The Premier League is back, and with that comes an intriguing set of fixtures – including Huddersfield Town vs Liverpool. Both clubs are in need of a victory for very different reasons ahead of this game, and it’ll be intriguing to see how they match up – especially after the international break. You’d think that the result would be a given purely based on what both teams have been able to produce throughout the course of the campaign thus far, but that’s the beautiful thing about the top flight of English football: you just never know what’s going to happen next.

Huddersfield

Huddersfield’s ability to remain in the Premier League last season was praised by many, but those same people are now starting to realise that the Terriers are amongst the favourites to drop back down into the Championship. They just don’t seem to possess the quality necessary to compete at this level on a consistent basis, which is going to make the next few months in the lead up to January very interesting. If they can keep within touching distance of the teams above them and then bring in some big names in the transfer window, they may have a shot.

Team News

Tom Smith, Abdelhamid Sabiri, Christopher Schindler, Aaron Mooy, Ramadan Sobhi and Danny Williams are all rumoured to return for the home side.

Liverpool

Regardless of their recent form Liverpool are still easily one of the best teams in England, and arguably the whole of Europe. Jurgen Klopp has been able to assemble a really strong squad, and it seems as if they’re on the verge of doing something great – but they just need to find that consistency both in the Premier League and outside of it. Winning the title should be viewed as their main priority and it seems as if that is indeed the case, but they need to be winning games like this in order to keep up the pace.

Team News

Virgil van Dijk could prove to be the big miss for Liverpool after aggravating his rib injury during the international break.

Factors to Consider

  • The game will be played at Huddersfield’s John Smith’s Stadium.
  • Huddersfield lead Liverpool 31-29 in the overall head to head standings with 17 draws.
  • In their last meeting back in January, Liverpool won 3-0.
  • Huddersfield have drawn two and lost four of their last six games.
  • Liverpool have won two, drawn two and lost two of their last six games.

Conclusion

Huddersfield have been creating chances lately which is something that has flown under the radar, but that certainly doesn’t feel like enough of a reason to back them here. Liverpool have struggled lately and this should be the perfect game to get them back into the winning column, even if it isn’t particularly convincing. The home side should, and probably will come straight at the Reds but likely to no avail, but we think they’ll hold out defensively until late in the game. For an official prediction, we’ll go with 1-0 Liverpool.
