His absence was clearly felt by the Terriers, who shipped five goals without reply as the Reds continued their surge towards their maiden title of the Premier League era, and first in England's top flight since 1990.

Huddersfield manager Jan Siewert confirmed post-match that the Caltex Socceroos midfielder would have scans to determine the extent of his injury.

To Asia, and it was the exact same scoreline facing Milos Degenek at full time as his Al-Hilal side were shocked in the first leg of their King's Cup of Champions semi-final.

The Saudi Pro League leaders slumped to a 5-0 loss to Al-Taawoun at the King Saud University Stadium, leaving Degenek and his teammates facing an almighty task to progress to the cup final.
