Liverpool vs Huddersfield Premier League preview

Liverpool cruised to a 5-0 victory against Huddersfield Town to return to the top of the Premier League table in a one-sided affair between teams at contrasting ends of the table.

Naby Keita gave the Reds the lead after just 15 seconds after dispossessing a careless Jon Gorenc Stankovic almost straight from kick-off.

Sadio Mane then scored Jurgen Klopp's side's second with a close-range header, before Mohamed Salah's deft lob secured victory before half-time.

Mane then scored an almost identical header to stretch the lead to four, before Salah grabbed his second courtesy of a fine assist from Andrew Robertson.

The win moves Liverpool - albeit temporarily - above Manchester City while there is no mercy for the relegated Terriers.
