Liverpool will be hoping to continue with their undefeated start to the season in the Premier League when they travel away to Huddersfield on Saturday. Jurgen Klopp’s side has got their season off to almost a perfect start and will look to continue their undefeated streak when they travel to Huddersfield on Saturday.
Let’s look at the formation, as well as the personnel Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is most likely to opt for – the 4-4-3.
Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker
In goal will be the summer signing from AS Roma. Alisson Becker is a certainty to start against Huddersfield on Saturday in the late kick-0ff. The Brazilian has looked calm and composed in the opening matches of the Premier League so far, barring that slip-up against Leicester City.
Defenders: Andrew Robertson, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Trent Alexander Arnold
Robertson has gone from strength to strength to become a regular figure in Liverpool’s starting lineup.
His understanding of when to go on the overlapping runs and when to fall back and defend was the feature of his game-play in the previous campaign as well as in all the matches played so far. He will be rightfully taking his place at the left-back position for Liverpool against Huddersfield.
Since arriving from Southampton for a record-breaking fee which made him the most expensive defender of all-time, Virgil van Dijk has completely turned the fortunes of Liverpool’s back-line.
Joe Gomez has had a tremendous start to the season and has made that centre-back position his own.
He is likely to retain his place against Huddersfield following his good showing in all the matches for Liverpool so far. He will look to continue his good work when he plays against Huddersfield on Saturday.
In the absence of Nathaniel Clyne, Alexander-Arnold has cemented his place in Liverpool’s starting XI by virtue of his consistent showings for the club. He is likely to start at the right back position for Liverpool against Huddersfield on Saturday.
Midfielders: James Milner, Jordan Henderson Georgino Wijnaldum
James Milner has impressed in all the matches in which he has played so far. Once again, he will be expected to control the midfield with his all-round game-play.
Georginio Wijnaldum is likely to start on the right-hand side of midfield for Liverpool away at Huddersfield. He has been a consistent performer for Liverpool in the past whenever he has been given the opportunity. He has been in excellent form for both club and country and will be looking to build on from his excellent midweek performance against Germany in the Premier League as well.
Attackers – Xherdan Shaqiri, Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge
The Brazilian is one of the most diligent players in Liverpool’s squad, with an intense work-rate that is difficult to rival.
His awareness of the game and ability to be in the right position at the right time makes him stand apart from his counterparts. Roberto Firmino is without a doubt the lynch-pin of the Liverpool front three. He for sure will be starting against Huddersfield on Saturday.
Daniel Sturridge is expected to start against Huddersfield on Saturday in place of Mohammad Salah following an injury concern to Mohamed Salah while playing for his country.
