Huddersfield v Liverpool Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
October 16, 2018
John Smith's Stadium - Premier League
Old friends David Wagner and Jurgen Klopp meet this weekend, as high flying Liverpool head to West Yorkshire to face Huddersfield.
Liverpool beat The Terriers 3-0 home and away last season, as The Reds gave Hudddersfield a tough welcome on their debut Premier League season.
Brazilian international Roberto Firmino was the key man for Klopp's team, scoring in both games.
Huddersfield should be able to welcome back Aaron Mooy, Chris Schindler and Phillip Billing from injury, but Tommy Smith, Abdelhamid Sabiri, Ramadan Sobhi and Danny Williams are not yet match fit.
Liverpool look to have some very positive news on the injury front, with Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk all cleared to play after picking up injuries on international duty, with James Milner and Adam Lallana both back in training.
Huddersfield v Liverpool Preview and Predictions
Wagner's team have not won a game this season, with just three draws to their name, causing real concern of a bout of second season syndrome for Huddersfield.
The manager has kept faith with the majority of players that secured their Premier League survival last season, but they are struggling so far in 2018-19.
Liverpool are unlikely to show them any mercy, with Klopp's side unbeaten in Premier League action this season, and showing Manchester City that they intend to challenge them again this season.
They are without a win in their last four games in all competitions, and Klopp will want to make a statement away at Huddersfield, with an away win at 2/7.
They scored three goals in both games against them last season, and Liverpool look as much of a goal scoring threat as ever, netting 15 Premier League goals so far.
With that in mind, a Liverpool to win and over 1.5 total goals scored bet brings in some extra profit, priced at 8/15.
Liverpool to win 2-0 at 5/1
The Reds will be irritated by their defeat in the Champions League to Napoli, and EFL Cup exit at the hands of rivals Chelsea, and Klopp will want them back on track as soon as possible. This is almost an ideal game to do that, with Huddersfield not looking likely to turn things around just yet.
Mo Salah to score anytime at 8/11
Salah is struggling to hit his record breaking heights of 2017-18, but Klopp retains a huge amount of faith in the Egyptian international, and rightly so. Fortune does not seem to be going in Salah's way recently, and he needs a game to boost his confidence, and this tie could be it.
