Jan Siewert will be hoping his Huddersfield Town side can cause an upset against Liverpool FC as the Terriers travel to Merseyside to face Jürgen Klopp’s side at Anfield on Friday 26 April; 8pm kick-off.
The Head Coach will go into Friday night’s game with the hope of causing one of the biggest upsets of the season, as Liverpool FC aim to win a first league title in 29 years.
At the time of writing, Liverpool FC currently sits at the top of the Premier League table, however, Manchester City could return to the top with a win over local rivals Manchester United on Wednesday night.
The hosts come into Friday’s game on the back of a 2-0 away victory over Neil Warnock’s Cardiff City, with midfielders Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner both finding the net in the win in South Wales.
The reverse fixture saw Jürgen Klopp’s side clinch a 1-0 victory at the John Smith’s Stadium in October 2018, with Mohamed Salah grabbing the only goal of the game that day.
Town’s last win over Liverpool FC came in November 1959 as the Terriers ran out 1-0 winners at Leeds Road.
