    Easy Ride for Liverpool

    Easy Ride for Liverpool

    We are into the final three rounds of the Premier League season and this weekend the matches kick-off a day earlier than usual as Liverpool entertain Huddersfield Town at Anfield on Friday night.

    There is only one team with something to play for in this game and that is the home side. Liverpool know they need to win this match, regardless of the outcome in the Manchester derby but they could be playing to open a 5 point gap or a 2 point depending on that result.

    Huddersfield Town have known their fate for some time and they will be playing Championship football next season.

    Liverpool have just three games left and they could not have come into this fixture in better form. Trends show they have won each of their last nine games in all competitions. There have been six wins in the Premier League and three wins in the Champions League.

    Three of the six wins in the Premier League have come at home and Liverpool are undefeated in their last thirty-eight home matches, which is the equivalent of an entire season.  The Reds have scored 2 or more goals in each of their last five home league games and both teams have scored in five of their last eight.

    You must go back to the 7th October 2018 to find the last time Liverpool failed to score at home in the league and that was against rivals Manchester City.

    Huddersfield Town have been relegated and have nothing but pride left to play for this season. A trip to Liverpool is the last thing they want and form is very poor.  Trends show Huddersfield Town have lost each of their last seven Premier League games.

    In fact, they have won only one of their last twenty-three matches in all competitions and it is little wonder they are rooted to the bottom of the table.

    Huddersfield Town have picked up just a single point in their last eleven away league matches. They have failed to score in seven of their last eight on the road and have conceded 2 or more goals in five of their last six.

    Team news and Liverpool could have every player available for this game. Joe Gomez is back in contention but Jurgen Klopp may not want to disrupt what has been a solid back four in recent matches. Klopp may be tempted to rotate in central midfield.

    Huddersfield Town are sweating on the fitness of Philip Billing and Laurent Depoitre, both of which could feature. Adama Diakhaby is struggling with a hamstring injury and is unlikely to be involved.

    Playing a team which has nothing left to play for can be dangerous but Huddersfield Town have been so poor, there is very little to worry Liverpool. Klopp’s team should take maximum points with little difficulty.
