Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Huddersfield Town

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Friday's Premier League showdown with relegated Huddersfield Town at Anfield.

Liverpool host Huddersfield Town at Anfield on Friday night looking to make it 10 wins in a row across all competitions and maintain their charge towards a possible Premier League title.

Sunday's 2-0 win at Cardiff City saw Jurgen Klopp's side regain top spot in the table, although their hopes of ending the campaign in that position could rest on Manchester City's result at Manchester United on Wednesday night.

Liverpool have nevertheless already set a club record for number of points in a single Premier League campaign and will be firm favourites to overcome relegated Huddersfield in their final domestic game before the Champions League semi-final first leg against Barcelona.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for the Merseysiders.



LIVERPOOL'S INJURY LIST

Fabinho was on the field for just one minute against Cardiff, being forced off moments after coming on as a sub due to a head injury. Klopp has confirmed it is nothing serious, but concussion precautions could keep him sidelined until the Barcelona first leg.
