Units: 1/5
Odds: -139

Huddersfield’s potential demise in the Premier League might be greatly exaggerated, with the Terriers having had some difficult matches and they can boast landing a valuable point away to both Burnley and Everton.

David Wagner has experience of keeping the Yorkshire club in the top flight and will use the international break to take stock of where his team are, with Town having managed to avoid defeat in three of their eight games played.

This is effectively a bonus match for a team having their second season in the top flight, with Liverpool arriving at the John Smith’s Stadium as massive favourites and looking to get the job done painlessly ahead of a Wednesday Champions League tussle with Red Star.

It’s actually been four games without a victory for the Reds since beating Southampton 3-0 although they have played Chelsea (twice) along with games against Napoli and Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp will look forward to a warm embrace with former colleague Wagner although his Liverpool side obliterated this team twice last term and it’s hard to see the home side faring any differently this time.

Expect Trent Alexander-Arnold to make a return to the team as a more attacking full-back, while Klopp might considering giving Xherdan Shaqiri a run out after the Swiss was left on the bench against City, while Daniel Sturridge will also fancy boosting his goals haul for the season.

We’re expecting Liverpool to get out of the traps fast and kill the game as quickly as possible so that Klopp can make changes and move on to the task of beating Red Star at home. There is also the possibility of players returning back from international duty with minor knocks picked up from playing for their country.
