Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Daniel Sturridge. The striker was a surprise omission from Gareth Southgate’s England squad after an impressive start to the campaign. Sturridge is a viable alternative to Roberto Firmino and will get minutes against the Terriers. The ex-Chelsea man is an attractive 19/5 to get the final goal of the contest against a backline that is likely to have had a busy opening hour of defending.

One to Watch: Naby Keita

The Guinean has been gently eased in to the fold after his summer move from RB Leipzig. The all-action midfielder was heralded upon his arrival as one of the most promising players on the continent, receiving similarly positive plaudits in Germany as one of the finest talents in the division. So far, Keita has only shown flashes of his ability but should see plenty of the ball against a struggling Huddersfield. The 23-year-old will be given licence to get forward and link up with the Reds’ deadly front three, and he can be found at 3/1 to net anytime and get his first goal for the club.

Huddersfield Town sit in 18th place, a single point above bottom club Cardiff and with centre-backs Mathias Jorgensen and Christopher Schindler two of only four scorers so far. 

Isaac Mbenza may be afforded a start in a two-pronged attack with Laurent Depoitre after arriving on loan from Montpellier. The Belgian youngster hit double figures in all competitions for the French club last year.

Travelling party Liverpool will have to make one enforced change from the team who were held to a goalless draw with Manchester City before the international double-header.

Veteran James Milner limped off and will likely be replaced by Naby Keita. Trent Alexander-Arnold should also return to the side, with Joe Gomez moving from right-back to a more central role alongside the towering presence of Virgil van Dijk.

Huddersfield vs Liverpool Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Is it Roberto Firmino’s turn to shine from Liverpool’s front three?

After their momentous victory over Reading in the 2016-17 Championship playoff final, Huddersfield Town were the bookmakers favourites for immediate relegation but impressively managed to survive by four points ahead of the likes of Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion. History suggests any promoted club that retains their Premier League status tend to struggle in their second season in the top flight, and Huddersfield have maintained this trend with no wins from their opening eight matches.

Indeed, David Wagner’s side have the joint worst goal difference in the division alongside bottom side Cardiff on -13 and have toiled at both ends of the pitch. Meanwhile, visitors Liverpool are in an unusual run of form and without a victory since the visit of Southampton in mid-September. Despite this, the Reds sit in third, alongside Manchester City and Chelsea on 20 points, and the three squads are expected to battle it out in what is shaping up to be one of the most exciting title races in recent years.

Football predictions for this encounter highlight the home side at 12/1 to clinch their first success of the campaign. Unfortunately for Huddersfield, they are coming up against a hungry Liverpool team eager to get back to winning ways, so damage limitation may come in to play.

Additional football predictions for this duel show the 18-time English champions at 2/7 to claim the spoils. It is only a matter of time before Klopp’s men find their groove again and the trip to West Yorkshire to face a leaky rearguard presents the perfect opportunity to bounce back.

The draw is 17/4 and Huddersfield’s best hope of taking anything from the meeting. This outcome would be reliant on all 14 players carrying out Wagner’s instructions to the last letter and Liverpool’s front six fluffing their lines.

Laurent Depoitre is available at 12/1 to open the scoring in this Premier League preview. The big Belgian is yet to get off the mark this term but troubled the very best defences in the division last year, scoring home and away against Chelsea and notching a historic winner against Manchester United.

Mohamed Salah is the 5/2 favourite to register first in this instalment of Premier League predictions. The Egyptian has undoubtedly been given less freedom, with opposing defences now doubling up on the hotshot, but he is still making chances for himself and his numbers are sure to improve over the coming months. Salah has occupied many sections of the football betting predictions markets and is 9/4 to bag himself two goals or more.

Predicted Score: Huddersfield 0 - 3 Liverpool
