FC Liverpool vs Huddersfield
English Premier League
Date: Friday, 26 April 2019
Kick-Off 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool)
Liverpool midfielders Fabinho and Adam Lallana face fitness tests ahead of Friday’s match against Huddersfield.
Fabinho sustained a head injury during Sunday’s win at Cardiff, while Lallana has been out for five weeks with a muscle issue.
Central defender Dejan Lovren is expected to be available after illness.
Huddersfield’s Adama Diakhaby is in contention after a hamstring injury but Aaron Mooy is a doubt and Laurent Depoitre remains out.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: “Now it’s clear, we are one point behind [Manchester] City and if we win our next two games then it will be decided on the last game. That’s pretty special.
“We don’t only play to be champions. Yes, it’s a main target and this team is pretty close in the moment. We still have a chance and we will see what happens.
“But this will be the first time, not the last time. Just because the club is waiting a long time, that doesn’t make it any more likely.
“That we are close is already rather surprising because last year we were 25 points behind.”
Huddersfield Town head coach Jan Siewert: “I’m really excited to go there. We’re looking forward to it. We shouldn’t be stupid. We know about the quality of Liverpool. They’re favourites and we’re not at all.
“But we have possibilities and there must be an excitement, the same that I have, that my players will have – to go there and perform to the best of their ability.”
