Liverpool travel to Huddersfield on Tuesday night hoping to put a miserable week behind them. The Reds surrendered their 18-match unbeaten streak at Swansea City last Monday before defeat in the FA Cup to West Brom saw fortress Anfield fall.
A third successive defeat will be the Reds’ worst run of form for 12 months. Jürgen Klopp could do without that, especially after making it known he wanted to bring in reinforcements this month but the club have failed to make it happen.
If results go against them during the mid-week fixtures then the Merseyside club could finish the round of fixtures in fifth position and just two points ahead of sixth-placed Arsenal.
