Sheffield United vs Liverpool Match Preview
Sheffield United aim for a back-to-back Merseyside double in the Premier League by ending Liverpool’s 100% start to the season – but Saturday’s hosts are expected to fall short.
The Blades would surely be happy to hold the team with a five-point lead at the top of the table to a draw, following their terrific 2-0 victory away to Everton last weekend which meant they are level, goal difference apart, with Tottenham, Manchester United and Chelsea.
It has been an excellent start straight after promotion for Chris Wilder’s side, but the only worry is that their away form is better than their home results and they suffered a third Bramall Lane defeat this term against Sunderland in the Carabao Cup this week.
Liverpool advanced in that competition and, of course, they have won five out of five in the league – their five-point advantage is the biggest ever at this stage and they can, of course, make it eight by prevailing in south Yorkshire before their rivals play later on.
A slight worry for Jurgen Klopp’s side is that Liverpool’s record at this venue has always been poor (see stats above) but that really should not be a factor in the minds of players who were not even born when most of that history was taking place.
There is much to like about Sheffield United and we think they will put up a good fight here, but ultimately Liverpool are backed to keep setting their ferocious early pace in the title race.
