This coming Saturday Liverpool face Huddersfield at the Kirklees Stadium and Huddersfield will want to avoid becoming the seventh team that the Reds will have beaten this season.

It’s true that right now we are not in the best of form having only won one game out of our last five but Huddersfield aren’t exactly tough opposition at the minute with them not even recording a win in the 2018/19 Premier League campaign so far.

Both teams are also suffering from an injury crisis at the minute with several players from either sides being assessed this week and it will be touch and go if some of them will actually be in the squad tomorrow. Like I said Huddersfield are without a win and currently sit 18th in the table and with Liverpool coming out on top in both game last season, they will be wanting to right their wrongs and come away with a much need three points.

One thing Huddersfield can benefit from is that while in charge at Liverpool Jurgen Klopp does not have the best record against bottom three sides. Last season he played six games against the bottom three but only walked away with two wins so the Terriers will be looking to follow suit.

Huddersfield headed into the International break with a draw away at Burnley.

As you can see they had plenty of chances with a total of 19 shots on goal but only two of them ended up on target meaning that they are getting in all the right places but are struggling to convert their chances. You can also see that dominated the possession in that game with 69% of it and had a total of 581 passes completed meaning they like to keep hold of the ball. I doubt they will have the time and space to do that this weekend though.

The Manager – David Wagner

It will be friend vs friend rather than enemy vs enemy tomorrow evening when Klopp and Wagner stand in opposite dugouts, having known eachother for a very long time it will be a battle between the two as to who comes out on top.

Wagner took over as Huddersfield manager in 2015 having spent his entire playing and managerial career in Germany with clubs like Schalke, Mainz and Borussia Dortmund II. In the two times he has faced Liverpool he has not come away with any points so that’s two points to Klopp I suppose.

The fans and players seem to really like the German and he has done a terrific job in getting them into the Premier League and keeping them there. This season has not been the best of starts for him and his team but I am sure he’ll keep them in the right track.

 

Now like I mentioned earlier on in the article, Huddersfield are also assessing the fitness of some of their players so my predicted XI may be a bit off when it comes to Saturday but below is how I think Huddersfield will line up.

 

I think if Mooy is fit to play on Saturday he will be a key player for their midfield as well as Pritchard and Van La Parra. They always seem to link up well and can create plenty of chances for the strikers so that is something to look out for during the game.
