The Reds are in third place in the Premier League table and two points behind Manchester United in the race to finish as runners up behind leaders Manchester City.
The Merseyside outfit can temporarily move ahead of Manchester United if Jurgen Klopp’s side beat Palace in South East London in Saturday’s early kick-off.
Liverpool FC have a poor record against Palace over the past three or four seasons, winning five of their last 10 meetings in the Premier League.
The Eagles famously came from 3-0 down to rescue a 3-3 draw with Liverpool FC to effectively end their title challenge under Brendan Rodgers in 2013-14.
Under Jurgen Klopp, Palace have caused Liverpool FC more problems at Anfield rather than the English capital.
However, former Liverpool FC striker Rush doesn’t believe the Reds can afford to underestimate the threat Palace will pose this weekend.
“People often underestimate Crystal Palace,” Rush told Sky Sports News.
“They have been so unlucky in their last four games. How they lost to Manchester United, I’ll never know. They were good against Tottenham and also came back strong against Chelsea.
“The last time I went to Crystal Palace they beat us. We just never know what we’re going to get when we go to Crystal Palace. Their luck is bound to change and I just hope it’s not against Liverpool on Saturday.”
Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season to secure a return to the Champions League.
The Reds will take on Premier League leaders Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals next week.
