The match is over.
Liverpool look to extend their uneaten start to the season by picking up three more points at Bramall Lane. But Sheffield United have started their season brightly and will feel that they are up to the task.
Sheffield United have not scored a lot of goals this season so far, but managed to win 2-0 at Everton last week without playing particularly well. The home crowd could play a part in the Blades putting up a good fight against Liverpool.
Although Sheffield United will be up for this game after the win at Everton, there are not many neutrals that believe that they will be able to take any points off Liverpool, who have looked the real deal so far this season.
Liverpool have won every single Premier League match this season – and have averaged almost three goals a game. There should be clear daylight between these two sides.
Head to Head
It has been a while since these two clubs last met. But Liverpool hold the upper hand – the last time Sheffield United won this fixture at home in the league was way back in 1992.
Liverpool to win
Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United team have taken to the Premier League well – but facing Liverpool theses days can turn into a damage limitation exercise very quickly. Expect another three points for Jurgen Klopp’s side here.
