Liverpool vs Huddersfield Match Preview
At the time of writing, Liverpool sit top of the table in what is one of the most pulsating title races in the Premier League era. However, with Manchester City heading to Manchester United in midweek, the Reds could have dropped to second place by the time this game comes around and with just three games remaining, any slip-ups against Huddersfield, Newcastle or Wolves are likely to hand the Citizens the title.
The Merseysiders don’t look like slipping up at the moment though, in either the Champions League or the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp’s men have won their last nine matches in all competitions to remain in touching distance of Pep Guardiola’s side and to progress through to the Champions League semi-finals and after a hard-fought 0-2 win over Cardiff last weekend they’re expected to pick up another three points here at 1/14 with Bet365.
Huddersfield Town have endured one of the toughest seasons in Premier League history this time around. After managing to avoid relegation in dramatic circumstances last season, the Terriers have struggled at the very foot of the table this time around, with German boss David Wagner having been sacked by the club half way through the campaign and his replacement, fellow countryman Jan Siewert, not fairing any better.
Sometimes following confirmed relegations from the Premier League teams can begin to play with more freedom and confidence but that has not been the case for the West Yorkshire side. They make the trip to Anfield on Friday night with the signs looking pretty grim – they’ve not beaten the Reds in a competitive fixture since 1959 and they have lost their last nine consecutive Premier League games, making an away win at 14/1 look unlikely with Bet365.
2-0 has been the go-to score in Liverpool games of late. The Reds have won their last two home games at Anfield, against both Porto and Chelsea, by that scoreline whilst also winning 0-2 at Cardiff City last weekend. Given that Jurgen Klopp will want his team to conserve some energy ahead of the first leg of their Champions League tie with Barcelona next week we can see them going into a comfortable two goal lead and closing the game out for that same scoreline again at 17/2 with Bet365.
Given that Huddersfield are likely to sit very deep and attempt to frustrate the Liverpool attack in this game, it may take some time for the goals to come, but the Reds have learned to remain patient in recent weeks. They were being held to draws at half-time by the likes of Southampton, Cardiff and Chelsea in recent Premier League games before kicking on to secure the points in the second half. The most goals in the second half bet is priced at 10/11 with William Hill.
