Liverpool are set to take on newly promoted side Huddersfield which is managed by Jurgen Klopp’s mate David Wagner and doing wonders since last season. The game will be played at the Anfield on Saturday, 28th October 2017 as part of Premier League which is a huge game for Liverpool and Klopp who is slowly coming under pressure after string of poor results since start of the season. The game will be kicking off starting at around 15:00 at uk time which means no TV coverage in the country.
Team News & Lineups: Liverpool need to make sure their defensive issues sorted as soon as possible otherwise the way they are leaking goals sooner or later it will have Jurgen Klopp axed as manager. Dejan Lovren came under the firing line last weekend after his horrid performance against Spurs and he might be benched with Matip and Gomez given the nod in central defense. While lack of goals from Firmino is also a worry but he still their best option upfront while Salah, Coutinho to continue in attack while Can, Henderson and Wijnaldum to start in central midfield.
It will be a remarkable season for Huddersfield if they can finish the season on their current league position 11th but bigger test awaits in the remaining of the season. However one has to give credit to Wagner as he sits just 1 point behind Liverpool in the table after taking over as Huddersfield manager. He was assistant to Klopp at the start of his anfield tenure.
This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Saturday. Liverpool are still without Adam Lallana who is their creative spark while Sadio Mane might be fit to get a place on the bench.
Match Predictions: Liverpool have been so unpredictable so far this season. They were installed as one of the favourites to win the league this season however 2 wins in the last 9 matches in all competitions has put their title challenge in jeopardy. But Jurgen Klopp’s teams often produce one of the those results where they blow away teams and look menacing and this is one of those games. Huddersfield will be confident after their historic 2-1 win over England’s most successful club United over the past weekend and they might take the game to Liverpool pretty much playing right into their hands. I am going with a comfortable 3-1 win for Liverpool in this one.
