Landmark goal for Daniel Sturridge as Liverpool beat Huddersfield

Jurgen Klopp Liverpool Huddersfield

Mohamed Salah missed a first-half penalty but that was largely forgotten by the end as Juergen Klopp's side produced a vibrant second-half display with Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum on target after Sturridge broke the deadlock. You could see immediately in the second half really, we had more players between the decisive lines and so it was more hard for Huddersfield to defend.

The 4-0 humiliation against Tottenham last weekend brought criticism raining down on the Reds boss and his players but a return to winning ways alleviated some of the pressure.

On an afternoon where no one really stood out, the most important moment of the match was undoubtedly Sturridge's breakthrough goal.

Entering today, Liverpool had conceded 16 goals in their last nine games, making it their worst defensive run from the beginning of a season since 1964.

"We had more chances, but it's a big relief to be honest because the pressure was there".

"It was not too hard to fix at half time".

Aaron Mooy has been directly involved in 10 league goals for Huddersfield in 2017 (four goals, six assists). We had more players between the decisive lines and it was more hard for Huddersfield to defend.

"I am disappointed because the players have given good effort and worked hard".

After Joel Matip came close to converting from another set-piece opportunity, Wijnaldum rounded out the scoring with a rising, right-footed shot that flashed high into the top-right corner.

Klopp went up against fellow German David Wagner for the first time in a competitive fixture, with the two putting their strong friendship to one side for 90 minutes.

The result had looked far from secure after a terrible first half, watched by the president of club owners Fenway Sports Group Mike Gordon who had flown in for the game.
