Before going into this Friday’s Premier League fixture, both teams have been involved in other games. Let’s check out the latest results that they have been getting to have a clear idea about their current form.
Recent form in all competition (last five matches): WWWWW
Jurgen Klopp still continuing his team’s recent winning run as they’re last fixtures have resulted in nothing but wins. The Reds’ last league match was a 2-0 away victory against struggling Cardiff City.
Despite having midweek Champions League distraction, Liverpool remain keen on getting maximum points on Friday. Battling against the already relegated Huddersfield looks easy on paper, but can still be tricky.
Recent form in all competition (last five matches) :LLLLL
In contrast with their opponent’s form, Huddersfield have been really poor of late. Jan Siewert’s side have been struggling to collect any wins or even draws.
Their latest league match was a disappointing 2-1 defeat against Watford. Getting something against Liverpool will be a dream for The Terriers, especially witnessing their recent results.
The Reds will still be without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for next Friday tie as he is recovering from the summer. However, there’s also doubts regarding Lallana, Dejan Lovren along with Fabinho.
Champions League commitment won’t stop Liverpool from pushing for three points. Which means that The Reds are set to keep starting Salah, Firmino and Mane as they look for goals against The Terriers.
Siewert must prepare his team this Friday without Sabiri who is still injured. Huddersfield also have some concerns for Depoitre, Diakhabbi, Hog.
Kachunga, Grant and Lowe are set to be leading the line for The Terriers up front. At the back, Schindler along with Kongolo continue their recent partnership in helping their team strong defensively.
Head to Head Records:
The last few meetings between both teams have all been going into Liverpool’s favor as they won all of them.
However, their latest match up October 20, 2018 was a hard fought battle which ended in a draw.
Playing at Anfield will provide that needed support for Liverpool players. Grabbing all three points are a must for The Reds as it helps them in maintaining that potential title race.
Huddersfield themselves are also keen on not letting the players do whatever they like. Liverpool will once again be favorite, but they must not underestimate The Terriers’ players.
Final Score: 2-0
