EPL HIGHLIGHT: HUDDERSFIELD 0-3 LIVERPOOL

The Reds needed a response following a run of back-to-back defeats and Jurgen Klopp got it from his players as they controlled the contest from start-to-finish. The Terriers were too passive and failed to exploit Liverpool’s defensive deficiencies, allowing the visitors to canter to the three points.

kick curled just wide after Sadio Mane brought down Town captain Jonathan Hogg.

But Wagner’s men were forced to absorb a sucker punch on the stroke of the interval when Firmino made light of an acute angle to squeeze a clever finish between Lossl and his upright.

Huddersfield still showed little inclination to operate outside their own half for too long and Mane might have done better when he headed Can’s searching cross at Lossl.

The same combination almost succeeded in the 69th minute, with Can launching the ball over the top from midfield and Mane powering a diving header wide.

Wagner’s side had hopeful penalty appeals waved away when Liverpool full-back Andrew Robertson tangled with substitute Colin Quaner.

It was then Salah’s turn to be wasteful in front of goal by prodding into the side-netting having scooted around Lossl.

That miss did not discourage the Egypt star when Kevin Friend pointed to the spot 12 minutes from time and Salah sent the Lossl the wrong way – also the direction in which Huddersfield’s season is heading.

Winless in seven, they are 14th and only a point above the relegation zone in an increasingly congested fight for survival.
