Liverpool notched up a much-needed victory against Huddersfield Town in their tenth match of the season. Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum scored the goals for the Reds to hand them their fourth win of the season.

After a lacklustre first half which saw Mohamed Salah’s spot-kick saved by the Huddersfield custodian Jonas Lossl, the deadlock was broken by Sturridge, who found the back of the net in the 50th minute. It was quickly followed by a brilliant goal from Firmino in the 58th minute and the final nail in the coffin for the Terriers was delivered by Winjnaldum, who found the back of the net with a thunderous strike from close range in the 75th minute.

The Liverpool player ratings for the match are as follows.

Simon Mignolet- 8

The Belgian goalkeeper was at his best and did not let anyone go past him, saving shots from the Huddersfield forwards and ensuring three points for his side.

Joesph Gomez- 7

The English youngster once again showed that he is ready for the big stage and made his presence felt in the Liverpool defence, making it a successful outing for his side against the Terriers at Anfield.

Joel Matip- 7

The Nigerian international kept his cool in the face of relentless pressure from the opposition attackers and kept them at bay to secure a dominating win for his side.

Ragnar Klavan- 6

Pairing with Matip, Klavan made his rock-solid presence felt in the heart of the backline for the Reds, making it a successful outing for them in their own backyard.

Alberto Moreno- 6

The Spanish left-back dished out a spirited performance for his team and was brilliant with his runs up and down the left-hand side, keeping the opposition players away from threatening the goal with his ominous presence.

James Milner- 8

The experienced English international was at his best, vying for the ball in the middle of the pitch and keeping possession. It was his assist from which Firmino doubled the lead for the Reds and helped his side to a victory over the Terriers.

Jordan Henderson- 7

The captain was at the fore of a spirited performance by the Liverpool midfield and led his side to notch up their fourth win of this Premier League campaign.

Georginio Wijnaldum- 8

The ex-Newcastle United midfielder completely justified his inclusion in the team with an all-important goal in the 75th minute to seal the win for his side from an assist by Mohamed Salah.

Mohamed Salah- 6

The Egyptian forward carried his brilliant form into the match and laid down an assist for the last goal. However, his failure to hit the target from the spot kick will go against him.

Daniel Sturridge- 8

Opened the scoring with a good strike and kept the momentum going for his side before being substituted in the 74th minute.

Roberto Firmino- 8

The Brazilian was at his best and scored the second goal for his side to hand them an important victory, lifting them to the sixth spot in the Premier League.
