Liverpool will be looking to return to the top of the Premier League on Friday night when they entertain relegated and hopeless Huddersfield Town.
The Reds dropped to second following Manchester City’s 2-0 wins at Manchester United in the first game in the Premier League era that Liverpool fans had supported the Red Devils. Liverpool actually tried helping Manchester United clinch the 1994-95 title before they were successful in their assistance by beating title contenders Newcastle United the following season. So much for favours?
Jurgen Klopp can be expected to rest key players before Liverpool take on Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday night but there is simply only one result in this game.
Liverpool are an incredibly short 1.07 to win on Friday against a Huddersfield side that have lost 20 of their last 22 Premier League fixtures and have picked up only 14 points so far this season – only Derby County in 2007-08 have picked up fewer in the competition’s history.
Even with Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi and Dejan Lovren starting I expect a comfortable home win in this game. There’s no reason why Alisson won’t start in goal for the Merseyside club and the Brazilian has kept 19 clean sheets already in his debut Premier League campaign. The Terriers have been woeful going forward so expect a very one-sided game to kick off the weekend’s Premier League action.
Best bet: Liverpool to win to nil is 1.64 with Betfair
