The Reds may have some injury concerns but we are backing them to record another win when they visit the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday afternoon

Liverpool travel to the John Smith's Stadium this weekend looking to inflict more woe on Huddersfield.

The Terriers have failed to win any of their last 12 Premier League matches and that winless run seems unlikely to end this weekend against one of the title challengers.

Jurgen Klopp's men beat Huddersfield 3-0 both home and away last season and will be confident of recording their seventh league win of the season on Saturday.

Latest odds

Huddersfield are offered at 10/1 (11.00) by 888Sport to record their first league success since April. Liverpool for their part are priced at 27/100 (1.27) with the draw available at 22/5 (5.40).

Team news

Sadio Mane broke his thumb while on international duty and is a doubt for the game, as is Virgil Van Dijk who fractured his rib while with the Netherlands. Naby Keita picked up a thigh injury with Guinea and is unlikely to feature, whilst James Milner is still missing for the Merseysiders.

Defender Terrence Kongolo is out for the hosts. 

Preview

Huddersfield's start to the season has done little to allay fears that the West Yorkshire outfit could be serious contenders for relegation.

David Wagner's side have already suffered heavy defeats at the hands of Manchester City and Chelsea, who sit first and second respectively, and the visit of third-placed Liverpool could spell more problems.

The Terriers conceded six goals to City as well three against both Chelsea and Leicester, meaning after eight games they have the second leakiest defence in the Premier League.

Furthermore, Huddersfield have not scored a goal at home since April and their run of six home matches without netting will be of particular concern to the manager.

Tips and predictions

Over 2.5 goals is offered at 81/100 (1.81), but of more interest should be backing Liverpool to win to nil at  21/25 (1.84).

Huddersfield have lost eight home league matches in 2018, with the last seven of those defeats coming without scoring. If Liverpool look likely to win the game on Saturday, backing them to do so and keep a clean sheet makes plenty of sense.
