The Terriers go into this game at home against the Reds after just one win in seven league matches including two defeats on the bounce against West Ham and Stoke City.

“Yes we have seen Liverpool beaten two times in a row and they look vulnerable at the minute. Does that mean we will be successful? No. Does it mean we will have a chance?

“Absolutely especially at home at the John Smiths Stadium. David Wagner said.

“If there is a chance then we will grab it with both sides.” he added.


Wagner admitted that he and Klopp are good friends but stated that nothing would get in the way of getting a result tomorrow evening.

“It is different, and it is special. We have a relationship and a friendship which is extraordinary.

“Tomorrow night at eight o’clock, this does not matter. It is all about Huddersfield against Liverpool and we are both in a position where we both need the points.

“Liverpool can have all of the points in the Premier League but not tomorrow night. We will try our hardest and fight for every yard tomorrow to cause them the biggest problem that they can have.”

The Yorkshire club are known to have a much loved fan base in the Premier League, Wagner said he wants more of the same in order to get a result against Liverpool.

“The atmosphere in the stadium has to be extraordinary that we can get the result which we will work to get.” The Huddersfield Town manager said.

Wagner admitted that Klopp and himself do talk all things football but tomorrow, is a different matter.

“Of course we have spoken to each other about the premier league, about opponents and individual players.

“It is it is the natural that if you are best friends with someone in the same country and division that you talk, but not in this game.”

Ahead of such a big game at home tomorrow evening, David Wagner spoke to the press about the injury list and also new signing Alex Pritchard.

“Terence looks okay, he will train today and Danny is a doubt after his a doubt, we will see how the treatment today and tomorrow is with him.

“Apart from that, then I think we have a big enough squad to choose from tomorrow night.

“Unfortunately Alex was cup tied for the Birmingham City match and we used this time to conduct fitness tests and he has shown that he is fit enough to play a part in our squad.

“ He will add something to our game and if we need it then we will definitely use him.”
