David Wagner is hoping Huddersfield can repeat last season’s surprise victory over Manchester United when Liverpool come to Town.

A year ago Huddersfield beat United to end a six-game winless run and Wagner is hoping history repeats itself on Saturday evening when his side takes on Liverpool.

On the face of it, the chances look slim with the Reds flying high at the top of the table and Town in the bottom three but Wagner is hoping they can pull off another shock to kick-start their season.

‘At least it gives us the feeling it’s possible (against Liverpool), because in football you never know what happens,’ he said.

‘And I don’t think we were on the best run before we played Manchester United either, so whatever happens before you play doesn’t count on the Saturday.

‘We have to focus on ourselves, absolutely. The good thing is I know more of what is in the opposition manager’s head than I usually know, this is the only good thing.

‘But how we prepare, how we analyse and our meetings will be like we do with all our opponents, with maybe a little bit more knowledge of what is going on in the opposition manager’s head, nothing more.’
