Liverpool will be aiming to keep their winning form going when they face Huddersfield Town at Anfield tomorrow night.
Liverpool are currently second in the table, a point behind leaders Manchester City, with three games to go.
Hence, the surge towards coronation is not in the Reds’ hands. However, there is only a difference of one point, meaning Jurgen Klopp’s men have to keep winning their remaining league games to continue putting pressure on the Cityzens.
With the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Barcelona on Wednesday night, Liverpool will have enough time to recover for that after Friday’s game.
Thus, as Klopp suggested in his presser, we can expect a full-throttle line-up for a vital clash against the Terriers.
In terms of injury updates, Fabinho, who was substituted off because of a concussion against Cardiff, may not be risked for this game. Adam Lallana has been a doubt for some time now, while Dejan Lovren trained fully.
Here’s how we think Klopp may line his team up against Huddersfield.
GK - Alisson
He is Liverpool’s first-choice keeper and should be in goal against Huddersfield.
RB - Trent Alexander-Arnold
The youngster has been in decent form of late. He deserves to keep his place in the team.
CB - Joel Matip
Despite the return of Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren back to full fitness, Matip has done well in the past couple of months and should keep his place in the team.
CB - Virgil van Dijk
The PFA Player of the Year is an irreplaceable cog in the team. He starts every game for the Reds.
LB - Andy Robertson
The Scotland international is Liverpool’s number one left-back. He is more than certain to start against Huddersfield.
CDM - Georginio Wijnaldum
Since Fabinho may not be risked for this game, Wijnaldum could continue to deputise in defensive midfield, just like he did against Cardiff.
RCM - Jordan Henderson
The captain has been fantastic in the advanced midfield role. He has cemented his place in the team now.
LCM - Naby Keita
The ever-improving Keita has done enough to mark his place down in the team.
RW - Mohamed Salah
The Egyptian star has been in great form of late, which may not be good news for the Huddersfield defenders.
FWD - Roberto Firmino
The Brazil international is one of the first names on the teamsheet, chiefly because he runs the show for Liverpool from the front with and without possession.
LW - Sadio Mane
Mane is another Liverpool forward who has been in great form for some time now. Huddersfield will have to play exceedingly well to stop him.
