Huddersfield Town vs Liverpool: Preview and Predictions
Huddersfield Town vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 30 January 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK
Venue: The John Smith’s Stadium (Huddersfield).
Huddersfield Town could easily drop down into the relegation zone after the mid-week’s round. The Terriers have been on a poor spell of form lately and they’ll have a super tough task ending the three-loss run on Tuesday evening against the likes of Liverpool.
To make things worse for David Wagner and his men, the Reds will come into the game with an imperative of clinching the spoils after losing back-to-back ties against Swansea City (Premier League) and West Bromwich Albion (FA Cup). Jurgen Klopp did not sleep very well after shocking losses which literally came out of nowhere as Liv’pool have previously dispatched the runaway leaders Manchester City 4-3 at home.
Tottenham Hotspur are only two points away at fifth place and a potential failure at The John Smith’s Stadium could drop the Reds outside the top four which would be a disaster for Klopp. His defensive line once again revealed plenty of holes on Saturday when the Baggies netted three past Liverpool at Anfield.
Liverpool have thus shipped at least a goal in each of last six matches in all competitions which adds on the value of the 2.10 odds offered for the BTTS option here. Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio mane should have plenty of space to create on the other end, though. Since the Terries have allowed nine goals in last three matches in the Premier League. Backing the league’s top scorer Mohamed Salah to find the back of the net is thus a must-take pick at the odds of 1.90.
Huddersfield Town vs Liverpool: Head-to-head
Liverpool lead the H2H tie by only a single win, but the clash played in this term of Premier League has been the first official encounter between the two sides since 1972 when the Terriers last featured the top flight.
The Reds have won that game in late-October quite comfortable (3-0 at Anfield) with goals from Sturridge, Firmino and Wijnaldum.
Huddersfield Town vs Liverpool: Prediction
Liverpool are massive favourites to bounce back against the struggling opposition and the away win is a genuine banker at the odds of 1.33.
Nonetheless, we’ll try and catch the value in backing the Reds to win & BTTS and Mohamed Salah to score anytime at higher odds. Source
