Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool travel to the Kirklees Stadium on Tuesday evening to take on a struggling Huddersfield side sat just two points above the relegation zone after 24 games.
The Reds have recently lost successive games to Swansea and West Brom, meaning it is all to play for between these two teams.
The Terriers haven’t beaten the Reds since 1959, but David Wagner’s men managed to beat Manchester United for the first time in 65 years earlier this season, so anything is possible.
Loris Karius is expected to start ahead of Simon Mignolet.
Former Charlton man Joe Gomez will start the game at right-back ahead of Trent Alexander-Arnold as Nathaniel Clyne continues to recover from an injury.
Club record signing Virgil van Dijk is expected to partner Joel Matip at the back. The £75m Dutchman is yet to keep a clean sheet since arriving at Anfield, conceding in games against Everton, Swansea and West Brom.
Andrew Robertson has been impressive in recent weeks and will start ahead of Alberto Moreno.
The rejuvenated Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been in excellent form recently and has given Jurgen Klopp’s side some much needed drive from midfield after the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.
Contract rebel Emre Can will start the game in a holding role where he’ll be tasked with combating the attacking talents of Aaron Mooy and Alex Pritchard.
Netherlands international Georginio Wijnaldum will start on the left hand side of Klopp’s midfield three.
Up top, arguably the league’s most scintillating attacking force in Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane could be frustrated by a deep lying Huddersfield side preventing them from running in behind, but such is their immense quality that at least one of the three should be able to make a breakthrough.
Salah has 18 goals in 23 league games so far this campaign and if the game turns out to be a cagey affair, the Egyptian will be the one his teammates turn to for inspiration.
