Sheffield Utd vs Liverpool Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Sheffield Utd vs Liverpool should be a pre-decided contest but you can always expect action when Liverpool are involved. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

This is a gamble knowing that Sheffield United are the weakest team in the league right now but when you look at the stats, it makes it worth taking a small risk for the higher odds. Sheffield United are set to change their manager and this often boosts the morale in the team and they perform better for a few weeks. On the other end, Liverpool may be far better overall but their defense has been quite problematic away from home. They conceded at least one goal in every single away match this season, even against Bournemouth and Luton.

Player to Score Prediction: Mohamed Salah

It is always difficult to find good odds when one of the top sides faces the weakest team. Everything is in favor of Liverpool here and bookmakers expect an easy win and a lot of goals. We believe that it is better to bet on a player to score here. Mohamed Salah continues to be world class and has scored 10 goals in 14 Premier League matches this season. He should have an easy task penetrating Sheffield's terrible defense. The hosts have conceded 39 goals in 14 matches this season.

Correct Score Prediction: 3-1 to Liverpool

Liverpool have won only one of their last five away games in all competitions and they cannot afford to make more mistakes, especially in the Premier League. Sheffield are the weakest team and they just got their manager sacked. They may improve but we do not think that it will happen within three days. Liverpool have to take an early advantage and then continue to score. When we compare the Sheffield Utd vs Liverpool line ups, we think that these teams cannot even be compared. Sheffield are the smallest team in the league while Liverpool have one of the most expensive squads in the world.

Sheffield United's Predicted Line-up vs Liverpool

Sheffield are having one of the worst Premier League seasons we have ever seen and the reasons for that are more than one or two. Not only do they have the lowest-valued squad in the league but they have been troubled by numerous injuries. For this game alone, they have listed eight players as missing and this number includes some of their top athletes. Here is our predicted line-up based on what Sheffield have available:

Foderingham – Trusty, Robinson, Ahmedhodzic, Thomas, Ahmedhodzic – Norwood, Fleck, Hamer, Cameron – Archer

Liverpool's Predicted Line-up vs Sheffield United

Liverpool have significantly stronger players on literally every position and even if they come out with reserves, should be able to win this match. The fact remains that their away performances have not been perfect over the past couple of months and we expect Klopp to come out with most of his star players. Keep in mind that Liverpool are also playing in Europe, and Klopp has to rest some of his players this week. Moreover, Thiago, Jota, Matip, Robertson, Bajcetic, and Alisson will also be out for this match. Here is our predicted line-up:

Kelleher – Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Tsimikas – Mac Allister, Elliott, Endo – Diaz, Nunez, Salah
