Huddersfield vs Liverpool
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 20 October 2018
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Kirklees Stadium (Huddersfield).
The Terriers will be hosting the high flying Liverpool for this Saturday matchup.
Huddersfield is currently in the relegation zone and remains without a win. They are struggling to get a win, which they may not be lucky to get in this home fixture.
Evidently, Huddersfield will be targeting to get their first win this season in a Premier League home match this season. However, this will be extremely hard because they are facing a stronger side.
After 2 successive draws in EPL derbies against Chelsea and Manchester City, Liverpool will be coming into this one to find their way back to winning ways. In addition, Klopp’s men will seek to extend their unbeaten run this season as they travel to Huddersfield.
The international break may have served as a period for Klopp’s men to recuperate with Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, Naby Keita and Sadio Mane all expected to return from injuries. However, Keita and Mane are the only players expected to miss out with injuries.

Huddersfield vs Liverpool: Prediction
The outcome of this matchup looks rather sure. Liverpool is expected to bag the 3 points from this away fixture. Even more, they should keep a clean sheet in this matchup.
According to my analysis, the home side may not obtain anything from this game. However, they may resort to employing a defensive mode of play to avoid a devastating loss.
Liverpool will surely score at least two goals in this game. They are currently enjoying a great striking coordination and will not relent to add more goals to their total tally.
