SORRY gameday cracker center_img How Everton could look in January under Ancelotti with new signings 1 The Terriers currently take up the final relegation place in the top flight table, having picked up just three points all season with three draws in eight matches.Liverpool are flying high at the opposite end of the table, joint with Manchester City and Chelsea in first place – or third behind their two title rivals on goal difference.However, the Reds have been struggling recently, failing to win any of their last four games with two defeats coming in that time.None of those losses have been in the Premier League, but will Huddersfield get the better of Jurgen Klopp’s side when the two teams clash on Saturday evening? Tune into talkSPORT’s full live commentary to find out…What the managers are sayingDavid Wagner (Huddersfield): “Every game is a new chance, a new opportunity; we have one on Saturday at home. We’d like to try to use it even if we know it’s one of the top teams against one of the bottom three teams, but as we know in football everything is possible. Sometimes, football writes some great stories – no-one knows what happens on Saturday.”Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool): “They play proper football, they are difficult to catch. They play different systems. So far it was unlucky. This game is a trap, a 100 per cent trap.“We are third with 20 points, they are pretty much bottom of the table. That’s why analysis is so important; if you only used the table to analyse a team, you would say ‘They don’t score a lot, they conceded a few and they are third from the bottom so obviously not a good football team.’ Then we’d have a big problem.” whoops Liverpool’s signings under Michael Edwards – will Minamino be the next big hit?
