Tip Sheffield United FC - Liverpool
Both Liverpool and Sheffield United are desperate for three points ahead of their clash at Bramall Lane. Hosts Sheffield are stuck at the bottom of the table, with 11 points while Liverpool have dropped to sixth place with 40 points. Sheffield United showed signs of revival earlier on, with six wins in 11 matches but three losses in the last four matches have rolled back most of the gains. Scoring hasn’t been their strongest trait but failure to hit the net in the last two matches has come at a high cost. Sheffield have three straight losses in the league and the gap between them and survival has opened up to 14 points. The most recent loss, 1-0 to Fulham was particularly a big blow to Sheffield as both sides are in the relegation battle. The team recently beat Manchester United at Old Trafford and would be wondering why it can’t be done at home against an off-color Liverpool. The Blades have an advantage in having three straight home matches, and they have to make this count. However, they have three losses in the last five home league games.
Liverpool have already conceded their title and at the moment sit outside the European slots. After four straight losses in the league, playing the bottom side should be the perfect tonic for the battered Reds. Once considered among the best defensive sides, Liverpool head here with no clean sheet in the last seven league matches. They have scored five goals in the last five league matches but conceded 11 in the same period. Most of Liverpool’s woes have been occasioned by injuries in the squad. Skipper Jordan Henderson became the latest addition to the injury list with a hip strain suffered in the last game. Goalkeeper Alisson Becker may also miss this game on compassionate grounds, but Diogo Jota could make a return. The Reds have three wins in their last 11 away league matches and have garnered 17 points from a possible 36 in 12 away matches.

While they’ve been down, they’ll head to this game as firm favorites, their hosts having fared worse, and in a longer spell. Liverpool have lost to much stronger opponents and though they still have injuries to key players, we don’t expect them to lose here. A win for the Reds is the best bet.
