Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is under immense pressure as he prepares his side for the home game against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.
The Reds have managed just one win in their last six league games, and find themselves in the ninth spot with 13 points from nine games. In their last game, they suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat at Tottenham, and the mood is far from upbeat in the Reds’ camp at the moment. Anything less than three points would mean a crisis at Anfield, and the hosts will be desperate to avoid that on Saturday. Title ambitions might be over for the hosts, but they are only three points outside the top-four.
The Terriers will come in to the game on the back of a highly-encouraging 2-1 home win over Manchester United. However, prior to the result, they were winless in their last six league games. David Wagner’s side has accumulated 12 points from their opening nine games in Premier League, and occupy a respectable 11th position on the table.
This will be the first league meeting between these two clubs since 1971-72.
