Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner has admitted that his side's 3-0 Premier League loss to Liverpool was a fair result.
Despite a solid first-half performance, the Terriers crumbled after the break, as the Reds ran out comfortable 3-0 winners with goals from Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Georginio Wijnaldum.
Assessing his team's performance in the wake of the defeat, via the Yorkshire Post, Wagner contended that Liverpool deserved their win, stating:
"I would say at the end it was a fair result. Until the first goal we played defensively very well, we neutralised them. I haven't seen Anfield so quiet until the first goal.

"After we conceded the first goal we conceded the second from a set-play and Liverpool showed their offensive power. I am not sure if we are able to win the game because we hadn't any opportunities in the offence but we can take something for sure."
"We learned we are able to defend and not to give a lot of opportunities away even against the top guns but you have to make it from the first to the final whistle. If you give one small chance away, they will punish you."
Wagner's side were unable to follow up their shock 2-1 victory over Manchester United last weekend with a similar result, but will be raring to go again in their next Premier League game against West Bromwich Albion.
The Terriers have been largely solid at home so far this season, and they will be sure give the Baggies a run for their money at the John Smith's Stadium.
