Taken off after 70 minutes, Son scored his first in the 27th minute, dribbling around Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl and slotting home off the post, and added the second in the 54th with a glancing header off a cross from Harry Kane on the right.

Mohamed Salah goals and Liverpool victories have been the tale over recent months and see Jurgen Klopp's side bidding for the Premier League's runners-up spot, as well as putting together a run in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

"I think Arsenal are too far away to seriously worry about".

Winston Reid, making his first league start since January 4, was stretchered off in the 27th minute with what appeared to be a knee injury.
