The Reds have an opportunity to return to winning ways when they take on David Wagner's side in West Yorkshire

Liverpool will attempt to keep the pressure on Manchester City and Chelsea at the top of the Premier League when they face Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp's side are currently unbeaten in the division after eight games, tallying six victories and two draws, but their form had dipped somewhat ahead of the international break.

The Reds have not tasted success in their last four matches in all competitions, so they will be desperate to return to winning ways at John Smith's Stadium, particularly with Champions League action on the horizon.

Huddersfield, meanwhile, find themselves at the opposite end of the table in the drop zone, without a single win to their name.

Match Preview


Jurgen Klopp Liverpool 29092018

Liverpool have been saddled with an injury crisis ahead of their return to Premier League action on Saturday and Klopp will have to reshuffle his deck as they search for their first win in nearly a month.

The Reds have not won a game since beating Southampton 3-0 in September, suffering defeats against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup and Napoli in the Champions League, as well as drawing with the Blues and Man City in the Premier League. However, despite their dip in form, they remain well in the mix at the top half of the table and will be keen to maintain that status.

International commitments have taken their toll on some of Liverpool's key players, including Mane, Van Dijk and Keita, who are major concerns ahead of Saturday's showdown in West Yorkshire.

That trio join the likes of Milner and Oxlade-Chamberlain on the sidelines, meaning Klopp will have to turn to fringe players for the upcoming series of fixtures, which includes a Champions League tie against Red Star Belgrade.

On Saturday, Klopp comes up against a familiar face in Wagner and, interestingly, the Huddersfield boss is highly skeptical about the extent to which Liverpool will be shorn of their best players.

“I have known Jurgen long enough, I know he loves to use smoke screens," Wagner said of his compatriot. "I expect that most of his players will be available.

"I have known him long enough and he likes to moan after the international break!"
