Manchester City’s win against Manchester United last night makes the chance of Liverpool winning the Premier League far less likely, but the Reds will want to ensure the title race goes down to the final day.
They will be able to put pressure on Pep Guardiola’s side by winning against Huddersfield tomorrow night. It should be a straightforward win against the already relegated Terriers but Jurgen Klopp will want 100% focus from his players to get the job done.
The Reds boss could be without Fabinho after the Brazilian sustained a head injury during the 2-0 win over Cardiff last Sunday. The midfielder had to be substituted after coming on for Naby Keita in the second half.
Dejan Lovren (illness) and Adam Lallana (muscular) were both not in the squad for last week’s trip to Wales, but both players are believed to be fit for selection following spells out.
Liverpool’s Predicted XI To Face Huddersfield:
Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Henderson, Keita, Salah, Firmino, Mane
Huddersfield have doubts over three players. Striker Laurent Depoitre missed the 2-1 defeat to Watford last weekend with a foot injury, while Jonathan Hogg sustained a knock during the game.
Adam Diakhaby is closing in on a return to first-team action following a hamstring problem but is unlikely to start tomorrow.
Huddersfield’s Predicted XI:
Lossl, Smith, Schindler, Kongolo, Durm, Kachunga, Bacuna, Mbenza, Lowe, Mooy, Grant
The bookies have this one down as a home banker with Liverpool 1/12 at Betfred. A draw is currently 14/1 with Bet 365 while a victory for Huddersfield is 45/1 at Betfair.
