Bet of the Day: Liverpool to keep it tight against Huddersfield
Nick Murphy | 30 January 2018
7:45pm kick-off at the John Smith’s Stadium
Liverpool will look to return to winning ways this evening after suffering back-to-back defeats against Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion.
The Reds take on a Huddersfield Town side who have won just once at home since early-November.
Jurgen Klopp’s men also boast an exceptional head-to-head record against the Terriers.
The Merseysiders won the corresponding fixture 3-0 at Anfield and have not conceded a goal against their Yorkshire opponents in their last six meetings.
Reds to run riot?
It has been a difficult 10 days for Liverpool. The Reds have been poor since beating Manchester City in a 4-3 thriller midway through the month.
Against the Terriers, the Coral News Team are expecting the visitors to return to winning ways in emphatic style. Huddersfield have shipped 18 goals against the division’s top-six so far this season.
They often get exposed against sides with a greater attacking threat and will likely struggle against the pace and power of Liverpool.
Firmino on form
Roberto Firmino has scored 18 goals so far this season. That includes a strike against Huddersfield in October and two goals in his last three games.
The Brazilian is one of Liverpool’s key players and has an even bigger role to play following the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.
