HUDDERSFIELD VS LIVERPOOL
| Saturday, October 20th |
Premier League | John Smith’s Stadium
4:30 PM GMT / 5:30 PM BST / 12:30 PM EST
Welcome back! After a kind and injury-free September international break, October took its toll. Liverpool return to action today with plenty of their players awaiting last minute fitness tests in order to be ready in time. Liverpool remain unbeaten in the Premier League, tied on points for top of the league. Games like these against the relegation-threatened teams are ones they’ll need to secure three points from if they want to have any chance to compete for the title.
Klopp will look to field a strong squad when they visit his old friend David Wagner, but the players he’ll have available are still unknown. Virgil van Dijk will likely get a break, along with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané This may finally be the time for the Xherdan Shaqiri/Daniel Sturridge combo to shine.
