Liverpool v Huddersfield – Vital Statistics

Liverpool take on Huddersfield Town at Anfield on Friday evening. We crunch the numbers ahead of the big game…

  • Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 13 meetings with Huddersfield in all competitions (W10 D3), since a 0-1 loss in November 1959.
  • Huddersfield haven’t scored in any of their last eight meetings with Liverpool in all competitions (D1 L7) since a 1-1 draw at Anfield in the second division in April 1962. Chris Balderstone netted for the Terriers that day.
  • Liverpool have won four of their last five top-flight home games played on Fridays, with the exception being a 1-2 defeat against Leeds in April 2001.
  • Liverpool are unbeaten in 14 Premier League games, winning each of the last six in a row. At home, they’re 38 league games without defeat, the second longest such run in Premier League history (Chelsea, 86).
  • Liverpool have already accumulated 88 points this season, their most in a Premier League campaign. In top-flight history, only in 1987-88 (90) and 1978-79 (98, converted to 3 points/win) have they gained more in a season.
  • Huddersfield are winless in their last 11 away league games (D1 L10), failing to score in eight of those. The Terriers have lost all five of their away league games vs the current top six this season by an aggregate score of 2-19.
  • 10 of Liverpool’s last 13 Premier League goals have been scored in the second half of games. Their last six in the competition have been scored after half-time, ultimately earning the Reds six points.
  • Mohamed Salah has scored in all three of his Premier League games for Liverpool on Fridays. No player has scored more for the club in the competition on Friday than Salah (3, level with Michael Owen).
  • Huddersfield’s Karlan Grant has scored in three Premier League games for Huddersfield Town and ended on the losing side in all three – only one player has ever scored in more Premier League games for a single club and lost them all (Dean Whitehead for Sunderland, four games).
  • Liverpool’s Sadio Mane has scored nine goals in his last eight Premier League home games, having netted just five in his first nine at Anfield this season.
