Liverpool, despite a tricky set of fixtures, have maintained their unbeaten status in Premier League prior to the international break and are looking forward to resuming their title challenge once it restarts this weekend.
The Reds will travel to John Smith’s Stadium to contest Huddersfield Town who retained their top-flight status last season but are yet to grab a win this term and placed 18th in Premier League standings. David Wagner, the Terriers boss, is a friend of Jurgen Klopp but unlikely to be in a friendly mood on Saturday evening in order to ease the pressure off his men for the time being.
