Jurgen Klopp’s men will aim to use this weekends fixture as a vehicle for change following a shaky start to the season. With the Reds currently sitting 9th, the abilities of the German manager have come into question as they are yet to win a Premier League fixture this month. Despite boasting a magnificent attacking line with the likes of Coutinho, Salah and Firmino, the defence has proven to be their kryptonite this season. The Reds were particularly exposed in their most recent fixture against Tottenham, losing 4-1 in a dominating performance spear-headed by Harry Kane.

Whilst Liverpool have provided some underwhelming performances this season, Huddersfield have done quite the opposite. The Terriers manager, Wagner, has masterminded a set of successful performances since being promoted to the Premier Division, including wins over Manchester United. Huddersfield have certainly impressed and stunned fans up and down the country with their attacking and positive style of football. Therefore, with Liverpool out of form and Huddersfield possessing a no fear attitude, an upset could be on the cards.
