Liverpool: The Reds benefit from a little more rest and despite starting some backups, they can get a strong result with the attack looking sharp to remain undefeated in the league. The Reds find a groove early in getting the ball forward on the counter.
Sheffield United: No longer in the top six after failing to win any of its lat two games, Sheffield is in a tough little stretch here with back-to-back games against Manchester City and Liverpool. The 2-0 loss at City was expected last Sunday, but this team really struggled with accuracy passing and didn’t even record a shot on goal despite some decent creativity. They’ll need a bit of good fortune here, be it a penalty kick or Liverpool just having an off night in front of goal.
Liverpool vs. Sheffield United prediction
The Reds don’t break much of a sweat and win comfortably.
