Huddersfield Town find themselves amidst a terrible run of results and things don’t get easier for them as they host Liverpool at The John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday evening.
The Terriers are without a win in their last six league games and have lost their last three. From the comfort of mid-table, they have slipped down to the 14th spot. With 24 points on board, the hosts sit only two points above the relegation zone.
On Saturday, the Terriers could only manage a 1-1 home draw against Championship side Birmingham City in FA Cup.
Liverpool will arrive in the game on the back of two straight defeats in all competitions. The excitement of the win over Manchester City seemed to have evaporated now, and the Merseysiders will be keen to control the damage on Tuesday.
In their last league game, the Reds lost 1-0 at bottom-side Swansea City, and on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp’s suffered another shock as they lost 2-3 at Anfield to second-from-bottom West Bromwich Albion in FA Cup.
Liverpool occupy the fourth spot with 47 points, but they have Tottenham and Arsenal close in their pursuit. A failure to pick up three points against the Terriers could see them lose their top-four position during the midweek.
Both sides have played at Anfield earlier this season, and that game ended in a 3-0 win for the Reds.
