Caltex Socceroos midfielder Aaron Mooy played a full game but couldn’t help Huddersfield avoid a disappointing defeat at Liverpool on Sunday (AEDT).
Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum all netted second-half goals as the Reds secured a comfortable 3-0 victory at Anfield.
The hosts were frustrated by a resolute Terriers outfit in the opening stanza with Mohamed Salah spurning a golden chance from the penalty spot.
However, Daniel Sturridge eased the simmering tension inside Anfield five minutes after the interval, capitalising on an error by Tommy Smith to break the deadlock and score his 100th goal in club football.
Roberto Firmino made it 2-0 eight minutes later, heading home a James Milner corner to give Liverpool breathing space in the first league meeting of the two clubs since 1972.
Georginio Wijnaldum added a third as Huddersfield, who have still not won away since the opening weekend of the campaign, were bought back down to earth with a bump after their shock 2-1 home win over Manchester United a week ago.
Huddersfield have now failed to score in four consecutive away league games for the first time since October 2007, when they were in the third tier.
Mooy’s side next face West Bromwich Albion in the League next Sunday.
