Huddersfield will be looking to record their first victory over Liverpool since November 1959 when they welcome the Reds to the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday night. Liverpool won 3-0 when the pair met at Anfield earlier this season, but it will be their first match-up at Huddersfield since an FA Cup clash in December 1999, which Liverpool won 2-0. It will be a fascinating affair in West Yorkshire.
Huddersfield are 21/2 to collect all three points as David Wagner’s side look to bounce back from three straight Premier League defeats to Leicester City, West Ham United and Stoke City. The Terriers have dropped to 14th position in the table following a six-game winless run, but they have already beaten Manchester United at the John Smith’s Stadium in the Premier League this season.
Liverpool are 4/11 to triumph as the Reds look to recover from their shock 1-0 defeat at Swansea City in the Premier League last time out. Jurgen Klopp’s side also lost 3-2 at home to West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup on Saturday night, but will be fully focused on putting another three Premier League points on the board. The Reds are currently fourth in the top flight – six points off second-placed Man United.
The draw is available at 23/5, and it is worth noting that Huddersfield have drawn a third (4) of their home Premier League matches this season. Liverpool, meanwhile, have shared the points in three of their 12 away top-flight fixtures this term. Huddersfield have also had a lot of time to prepare for this match, but Liverpool were in FA Cup action against West Brom – losing 3-2 at Anfield – on Saturday night.
Steve Mounie is 12/1 in the first goalscorer market, while the Frenchman can be backed at 15/4 to register at any point during the 90 minutes. Mounie has scored five times in all competitions for Huddersfield during the 2017-18 campaign – including one against Birmingham in the FA Cup at the weekend.
Roberto Firmino is 15/4 in the first goalscorer market at the John Smith’s Stadium as the Brazilian looks to continue his fine form. Firmino has managed 18 goals in all competitions this term, and the Liverpool attacker can also be backed at 6/5 to register at any point during the 90 minutes of football.
Predicted Score: Huddersfield 1 - 2 Liverpool
Look out for:
The goals market has plenty of excellent value. No team has scored more Premier League away goals than Liverpool (29) this season, while Huddersfield recently conceded four at home to West Ham United. It is 9/2 that over 4.5 goals are scored, and over 5.5 goals can be backed at 11/1.
Correct score of 2-1 Liverpool can be backed at 33/4. It should be a tight affair at the John Smith’s Stadium, but the Reds will fancy their chances of returning to winning ways in the Premier League.
It’s a long shot, but:
Huddersfield beat Man United 2-1 on home soil back in October, and Wagner’s side can be backed at 28/1 to record the same scoreline against Liverpool on Tuesday night.
