Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says his side is fully aware of how dangerous Crystal Palace can be away from home.
Alan Pardew's men are still without a win in May but Rodgers insists the Reds will not underestimate the Glaziers on Saturday.
"They're a very, very good side, particularly away from home," Rodgers said.
"We'll be prepared well for the qualities they have. They are very good on the counter-attack, with some very good players.
"I think Alan [Pardew] has brought in a real offensive side to their game. He's done exceptionally well since he's gone in there, but it's not a surprise to me because he did exceptionally well at Newcastle United.
"Sometimes it's only when people leave that you can really analyse and see the job they did. I thought he did an incredible job - if you think, he took them to fifth in the league with the resources and everything he was working with.
"He obviously decided to move back to London - he's a London man and Crystal Palace is his club. I think he's gone in there and revitalised them, made them more aggressive in attack, maximised what he's getting out of the players and has done a wonderful job.
"We're well aware of the threat and we know it'll be a tough game."
Asked about Daniel Sturridge's fitness level, the Northern Irishman explained: "His operation went well.
"It's obviously going to be after pre-season when we get him back but hopefully we can get him back and firing like he was last year.
"We hope we've got to the bottom of it. This is an injury that has been looked at and the medics have said it's maybe been the cause of a lot of his [injury] problems.
"Once he's back on fire there are not many players who are better than Sturridge. He's super-fast, has a great touch and balance and he's strong."
