac Allister - who has not made the squad due to the knee issue he sustained at Bramall Lane - have made way for the returning outfield quartet.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace head coach Roy Hodgson has made two alterations to the side that lost 2-0 to Bournemouth last time out, firstly bringing ex-Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne in at left-back following Tyrick Mitchell's injury.

Hodgson also hinted in his pre-game press conference that Michael Olise was unlikely to start another game in quick succession, opening up a spot for Will Hughes to come into the XI, while Joel Ward makes his 350th appearance for the Eagles in all tournaments.

Crystal Palace: Johnstone; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Clyne; Richards, Lerma; Ayew, Hughes, Schlupp; Edouard
Subs: Matthews, Tomkins, Riedewald, Ozoh, Ahamada, Olise, Franca, Ebiowei, Mateta

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Quansah, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Gravenberch, Endo, Szoboszlai; Salah, Nunez, Diaz
Subs: Kelleher, Gomez, Konate, Jones, Gakpo, Elliott, Doak, McConnell, Bradley
