class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The Premier League champions have lost their last four top-flight games and our tipster is expecting a tight affair when they travel to Bramall Lane
Liverpool have a prime opportunity to pick up their first Premier League win in almost a month when they travel to Sheffield United on Sunday evening.
With only 13 games left in the season, there is not much time left for the Reds to get their top-four push back on track and three points at Bramall Lane could prove vital.
Sheffield United vs Liverpool Latest Odds
With 14 positions separating the two teams, bet365 make Jurgen Klopp’s champions just 4/11 (1.36) to end their run of four straight league defeats.
The Blades have actually won two of their last four home games but are 7/1 (8.0) outsiders to pile yet more misery on Liverpool.
A draw would certainly be welcomed by the host, who have just 11 points, and that is a 4/1 (5.0) shot.
Sheffield United vs Liverpool Team News
Jack O’Connell is nearing a return for Chris Wilder’s men but this game comes too soon for him, with Sander Berge, John Egan, Jack Robinson, Chris Basham, Jayden Bogle and Lys Mousset also all out.
Klopp could welcome back Diogo Jota after over two months out whilst Fabinho faces a fitness test, but Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, James Milner and Jordan Henderson are injured.
Sheffield United vs Liverpool Preview
As if Liverpool fans thought their disaster of a title defence could not get any worse, a 2-0 home defeat against rivals Everton last weekend really rubbed salt into the wounds.
That result made it five defeats in nine games and the Reds have scored only eight times during that run, being held to nil on five occasions and conceding 14 goals.
It is likely they will have it tough once again this weekend as whilst Sheffield United look set for relegation, they have conceded fewer than two goals in seven of their last 12 Premier League outings and will likely set up to absorb pressure on Sunday.
Sheffield United vs Liverpool Tips and Predictions
Liverpool’s woes in the final third are well-documented and, with the Blades having shipped more than once in only four of their last 12 games, bet365’s price of 6/5 (2.20) on under 2.5 match goals looks a strong odds-against selection for this clash.
Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
