Michael Owen names two Liverpool FC players who will ‘make the difference’ at Huddersfield
The Liverpool FC legend believes Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah will prove the difference against Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night
Michael Owen believes Liverpool FC duo Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah will prove the difference at Huddersfield Town on Tuesday night.
The Reds are in fourth place in the Premier League table and two points clear of their closest challengers for a top-four spot, Tottenham Hotspur.
Liverpool FC have lost their last two games in all competitions to put a halt to their impressive 18-game unbeaten run in the Premier League.
Swansea City were surprise 1-0 winners against Jurgen Klopp’s side at the Liberty Stadium before West Brom sprung a surprise with a 3-2 win at Anfield in the FA Cup fourth round.
However, Firmino and Salah have remained in decent form after both got on the score sheet in Liverpool FC’s shock FA Cup exit at the hands of the Baggies.
Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is backing both Firmino and Salah to make the difference against Huddersfield in their return to Premier League action on Tuesday night.
“Mo Salah has 18 goals in 23 Premier League games for the club so far this season and he and Roberto Firmino – 7 goals and 2 assists in his last 11 Premier League games – may again make the difference,” Owen told BetVictor.
Liverpool FC have the chance to move five points clear of Tottenham in the top-four race with victory over Huddersfield ahead of Spurs’ clash against Manchester United at Wembley on Wednesday night.
The Reds signed Virgil van Dijk in a £75m deal from Southampton earlier in the January transfer window.
