Huddersfield have a chance against 'vulnerable' Liverpool - David Wagner

Liverpool look "vulnerable" ahead of Tuesday night's encounter at the John Smith's Stadium, according to Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner.

Huddersfield are looking to end their own six-game winless run in the Premier League against a Liverpool side who have just recorded back-to-back losses.

Last week saw Liverpool's 18-match unbeaten run come to an end at Swansea City before they were knocked out of the FA Cup -- their most realistic chance of silverware this season -- by West Bromwich Albion at the weekend.

"Liverpool have lost two games in a row. They look vulnerable at the minute," Wagner said. "Does it mean we will be successful? No. Does it mean we have a chance? Absolutely.

"We have in every game, especially here at the John Smith's Stadium, and if there's a chance we will be there to grab it with both hands."

Jurgen Klopp and David Wagner are old friends.

Wagner and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp are extremely close friends and first faced each other at Anfield in October when Liverpool won 3-0.

"We have a friendship and a relationship which is extraordinary, but tomorrow night at 8 p.m. -- this doesn't matter," Wagner added.

"It's all about Huddersfield against Liverpool and we are both in a situation where we need the points.

"Liverpool can have all the points in the Premier League, but not tomorrow night and for this we will fight for every yard in the stadium to cause them the biggest problem they can ever have.

"Everyone can surprise everyone. Even if I think I know him well enough that there will not be major surprises, which is what I expect -- not from the individuals and not from the setup which he will use."
