Sheffield United vs Liverpool Team News

Wilder is still without defensive midfielder Sander Berge. The midfielder scored the penalty against Liverpool in the reverse fixture this season. He is a big miss for Wilder and isn’t expected back until next month. It is likely that Sheffield United will sell Berge at the end of the season due to the size of his contract. There won’t be any shortage of suitors seeking to sign Berge.

John Egan and Jack O’Connell are both ruled out of the match due to their respective injuries. Egan has an ankle issue and O’Connell has a knee problem. Wilder is once again without striker Lys Mousset due to a knock while Jack Robinson is ruled out for an undisclosed reason.

Injuries continue to be an issue for Liverpool. Last weekend against Everton, Jordan Henderson went down with a hamstring injury in Liverpool’s 2-0 loss. Henderson is set to miss around six to eight weeks. Fabinho is still out of action according to the latest reports and Ozan Kabak could partner Ben Davies at the back. Kabak has not been great since arriving.

Diogo Jota is still ruled out despite being back in training. A lot of Liverpool’s goal scoring issues began with Jota’s knee injury in December. James Milner is also ruled out through injury.

Based on Liverpool’s defence with Kabak at the back, Sheffield United could get on the scoresheet. Kabak has been part of a defence that has conceded five goals over the course of the last two matches in the Premier League. Liverpool will be taking on a poor Sheffield United defence and could break out of their scoring drought. The Blades have conceded 41 goals.

Mohamed Salah to score anytime @4/5 - BET

Mohamed Salah leads the Premier League in scoring with 17 goals. He has accounted for 38% of Liverpool’s scoring. The club are really counting on him to get goals. Salah has scored Liverpool’s last two goals in the league. One was a penalty against Manchester City and the other was a strike versus Leicester City. If the Reds get a penalty, Salah will take it. Right now, no other player is showing they can score goals.

Over 2.5 goals scored @4/6 - BET NOW

Four of Sheffield United’s last six games finished with over 2.5 goals scored. Their defence has not been good this season and Liverpool have the potential to score goals against them. Despite Liverpool’s current goal scoring issues, they certainly can come out and get the goals needed to win and see over 2.5 goals scored.

Four of Liverpool’s last six games ended with over 2.5 goals tallied. Their defence has looked awful with Kabak at the back and there has been a big drop off all season long from both Andrew Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold. The former has played a lot of football for club and country over the last 12 months. He looks tired and neither is dual-threat they were last season.

Liverpool should win against Sheffield United this weekend, but the game could be a bit closer than expected. The Blades could take advantage of the Reds’ poor defensive record over the last six games.
