Liverpool will entertain Huddersfield Town at Anfield on Friday night hoping to go back to the top of the Premier League table with a win. The Reds will look to turn on the pressure on Manchester City once again by claiming all three points at home against the Terriers. Jurgen Klopp’s men cannot afford to drop any points so we can expect another strong showing from the Merseyside club.
The Liverpool manager might opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is likely to name an unchanged side for this encounter.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Huddersfield Town
Alisson Becker will operate in goal for the Reds as he attempts to keep another shut-out at Anfield. The defensive duo of Virgil Van Dijk and Joel Matip should continue their solid partnership at the heart of the Liverpool backline.
Trent Alexander-Arnold will feature as the right-back while Andrew Robertson would aim to put on another tireless shift down the left flank.
Dejan Lovren is a significant doubt for this league fixture, but Joe Gomez should be fit enough to be named on the Liverpool bench.
The Reds have the best defensive record in the English top-flight this season so it would be a massive surprise if the Terriers manage to score against them.
Fabinho suffered a concussion in the match against Cardiff City so he might not be risked for this game.
The hardworking trio of Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita will feature at the centre of the pitch as they look to win the ball back high up the pitch and launch counter-attacks.
Wijnaldum scored a goal versus the Bluebirds, so the Dutch talent would want to repeat that feat on Friday night.
Klopp’s front three will consist of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah playing on the wide areas while Roberto Firmino looks to be effective in the ‘False 9’ position up top.
All three players are slowly coming back to form and will be a potent threat in the Huddersfield half. Both Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge will be available on the bench and might come on during the match if required.
