It would appear to be a good time to play Liverpool, who are having a lot of problems defensively. The Reds who were thrashed 4-1 at Wembley against Spurs on Sunday, have only won two of their last ten matches (all competitions) and Huddersfield will come into this with plenty of confidence following their 2-1 win against 2nd placed Manchester United.
Klopp seems to be running out of ideas to tighten up his Liverpool defence and the most recent problems further emphasise the rather confusing purchase of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for £35 million. Liverpool now sit in 9th place, already 12 points adrift of Manchester City but they of course possess plenty of attacking firepower and could be boosted by the return of Georginio Wijnaldum.
Collin Quaner should return to the Huddersfield squad this weekend but Elias Kachunga is a doubt. Huddersfield showed plenty of fight and desire, as well as riding their luck at home to United last weekend which was their only premier league in their last 7 matches. Indeed, looking at results, stats and analysing performances beyond that game and it will probably look more of a freak result when we look back in a month or so and is unlikely to mark an upturn in results as a whole.
Liverpool sit second in the average shots table over their last 6 home matches and Huddersfield are the bottom of the away equivalent. If you are looking to bet on this one then I think you’d be looking at Liverpool to win by at least a couple of goals.
