Liverpool bounced back from recent defeats to record an excellent 3-0 win over Huddersfield Town in the Premier League on Tuesday night.
All had not been well for the Reds prior to the game, with FA Cup elimination and a lack of January business making for an unhappy support.
It was imperative that Jurgen Klopp and his players produced a big performance, and that is precisely what happened at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Klopp came up against his great friend David Wagner, but their special bond was put to one side for 90 minutes, on an important night for both managers.
Emre Can fired Liverpool in front from distance via a deflection, and it paved the way for a comfortable evening for the Reds in Yorkshire.
Seconds before half-time, Roberto Firmino made it 2-0 with a sumptuous effort from a tight angle, taking his goal tally for the season to 19.
The Reds’ most important player wheeled away in celebration…
Speaking after the game, Klopp praised his side’s pressing game and their ball retention, saying the result was “overall absolutely deserved.”
Up next for Liverpool is Sunday’s vital clash at home to Tottenham—a game that could be so pivotal in the top-four battle.
