The Reds have been forced to remain patient for a breakthrough in recent matches, and Al Hain-Cole expects more of the same against Siewert's men

Liverpool will be looking to regain top spot in the Premier League when they welcome Huddersfield Town to Anfield on Friday.

Manchester City's victory over Manchester United on Wednesday saw Jurgen Klopp's men drop down to second in the league, meaning their title chances are still out of their own hands with just three games to go.

Latest odds

However, they are overwhelming 1/14 (1.07) favourites with bet365 to maintain the pressure by coming out on top against a team they have beaten 10 times and not lost against in 13 meetings since a 1-0 home defeat back in 1959.

The Terriers have lost their last seven consecutive fixtures, and are available at 25/1 (26.00) to pull off one of the shocks of the season with a victory here, or 10/1 (11.00) to even earn a draw.

Team news

Fabinho may not be risked after leaving the pitch with a head injury at Cardiff last time out, while Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren remain fitness doubts.

Adama Diakhaby, Philip Billing, Demeaco Duhaney, and Laurent Depoitre are all doubtful, while Abdelhamid Sabiri is a long-term absentee for the guests.

Late breakthrough

While they have extended their winning streak to nine in a row in all competitions, the Reds have been forced to remain patient in recent encounters against opponents digging in and defending deep.

Indeed, 10 of their last 13 league goals have not been scored until the second half of games - including each of the most recent six in a row.

Considering just six of the last 21 goals they have conceded have gone in before the break, Jan Siewert's men will back themselves to at least make the hosts work for a breakthrough on Friday.

Predictions

In fact, odds of 10/11 (1.91) look like good value on the majority of the goalmouth action taking place in the second half for Liverpool's fifth league game in six, as well as an eighth in 10 for Huddersfield.
