Match start: 17:30 (GMT+1)
After eight rounds together with Cardiff and Newcastle David Wagner’s team is in a relegation zone. Only in three matches they have managed to avoid loss, still without any wins.
The Terriers have already missed 17 goals, as much as Cardiff has that is taking the last place. The truth is that this not anti record indicator of this season as the fresher of elite Fulham has already missed 21 goals.
In four home matches Huddersfield hasn’t scored any goal yet. Rivals were Chelsea (0:3), Cardiff (0:0), Crystal Palace (0:1) and Tottenham (0:2). The fight was present practically in every match but the team of Wagner has clear problems if we speak about creation of moments.
Before a pause on games of the national teams the Reds are at a low ebb, without wins in 4 matches in a row. Those meetings which were played in frames of the championship ended in a draw.
The matches with direct rivals in the fight for the first place in the EPL have been ended by the football players of Liverpool also in draws. Away match against Chelsea (1:1) and home match with Manchester City (0:0) are not the worst results from the strategic point of view. But on the other hand, in both matches it was only miracle that helped to avoid loss. In London Sturridge ‘s goal in the last minutes has helped, on Anfield Marez who did not score a penalty at the end saved this team.
Having scored strictly two goals in the first three away matches of this season, the team of Jurgen Klopp began to experience recession. The only productive shot in 180 minutes against Chelsea and Napoli (0:1) in frames of the Champions League has occurred. Also we should mention the absence of shots on target with only 4 attempts to score in general.
At once four football players of the starting lineup of the club from Manchester were injured in games for the national team. Virgil van Dijk has broken ribs, Naby Keïta got muscles stretching, Mohamed Salah is complaining of a syndrome of muscular fatigue, and Sadio Mane has broken a finger.

It is strange to propose a bet on under in matches of Reds but now it is quite normal. First, already in debut matches of a season it was noticed by us that the style of team of Klopp has changed; now it is more rational. Secondly, after a pause of the national teams Liverpool stars will need certain time to recover and heal damages.
