Sheffield United v Liverpool: match preview

·1-min read

Liverpool have been all over the place recently and deserved to lose against Everton but Sheffield United present an open goal for Jürgen Klopp’s side to get back on track. Injuries are mounting for Chris Wilder much like the pressure of relegation as the drop looms ever larger. United will hope to exploit Liverpool’s patchwork defence but as the cliche states: attack is the best form of defence. Ping it up to Mohamed Salah and let him take care of Phil Jagielka. A possible victory of sorts over Everton as the former Blue is unlikely to still have the legs to hold off Liverpool’s athletic attacking unit. Graham Searles
