Sheffield United vs Liverpool: Betting Tips and Preview

Chris Wilder will be delighted at his team
occupying a top six position in the Premier League. However, his delight may be
short lived considering that Liverpool are in town this weekend. The defending
European champions have a 100% record in the Premier League after the recent
success over Chelsea. The Reds have already built up a five-point advantage
over Manchester City and Klopp will not be looking to drop points against a
newly promoted outfit.

Bramall Lane has always been a stronghold
for the Blades but they have struggled on this ground in the top tier of
English football. The likes of Southampton and Leicester City have already been
able to pick up victories on this ground. Liverpool, meanwhile, have a
wonderful away record so far in the division with wins over Burnley, Chelsea,
and Southampton. It is very hard to pick problematic positions within the
visitors. If one were to nit-pick, Adrian is not on par with Alisson in between
the sticks. However, Adrian has still made some wonderful saves for Liverpool
in recent times.

Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander Arnold were crucial for Liverpool in the victory at Stamford Bridge, as they were able to contribute in attack and defence in equal measure. Meanwhile, the front three – Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino – remain as one of the best in the business and they should ensure a busy afternoon for Sheffield United’s defence. Chris Wilder will be disappointed with his team’s scoring just twice in the home games this season. Hence, the game should be an easy affair for Liverpool’s defence, which is already proving to be quite resilient. Virgil van Dijk may not have picked up the first best player award but he will marshal the defence. Liverpool can be expected to keep a clean sheet at 2.20.
