A selection of the key facts, figures and statistics ahead of the away day at Huddersfield Town…
Another Premier League outing for Liverpool FC is fast approaching and, as per usual, we’ve been trawling the record books to bring you all the facts, figures and statistics you need to know about it.
Tuesday night will see Liverpool looking to rebound from surprise back-to-back defeats when they visit the Kirklees Stadium to face Huddersfield Town.
Here’s what caught our eye:
? Liverpool and Huddersfield Town have contested 76 competitive matches during their respective histories with Liverpool trailing overall courtesy of 28 wins to 31 defeats and 17 draws (source: 11v11.com).
? Huddersfield haven’t beaten Liverpool in either the league or cup since November 1959 however, with the subsequent 11 meetings producing eight defeats and three draws for the Terriers.
? Liverpool’s 3-0 victory at Anfield in October represented the first league fixture between the two since February 1972.
? Huddersfield are without a win in their last six Premier League matches (D3, L3) and they haven’t won at home since December 9 (2-0 vs. Brighton & Hove Albion – D2, L2 since).
? No side has scored fewer second-half goals in the Premier League this term than Huddersfield (7). They have also conceded more after the break than anyone else (30).
? This will be the 58th different ground that Liverpool have played at during the Premier League era; they’ve won at 53 of the previous 57, failing only at Bloomfield Road (L1), Bramall Lane (D2, L1), the City Ground (D3, L2) and Wembley Stadium (L1).
? Mohamed Salah‘s consolation strike in Saturday’s 3-2 FA Cup exit to West Bromwich Albion takes the Egyptian to 25 goals for the season – he’s the quickest Liverpool player to reach the milestone in more than a century (32 games).
